I know a lot of you on here are or are working on being prepared with water, food, munitions ect ect.
What have you done to fortify the home for bugging in. I have been thinking about gettign some 3/4 ply when I see it on sale for lower level windows ect. Now I know its not going to stop rounds from coming in but it will block line of sight and they wont be able to kick the glass out and climb in.
What do you think would be best after I cut it to size for each window. I was thinking 3" deck screws, but if the power is out and my cordless is dead how an I gonna drive 100 3" screws by hand Looks like good ole hammer and nails
I don't rally want to drill my window cases for a possible problem that may never arise, but I dont want to be caught with my pants down either.
What else have you done or what else are some good things to think about and plan for to fortify the castle.
I'm on the third floor. I have a security system which includes motion sensitive IR cameras. Solid doors. The only window that is accessible from outside (via a neighbors window and a scary climb) is blocked. The rest can only be opened from the inside. You break one you'll be dead before you get through and you'll need a 30' latter to reach it. I also have chimes on the windows and doors. I have some form of weapon easily accessible from anywhere I may be (example shown below). I always have a gun on me. Any questions? Lol
There isn't much you can do to fortify a wood frame house. It can be shot thru like a piece of cheese. It can be burned very easily. Even if your house is bricked, a couple torches on the roof and you're screwed. If they lay siege to your place then what? You can't stay there forever. I believe it was General Patton that said fixed fortifications were monuments to mans stupidity. Sure you can prepare for bad weather assuming it isn't a tornado but fortifying against determined attackers would be damn near impossible.
Yes i realize you cant keep out everybody. It would be wise to strengthen the perimeter to keep out stray looters and such. Most would turn away if access wasn't easy. There is alway the chance of a determined attacker, but a shotgun or rifle should cure bad intentions.
you can board up your windows without drilling any holes in the casing/siding.
1. Cut the plywood panel to fit snug inside the exterior frame.
2. Remove operable section of window
3. Use 2x cross pieces to span across the window jambs
4. Install carriage thru-bolts from ext-int
sort of like this
