They ship these sheds all over the USA, from southern Ilinois.

Good people to deal with.

One of these was the only thing standing when Joplin ,Mo was hit.

They are amazingly strong.

I sure could use one of those at the new property I just acquired......................no where to run, no where to hide...........................yet. As far as tornado's, I looked up the history, and there's only been two within 7 miles, in a hundred years, but you nevvvvvvvvvvvvvvvver know.:p

I did my homework, I did the research.
I have an underground bunker ( ok for safety, but cant store anything),
I have friends that have the poly underground shelters, $6000+ inst.and all the sweaty walls you want.
Guess what, underground = wet, humid, sweating walls.

This is the only above grond shelter I trust my life to.

Mine was $ 4785 +delivery @$2.00/mile.
They just increased their prices to $5250 +delivery.

I might be selling a few guns ,;)....to help offset the cost.

Anybody got anyy exprience with Peltier Dehumidifiers..
I pobably will soon.:)
