Anyone has more than a B1 basement? Going underground can increase living space and is actually quite space. Imagine putting a piece of hollow metal underground, you could live in the hollow space for a long time without breaking it, not from earth quakes and any type of disasters. Well the things you need to worry about is ventilation, and a way to support a room underground


P.S Remember you can always stack it, dig a really deep hole and stack metal on top of each other

No. Why would you want to go down when you can go up?

Because up is not safe. And harder to build. You pile metals up, it falls over, you pile metal down, the earth supports them. To build downward you just throw metal down, gravity will take care of the job for you, to pile metal up you need like a lifter

I have ten. Each room dedicated to one of my, at the time, favorite waifus. In descending order, of course.

But going down is also expense with the amount of earth and rock that needs to be removed. There is also the water table you need to take into account.

Well you are not going that far down, until it gets hot, well I'll make sure it repels water, what's a water table?

You do realize that you need a crap load of money in order to even make this possible.

I remember a scene from the anime Kaiji where a rich guy is asking one of his underlings what they considered to qualify someone as "rich".

The other person responded with "easy examples" of what the outside world would see as successful. Be it companies, mansions, nice cars, private jets, etc.

The boss then goes to explain that all that "so called wealth" was not representative of a truly rich person if all those things could be wiped away in an instant if there ever was nuclear war.

He then explains that the truly "rich" are those who can afford to build underground environments (cities) where they and a select few can retreat and be safe from the destruction and radiation that would engulf the planet.

They would survive and every other "rich" person would die.

But hey your a weird guy, so I let it pass when you ask weird ass questions like this.
