I gotta get the driveway off the other side of the cul-de-sac anyways.

Honestly, I am stuck between a show-and-tell on this site and a hard no on info.

Loose lips and all.

Leave location details out of anything you'd like to share.

This thread flies by so quickly it's not likely to be seen by any but the dedicated C&B'er.   Chuckle

You'll be doin' sumpin' the rest of us only dream about ~ we'll all cheer ya' on and who knows?  Ya' might even get a tip or two!  Wink



Understood.

I welcome tips as this is my first 'dig'.
Looking at 'storm-shelter' layouts by the pros, they enter IN the bathroom, then common room then bed space....

.. here is a 100k re-enforced 'container' bunker. (40k just to install)





It's just steel!


There is this option as well...

...if you have a few 100k to spare.

Ya, good ole concrete construction seems to be the way.



Tips and ideas and questions welcome!

I've had my eye on this system for awhile now. I don't know what the load rating is for potentially burying, but it wouldn't take much to do a reinforcing layer once the structure is up to act as a form.

Meh. No one was wearing them when I went to the chemist this arvo.  Chuckle  

Wooki has not had his walk for three days [raining] but he's rather chill. [He's asleep at my feet] Though I did walk him outside for 20 minutes to let him sniff and mark. 
Hope it dries enough between showers tomorrow to take him for a run. 

Had two black cockatoos in my white cedar tree today, sharpening their beaks by ripping branches to shreds. 
They're really noisy. 
Beautiful birds. 

Black cockatoos aren't as common as galahs and white cockatoos around here. 
For some reason kookaburras don't frequent my area though they're frequently heard in the mountains ten miles west of me.  1dunno1  

It's nearly the bewitching hour. 

Night all.  Drinks


Glad Wooki got a chance to check his pee mail.  Wink

Aren't the galah birds the ones Wooki puts a hurtin' on?   1dunno1
Good morning patriots  Drinks 

Galahs? No. The only parrot like bird he's caught was a Rainbow Lorikeet [they're prolific here and much of Oz. Aggressive buggers but can be coaxed to sit on ones arm for food] He shit coloured feathers for days after.  Hiding3

Galahs have a reputation for being a dumb bird. So much so that a politer way of calling someone stupid was to call them a galah [though I haven't heard that used for some time] They're not quite as big as a cockatoo but still too big to swallow whole. 
Pretty birds though. 

Galahs;

Wooki mainly catches Indian Myna birds. They're an aggressive pest species that attack other birds and animals.
Horrible creatures. Land gulls I call em. 
Some councils have eradication programmes and some even pay a bounty on them.
As kids neighbours would pay a mate and I to shoot the buggers with slug guns. 

The Indian Myna.

Wooki does his bit as an environmentalist. Swallows them whole while they're still kicking  Yeah3
