How to live like a boss:

I have somewhat of an obsession with loft and bunker living.  I’d fix mine up way more than the ones in the video, but they’re still cool.  That hippy guy was starting to piss me off by the end of the video.

For 2 million dollars a floor for that one place though I’d probably opt for a top floor penthouse style place rather than below ground.  The fact that your ventilation has to come from above ground and exhaust pushed out above ground always kind of worries me… it seems possible for someone to easily smoke/chem you out.  Am I right?  Maybe there is some sort of protection against that?

20th Century Castles is the place that is selling these.  They have a seriously outdated website with a real lack of pictures, but I’m still hooked.

I laughed when I saw you had to order the “video tours” on VHS or DVD.  Ahaha what is this 1992?  Also, having google ads on a company website?  That’s tacky as hell.  Do they really need that extra 23 cents in revenue every month? I guess the answer to that is “maybe” because it doesn’t seem like these things sell that quick.

Make sure to check out the awesome article on the topic from the makers of the video over at TheVerge.

Anyone know someone that lives in one of these?  Got an obsession of your own with underground fortresses?
