It's nearing the end of the day, and weathermen have been predicting severe storms that will be arriving sometime overnight. You need to get your kids tucked in for the night, but you know that everyone might need to jump up in a few hours and take cover. It's a scenario that many Safe Sheds storm shelter owners report facing on a regular basis.
In some areas of the country, tornadoes are such a common occurrence that our customers know they'll spend a lot of time in their shelters. So, they add personal touches to make their storm shelter comfortable and "homey". Chairs, twin beds, built in shelves and bunk beds, and camping cots are frequent additions. And some owners have insulated and paneled the inside of their storm shelters, added room air conditioners, and set their shelter up like an outdoor living room!
There are lots of different types of storm shelters on the market today...underground, in-garage, workbench sized... But a Safe Shed storm shelter is large enough to keep your family comfortable for several hours or, even, overnight. Imagine spending the night with three cats, two dogs, and four people in an underground storm shelter!
When the winds are blowing, hail is pounding, rain in thrashing, and tornadoes are a very real threat, everyone's adrenaline is pumping and the kids (and pets) are scared. You need a shelter that won't be too crowded with walls that are thick enough to help muffle the sounds of the storm.
If you'd like to speak with a Safe Shed owner who's personalized his unit, like those shown above, let us know...we'd be happy to put you in touch. The gentlemen who customized the shelter in the upper left corner even gave us a "products list" for all the items he used to insulate and panel his shelter, along with the techniques to get it done!

I'm looking for a storm shelter that is 4' x 8' that has a side entry maybe something like your 6'X6' only an entrance from the side. I need something I can place against my house with a inside entry.
Very good idea - can be used for many conditions.

Wish they'd be affordable for everyone, especially those in high risk weather conditions.
