  • The Secure Home by Joel Skousen.

    Design/remodeling of high security, survival homes, with built-in vault room, security shelter and alternate energy

    If you are considering building a new home, moving to a previously owned home, or just wanna make your current home more secure then I highly recommend this book.

    I wish I had this book when I built my home. Looking back I got alot of things right, but I also overlooked some :( I honestly feel that if I had read this book before I considered building, I would have understood the construction of my home from a S&P perspective and made some better choices:)

    One of the items I was really impressed with is constructing a bullet resistant room using pea gravel and c channel steel studs. With wood studs you have this small window of every 16" where a bullet can penetrate. With C channel steel studs the gravel can be placed in the hollow channel to provide bullet resistance. Pretty cool IMHO for a low cost method :cool:

    It costs $45 but is worth the money if you plan on building soon... or just wanna make what you got better :)


    Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
    beat you to death with it because it is empty.

    The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.
