Basey, this character sounds like a gun knowit all that was here not long ago talking like he is the only one who knows. and his way is the only way.
Sea cans suck for underground dwellings their strength is on 4 corners.
What did I type that for it is already common knowledge.

The above grade back fill method of earth shelter makes sensce, the drainage issues dissapear,
And you can prolly get away, for a shelter, with minimal surface prepp, your rail car sound like a lot stronger basis. the video with the buried can looks like a very costly method to me. I have seen a few above ground applications that look ok. but too many people see the sea cans stacked and think that they are indestructable.
I could be wrong but wouldn't it be cheaper to just build a "normal" basement from reinforced concrete with a roof system to bear the required roof weight for completely underground structures??:scratch
