    My friends and I often talk about buying one of those and turning it into one of the hatches from LOST.

    Damn, one of my dream homes is ACTUALLY an underground house! Wow. You have your own underground garage and can even convert the silo into a hanging hydroponics garden with enough fresh food to keep you going for awhile. But, those sites generally aren't handicapped accessible and that is a concern for my aging retired parents. Plus even after purchasing it takes alot of time and money to convert one into a truly habitable environment with the comforts of modern living.

    So, I'll just have to stick with plan B of a central geodesic dome with six spires (to rooms, etc) all with dirt built in around. Only 30% of the house would be visible.

    If this was in Montana, I'd say Zefram Cochrane would buy it and begin building his warp ship so he can retire to a pacific island with piles of cash and equally abundant amounts of naked women.

    This has got to be a gag. First off, it's too cheap. You don't want to know what one of those type of stuctures cost to build, believe me. Secondly, he can't provide any pics of the facility? Anyone trying to sell property would have craploads of pics to show possible buyers so as to sell it easier. C'mon, how many people would be dumb enought to spend that kind of cash sight unseen?

    Yeah it'd be nice if real. Hell think of all the fun you could have if you made it up like the interior of a space station or a D&D dungeon. If it were real.

    Actually it's one of the most expensive ones on the market (3rd most expensive that I've found). What you have to understand, these things have been gutted and left vacant for the better part of 40 years. Hell, there's one in Arkansas (I think) that needs a LOT of work for something in the $150K range. Most people that want these don't have the $$ to do anything with 'em. You'd need millions to make anything of it. If I won the lotto, though, it would so be on!

    Tony, I can add $150 and a medium fry from McDonalds to the fund...

    Are these listed on any real estate databases? Since I have infinite access to those lovely databases...

    I'd buy it and build a "Wayne" manor above it!
