If you are not interested in an underground concrete bomb shelter maybe a safe room is what you are looking for. Have you found that security from a home invasion is your biggest fear? Then you may wish to build a safe room. The great thing about safe rooms is that they can be built above or below ground. Safe rooms can be built and used for many reasons, a secure room for your guns, a hidden office, a place to store valuables and collections, even a man cave, but the most common reason is a place to hide from danger like an intruder or an abusive spouse. How about your children? Are they home alone? Are they safe? Children can learn from a very young age about safety. A safe room could be very advantageous to their safety in the event an intruder comes calling when they are home alone. Somewhere you and or your children can safely lock yourself in and call the police for help.
