I used a Storm Tec-LS20 for my family. Good for 20 people if you are very, very close friends. Really good for about 6 adults for over night or a couple could live in it. It's water tight and storm proof. I stocked mine with MRE's, weapons, medical gear, water, extra clothes, a solar charger, and rum, don't forget the rum. You can't put a generator inside, so I used gel cell battery' bank to backup the LED lighting.
This isn't as large as you are looking for but for $8,500.00 I couldn't complain.

Whatever you do, ask a reputable builder for an estimate before picking up a spade. It'll cost you nothing and give you a clearer idea of what it'd take. Foundations are not to be messed with and a garage's footings might not be up to modern regs anyway. You'd never know without asking someone who does.
I don't want to sound like your mum! A lot can go wrong digging holes in buildings.
Nope people do it all the time many preppers have already done this. They are rated for the weight and have special sealant I believe to fight off rust. Google shipping container bunkers and check it out.
