Shelter for Critters?

Prepper's talk about various bunkers, earth sheltered homes, shelter in place, etc.  but what about your critters?

Lately I've been looking at "off the grid" options of living on a small scale....5-10 acres, in a remote, yet accessible area.  Possible critters would include a few goats, chickens, a bee hive, etc.  along with a nice veggie garden with perhaps a small green house.

Even if I have an underground bunker or earth sheltered home, living roof, etc...what about the critters if the SHTF?

An earth covered/sheltered barn is perhaps the answer!  In my example, one about 12' X 16' with self contained water & food supply for several days would probably suffice.  It wouldn't be that expensive to build and just may save your critters!

Here are some other ideas I've found:  Earth Sheltered Greenhouse

Green Roofs...Barns, homes, & more!
