Abandoned Missile Silo Transformed Into Home For $900,000

When Bruce Townsley heard that anyone who had enough money could buy a nuclear missile silo for themselves on a TV show in the mid 80′s, he just wanted to have his “20th century castle”. Bruce tracked down the real estate agent who was selling the property, Ed Peden, and bought it off for $900,000 in 1997 (30 years after the silo had been shut down).

Bruce turned the silo into a coolest living pad ever!
