The latest concept in fractional ownership? Own deeded shares in a “doomsday” bunker and have guaranteed shelter for your family in the event of a natural or man-made catastrophe. Terra Vivos is building a network of 20 shelters across the United States and possibly more in other countries.

The Vivos complexes will be deep underground, airtight, fully self-contained shelters designed to survive virtually any catastrophe, or threat scenario including natural disasters, a nuclear blast, chemical and biological weapons, or even social anarchy. Each self-contained shelter complex will comfortably accommodate a community of 172 – 200 people, in spacious quarters, for up to 1 year of autonomous survival to ride out the potential events.

All shelters include complete and fully furnished living quarters, with semi-private bedrooms, deluxe bathrooms, kitchen and dining areas, spacious lounges and meeting areas, computers, theater electronics, exercise equipment, well stocked educational and entertainment materials, an urgent medical and dental care center, security facilities with a detention area, vaults for valuables and munitions, a communications center, laundry facilities, a repair shop, and abundant storage areas for food, fuel, water, medicine, supplies and clothing.

The first shelter is an existing structure being retrofitted in Barstow, California, halfway between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. You can view a video of the Barstow shelter here. Share pricing is $50,000 per adult and $25,000 per child age 16 or younger. For more information, see
