Ever hear of the term “preppers?” These are the people that take it upon themselves to prepare for any possible apocalypse scenario you can imagine. Some carry their trusty “Zombie Survival Guide,” everywhere they go. Some have coordinated escape plans in case of economic collapse. Some have stored up years of food and guns in case of military takeover.
Then, there are the preppers that take it to a whole new level. They build homes that make one stare in wonder. These people construct housing that is either ultra secure, or hilariously insecure, despite all their careful planning. Either way, these homes are definitely something worth checking out.

Armored plating, mounted guns, and elevated in the middle of the sea? They prepared for anything! Though, how much food can you fit in there?
With apocalyptic scenarios, there’s no such thing as overkill. Only insurance.

Put the right critters in that moat, with a little bridge protection and anti-air support, and you are looking at a pretty fortified home.
Great flood? Who needs an ark?
