    Has anyone seen the BBC mini-series titled "1900 House"? It was produced in 1999 and rebroadcast on PBS in 2001. The premise was to remodel a London row house as a lower-middle class Victorian house and place a modern family in the house for three months to see how they coped. It's a real eye...

    You are in a house and are in need of clearing it. Let's say you are not bogged down by much gear. You have a choice, a pistol caliber carbine or a short barreled AR-15 in .223 (with or without a butt stock). I know a pistol is the most tight-area maneuverable gun you could use, but I'd rather...

    Hey all, I am in the process of buying my first home. I always kinda felt like I would be wasting my time with any kind of long term preps at a house I was renting, because of the " you never know " factor. Now I am excited to have my own house on my own property, and I would like to slowly make...

    I'm not "rich", but I am blessed to be in a position that I am preparing to buy some property, design and build my own "dream home". This will be the house I plan to remain in for the rest of my life (Now in my 30's). So, as work on the house design, I want to incorporate themes and features...

    I'm relatively new to the forum, and wanted to ask if I was the only one looking into this. I've got a BOL if need be, but would like to try and stay put if we could rode out a tempoarary interruprtion in everyday life. I live in a condo complex with shared roofs, and if a place catches fire, it...

    I heard a few years ago that if you had to bug out, or worse yet, shelter in, you should char the eves on your home as well as trash the gutters and throw trash and furniture on the front lawn to give lutors the sense of a previously ransacked house. Anyone else ever heard this theory?

    Yesterday I was working in the yard when I began to think about all the projects I want to do to make the house more "survival ready". For instance I am cutting down all the dead/sick trees and installing a wood burner to heat the house. I would also like solar panels on the roof and maybe a...

    Too many variables to be able to answer. Nobody knows what's going to happen, or to what degree, or even what the effects of it will be. The other variables are going to involve the people in the area. Whether the gangs are organized enough, and whether the residents are going to be able to...

    I have recently moved from a very bad, drug/crime-ridden neighborhood. To say I have downsized is an UNDERSTATEMENT, but I've traded my house for a 25 foot RV camper trailer. You would think my fiancee and I would have a hard time adjusting to a smaller place, or that she would be complaining...

    Hello all, I was looking at ways to "harden" my home. In particular I'm looking into my options for our doors and windows. During my research I came across several articles on the effectiveness of Security Film. Do any of you have experience with security film? Would you recommend it?
