When it comes to disaster prepping …

… you’ve taken care of NEARLY everything.

Everything except for your bunker.

If you’re like most advanced preppers, there are only three things keeping your from building your bunker:

Price, time, and your wife.

Now, you don’t have to spend tens of thousands of dollars and lose months of time. In this book you’ll learn the step by step process I used to build a 16-foot diameter geodesic dome “bunker.” I’ll show you everything you need to finish your bunker, from EMT conduit and ferrocement to latex cement coverings.

The dome in this book was built in 3 days, by 3 people, for less than $2,000.

With this book, your wife will have to say yes, and she’ll be more than happy to have you doing another one of your “projects” outside the house.

Too bad for her it’ll only take a few days.

You’ll love this book because it will take your prepping to a completely new level.

Author Note:

I really enjoyed making this dome, I have experimented with many more domes and ways to cover them.  Because of the use on the show Doomsday Preppers, it was supposed to be lumpy and irregular. Even though the base geodesic dome was smooth and round.

I added a lot of hard won information to this work that would have made this bunker much easier to build (and probably cheaper.)

This dome was built by three people in 3 days. It cost less than $2,000 to build.  It could have been sub $1000 if it weren’t for the “cosmetic” extra’s added to make the film crew happy.

The EMT conduit frame cost approximately $175 dollars.  It was the longest and most tedious part of the build.  It is possible to coat it in such a way that the frame can be removed after and used again.

You can get more information on the geodesic dome build on my other site Tennessee Gun where I have a large article describing the process.  It is very similar to the book, but the book requires no electricity to read.
