The Missouri bunker house has everything you need to survive the apocalypse

MOUNTAIN GROVE, Mo. — A Missouri man is selling his concrete survival bunker in a remote location in the Ozarks in southern Missouri. The gated property is “equipped with surveillance, security, ventilation/circulation, central heating and air conditioning, private well and septic tank,” according to the listing.

FOX 2 spoke with the home’s owner who said he built it himself nearly a decade ago. He didn’t want his name used in the article, but told us everything that went into building this unique bunker.

“It’s a complicated build and I did most of the work myself so I could keep people out,” said the former contractor.

The bunker has a full kitchen, two full bathrooms, closets and a 9X5 pantry. The surrounding property has fruit trees, garden and water. The owner said he would move out and build a smaller bunker to live in and said he didn’t need one as big as a single man.

“I built this in order to bring in as many people as possible in case something happened, but it’s too much for me to maintain,” he explained.

So what prompted him to build this bunker in the first place?

“I noticed probably 35 years ago that we were losing our freedoms very quickly,” he said. “They were taking away huge chunks of our freedoms and I saw it was deteriorating and no one was against it.”

He added that the house also had other safety benefits.

“A tornado can’t hurt my house, it can’t burn down because it’s made of concrete.”

The owner said the listing price of $314,900 is very fair for this type of bunker.

“It’s an underground bunker, when you look at the bunker market, it’s half the price of those steel bunkers.” He continued, “It’s concrete and bespoke, it’s not like living in a submarine, it’s very comfortable and it has tall ceilings and all that.”

The seller said another advantage of the area is its security.

“People are on top,” he says. “This area is really one of the best for places like this. I researched all the little things that could happen if everything went wrong and the Ozarks are the best because there are no nuclear power plants or ocean, it’s more or less protected.

The property has fresh air despite being completely underground.

“I have a fresh air intake that completely filters the air. It’s a completely closed house. It’s a special unit that heats the air entering the house and extracts the stale air”, a- he explained.

What about mobile phone service? The owner said that was no problem either.

“There’s an antenna base that hooks up to a unit in the house and brings the signal inside the house.”

The owner says more people than you think are building bunkers and he points to a popular supplier, Atlas Survival Shelters.

“Anyone considering going into a bunker has a lot of prep work,” he said. “And it’s already done.”

The property is listed by Stacy Matherly with Keller Williams Southern Missouri Realty.
