We have written before that containers can be buried for a root cellar or storm shelter.  Click here for previous posts and videos. However, rarely do we get a picture of our warnings coming scarily true.  In a recent story out of Florida, the police found a container buried under shed.  Floridians don’t normally have basements, so this was unusual in itself.  However, this was one looks like it was not built to last.  The container was not properly braced on the outside or over the roof, so the container is collapsing.  We cannot stress enough the importance of making sure that you properly brace your container and take your local geology into consideration.
