MOUNTAIN GAY, Miss. (KTVI) – A man from Missouri sells his concrete survival bunker in a remote location in the Ozarks.
According to the list, the closed property is equipped with surveillance, security, ventilation / circulation system, central heating and cooling, private well and septic tank.
The owner told KTVI that he built it himself almost ten years ago. He did not want his name to be used in the article, but described everything that went into building the bunker.
“It’s a complex structure, and I did most of the work myself to keep people out,” the former contractor said.
The bunker has a full kitchen, two full baths, closets and a 9 by 5 foot pantry. The surrounding area has fruit trees, a garden and water. The owner said he was selling because, as a lonely man, he didn’t need this big bunker. He plans to build a smaller one for living.
“I built it to attract as many people as possible when something happens, but for me it’s too much to support,” he explained.
So what made him build this bunker in the first place?
“I noticed, probably 35 years ago, that we are losing our freedom very quickly,” he said. “They took away huge chunks of our freedom, and I saw it go downhill and no one resisted.”
The owner argued that the bunker offers other security benefits.
“A tornado can’t damage my house. It cannot burn because it is concrete, ”he said.
According to him, the price of 314,900 dollars is very fair for this type of bunker.
“It’s an underground bunker. If you look at the market of bunkers, it is twice cheaper than these bunkers with steel canisters. He continued, “It’s concrete and made to order. It’s not like living in a submarine. It’s very comfortable and has full-size ceilings and stuff. “
“People at the highest level,” he added. “This area is really one of the best for such places. I researched all the little things that could happen if everything went away and the Ozarks are the best, because there is no nuclear power plant and no ocean. It is more or less protected. “
The hotel also has fresh air, although it is completely underground, he said.
“I have a fresh air intake that completely filters the air. This is a completely enclosed house. It is a special unit that heats the air … enters the house and draws out the stale air, ”he explained.
Mobile service is also not an issue, he argued.
“There is an antenna base that connects to a device in the house and brings a signal inside the house.”
The owner believes that more and more people are interested in bunkers, as many of them come already prefabricated.
“Those who want to get into the bunker have a lot of preparatory work,” he said. “And it’s already done.”
