Underground Compound of 4 Fallout Shelters in Montana Awaits Buyer To Burrow In
When spectacular mountain views are available, nearby homes almost always feature an abundance of windows to soak in the vistas.
The quartet of below-ground homes sit beneath 10.6 acres in Paradise Valley near Emigrant, MT, just north of Yellowstone National Park.
The earth keeps the houses at a constant 50 to 55 degrees and to increase the temperature as needed, each home is equipped with its own HVAC and ventilation system.
“It never feels musty in there with the air circulation system. It always smells fresh,” Lunn says.
The agent says she doesn’t like to use the term "preppers," because of the negative connotations attached to the term. But she acknowledges that that is basically what people do when they store supplies in underground bunkers.
“If our great-grandparents didn’t prep, none of us would be here,” she says. “It’s just being prepared.”
As in the case of most fallout shelters, the entrance to each home is through a thick door. Upon entry, the hallway takes a turn at a right angle.
“Any bunker worth its salt has to have those 90-degree turns, because nuclear and chemical material can't go around [corners],” Lunn explains. “That's really one of those tips of the trade for guys that are building bunkers.”
