OH thinks it could be a shelter in case of bushfire. I would need to be convinced.
Only if you buried it in the ground. Otherwise it would make a very effective oven.
Even then I wouldn't get in it It would probably still get to the temperatures of an oven in the ground, unless it was 20ft under. Then without correct precautions you couldn't shut the door and if you could you'd suffocate without BA.
Not worth it
And to the OP - I think it would work well. Lockable, waterproof completely, large space and cheap. You can also easily make alterations to put saddle racks/bridle racks/rug racks on the as the walls are sturdy all the way around. Need more space? Buy another, no need for permits, foundations, builders or really any complicated process and way cheaper than extending or renovating. Only thing I'd suggest really would be paint it to your surroundings or to match the surrounding buildings, because even though they're versatile as, they're very distinctive and an eyesore if they don't match the surroundings
Depends on your council.
There was an article in our local paper recently about people thinking you dont need permits then finding out too late that they do.
If it sparkles or its fluffy its all good.
