Unfortunately, tornado season is here and even started a bit early due to spring-like weather. We all remember the devastation from last year as storms left damaging effects across several states throughout April and May. Since then, people across the country have started searching for safe, underground storm shelters and bunkers for their homes. And, interestingly enough, some of these bunkers aren’t just to wait out the storm. Some are even purchasing and building these underground units in preparation for Doomsday. So, what do these bunkers look like? Well, if you’re super fancy, you can stop digging and reserve a spot (for $25,000 a person!) in this modern end-of-times bunker located in Nebraska. Most, however, are clearing land by their homes for their storm (and future) safe haven.

I’m so fascinated with the idea of bunker living and was intrigued to find out that people are turning to bunker-style homes as permanent means of living, too. I’m curious to know: Do you have a storm shelter or bunker where you live? How is it furnished or stocked, and how often do you have to open the doors and go underground? Let us know in the comments below.

    Is there a way to get any plans for the one built into the hill? Something simple? Tornadoes go by quickly so I wouldn't need extremely large, just a hidey-hole during a possible approaching tornado. Due to physical limitations it would be easier to walk in rather than go straight down many steps. Even inside pics would help and I can figure out the rest.

    You can search for earth sheltered homes and find several companies that will build something very nice for you. Or you can build with insulated concrete forms (ICF) that is sturdier than stick built.
