    Constructing a Wood Tornado Shelter (4 of 6)

    Before the plywood sheathing goes up, the door jamb must be installed. The door jamb is made from three 2 by 6s, two for the side jambs and one for the top. Recall that a portion of the tongue of the beam above the entrance was removed before it was installed. As you can see here, that was done to provide a flat surface for the door jamb’s installation. Each 2 by 6 is cross cut to fit the dimensions of the entrance and the rip cut to a width of 4.5 in. to match the width of the wall. The door jambs are nailed and glued to the wall…

    History Brief: Family Fallout Shelters

    Many communities were building large public fallout shelters intended for thousands of people. But what if a public shelter wasn’t nearby or became overcrowded? Were there any steps individual families could take to protect themselves from nuclear fallout? Throughout the 1950s and ‘60s, many families constructed personal fallout shelters in their backyards. Companies marketed several different “family models” for homeowners hoping to protect their families. These ranged from a $13.50 “foxhole kit” all the way up to the $5,000 “deluxe model” which featured beds, a phone, toilet, and a Geiger counter for detecting radiation levels.
