    First you have to dig a hole in the ground. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole filled with theends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with noting in it to sit down on or to eat.

    Put down a shipping container. Maybe bury two more to the sides if you need space, they need to be lower to maintain slope, you will need steps inside.
    Then put a tarp over them and cover with dirt.

      cut out a big notch in a hillside in the shape of your building foot print.
      build you dwelling into the hillside
      seal it really good and provide ample drainage
      cover it over with soil
      reshape hillside around your now buried dwelling to look natural
      plant grass or whatever on top
      have some tea and a good pipe full of long bottom leaf

      >cover with dirt.
      >cover it over with soil
      Before anyone goes any further, let's just stop and talk how heavy dirt is.
      1 ft^3 of DRY topsoil is ~100lbs
      1 ft^3 of WET topsoil is ~140lbs

      A shipping container is designed to take this much weight BUT and and important BUT it transfers the load at the corners. You will need to brace the internals with a serious amount of beams if you intend on covering it with a lot of soil.

      Your best bet is to use shipping containers but shape the roof structure into a hill. Then cover that and apply 1ft of soil, plant grass.

      Not with shipping containers and those who have no personal experience modding containers shut the frick up on that subject. I can go into detail why containers suck for that use case but this is a larp thread wagie dream or you would not need to ask because you would know how to find information on the internet.

      You study successful underground housing like but much more including all supporting technologies. You put in a few hundred hours (nothing at all considering your other entertainment is probably a waste of time since it's not educational) study including local building codes applicable to the land you already own (no land? LARPer!). Precast concrete shapes and depending on location perhaps some large steel culvert or a steam cleaned tank car tank can be delivered in most of civilization. Bring money, equipment, skill and motivation. Build your supporting workshop (a legit use for a 40ft HC container aboveground) first for equipment storage and to live in so you can guard the site against being emptied by thieves.

      People who do hardcore shit are hardcore. Decide if that's you. If you're just dreaming that time is wasted.

      again, that's not how hobbit holes are made
      that's how modern idiots do "underground construction"
      look up how historical mines are made and reinforced

      in LOTR lore the hobbit holes were dug out, not built then buried
      the reason Bag End got so big is because it's a multigenerational home and people kept digging out and finishing out more rooms

      your best bet is to not use a shipping container at all, they're not strong enough to bury, they were engineered for a completely different purpose

        100% agreed. Replace the word "shipping container" with "coffin" if you intend on doing this.

        Heat trap and to kill curious predators innawoods. Their freedom of movement is restricted for easy spearing and clubbing. This also applies to people. For example the Ik people built their huts to force those entering into vulnerable positions so attackers are easy to kill.

        All people did in ancient times is desperately try to survive in between raiding, rape and robbery. Savages gonna savage.

    op heres a real answer
    dugouts are utter shit in reality
    you watch the hobbit and think you'll get a cozy warm home that traps heat in as if the dirt and grass is one big blanket going over your home
    in reality dirt is cold, its amazing at insulating, so well in fact, that it stays completely cold no matter how much you try to heat it up, and it will make your dugout cold aswell
    then theres the issue of moisture, there will be so much moisture
    you will not only regularly deal with mold and rotting wood, but you can expect floods too unless you manage to find the lottery of hills to dig into and know how to properly seal and drain shit
    if you want to realistically do this, use stone or brick walls, insulate it, and then add an interior wall like dry wall or plastered bricks, and build the floor with a consierable space below for drainage, that slopes down out of the hobbit hole, and using nothing that can rot (bricks) to hold the floor up
    and dont use concrete or cement mortar at all, use only stone and bricks with lime mortar because it will shed water and prevent buildup
    if you want to have a roof that doesnt cave in and doesnt need as much support, build a vaulted ceiling, which should fit your aesthetics anyways
    not that youre really gonna do it though

      also i forgot to mention that you should build in really solid, strong soil, maybe clay or something, or hell quarry into a relatively easy stone to work with like limestone and use the blocks you pull out to build your walls and kitchen floor

      Isn't the underground temperature in north america around 10c? That's perfect for living in, as long as you block the wind you won't get cold. If you do, just throw on a light jacket.

      OP is the usual wagie homosexual who is desperate to larp then creates container, bunker, tiny house etc threads.

      Serious people do not repeat do not repeat do not have any reason to ask PrepHole how to build homes because serious people KNOW HOW TO FIND INFO easily. None of it is hard.

        thats only half true
        the individual building techniques is sonething you can find anywhere
        but it takes a good discussion with a variety of people to put a bunch of techniques together to create a specific idea
        op can find out how to dig, how to insulate, how to deal with drainage, what materials are best for being against soil, etc. but if you think that just you alone are enough to combine everything without leaving anything important out you're gonna end up with a shitty hobbit hole
        i agree with you in that op is a larping homosexual, but theres no harm in these threads since it introduces more of a hypothetical scenario of what you need to do to build a specific kind of house to the people posting in the thread
        if he's reposting the thread all the time or bumpgayging and being annoying then yea frick him but thats not really the case here

    Dig into a round faced hill, shoring up with cylindrical bracing in sections as you go, like you would a mine. You'd basically start a tunnel and then cut the face of the hill back after you have enough structure to fix the repose of the soil at your entrance, remove whatever distance of shoring you expose. If you cut it back before you started digging into the face it would probably collapse on you. I'm not even sure rock would be safer, you have to know rock pretty well to judge what's stable
