Isn't there somebody on here that started a business with some buddies? I use to have a PM but must have deleted it. Looking at getting one installed soon hopefully. Any suggestions?

Don't be poor. Have a basement.

I have a Flatsafe. They came and did exactly the job they said they would do. There was a bit of a scheduling issue that was on the office person, I think, but other than that it was smooth. I would strongly recommend getting the big one. Since we're only three people we got a smaller one...and it's smaaalllll. Granted, it's going to help keep us alive when a tornado hits our house, but man. It's cozy in there.

ground zero did mine... i would recommend them.
January 28th, 2013 08:51 AM
F5. They've been advertising like crazy lately. I get at least one flyer a week in the mail from them.
January 28th, 2013 09:02 AM
Ground Zero for us. Fast, easy, and clean. I did some pretty thorough research and they were far and away the best and most respected. A little more expensive (not much) than the others, but well worth it.

Let's get a group together for a volume discount. I'm in.
January 28th, 2013 09:32 AM
I've got one for you.
January 28th, 2013 09:53 AM
I was the guy you talked to. Send me a PM.
January 28th, 2013 09:54 AM
That's our company.

Good luck finding someone in OKC to build you a basement. And, by the way, I know you're just being a smartass, but basements are standard up north and don't add any value to your home, just space. I totally wish we had basements around here. My dad & brother-in-law has an extra 600 sq. ft. because of theirs.
January 28th, 2013 10:08 AM
PM with some details and pricing.
January 28th, 2013 10:25 AM
Quit with the flyers already. They're bothering people.
Otoh they must be working
January 28th, 2013 10:46 AM
If you pay over $2500 for a concrete that holds 8 then you've overpaid.
If this is what you are looking for then these types of shelters are all basically made by the same company. When we bought ours the price ranged from $2500-$4500.

Those outdoor cellars are not an option for many people in urban neighborhoods. Unless you live on a corner, it's going to be difficult for them to get all the equipment required in your back yard.
January 28th, 2013 11:22 AM
I'm guessing you live in Edmond? We hit that area really hard.
January 28th, 2013 11:27 AM
do you guys do big outside underground ones?
Our home backs up to an open field so getting equipment in really shouldn't be a problem
January 28th, 2013 11:32 AM
Don't be poor. Move to California!
January 28th, 2013 11:34 AM
Am I the only one that thought the OP would be "Whats up with that?"
January 28th, 2013 11:45 AM
We don't. We usually refer people that want them to red dirt septic.
January 28th, 2013 11:46 AM
Can two people really sit across from each other in a shelter that's only 3 ft wide? Does your knee go in their crotchal area?
January 28th, 2013 11:50 AM
that's what I hate about these garage ones. Even the ones that advertise 8+ people are cramped and small. I remember as a kid having a lot of room in our neighbors' shelters that were underground in the back
January 28th, 2013 12:10 PM
No. You need a 5ft wide shelter to be able to sit across from eachother. There is a night and day difference between a 3ft wide shelter and a 5ft wide shelter.
January 28th, 2013 12:38 PM
Then he would want a wildfire/earthquake shelter.
January 28th, 2013 01:06 PM
Which he wouldn't be able to afford, b/c with the way tax rates are going out there, he'd end up poor.
January 28th, 2013 01:49 PM
Is there anyone selling f6 shelters? I don't want to die in an f6 with an f5 shelter.
January 28th, 2013 02:23 PM
F5 - the website isn't working. Is all this LT traffic blowing it up?
So, some are advertising coal tar expoxy coating which is the best while others have epoxy painted steel as their cheaper end. What materials would I be looking for?
January 28th, 2013 03:10 PM
Chances are pretty good you won't be in your home long enough for it to matter to you.
January 28th, 2013 03:33 PM
Looks like its up and running now.
January 28th, 2013 03:34 PM
January 28th, 2013 03:49 PM
it's up but links are not working...at least the ones i tried
January 28th, 2013 04:13 PM
you really suck at the internet bounce.
January 28th, 2013 06:10 PM
January 28th, 2013 07:35 PM
I need one that my BIG dogs can walk into, holds lots of people, that can be installed at Texhoma.... and won't break the bank...
January 28th, 2013 07:40 PM
You were a kid. You were smaller.
January 28th, 2013 08:53 PM
Well yeah. Middle school through high school. Our bright had a decent size one where about 10 of us fit nicely. My fire d had a circular one that was huge

March 12th, 2013 04:15 PM
So how much of a mess do they make installing one?
March 12th, 2013 04:20 PM
The **** kind if question is that?
March 12th, 2013 04:21 PM
I need to know if I need to completely remove everything from my garage or not

The only mess that was left after mine was done was you could make out the tracks from the digger on the driveway and a little dust. There's really not a whole lot to it.
drop in shelter
March 12th, 2013 04:22 PM
I was really wondering about if they let water run everywhere while cutting
