In the backyard of his remote Southern California home, Bernie Jones is etching an unconventional blueprint: a construction plan to build his underground survival shelter. It won't be the typical, cramped Cold War-era bunker. It will hold 20 people.

Part of a small but vocal group of survivalists in Menifee, some 80 miles east of Los Angeles, Jones, 46, has pushed for the right to build a bunker on his 1-acre property for nearly a year. He wants to be ready for anything, be it natural disaster or a nuclear attack.

'The world is taking a change,' he says. 'I want to be prepared. I want my family to survive.'

Heck yeah, it's would be OK with me.  I'd also tell them to save a little space in the corner.   :laugh:

Increase the square footage of the home thus increasing the value (if it is done to code of course) which will bring up the value of the neighbor's homes. Win win.

Not necessarily...as the increase is below grade.   WAY below grade.

It would be an asset for a like-minded buyer...as would an in-ground pool.  A target audience for sure.

Homeland Security of course would know immediately, exactly who has 'improved' his home thus.   :laugh:   And remember, they don't even want you to store too much water and food-stocks.  They'll come and take it.   For when TSHF perhaps.

The only way to accomplish anonymity would be to be like prisoners who dug tunnels in the middle of the night.  Fill the trunk with dirt and take it with you.    :laugh:
