Skip to comments.How to Build a Super Top Secret Bunker under Your House (we may need it)
Posted on 10/19/2008 1:06:38 PM PDT by doug from upland
When I built the house I just spent 7 years working on, I had a lot of days that were just plane monotonous, so I would daydream about the Next Great Project as soon as I finished the house...
If you're OCD you know exactly what I am speaking about.
Perhaps it was watching too many reruns of Stollag 17...
Maybe it was all the Underground cabins we built as kids to have a cool place to hide out in the summer.
Truthfully though I just love to build things and when I designed the house I made the bottom level only half the size of the main floor and the other half is a crawlspace about 4 foot high.
Most of my plumbing and stuff runs around the floor joists down there so I wanted enough room to have access to everything but I didn't want to build an eight foot wall, It took me 7 weeks to do the block for the garage workshop and storage room so saving 4 feet of wall seemed like a good idea.

Maybe I’ll go hide under my bed.
Two things that definately do not go together:
1. Building a TOP SECRET Bunker in your Basement
2. Posting plans, photos, and instructions of same on the Internet.
Please don’t tell my 15 year old daughter about this. She is almost too interested in survivalist crap and learning to live off the land. I have already purchased a huge book “Country Wisdom and Knowhow” for a Christmas present. If she finds out she can build a bunker she’ll probably ask her Dad to rent a backhoe.
If we lose the election, we might want spider holes, bunkers, and — you name it. Me? I’ll just hide under the bed.
Let’s win this election. Two weeks left.
Buy more ammo while you can.
Well, nothing wrong with being a good steward to the Earth that G-d called Adam to be. Our girls will be fine, I think.
Hey, I’ve been wanting one but have been claiming it would be a tornado shelter.
If Obama wins, and he clearly stole the election, I will begin preparing. I will stock up on what needs to be gathered, and I will make associations with those of like mind. I will wait and see the nation's response to full-fledged socialist rule. If they progress to Chavez-style, and look ready to make it permanent by suppressing opposition, I will become defiant and work to reverse socialism by whatever means are available.
If he wins and he doesn't cheat, I will work on the political process, but keep an eye out for repression. I don't mind losing a fair fight, so long as we still have a chance to convince our fellow citizens that we have made a terrible mistake. I think they would wake up from their stupor and realize that about a month into an Obama presidency. But that's the point when the thugocracy swings into action, attacking the dissenters, propagandizing with the MSM, shutting down talk radio, sending the FBI after internet posters, until people are afraid to do anything. We have to be ready before that happens.
We are really close to losing our Republic and our Freedom. We can "hope" that Obama is just a naive socialist, a Carter. But I think the reality will prove more sinister, and that we will find he has no respect for this country's people, it's traditions, culture or freedom, and that his main goal is to impose his will, and remake America into a socialist, weak and submissive nation.
Even better would be if McCain can pull this out. We'll find out in a few weeks.
If she does aske her Dad to rent a backhoe, tell her that a secret bunker does not involve records with the rental place and buy her a shovel and pick.
I personally think one should select several guns for home defense - those that are registered and those that don’t exist.
You have a very smart daughter. Personally, I plan on meeting as many survivalists as I can in person, to gauge if they are balanced or off-the-scale wacko. I think we will all need some sort of “quiet” network if Obama wins. I really believe this.
Just about the only real saving grace will be that the rank and file US Armed Forces will not move in lockstep with the Obamaites.
What is the best 12 ga. anti-personnel out to 100 feet? 00 buckshot was recommended in close proximity to nearby houses. I don’t have any houses closer than 200 feet.
