I heard about this on the news today. It looks like the old USA missile silos from the cold war era are being sold off and developed.

Its a shame they didn't do them as well as they could have been done, given them a real cold war era feel and style. Instead they look whitewashed and tacky.

Good idea though.

I have been to this one in 2009 http://www.titanmissilemuseum.org/ It is the last remaining one still set up as it was during the cold war. Those who were on duty there then, said that the main worry was the rattle snakes that sometimes got stuck in the safety hatch just below the surface. It is now a museum (everything was decomissioned in the '80s) Don't know if I'd want one as a house though, lol!
