    Looks perfect for the students to sit in their cell, strap on their Oculus, and live in the metaverse.

    I have so many times *almost* bought a decommissioned missile site to turn into the Blast From The Past palace, but even divorce has not got me to getting it done :-)

    DH’s cousin, Eric Breitenmoser in this article, owns a WWII bunker in Switzerland. It is huge, a huge cement bunker.

    My plan was much more modest. A series of cylinders buried in a hillside. No so much a prepper ark as a three-bedroom ranch with a really low profile and a decent wine cellar.

    Presumably itís designed like a high rise. Pressurized internal fire stairs and sprinklers throughout. At ten stories tall itís too tall for a ladder truck anyway. They only reach seven stories.

    It reminds me of the inner rooms without real windows on cruise ships.
