Default I'm putting my bunker up for sale

If you know anyone that's interested...

I've had it for over 10 years now but it's just too big for my personal needs.

It's in W. PA (Pittsburgh area) but here's the listing I put in Philadelphia Craigslist.

Very kewl. Does it cost much to run the power and heat to it year round? Have you ever had a big party there. What a unique place.

Since we're not there much, power is cheap. It's been running just under $70/month.

We don't heat it. It doesn't go above 70 in the summer and doesn't go below 38 in the winter.

Never had a big party (no more than 15 people) but it is an awesome place to hang out. My daughter actually learned to ride a bike in that big room. It was the middle of winter and she was ready to give it a go so she learned in that room.

It currently has basketball hoops, soccer goals, volleyball net... so it's a great place to have some fun. Thought about an indoor pistol range since you can do over 40 yards but didn't do it.

Since it never freezes, that's where I take my stuff that I don't want to freeze for the winter (pressure washers, paints/chemicals...) as well as stuff I don't need and want out of the way for the winter.

Very interesting place Zoomer. What is the design criteria of the external doors for keeping all the riff-raff out doing a SHTF event? Curious is all.

The blast doors are about the size of a regular man door of 36" wide by 80" high but are really thick steel. Each door weighs in at around 3000 pounds.

There's also security cameras monitoring the doors as well as remote control to open or lock them from underground.

That's a hard one to answer as it depends on usage. There's a multiplier here. The more you use during spike times, the higher your rate.

We don't use a lot (mainly the hoist and lights) and our bill is running about $70/month.

When we go full-out and fire up big motors, that can spike to $400.

Default Re: I'm putting my bunker up for sale

Having seen this in person earlier this year. I've gotta say, this place is unbelievable in person. It is weird to think of that time period (well hell, we may be back to that depending upon N. Korea) to go through the trouble and expense to build something like that. And what all they had to do manually or with switches because the computer controls weren't there to be able to do things like that. Like he said, the doors are big and heavy, but swing remarkably easy.

I would love to buy that place and put in a crypto-currency mining farm. Too bad it's so far away - the logistics aren't ideal for me.

The power rates aren't too bad: https://power2switch.com/PA/Pittsburgh/

I did not realize how close we were to your bunker on my trips to Iron Mountain near Slippery Rock. Good luck selling.
