A fallout shelter is an enclosed space specially designed to protect occupants from radioactive debris or fallout resulting from a nuclear explosion. The good thing about fallout shelters is they can be used to bug in and if constructed right protect you for months if not years.
To buy one ready made and to have it installed would set you back about 20 – 60,000 dollars, if not more. If you have time on your hands and you are looking for a great project, build one your self.
The good thing about building one is that you can keep it on the quiet and no one will know what you are doing, if they ask you could always say you are building a septic tank or a swimming pool. Or something along those lines.
In the link below you will find 6 free fallout shelter plans to download and print off or if you have some spare cash there are 35 other plans available to buy from the website. I have not bought these plans but I am guessing if it’s costing you some money then they are worth it.
