Wow. And I was one of the many doubters thinking "there's no way he could find a space like that".

I sit corrected.

I am tempted to buy it... alas, I do not have 1.5 million dollars.

Hmmm, I live in Washington. Would be kind of a commute for my wife though. However, I could come that much closer to world domination.

I called it first! If I scrape up the 1.5 million then I get the base! Besides, I suspect that I am further along on the path to world domination than you. I have a cult following of 10,000 men willing to give up their lives for me.

Wow, that's pretty intense. I like all the question on the ebay site about the possibility of remodeling for residential use. It talks about living in a missile silo and using the 1 ton silo doors as a 155' high giant skylight. Talk about a swanky pad.

That siloworld site is amazing. I spent my whole lunch hour there. I wish I had the money to buy it. Not too far for my commute in to work in Spokane. My wife thinks I'm nuts for even dreaming of turning one into living quarters.

That really isn't all that unusual. Throughout my state, there are several underground missile silos that have sold (not as large at that one) that were made into residences.
I've never toured one, but they have been featured on TV news shorts, etc.

well based on the general description of how close it is to I-90, I'm guessing its this base here:

If I buy this, it will just be so that I can LARP Fallout.

Can we pool our resources? Perhaps declaring it to be Sovereign Lusitania? No one would **** with us, we'd be armed!
