Why I made this site

Earlier this year I set out to build a storm shelter for my family. I spent a lot of time googling and trying to find quality resources. Eventually, I made a plan and built a shelter. In the process I discovered that there's very little good information out on the internet when it comes to building a storm shelter from scratch. There's also a lot of non-viable ideas that get tossed out with confidence, like burying a CONEX shipping container.

What I'm going to do with this site is post some quality content that should make it easier for families to build their own shelter. If you stumble onto this site and this is all you see, well, this site is still a work in progress as of June 12, 2012. Check back in a month or so.
