Our Family Farm has a 20’x40’ custom-version of this one, which Dad & I built years ago, and works just fine for many emergencies and TSHTF scenarios. We’ll all be going down there later, after the livestock is safe and secured.

Scoll down to bottom and imagine a h-u-g-e version of this I-beam unit. Click on bomb shelter link to see other types from that co.

(No, I don’t have any vested interest in that co, except it’s saved lives, on many occasions.)

Wow, my wife’s last apartment before we got married wasn’t that nice. (Also, it wasn’t that big!)

That’s some smart thinking to use shipping containers like that. Their rationale about the corner strength of the things makes perfect sense.

Your shelter looks like paradise compared to the one in Noble, OK that I had to run across the street and climb down into.......with 2 babies and a small satchel that contained food, water, and dry clothes for the kids. This satchel was kept by the front door so I could grab it on the way out....

Those were scary times, but I was much younger then. Today, it would just be me and the better half (for the last 50 yrs), and I have no idea where we would hide if a tornado headed our way..........
