How cool is this?

People are turning abandoned missile silos into houses. It just sounds so cool. And 15,000 square feet for $150,000? Even with renovation costs at double that, it's still practically nothing, at least compared to the obscene cost of real estate where I live.

I love weird stuff like this. I once saw a story about someone who bought an old plane, gutted the inside, and turned it into a house. Of course, it probably looked a little strange to have a plane parked there by the side of the road, unlike a silo, which presumably you don't see much of at all, seeing as it's underground. I do wonder whether the lack of windows might be a problem, but it does look like there's natural light in the picture, so maybe it comes in from above.
