I don't see it being THAT expensive, especially if you do the work yourself. The book cases are a little too fancy for my tastes, so they could be simplified. The room itself is just a room. If you want it reinforced, concrete is always an option. I'm not sure about fireproofing, but there's probably a way to do that as well.
The vault door while pricy, is still not prohibitively expensive for someone who is willing to save up for something like this. A quick google search found one for $1800. With more time, you could probably find a good quality door for less.
Then again, we're also talking storing a lot of guns. This would not be that great for someone with only a few guns. If you have quite a collection on the other hand, it would be great. It just depends on what you want.
Some people may be happy with 3 or 4 large gun safes. Personally, if I ever get THAT many guns, I would rather have a single gun room.
