The master bedroom closet is a concrete block and steel reinforced storm shelter engineered to withstand 250 mph winds and 100 mph missile impacts. The armored steel door swings in so they can get out in case debris blocks the door way.

The storm shelter footings are extra wide and have more steel to anchor the room so the house can fall on top of it and it will not move.

This is a variation of the Fishman plan with storm-tuff features. See the pictures of the built-in storm shelter which is contained within the master bedroom closet.

"All the subs told me Les was anal, tough, but fair. That's the kind of builder I wanted on my job. I stopped by the job site every day on my way home from work. Les always seemed to be there checking on things. He kept a clean job site and ran a tight ship. He built our home in 5 months!"
