Sure, your house can uphold the elements. Rain, snow, and wind are no match for it’s sturdy foundation and exterior walls. But what about the zombie apocalypse? That’s right. Zombies. With a recent reemergence into our culture thanks to hit TV shows (The Walking Dead) and movies (World War Z), zombies are becoming more mainstream than ever.
Some preppers would argue that a military invasion or natural disaster are more likely uses for these apocalyptic residential properties, but no one is ruling out zombies just yet. Having a well-equipped, military grade fortress that’s strong enough to keep any unwanted guest out or a home that’s almost impossible to get to is the main focus for these “end-of-days” homes. Which one would you choose to live in during a zombie infestation?
