The fully finished pics are bad ass but I think I could probably build one a lot cheaper.

I can build myself a damn nice house for that much.

I could probably do a bunker for 1/4 that doing all my own work.

I was thinking the same, and the mattress's look very uncomfortable.

Reminds me of that bunker scene in The Road.

I would go bat-shit crazy living in a bunker.

Seems awfully small to me.
And after being in it for a time, it would get smaller.

Seems a bit over priced too.

This. I wonder about more long term storage, i.e. food.

Where is the rat hole to get out when the main opening is compromised by debris or a waiting assailant?
It doesn't look like there is anyway to know what is out there when you pop the hatch. Once you do if there is someone there you are a heartbeat away from taking a shot to the head or an incendiary or explosive device down the hatch.
All the electrical devices and fancy woodwork looks nice but without power, air, water, sanitation, food and a means of communication you are just spam in a can awaiting your fate.

I think its safe to assume this is made to be a pretty storm shelter and not a fort to protect you from the end of the world.

I don't think I would care all that much about how comfortable the mattresses are if I was in a situation where i had to use the bunker..

Nevermind. Went to link. Made out of an oversized shipping container?? No Thanks. 35K?? Really no thanks. Head over to the survival forum to see what happens when you put put loads on the the sides and top of a shipping container.

Storm blows a tree down or a car on top of that hatch and its all the same.

Why just post pics of the bunker where it comes out of the earth in the OP?? (No knock on you OP) I went back and looked and then edited my OP. Try to keep up.

Isn't the 10ft pipe they are using about $100 a foot? So what about $5k worth of materials for a $40k shelter? Talk about mark up.

Change the entrance a bit and add bury it just outside your foundation to use as a safe room.

Make it accessible through a carefully entrance behind a bookcase. That'd be interesting.

I'm sure most could, but pretty nice for a package deal.

If you actually read the page linked - and not just look at the pictures - I believe they mention reinforcing the container.
