The land is what makes it that valuable. It's about 25 miles from Aspen.

I wonder what sound recording would be like in that underground room...

The container house is an afterthought in comparison to the 35 acres of land in an alpine valley in Colorado.

I wonder if the mineral rights come with it.

Does the bunker come with it's own Trump?

Is there a Wifebot and a Cuckbot in the bunker?

For double the money you can get about the same amount of acres around the corner that includes a 5 bed, 4.5 bath, nearly 6k square foot home.

If you just want the land you can get even more acres around another corner for a tad over a half million. That means that stupid house is worth about a million. What a rip. I could build that half-assed home (with bunker for $100k) and even include some insulation and maybe a chimney or two.

Those were sold over 150 years ago.   It might come with water rights.

Some containers are insulated..And there are tons of different types of containers..But I'd still
not want to be there when a storm comes barreling out of the mountains..There is NOTHING there
to dampen the wind..Those decks and railings probably sing the song of their people..

Containers are not exactly designed for long term occupancy. For storage I'm told to expect about 20 years out of them.once once you start cutting them up like this? I really don't know. Maybe sealing and painting them helps. Maybe carving out windows and doorways doesn't actually shorten their lifespan.

Not all that eager to conduct first hand longitudinal study of the question.
