Shelter homes which blend into the surroundings
« on: February 09, 2013, 05:55:49 AM »
Posting here a few ideas and images for shelter homes which blend into the surroundings.
I realize there is a bit of an overlap - some shelter ideas will already be posted in other Shelter Topics.

Here's a image I grabbed off the net. Originally someone called it a "Redneck tornado shelter."
I say it might work pretty good as long as it is not right next to a lake or river or in a flood area. As long as it is secured better so no winds can get in and rip doors off etc. Would have to secure the outside door to the underground and put some chamo over it rocks and etc. and then enter it from inside the house. In case high winds tear the house clear up off the foundations there would have to be some kind of seal so people could go in the bus and not have that entry door to the bus torn off. Maybe some reinforced door fastened securely inside bus...
Notice how the house has a basement and someone has build a concrete thing out connecting to the side of the bus. Looks like they have use of the whole basement and the bus too. More could be done to make it secure and virtually invisible. I would dig down and have food stores buried near the bus with access from inside the bus...

I like these ideas where they are set into the ground.

Yeah, me too.
This lady has some ideas. I just found this... I think I had previously grabbed some images from there but hadn't read it. All I would emphasize is really good reinforcing... :)
