A Home for the Zombie Apocalypse
The 5th season of The Walking Dead is on its 3rd episode and it shows no sign of aging. I’m just wondering when the group will find shelter similar to Herschel’s farm or the prison. I’m not a reader of the comic book so I have no basis of where the series will go next. Sometimes–usually after watching an episode of the show, I look around at our old, semi-concrete house and try to imagine how long it will last in the zombie apocalypse. Our house sits in the middle of a rectangular lot; our backyard is filled with old fruit-bearing trees, which can be a target once food becomes scarce. The stone fence is easy to scale by living people. The windows of our house are mostly capiz, making them vulnerable to invaders. In order to placate my paranoia, I have various projects in mind to fortify our home, like making the stone walls higher and topping them with barbed wire and adding iron grills to our wooden windows.
Or, I could just purchase one of these cabins and have it built in the backyard, kind of like an enlarged panic room for us. According to NERDAPPROVED.COM, the ZFC-1 (Zombie Fortification Cabin) comes with “a ten year anti-zombie guarantee, reinforced slit windows, walls, and doors, an arsenal storage unit, garden section to make sure you don’t starve, a toilet system, a living room with entertainment, and more. You can customize the 44′ x 30′ cabin which will run a whopping $112,800 for the base model. Extras include installation, water cannons, flame throwers, riot gear, solar panel, etc.”
It’s a very pricey investment. If the zombie apocalypse doesn’t happen, I can probably use the place to host apocalypse-themed parties or viewing parties of zombie films or boot camp-styled team building events. Read the whole story HERE.
