    If I had the land and money I would put one of these up in a heartbeat, with a composting toliet, solar panels, wood burning stove, etc...

    security

    I would be a little worried about the security of contents while I was away and the resistance to gunfire while home, just my personal preference, that
    is why I prefer brick, preferably heavy concrete and brick and earth.

    and a tin foil hat... just kidding
    My weapon can kill, it isn't limited to mere assault

      Looks like a good way to go in deserts and coastal areas maybe. In the "woods" I'd prefer a harder structure to protect me from not only human attack as mentioned earlier, but bear, coyote, koons, etc. I believe a bear would come on in if it smells dinner cooking. :eek:
      JUST CURIOUS? PRUNES ARE DEHYDRATED PLUMS. SO WHERE DOES PRUNE JUICE COME FROM?

          I honestly don't know what one would do when it comes to establishing a permanent residence in a post-SHTF world with all kinds of loonies running about. I think a lot of it would depend on how many people you have with you. If you had enough you could post guards and shit. I know how a Platoon can build fortifications (with the help of HESCOs & good old fashioned sandbags) and defend itself in Indian Country. But if you were alone or if there were just 2 of you, it'd be really hard to pull guard on a perpetual basis with no conceivable ending. And like someone mentioned, it would be damned risky leaving your place. AND, if it's not bullet-proof / highly defensible, then that's a dangerous proposition too. It would really suck to have to fight from something made of sheetrock or nylon. I almost feel like it'd be better to maintain a mobile campsite with some good high ground & natural defenses. But then you have the issue of not being able to stockpile supplies. Particularly food. I seriously don't know.

            Post SHTF if you did not have atleast a group of 10 i would say it would be very unsafe to have a permanent place unless it was far back in the sticks and you were very careful about covering your tracks and made sure noone was following you.
