I got to thinking today."Should people use building permits when building there survival reatreat?".As much as I stress building to code,I think that a survival retreat is an exeption.One of the main things of a survival retreat,is keeping it private.But by filing building permits with your county and state just makes it about as ""Here I am Feds,come and look at all this gear that will help you in a disaster!!" as you can get.Imagine this.Theres a global collapse,but the Feds are going around looking for food,water,survival gear,etc to "" Help people out"" in this time of need.Well if everyone filed there building permits,then all the Feds have to do is go to the city hall and or state department,and look for those "Hunting cabins" and "Vacation homes" and also........"Survival retreats".Even if you go to the great pains of concealment and security for your retreat,the Feds will still find you with the aid of(you guessed it)the building permits that you filed with the county and state.What are your thoughts on this???
