Armageddon; the one event many people hope to never witness. Picture TEOTWAWKI- mass panic, possible warfare, and danger looming around every corner. People starving and scavenging and scraping out ways to survive.
We can prep for doomsday with supplies upon supplies. Prepping can be quite expensive. However, making a bunker to ensure safety can be even more valuable and more costly. Although, many doomsday preppers aren't too concerned with cost. Safety and security takes what it takes. In fact, a portion of the 1% richest of the world are building bunkers that many would say are fancier than their current homes.
The following article shows us just how one man belonging to the 1% made a luxury bunker that is Armageddon ready:
In 2008, Larry Hall purchased a retired missile silo (a vertical, underground structure made for the storage and launch of nuclear weapon-carrying missiles) for $300,000 and converted it into luxury apartments for people who worry about the end of the world and have cash to burn.
Someday, the 1% may live out Armageddon in style at Hall's Survival Condo Project, which cost $20 million to build and accommodates about a dozen families. Complete with food stores, fisheries, gardens, and a pool, it could pass as a setting in the game “Fallout Shelter,” wherein players oversee a community of post-apocalyptic residents in an underground vault.
“I was aware of the availability [of the site] from working on government contracts,” Hall tells Business Insider. He purchased the silo for $300,000 in 2008.
Though the exact location is top-secret, Halls says it's north of Wichita, Kansas, surrounded by rolling hills and farmland.
The construction costs were nearly $20 million. The once-vacant chamber now has 15 floors divided into 12 single-family homes, as well as common areas and space for operations.
The typical full-floor apartment includes three bedrooms, two baths, a kitchen, a dining room, and a great room. Bunk beds are a necessity for fitting in the whole family.
A full-floor unit is advertised for $3 million, and a half-floor unit goes for half the price. But good luck getting in. The units sold out before construction ended in 2012.
The swimming pool stretches 75 feet and includes a water slide.
The bunker plans to feed homeowners for years to come. It raises tilapia in fish tanks and vegetables under grow lamps. A miniature grocery store is also in the works.
There's an armory equipped with guns and ammo, so homeowners can defend themselves against intruders. They can practice their skills at the indoor shooting range.
In the event of a crisis, Halls told The New Yorker that adults are prohibited from leaving the property without permission from the Survival Condo Project's board of directors.
If Armageddon, nuclear warfare, or a viral epidemic ever comes, SWAT team-style trucks are ready to pick up homeowners within a four-hundred-mile radius of the bunker.

Spending your days in a 15-story luxury bunker during Armageddon? I can't imagine a person not up for that. I might just have to start breaking old piggy banks and saving as much as I can to get a spot in this lap of luxury.
Until next time…
Take care and God bless
