I didn't much get the sense the current owner knows what it's supposed to be used for. It more struck me that in the event of a nuclear emergency, he would drive to the nearest McDonalds and start ordering McNuggets until the end came. Such is life.

That sure was a he k of a lot of earth to move out in 5 gallon buckets. I'm tired just thinking about it.
I'd never be able to build something like that. As soon as I started jackhammering our garage floor, my wife would have me committed.

Wow. Forty five feet of excavation carried out in buckets. I wonder where he dumped it?

My dad has a bomb shelter in his basement behind a hidden wall. But nothing like this!

There's still a lot of bomb shelters around. Simple because it takes $ to fill them up. But real estate agents tell me they don't call them that anymore. They call them root cellars or wine cellars. I mean think about it. New family starting a new life, immediately confronted with a nuclear fallout shelter. As soon as they started calling it yuppie stuff they took off.

My friend growing up had a so called "wine celler" in his parents house. It was behind a 1000 or 2000lbs steel blast door on rollers, down a spiral staircase about 15-20 feet. It had a/c and ventilation whereas the rest of the house did not it. When I think about it now it was a pretty well thought out place.

I wouldn't be advertising it on YouTube or be giving tours! Wonder how he got that door down there?GI3
1): agreed, hopelessly clueless owner gave away a potentially priceless asset for no reason at all.

2): poured cement?

I know of another house in Washington State that has it's own underground 100yrd shooting range you enter from the garage. Think I'd like to have both.
