It’s scary to imagine a disaster circumstance that would necessitate a survival shelter, but then again, it’s also not that difficult to hypothesize. And when or if disaster strikes, it’s somewhat comforting to know that you could have access to something like this: That is, if you have $60,000 and good planning skills.
For the price of a luxury car, the Atlas Survivor Shelters are supposed to offer protection from tornados, earthquakes, and other disastrous evens. They’re buried 20 feet underground, and they offer all the amenities from home. Check out the interior of these amazing shelters below.
The Atlas Survival Shelters are meant to be a safe refuge in times of trouble.
The shelters are 32-by-10 feet, and come with their own generator pod.
Here is a drawing of a colony of shelters, meant to be able to house an entire extended family. Each pod can accommodate three or four people.
Here’s what the shelters look like under construction: The entire residence is basically in a giant tube.
And of course, what would a disaster shelter be without a secret entrance into the ground?
The staircase is intentionally built at a 30 degree angle to deflect radiation.
Here’s how the shelter looks looking down from the outside.
And the inside is about as cozy as a regular home – just with less windows.
The master bedroom is spacious enough.
And there are several bunkbeds to house more residents.
The beds can be hidden into the wall for more space.
And there’s an emergency exit if the primary entrance is compromised.
The kitchen is fully appointed with plenty of storage.
And it has a cute little dining area as well.
The bathroom doubles as a laundry room, and gets water from a separate reservoir.
These shelters are impressive, and could even be used as a dwelling for hunters or other outdoorsy types. Naturally, using the shelters for that purpose would be preferable to a zombie attack.
