Some homes are purpose built to survive the very worst. In some areas, including a storm shelter or safe room into home construction is a common practice, in order to protect the residents against tornados or earthquakes. For more extreme disasters, there are more in-depth preparations and defenses.
You will even find former missile silos, built during the height of the Cold War. These have security and blast resistant construction that can withstand any attack. In some cases they have been sold to the public, and converted into private homes or commercial spaces, offering the opportunity to live or work in a truly secure location.
Many custom homes are designed with forethought for hidden safe rooms or vaults. If a home is built from scratch, it’s easy to include these special features. In these homes, the garage, basement, or shed may hide a whole underground living space, ready to provide safety for the occupants, with a separate air and water supply, and sometime even a secret escape tunnel.
Whether you are looking for a home with just a hidden vault to protect valuables, or a hidden apartment to protect your entire family, you may find in it our listings.
