    Zombie-proof fortress FTW.

    Though 1.5 mil to buy and a couple mil more to renovate . . .

    In. I've often said if I won the lottery, I'd purchase one of these in a heartbeat, renovate it to my standards, and then probably put in a decent-sized runway or make sure I had enough level ground to put a bush plane on, and call it my "getaway."

    I think this pops up once every year or so on OT. I'd be more interested if it was in Texas......though I still wouldn't have the monies:o

    I believe that there was an Atlas missile silo for sale in Texas some years ago for significantly less than they're asking for this location. Nowhere near as involved as the Titan complex...

    I'd love to have the one in Denver..but I'm pretty sure they still use that one... Looking at the plans for this one makes me think of Bill Gates underground parking lot at his house they had on TV

    Yeah, this would be the "if I won the lottery". Refinish the inside, probably have a shooting range indoors, big shop, etc. Turn the missile tubes into levels with guest bedrooms, landing strip. Call it home.

    Oh, and I would rig up the launch doors to open again, randomly open them and launch model rockets. Hopefully I would have panicky neighbors.

    Yeah I've seen pics of that atlas one before, the Titan one is more then twice the square footage of that one, could set up all sorts of shit down there, house, range, etc.

    Honestly, you'd probably be better off building something like that from scratch tailored to your needs, rather than trying to retrofit and restore something like that.

    Remote land is cheap, and everything is stripped out, so you'd still have to dump a shit load of money into adding electrical and sewer/water works back, which would be harder now that it's ripped out and already buried.

    Might as well start from scratch IMHO

    The only thing is putting something that large underground is going to cost a pretty penny to start from scratch.

    Even if it cost two million to put it in from scratch, you're going to be better off than paying to remodel that one that already costs 1.5 mil

    I would make one silo into a rock gym, one into a skydiving wind tunnel, and one into a scuba tank. :big grin:

    Yeah I've seen some pretty cheap but gotta figure out how much clean up is going to cost alot of the cheap ones have been heavily vandalized and flooded.

    For a smaller facility you might be right about it being easier to start from scratch but I believe that TITAN site is 46k sq ft consisting of several underground buildings, not counting the tunnel space. I bet it would cost several million to build something like from scratch.
