MOUNTAIN GROVE, Mo. – A Missouri man is selling his concrete survival bunker in a remote location of the Ozarks in southern Missouri. The controlled property comes “equipped with monitoring, security, ventilation/circulation, central heating and cooling, private well and septic,” according to the listing.
FOX 2 spoke to the home’s owner, who said he built it with his own hands nearly a decade ago. He didn’t want his name used in the article but told us about what all went into building the unique bunker.
“It was a complex construction and I did most of the work myself so I could keep people away from it,” said the former contractor.
The cellar has a full kitchen, two full bathrooms, a wardrobe and a pantry for ages 9X5. The property is surrounded by fruit trees, gardens and water. The owner said he was going to move out and build a smaller bunker to live in and said he doesn’t need a big one like this as a single man.
“I built this to engage as many people as possible in case something happens, but I have to maintain too much,” he explains.
So what motivated him to build this bunker in the first place?
“I realized maybe 35 years ago we lost our freedom very quickly,” he said. “They’re taking away a lot of our freedoms and I see it going downhill and no one opposes it.”
He said there are other safety perks that come with the house as well.
“A tornado can’t damage my house, it can’t burn down because it’s concrete.”
The owner said the list price of 314,900 USD is a very good deal for this type of pit.
“It’s an underground bunker, when you look at the bunker market, it’s half the price of those steel bunkers.” “It’s made of concrete and made to order, unlike living in a submarine, it’s very comfortable and has oversized ceilings and furnishings,” he continued.
The seller says another perk to the area is how secure it is.
“Everybody is a top person,” he said. “The area is truly one of the best for places like this. I researched all the little things that can happen if things go sideways and the Ozarks park is the best place because there’s no nuclear power plant or ocean, it’s more or less protected.”
The hotel has fresh air despite being completely underground.
“I have a fresh air intake that completely cleans the air. It was a completely enclosed house. It’s a special unit that warms the indoor air and sucks the stinky air out,” he explains.
What about cell phone service? The owner said that wasn’t the problem either.
“There’s an antenna base that connects to an indoor unit and carries the signal indoors.”
The owner said more people than you might realize were building bunkers and he pointed to a well known vendor, Atlas Survival Shelters.
“Anyone looking to get into a bunker, they have a lot of prep work,” he said. “And this was done.”
