Tiny Fallout Shelter House – Design Concept

I’ve got a hobby – a weird one – and its the study of fallout shelters and nuclear war survival. I’m Gen-X and grew up during the cold war. So for fun – and maybe as a weird sort of therapy – I started learning about fallout and nuclear war as a teenager.

I’m also an optimist, so went into the study of nuclear war with the hope of finding an answer other than doom. I’ve written about it before and posted tiny fallout shelter designs but today I thought I’d share the basics of nuclear war survival and shelter design – and a small home that would function nicely as a fallout shelter.

The most important thing you should know is that nuclear war is totally survivable. Hollywood disagrees – but once you learn a few facts about the fallout from a nuclear bombs you’ll see what I mean.

The fallout from a nuclear bomb has an incredible short half-life. Within 30 days the radiation is essentially gone – except for a few long living isotopes (variations of strontium and iodine) that will continue to show up for years in certain foods (like milk). Most of the material caught-up in a nuclear blast is not naturally radioactive, so it’s temporary charge is very short lived. You can measure the half-life of fallout in hours, not years. For each factor of seven increase in time, the radiation from fallout is reduced by a factor of ten. In other words, 7 hours after the blast the radioactivity of the fallout has dropped by a factor of 10. 49 hours later it’s dropped by a factor of 100. After ...Read More

California DIY, shipping container tiny home and a cargo trailer bedroom



Lulu is a single mom who’d gone back to school and didn’t have the time or interest in working full-time to pay for rent. So when she had to move out of her more conventional home, she decided to move herself and her daughter into a shipping container.
With no building experience, Lulu spent just one month cutting windows and a door and installing insulation and a basic kitchen (complete with propane-powered campstove and on-demand water heater). 
Then she and her daughter moved into the 8 by 20 foot square foot home, fitting a bed, couch, bookshelf and kitchen cabinets into the 160 square foot box.
When Lulu decided they needed a bit more space, she went from shipping to trucking waste and began to build their bedroom on a used flatbed trailer.
“It’s really mostly built like a shed. It’s a nice looking shed, but it’s really an 8 by 16 shed with windows in it.”
Using only recycled building materials- including used floorboards, windows, cabinets, doors, bathtub, toilet and sinks- she built the entire thing for about $4,000 (trailer included).

Simple Stairs For The Tiny House



During a tiny house build or quick travel trailer setup a decent set of steps would be great. Too many people have been injured on a rickety set of metal steps or even a cascading pile of cinderblock. In this video I quickly show how to cobble together a simple set of wooden steps that are sturdy and pretty attractive to boot!
