Forget leaving Illinois for the coast. Be ready for the end of the world with the ultimate in personal safety, a 10,000-square-foot modernized underground bunker.

Panic Rooms

The ultimate in personal safety, for quite a while, was to build yourself a panic room.

Panic rooms gained popularity in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. The concept of a panic room, also known as a safe room, became more widely known through movies and media during the 1990s.

These secure spaces are typically designed to provide a safe retreat in case of a home invasion, burglary, or other emergencies. The popularity of panic rooms increased as a response to concerns about personal safety and security.

The Ultimate in Personal Safety for Your Entire Family

With a unique piece of real estate like this, you'll get:

Protection from Natural Disasters

Underground bunkers can provide shelter from natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, or floods. Being underground offers a layer of protection from the destructive forces of these events.

Nuclear Fallout Shelter

In the context of nuclear threats, an underground bunker can serve as a fallout shelter. The structure can protect occupants from radiation exposure in the aftermath of a nuclear explosion.

Preparedness for Civil Unrest

Individuals or groups concerned about civil unrest, social instability, or political turmoil may build bunkers as a precautionary measure to have a secure and hidden location.

Pandemic Preparedness

Recent global events, such as pandemics, might motivate some to build bunkers as a means of isolating themselves from potential health risks and ensuring access to essential supplies.

Personal Security

High-profile individuals, such as celebrities or public figures, may build bunkers for personal security and protection against potential threats or attacks.

Survivalist Mentality

Some people with a survivalist mindset or a belief in the need for self-sufficiency may construct bunkers as part of a broader preparedness strategy for various scenarios.

Privacy Concerns

Those seeking enhanced privacy or a retreat from the public eye might build underground bunkers to maintain a secluded lifestyle.

Leave The World Behind

If you have a difficult time understanding why having something like this bunker wouldn't be a terrible idea, you should watch the Netflix film, Leave The World Behind.

Two hours and five minutes into the film, there is a poignant scene where "G.H." (played by Mahershala Ali) explains a "simple three-stage maneuver that could topple a country's government from within."

Among the thoughts you'll have after watching that film, will be whether or not you should start digging a hole for that bunker now.
