    That's very clever. I wonder what the building material is, if it's really secure?

    I don't see anywhere to shoot out of when it's in the 'feeling of being secure' state. :eek:

    Yea, that thing is awesome! A little razor wire and a mounted .50 at each corner of the roof and you are all set for the zombie apocolypse.

    It has way too many retractable doors/panels that will require maintenance and according to Murphy's Law will fail at the worst possible time. :( So no, I do not believe that design is a zombie proof house.

    I do like the drawbridge element and would incorporate that concept myself. As for a stronghold against any zombie hordes I would have no doors (outside of the drawbridge) and windows - there would be nothing I would want to see. Any views necessary could be gained from a rooftop lookout. :cool:

    That is most interesting. Although I doubt the material is concrete or metal. Its probably disguised wood paneling.

    I would eliminate the first floor glass windows and replace them with solid concrete. The draw bridge would be the only point of access.

    Kind of a Bauhaus archetecture style with a Frank Lloyd Wright twist.

    Actually it reminds me of one of our 3 stack height concrete tilt up buildings. Three stack would allow for a second floor and tall cielings. Probably steel stud walls for interiors. Kind of like a TI (tennant improvement) for a commercial building. Cost per square foot could be relatively inexpensive compaired to traditional residential building methods.

    Hey all he needs to do is call Red Jacket and get some of them remote controlled M-16 with Beta mags on the corners. Then you could get one of them $15k Estes Rocket launchers. I think you would be good to go.


    I would replace the glass with 6" thick Transparent Aluminum. Now that would KICK zombie butt.

    Notice he is a Graphics Designer, not an Architect. A very stupid design.

    Besides, everyone knows they are not allowed to enter your home unless they are invited.


    Wait, that is Vampires. Nevermind.:D

    Sheesh tango, everyone knows you only need 1" thick transparent aluminum, it's as strong as 6" plexiglass.

    If 1" of aluminum is good then 6" is 6 times better.
