if you have to ask how much, you can't afoard it.
For 1500 or more ,one can buy shipping containers and burry them. the have been making them into homes all over he place .

That's what I would do .

I know, but just to be able to say : "yay, I live in a missile silo" would be sooooo cool.

Realistically, burying a pair of shipping containers is where I would go too.

And more people (myself included) would buy them for that price - IF we could find them for that price in our area. By the time you pay for shipping, we are looking at $5000 for an unused, extraneous steel box. Ridiculous.

Arrow Cool But

I've heard that some of these old silos fill up with water.

With no one home and no constant pumping some of these can fill up with water depending on where it's built or if the roof leaks. I heard of one guy that had to pump out all the water so he could get started on remodeling it into a home.

Your right. When the military abandoned them, several did fill with ground water seeping in.

I read where one was purchased and is now used to teach suba diving.

It ventilates to the outside. I am confused. Is this a bomb shelter or a Nuclear shelter?

Yes the shipping containers are easier to be had in the port cities. If you have any trucker friends this shipping expense can be curbed. Allot of truckers hate to dead head from point a to point b just because it makes for a rough ride. Contact the local fgt Cos and see if you can get a dead head rate.

Actually we hate to dead head because we don't get paid for it. At least owner operators don't.

I want to do the container route. Seems to be more cost effective. Though the dirt/sand bag house route looks good too.

Having empty pockets makes for a rough ride.

You know all of these bunkers have Russian nukes aimed directly at them?

Still a good idea though! For the serious SHTFer!

I knew a guy that worked at the headquarters at McCord AFB in Washington near Tacoma. He related that that bunker leaked something fierce.

That said, you can get a bunker for sale. Try this link http://www.missilebases.com/

The bunkers are just like anything else out there. People will take your arms and legs from you just so you can afford insane costs.

Cool, yes. Just pray if you do the Russians and Chinese no longer target that site. You know, government inefficiency and all that.

Looks way to big and complex to be useful for one man or a family. I'd only be able to take up a room with me and my supplies.
