I thought I'd share this for those who may want to survive a doomsday scenario. From what I see; this seems to be affordable, and perhaps can be
built as a side project in your own backyard. But would like to know from ATS, how much the cost range would it be to build something like this for
survival scenarios. I'm thinking maybe 7 thousand, give or take. But Maybe it can go less, or higher depending on what you include inside.
I would personally add a bush with thorns to cover the entrance.
But it is a fun idea for survival purposes. Thought this would inspire some of you to build your own?
What are your thoughts ATS?
Surely they had a full bar in there I hope??? Otherwise what's the point???
No, just kidding. That was pretty cool. But anymore than two people in there for very long and you'd both go completely crazy. If you did the work
yourself you might be able to pull it off around 7 to 10 grand. It would be a lot of work too. That one in the video was pretty nice too. I'd want
it a bit bigger though.
I probably shouldn't comment, just because I'd never opt to live in one of these. But, I think the quonset hut configuration would be a whole lot
sturdier than a damned pipe. It might take some assembly effort, but burying one of them big ol' cylinders underground don't look like no walk in the
park to me.
Yeah, I think I'd get cabin fever real quick in something like that. Plus you know it would feel even smaller actually being in it. Pictures often
times make things like that seem bigger than they really are. Anyone who's spent much time in a motor home or trailer knows that although they are
nice, they get a bit small after a while living in one.
Studies show that confinement leads to brain degradation and insanity. I used to really be all about wanting something like this and somewhere along
the line had the idea that I really don't want to live like that.
It would be an awesome get away or doghouse if you will. Having to survive there for any extended period of time doesn't seem a life worth living.
I have a pdf somewhere that shows how to build underground houses. It's from the 60's and it's pretty cool. It shows how to build them really cheap
if you want also. If I can find it I'll post a link to it. It's actually a really cool book.
I just don't think I'd like one of these, Too easy for someone to just raise the lid, throw in a tear gas grenade or a fragment grenade and pop you
when you come out. I don't like the idea of being cornered that easy.
That is why I said I would add a bush with thorns at the entrance. Only way to open it is through the inside. The idea behind this one is to
build it in a location for survival purposes where you would be hidden from view. However a metal detector may be able to point your location. I
would build one of these in a mountain as a secondary option.
I would put the location where only I would know. Should be top secret, secure for family members. Keep in mind, this is to prepare for a doomsday
scenario, and underground would be safe from radiation etc.
Here's that old pdf book I was talking about earlier. You can download it for free as a pdf. It shows the people actually living in them too.
They're totally living off the land and they describe it all first hand. It has some actual photos a little way into it.
The $50 and Up Underground House Book
Crap....Just search google for the title. You'll find it. I'm too stupid to make the link work at the moment.
Keep in mind that the book is about making a true underground house. Not a shelter or bunker or survival place. They are actual houses.
