not sure what your budget is, but why not just make a can house?

My grandparents had one that was recessed into the bank (south facing).  It stayed around the low 50s, year round in there.  We kept all of our canned goods and potatoes in there.  Potatoes would last till summer with a few going bad here and there.

 

EDIT:  it was made from cement blocks and had a tin roof for part of it that stuck out from the bank

Pre-fab tornado shelter would do the same thing. 

 

Depending on where you live, FEMA will even pay for a good chunk of it.

Aa this altitude, the interior of something like that would be freezing in the winter.  It will have to be buried below the frost layer.  About 36 inches.

 

 

No historical tornado event recording magnitude 2 or above has ever occurred in or near Santa Fe, NM.  Ever.  Eastern New Mexico, out on the flatlands, yeah.  Like 10-12 a year.  Something about the mountains keeping the clouds from getting too turbulent.

In Scandinavia, where the frost line is really deep, they put the metric equivalent of 4x8 sheets of 2” thick rigid insulation flat on the ground next to houses, then put pavers on top of them. That raises the frost line by a huge amount, so they can do a foundation in one pour instead of two. Look up “shallow insulated foundation”.

Finally heard from the company.  Apparently, they already have two units sold and installed in the US.

 

They need to do something about their artwork, though.

Epoxies are the obvious answer, but also consider urethanes:

Those seem to be cost prohibitive.  So far, I can't find epoxy sold anywhere in state.
