No- you have not- and he was not kidding.

For those that have never experimented with hallucinogens, this is what the Macy's Christmas Parade would look like on acid-

Default Heres mine

I lived in a double wide for years and always wondered what I would do if a tornado was in the area. Stick my head between my legs and kiss my ass good bye? So when I decided to build a real house I wanted a vault/safe room so I had them pour one 10' x 10' in the end of the basement under ground. I found someone in the area that made safe rooms and doors. The gray heavy duty cabinet in the pic used to be my gun safe. Now its my ammo locker. The dehumidifer keeps the humidity at around 20% and the heater keeps the temp around 75 degrees. Some where around $4500 total invested. Well worth it for the piece of mind. If I need to use it as a safe room I can lock the door from the inside and then all I have to do is open a hatch and pull a pin to pull the bolts back to get out. Also the door opens to the inside so if theres a tornado, rubble can't keep me from opening the door. That may have been more information than anyone wanted.

String very nice and that is what I want to do when we get moved to the country. My only concern would be water in the basement with your door sitting that close to the floor . I know in GA you guys dont get mass flooding etc but here in IL it does happen from time to time . Im thinking maybe a small 2 block high wall with my door sitting on top of that to help keep the safe room from flooding in ? Also what did your door cost you ? The house we are looking at is only about 17 yrs old and has never had water inthe basement as it sits up pretty high anyway , just thinking incase there is ever a busted water pipe or something of that nature but I want to do a 10X16 in a house thats already built which creates a bit of a problem so I may have to go block walls ?

Without going digging around for the records I'm pretty sure the door was about $1800. I'm not too much worried about the basement getting flooded. Like I said the front of basement is under ground but the yard slopes so the back of the basement is ground level. I walk out the back basement door onto a patio under the back porch. I didn't mention that the walls are 8" reinforced concrete and the ceiling is 6" poured on corrugated steel. The dehumidifer drains into a sump pump that pumps it outside.

Browning makes some safe doors. They have one I have bin looking into. It looks like a regular door. Has a wireless pad that can be hidden up to 7 feet away.
