Increasingly many people are resorting to the arguably extreme methods of building their own fortified home bunker for the purpose of surviving any number of disasters and post apocalyptic scenarios.  If you have resigned yourself to the idea that the end may indeed be upon and have decided to take cover when it comes, then this little guide will help you on your way to having a bunker that will make you the envy of your neighborhood:

1. For the Love of God, hire a professional

It is of the utmost importance that if you are going to build a bunker, get a professional to do it, or at the very least to assist you in your quest for post apocalyptical survival.  There are certain legalities and regulations that need to followed; for instance, shelters in the US need to have a protection factor of 40. Other factors such as ventilation and leakage will need to be taken into consideration, so an experienced hand is strongly advised.  If armageddon is poised to rear its ugly head, then you'll want to be secure in your new surrounds which will no doubt be your home for a very long time.

2. Require the Appropriate Planning Permission

You may find that the area or City you live in has strict guidelines that you will need to adhere to and follow.  You may find that your plans will need to be closely assessed and approved by your local authority.  Not following this might result in a rather large fine, so following the planning regulations is prudent.  You might find yourself thinking, "Well armageddon is soon upon us, I won't have to pay the fine anyway".  If you are susceptible to this line of thought just remember, it is through your cautiousness that you are building the bunker, so err on the side of caution and go through the proper channels.

3.Design the Bunker to suit your need

This is the last point I am going to touch on but it is by no means the least important.  If you are building a bunker to equip for one person then it should be designed for that in mind, maybe allowing for a little bit of leeway in case any stragglers come to you for refuge.  If however you are wanting to build a safety bunker for you and your family, then make sure the structure will be able to accommodate for the numbers.  You want to make sure that the structure is fairly comfortable and able to provide both comfort and security for you and your family for an indefinite amount of time.

These points are by no means exhaustive but get the fundamentals right and you'll be having a ball in your new post apocalyptic pad.
