    My basement is an almost full basement. Except the part that goes under the TV room. Thats a crawl space.
    The only window in there is a brick glass one, noone will bust through that
    all walls are made of brick and or concrete
    Only problem is that I dont think the foundation goes very deep.

    I found a site that says it wil cost about 3500 to turn into a room. If I had that Id start right away.
    I want:
    a steel door with a heavy duty deadbolt lock
    Steel bars in front of the window
    Drain in middle of room
    flourescent lighting
    Craftsman work bench
    gun racks that I make myself
    shelving
    peg board

    And I want to find a huge sheet metal storage cabinet, and cut the back out and mount it in front of the door, that way noone notices I put in a gun room. :cool:

    Only way someone could get into it is if they sawed through the tv room floor

    Now all I have to do is get an extra $4000 or more somehow :hs:
    I wish I had enough money to do all the things I get ideas about

    Has anyone done similar to their house?

    I'd love to build a gun room, but I don't have a basement. :(

    I have all the best/insane ideas ever that I would love to do to a house someday. For instance, have a sub basement and maybe store guns there. Or just have a basement, and then have a large sliding blast proof door like in the movie saw and have that lead into the room.

    I was also designing how to redo my attic into a bedroom, but I never got hired earlier in the summer enough to save up

    Yeah, but blast proof doors are defiantely :cool:

    Definately would be cool to take the entire basement and make a couple rooms. One to store guns and ammo, and the other as a range. Also have to get the targets on an electric motor pulley system

    I want a house kind of like the one in the movie Hostage. Camera's all over the place, a huge metal gate out front to secure the compound, steel shutters that come down over the doors/windows, and a safe/panic room.

    Who the hells house is that?! They couldnt possibly be doing it illegally. It has to be some sort of testing or something. Youd have to be stupid to put that on the internet. I could go without the weed tunnel. It would be nice to turn into a range though

    Do you know if they are going to sell/ auction off that house? :naughty:

    The only flaw in a basement gun room is having to make it downstairs if you need another gun or more ammo in case of a burglary
    That reminds me, are you the one that killed a burglar in their house?

    I realy like the idea of the "fake"doorway into the room.
    My old place had almost something like it.It was a door that matched the interior design of the room.If you didn`t look carefully,you wouldnt have found it.It lead down to my basement

    Theres always the cheap, unsuspecting :rolleyes: way to hide a door. By putting a flag over it

    I figure if you have something worth shpwing off, its also worth hiding up too. Ive tried to figure out ways of hiding a door, but the only way I can think is to take a large steel cabinet and cover the door, or if i were to keep the crawlspace door the same size, to put the door on the other side of the door frame, and then hinge a large framed poster.

    I stayed at a B&B in Sedalia, Mo, that had some of the most kick ass hidden stuff. Hidden safes behind paintings, a library with a shelf that opened up when you pull on a book, with a spiral stairway that led to the master bedroom's fireplace, a pool cue rack that when you pull on a certain cue, it opens into a hidden bathroom, etc. All of it was extremely well hidden, would never have known it existed if they hadn't shown me. :bowdown:

    I wouldn't mind having this on the top. [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG]

    Then something in lines of a workshop/ storage place for the evil black weapons under that. Like the one that Clusive posted. (with an American flag of course)

    I've thought about doing something like that in my basement. It would actually be pretty easy to pull off the way that it's all set up. I think I'm going to hold off till I get a place in the country, though :hs:
