A Condo Tower Underground
Hall didn't buy this place just for himself. He's built the steel skeleton for a 14-story condo tower here. But this tower doesn't rise up from the prairie. Instead, it descends almost 200 feet down.
The missile and four-megaton thermonuclear warhead are long gone, but the thick subterranean concrete and steel walls built to weather a nuclear blast aren't going anywhere, Hall says.
"I mean, wow. This thing will protect us against everything. I don't care what your particular threat is. We've pretty much got you covered," he says.
"One banker was really funny," Hall says. "He put it this way ... 'Let me get this right. You're essentially wanting a mortgage that you're essentially betting that you won't have to repay, because the world's going to hell in a handbasket.'
"I said, 'Yeah, that doesn't sound good, does it?'"
