I also remember someone who was constructing a new house building one in. Anyone got a link to that thread?

I highly recommend you build it BEFORE the house.

I can't remember who it was but they had some GREAT pics of it being built. I was going to try and incorporate some of those ideas when we build our new place.

You know with a little luck I'll be breaking ground for the new house in Pa. by this summer.
I am definitely going to pour the walls and the ceiling of the walk in gun safe before I set the first level floor joists.

If you do it this way you can pour a reinforced concrete ceiling/lid with little trouble.

I built one a few years ago. We put it under the front porch with eight inches of concrete on all six sides.
