            Place where you leave your muddy/dirty outdoor stuff when you enter a house. Common in the country.

            Seven foot diameter sounds like a lot but it's not quite as high as a standard doorway. Kind of cramped, really, especially when a flat floor is added.


            We have any problems out here, we're heading for one of the old mines - they go two - three hundred feet below ground, not just twenty.

            Of course, the real problem isn't surviving the event - it's surviving the aftermath when you eventually have to come out.

              What's the zoning requirements? Also does it have to be no closer than 2' from the property line?

              Might make a nice storm shelter as well.

              Wouldn't it be easier to make them out of concrete pipe instead of corruggated steel?

                That would vary with the local AHJ (authority having jurisdiction) on zoning and building code.

                But, it would weight considerably more, be far harder to keep dry (concrete tends to "weep" moisture), and be more difficult to connect interior items to.
                The other advantage is that you can buy the pipe ready made in various lengths. Large concrete pipe like that is expensive to make and expensive to ship. Rolling a steel sheet into a cylinder is cheap, quick, and easy to do.

                  Assuming this is designed for when the "big one" hits us and all established systems fail, where is the water for the washing machine comming from?

                            Impossible? No. Pricey, yes.

                            Oxygen free steel alloys generally won't rust. There are also stainless steels that won't. You'll pay through the nose for them though...

                              irrelevant for two reasons:

                              (1) You tell me...my crystal ball is broken.

                              (2) If it doesn't happen right away, every year that goes by increases the natural corrosion of metal in the ground.

                              Besides, as I previously posted above, we have access to old mine shafts sunk into solid rock, with a ready supply of ground water in place. I'm not locking myself inside of a sewer pipe so some knothead can get rich off it.
