On my dream list: Tornado Shelter

Have recently been watching old episodes of “The Twilight Zone” and have seen quite a few episodes dealing with tornado and/or bomb shelters and have been thinking that I should build one in the backyard. We do, incidentally, live in ‘tornado alley’.

But I cannot have a run-of-the-mill tornado shelter with the wooden door jutting up from the ground. I am going to start designing the whole process, but needed a place to post pictures, so what better place than my blog.

I want to hide the entrance with this little building:

The photo is literally a still from a movie, taken by pausing the movie and snapping a photo with my iPhone. I don’t want to put too much (just enough) effort into it, in case a tornado does come and destroys it, but it needs to look authentically old. I also need to do it as cheaply and as easily as possible.

Whaddya think? Stop back by for updates. I have some great ideas how to approach this project.
