DIY Underground Shelter - With parts

Postby Whisper » Sun Sep 10, 2017 10:19 pm

Hey all

Somewhere around here, I posted the idea of making an underground shelter using dry stacked concrete blocks. Well, I found a place that's current that sells a roof system as well as all the parts, like air filtration, doors and all the rest. It's very possible to make a DIY safe bomb shelter for your family without breaking the bank. Your just going to have to work your butt off to do it LOL

I plan to :) I miss my PA house that came with one.


I have nothing to do with this site at all. :gunsmile:

It has to be waterproof, how are you going to do that to keep out water infiltration.?

quik solution for the harder part of a underground shelter - the roof - depending on the overall $$$$ it could be a good deal .... pouring a basement with the correct french drain system and waterproofed/insulated is done everyday ....

Very interesting....Looks like an option for an extremely well build.

I'm completely ignorant to average cost to these type items but is $20K plus all shipping cost a good deal for a 14' X 20' parts only?

I think I saw at one time a shelter company putting something just a bit smaller completely for you for a little more in cost...Also had the air filtration and blast doors and escape hatch.....Am I wrong in that recollection?

Again, I really don't know so please excuse the ignorance if I'm just way off base here....Thanks for the link.
In honor of RebNavy...RIP buddy. You made me smile. :)

Driven, are you sure you are from Kalifornia? You make a lot of sense.
