For the purposes of temporary shelter, most basic underground bunkers will perform as hoped. There are various types of underground bunkers that are commercially available and potentially affordable by an average American.
When considering the costs related to any bunker project, it certainly makes sense to have some sort of insurance policy in place to cover the bunker and its contents from loss due to theft or vandalism. Of course if money is no object, you can purchase a sophisticated military-grade bunker costing millions of dollars, which will reliably serve the purposes related to long-term underground habitation during long-term disaster scenarios.
These ‘bunkers’ are designed by experts and incorporate technologically advanced life support systems, as well as various military-grade security measures, also costing hundreds of thousands of dollars and more. Too many people wrongly believe that you can survive long-term underground in the cheaper underground bunkers. Another common misconception among survivalists and Preppers is that any bunker will be a secret from other people. Tactically speaking, it’s also important to give careful consideration to what you would do during long-term crises if your bunker was discovered while you were occupying it. Considering the use-rate, the costs and the risks, bunkers are not the slam-dunk solution that many people would have you believe.
The Bunkhouse could provide short-and long-term housing in a disaster, or survival situation. I live in Africa, and I would love to have this, but I need to see a complete picture of the box or pallet that this comes as.
Having lived through many hurricanes & tornados, this concept is a blessing from God!!!
It’s miserable living in the aftermath of one of these storms with no shelter, much less anything else.
Hi I saw your video and would like to have more info on all the supplies I need to build something like this. The Television Critics Association (TCA) has once again kicked off its Summer Press Tour and networks are ready to wow with their new series. Tia Torres was in attendance along with one of her pit bull rescue Baker Red (can I just gush one second over how adorable he was) and one of the parolees she employs, Earl Moffett. An interesting fact that Torres shared during the panel was the fact that some of the fame from the show has of course helped, but it has also backfired a bit on them in that more dogs are being dumped at their door now. As an advocate for pit bulls, Torres shared that her and her children have all been bitten by dogs before but none of them was a pit bull.
Later, she also made a point to say that she doesn’t believe every dog can be rehabilitated and they make sure to look out for the good ones and make sure they are safe for public safety.
Animal Planet has landed itself quite the catch (pun not intended) with The Whale, a TV movie starring Martin Sheen based on the true account of the sinking of The Essex whaling ship. Animal Planet didn’t have a panel for the movie, but did share the trailer, which looks quite impressive. AHC (American Heroes Channel) will premiere its new series Gunslingers on July 20, which tells the true stories behind the infamous icons and conflicts of the Wild West.


Discovery Channel showed off their reality series, Naked and Afraid, which pairs complete strangers (a man and a woman) and leaves them stranded and naked with only one personal item each and their survival expertise to survive for 21 days. And for those wondering, the nakedness is blurred, sorry… or maybe that’s a good thing? If the world were to end tomorrow, wouldn’t it be nice to have an underground lair to retreat to?
However the technologies that affect bunkers have changed radically over the past 20 years!
And when it comes to shelter from a passing tornado, even some homemade bunkers are adequate for the few hours of shelter needed. In most cases these bunkers involve what is essentially a large steel culvert (10-foot diameter pipe) that has been modified to include some amenities, basic entrance and exit, and a very basic air filtration system. However, given the locations of most bunkers, most insurance companies won’t offer any kind of coverage, so the capital investment that is made for the bunker and its contents (which might exceed the costs of the bunker) will not be insured.
They also incorporate sophisticated measures that help to prevent mental issues from developing during such long-term underground stays, where morale can be critically affected leading to serious social and security problems. As just one simple example; most people don’t realize that a family of four people will produce anywhere from 5-7 gallons of water from respiration and perspiration into their environment every 24 hours.
I am sorry to break the news to these people but, OPSEC in this and many other matters has been dead for a long time. The Bunkhouse is their smallest shelter and can sleep 6, and has available toilet facilities. It is a snap-together solution that requires no tools to erect, and can be assembled by two people in 30 minutes. When it comes to easy, inexpensive solutions for emergency housing, this makes a lot of sense!
Discovery Communications brought out quite a few of its networks and shows, including Pit Bulls & Parolees, The Whale, Naked and Afraid and Gunslingers. I was not aware of the show until now, but have added it to my schedule for the Fall (it returns for its sixth season on Saturday, September 27th at 10pm).
The movie originally premiered in the UK in December of last year and is finally making its way to the US this Fall. And here is a fun fact for you: The book the movie is based on, In The Heart of the Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick, is in fact the inspiration for Moby Dick.
The interesting thing about the series is that as a docudrama series it mixes interviews with dramatic reenactment.
Such pre-made bunkers may cost in excess of $50,000.00 plus the costs to transport and bury the bunker in the desired location, with a total cost under $100K. This moisture will condense on the walls and ceiling of any underground structure and will over time collect on the floor (lowest point in the bunker) of the bunker.
In regard to bunkers; there are hundreds of advanced satellites that are orbiting the earth which are looking-down all the time.
Using simple store-bought infrared vision devices aggressors can locate; any infrared surveillance that might be used by the bunker to detect approaching people, the heat signature of a bunker including its air intakes and exhausts, as well as entries and exits.


The series follows Tia Torres and her pit bull rescue center (the largest one in the US), Villalobos Rescue Center, as she rescues pit bull and gives a second chance to parolees she employs to help her run the center. From the trailer shown, those dramatic reenactment feel like a regular scripted series you’d expect to see on TV and not the low quality reenactment we sometimes get for real life stories.
In reality, there are few applications where the owners of such a bunker might receive a reasonable return on the investments made into such an underground bunker. After a week or so, the water that has condensed becomes foul with fungus, bacteria and viruses and the smell of this toxic liquid will permeate the environment. For the past 20 years, some of these satellites have been scanning the ground looking for resources such as oil, water and mineral deposits, and in that mission, they collect and store mountains of data related to the properties of the ground below. Once these items are noted, the bunker can be approached and overtaken using various methods; simply blocking the air vents will force the occupants to come out after a time.
The most logical utilization of such a bunker based upon statistical occurrence of natural disasters would be to escape tornadoes, which are of course short-term events.
The equipment required to prevent this (just one of many problems) from happening is not only expensive, but requires a lot of energy to operate, continuously. This complex data can and is being re-accessed using re-tooled search algorithms that can be designed to find and catalog any underground facilities, even as small as a car buried underground. Of course there is also the very real risk that debris could cover and permanently block the entry and exit to a bunker, thereby trapping the people inside, at which point a bunker becomes a tomb. There are potentially a few other scenarios where a bunker might serve a statistically logical purpose, however the odds of such events are remote. And now with the advent of the newest super-computers, conducting a search of the archived date and cataloging (with Latitude & Longitude data) these search results are very simple and easy for any government organization. And in any case, there are multiple reasons why the occupants of such bunkers will in most cases be unable to stay underground long-term for more than a couple weeks. In fact, much of the satellite data can be purchased by private parties as well as foreign entities and the same searches can be undertaken. This magnificent Ranch Style home was built with privacy in mind, as there are 2 studio’s plus a Master suite. Just one aspect of this data (and new data being collected now) is being used to locate small underground tunnels at the U.S. There is a building on the premises that was once used as a winery and could be used for this again.
Off the basement is a bomb shelter built in the 50’s; it has beds and could be used as anything.
