While it looks interesting and all that, It is always funny to me why people build these "bunker" homes in the middle of nothing? You could live in a tent out there and be safe from terrorism! The only viable targets are large population centers on the coasts. Now if the house had a closed loop air filtering system in Manhattan, then you'd have something. Not to be a buzzkill but even a cruise missle would render that thing toast. While its ability to survive fire, tornado and earthquake are admirable in a home. The ad seems to place importance on the coming of the end mentality to sell its product. Talking about the new flus and SARS. SARS was a joke. The good old fashioned flu makes SARS look like the cold in total death toll. It seems everyone is always trying to scare the hell out of everyone else. This may be annoying to some but if the whole world or just your country are destroyed, infected or whatever what's the point of having a safe house? You wouldn't be able to go fishing, to the bar, go hunting, watch NASCAR... no sir I don't want to live in that world!! I'd rather go down with the ship:)

Prairie dogs build the same thing---but without all of the concrete.

If this house was in the Black Hills, I would be buying it in a heart beat! I love the look of it and we have been looking at building something similar at least in looks to it. I wouldn't have thought to put in all the security features, but I would live there except that it is in CO. Good to know that there is another South Dakotan here!

This thing has been up for sale on the net for quite some time... the actual build is quite interesting this design (Performance building systems) is one of the few designs that was actually tested by the government before they banned nuke tests... and I think what some people fail to realize is it isnt going to be the nukes that get you it will be the fallout... I think to many people look at Hiroshima and Nagasaki and don't quite comprehend the power involved in a Thermonuclear warhead... personally I think that they should make the whole government cruise out to the Pacific Atolls every time they come up for re-election just to pop one off so that they will know what kind of power that they really are responsible for...

That house is pretty wicked cool. That rock around it might be the only thing that makes me say that, but I think I would consider buying that if it was within my means.

The price isn't high, but you would have to be to pay it.

Thats what I want after this house blows away in one of our F-4s. One way or another my next house will be a ground shelter. If I survive the tornado , it will have a pit greenhouse on the south east side for gardening and heat. I f I dont it will be a hole for my sweet ash with a black granite stone over my cremains :haha:

One could really suffer from cabin fever in that cave. Insteading of spraying concrete, couldn't one dynamite a rock and move in?
