In the 1960s, the home buyer had a deep concern in interest in security and safety. While the publication touted that the shelter could be used as a sauna, a wine cellar, a game room, a study, a guest room, a home office, a utility room, a music room, a photographic dark room, or a storage room, the room was primarily designed to be used as a fallout shelter. Floorplans and text explain how to construct each shelter to safely house the family in case of a nuclear disaster. From the Old House Journal library.
