How does it anchor in? What is the best way to anchor it?

How does it anchor in? What is the best way to anchor it?
Asked by: Teri
Use and care does not include how best to anchor this...to a cement floor with anchors, to a wood floor and wall with anchors? Does it come with anchor bolts? What size are the anchor holes?

Since there are no interior photos on-line, is there bench seating and or any internal storage?
Asked by: bill
It's just a big box, no bench in this one. The larger one has a bench.

Does this item deliver assembled?

If came unassembled , how hard is it to assemble and install?
Asked by: CuriousG
No, it comes in a big box in panels. It expects you will install it...or pay someone else too.

What are the deminsions of each panel when it arrives taken apart? It looks as if each panel is 2ft X the height.

Asked by: Mcsavy
I installed this for a customer so I don't have access to the finished product right now but your assumptions are correct the panels are approximately 2'X7'

I installed it alone, with very little help collecting fasteners from my young children. The door is the heaviest and hardest piece to handle. I would not single installation for most people. It took about 5 hours (with a short lunch in the middle). The one thing I will complain about is that there were NO instructions. It came with a short checklist that mainly concerned itself with anchoring. A big box of varying fasteners and all the panels. Most of the fasteners were for between the panels, but they had some odd captive fasteners for the roof. Good instructions would have told me what was packed in, and things like to install the door first. I waited til the end, and it needed to be installed within the other panels, so I had to deconstruct a little. Also, install the captive fasteners before putting the roof on, I worked around it, but it would have been annoying if one would not have installed. There really is no reason to not have a 1-2 sheet basic installation instruction. I figured it out, but it would have made me feel more comfortable during installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hope to never use this shelter, but tornados do hit central Texas occasionally. The shelter I received is a new model of the 4x4 Hovel. I was surprised by the difference, but appreciate the new features, especially the vent/egress hatch. Assembly was very simple and took a couple of hours with just a little help moving the panels into position. All of the required hardware was in the crate. Rapid delivery, and excellent delivery service to my home. They placed it in my garage, close to the installation point. A couple of installation questions to the factory were quickly handled and allowed for minimal delay in the installation. Hard to say what the "value"(cost) should be. $4000 seems high, but definately worth having when needed.
