Basement Concrete Block Shelter Model

Of the four plans modeled there are really only two I would ever consider building. This is one of them. At least in this shelter you can stand up and move around somewhat. Of course you have to have a basement in which to build the thing though. Like the other models this one also has it's own boxed cover for it. An interesting note is that the Civil Defense film - SHELTER ON A QUIET STREET shows the construction of this type of shelter.
