A bunker is a military defense structure designed to protect people and valuable materials from falling bombs, artillery or other attacks. Bunkers are almost always underground, unlike log homes, which are mostly above ground.
A 200 square foot bunker costs an average of $52,750 just for the bunker itself. Most bunkers of this size range from $37,000 to $65,500. Smaller bunkers might only cost around $19,000, but you can easily spend upwards of $8 million for a large underground shelter.
