He said it already has 1000 yards of concrete in it and has two more floors to go. It has a full size basement theater and a 30 x 50 ft bunker off it with a huge metal door.

I'd love to have seen the foundation on it.

Sounds like ICF construction. Becoming somewhat common in parts of Canada for basements, and sometimes the entire house.
