Former Missile Silo in Kansas Turned Into a Survival Condo

In the US state of Kansas, an old missile silo has been converted into a survival condominium. The building was designed underground by engineer and software developer Larry Hall. The house is intended for wealthy educated people who need a place to live in the event of a natural or man-made disaster.

According to the creator, the condominium is the most elaborate structure ever built. The front door is made of armored steel filled with concrete and weighs 8 tons. The walls of the bunker are made of epoxy concrete, have a thickness of about 3 m, therefore they are able to protect against a nuclear strike. The bunker was built in 1960 to store nuclear missiles.
