Think as far as what?Has anyone seen this survival shelter? What do you think?
I have Not seen this link. And I have seen, I thought all of them. But looking at the dates this is a very new site.Has anyone seen this survival shelter? What do you think?
Since it is an earth shelter it is cool in the summer and warm in the winter. And here are a few advantages to underground houses and shelters, even earth bag shelters >very cool shelter
This looks exactly like what you described, is it? >I've seen something similar in England I think... They called it the hobbit house and got lots of news coverage. The inside looked really cool to because the beams were not all straight like precut lumber, they were just branches and stuff. I almost want to build just a small one sometime.
They have a incredibly high r factor(insulation) so they keep very warm but I think extreme cold/thawing could become a problem over time.Really interesting concept. Of course our freedoms don't generally extend to us being able to build our own homes. The government is of course protecting us from ourselves .... and of course allowing us to be easy prey to unscrupulous builders and home inspectors
Of course if TS really does hit the fan ... building regulations and permits may be a moot point
<edit> One thing I noticed was that the bulk of these homes are built in areas that have more clement weather than us folks up here in the North. Presumably they aren't suitable for wet/cold climates
I like it. I have seen some like it before but always good to see more pics. ****** were wise in many ways except how to keep their land from being stolen.Here's another shelter I found: www.doomers.us/forum2/index.php/topic,33926.0.html
They call it an earthlodge. It's like the Indians built.
