I don't see the replies as negative, more concern.
Many people under estimate the weight of soil on an underground structure.
A ten foot long by eight wide structures with just a foot of earth on top is carrying getting on for two and a half tons (if my mental arithmetic is correct, and it's late and I'm tired), and thats dry, soaking wet you can probably add the best part of another ton. Most people add a few feet of soil, that starts to mount up.
I don't know the OP or what level of skills he has but for me a project like this would be taken to an expert to work out the loading and design.
Not having a go at anybody, just want people to be safe.

Bunker design is not that simple. the UK government issued a series of designs in a book "Domestic Nuclear Shelters - Technical Guidance." The intention was to give some level of advice on proper design. It is worth looking at as even so called professional designs do not seem to match the tech spec that they suggest. Level of reinforcement in concrete is a good example.

I posted a few pages to this thread a while ago. The information did cover waterproofing but I suspect things will have moved on.

Right floor loosely swept and crap dumped in landfill if anyone wants their membership to the forum to follow the dumped posts crack on! If not keep it on topic RE: coatings

since the bickering continued despite my asking nicely for it to stop I've left it to cool for a few days, had a tidy up and reopened the thread THINK BEFORE YOU POST ;) .... I have a 7 year old at home and can easily contain her with a stern look! On here I have a carefully calibrated metric ban hammer with laser sights and gps!





Remember the ww2 Anderson shelters were only 1-2 mm thick corrugated tin. And they took some weight and lasted the duration
