What did you do for a ceiling and how do you control the humidity?

Think the landload would mind me adding one to the apartment? When are you coming over to build mine?

Also, what were the dimensions inside when you were done? Did you mix your own concrete or have it brought in? If you had it brought it what did it cost?

thank you, good to be here, cool site, no doubt the ceiling is pliwood layed down over the opening. then I pour concreat over the pli inside a 2x6 frame I got both a dehidifier and a heater which works good in the winter hotter than hell in the summer tho gotta talk to somebody about that

I'm guessing probably Mississippi, Louisiana or Florida, with the heat and humidity and all...then again, it could be Maine for all I know.

Ok, I'm a dumbass, but what's with that little door that looks like its heading into the garage? FOTBR btw, welcome to the board

Reminds me of the rooftop bunker from the movie Commando with Ah-nuld. [:D]

OK as an AC/Refrigeration guy I can make a suggestion for "cool"?? You cant put in a window type unit. You will create a "Weak spot" for a B&E. Find someone "TRUSTWORTHY" that can install a "Split system" whereas the only hole in the wall that you will need is 2" in diameter. Fine looking job!!!

Did you have to swear the concrete truck driver to secrecy, or did you bury him out behind the shed? You can't be too careful with those secret bunkers. That is awesome. To bad you couldnt go bigger. So you could but the ham radio, generator and all that inside.

very nice! the little entrance door appears to be wood. why did you waste all the money on concrete if you're just gonna put a wood door on it? what happens if you have a fire in the shop and your small hidden door lights up 2. maybe its painted steel but it sure looks like wood with 2 deadbolts or some kind of locks. other than that... looks cool as hell man! good job. edited to say... after i looked some more i see that you had what looks like a metal frame in there before you poured the concrete. i guess the door is probably metal as well. if so... my mistake!

Cooool, I want one.

How many yards of concrete did that take, and what type of foundation did you use? Looks like that may be what I do for the next shed. The wife has been on me about one, but I have been procrastinating.
Link Posted: 1/4/2003 7:05:33 AM EST
very cool
Link Posted: 1/4/2003 7:16:48 AM EST
Holy shit, I want one too! [beer] Great job.

Very red clay...hmmmmm. Georgia or Carolina? So, from the outside it looks like a tool shed but, from the inside a gun bunker. Very stealthy.
Link Posted: 1/4/2003 2:32:58 PM EST
its a metal door 3/16" plate on box channel frame 3 yards for the foundation which is a monolithic slab with rebar reinforce 12-14' thick at the perimeter 6"+ in the center 5 yards for the walls which are 8" thick rebar reinforced 2 yards (maybe 3) for the cap. dumb ass me ate 3 yards of 5,000 lb test almost 400 bucks shit sets up faster than a gun banner tellin lies venom my man - if the wife be ridin' ya bout doing it - DO IT!!!!

Possibly VA, but then there's the tall pines in the background...
