Underground Living...A Home & A Bunker!
Underground construction, back East in Upstate NY where I worked, cost a large percentage of constructions costs for water-proofing, due to snow and rain...and ground water.
Now remote land in the high desert or mountains, requires less waterproofing and more modern materials exist.
Depending on family size and how many you need to "shelter" will obviously determine your costs. My current studio apartment is 12" 6" X 20' 6" (256 Sq Ft) It has everything I need. If built as a stand alone cabin in the woods, I'd add a loft for a bedroom, and a deck or porch. Plenty big enough for one person.
Built as a cave home, or into a hillside, adding aluminum security shutters on exterior windows. You have a secure area. Easily under $100,000.
$50 & Up Underground Homes!
