Dawn Of The Shed: A UK Company Designs A Zombie Proof Home. Honestly!

I soooooo need one of these when wandering around the Bad Lands. This would be an ideal hide away when I go out on weekend missions. I could leave the boys with Deb’s for a few days while I go out slaying.

This is a zombie proof home that has been designed by a UK company. A shed building company in Leeds has realised that there are many people who fear that a zombie apocalypse could happen and so they designed this zombie proof shelter for them in mind.

With the outbreak of Ebola which doesn’t seem to be going away the fear is that it is coming soon so you will want one of these asap! You can have one of these built for the affordable sum of £69,995 ($99900) but if you want the CCTV system, solar panels and riot gear which to me is a must (a zombie proof home needs solar power!) then you will need to pay £20,780 ($29650) extra.

To be honest though, when it comes to survival and avoiding the bite-ies you cannot put a price on safety right?

It has been called the Zombie Fortification Cabin and it comes with an escape hatch, an indoor garden, a weapons store and a full 360 view point. It also comes with a 10 year anti zombie guarantee. I kid you not.

There is an optional water cannon and flame thrower but they will cost extra to be fitted.

As we English say, ‘An Englishman’s home is his castle’ or in this case ‘An Englishman’s home is a zombie proof Zombie Fortification Cabin’

For a total of £90,000 you can have this incredible zombie proof home that is solar powered, has a garden for food and also has a weapons storage.

Unfortunately for people here in the UK weapons are not readily available as they are in the US.

Unless like me you raided a military base when the ZA struck you might have to do with an axe, catapult and hand full of stones.

So far there has been no buyers so the ZFC1 is still only a concept project and not one has yet been built.

The company behind the ZFC1 is Tiger Log Cabins of Leeds UK. They say that they have not yet had any sales but there have been some ‘serious’ enquiries from people living in America… Really?

Managing Director Ross Moran told the mail online ‘We’ve had a few people from America interested who are taking it a bit literally. They’re thinking about having it on their ranch.’

He added: ‘Obviously it’s a bit of a joke but the cabin is buildable’.

The zombie cabin idea came about after a chat in the office between staff discussing what would happen if there was a zombie apocalypse.

Marketing director Jack Sutcliffe said: ‘The conversation went from there and one of the team jokingly suggested that we would all be OK because we could just build ourselves a special log cabin and all hide in there. From there the idea was born and we thought “well, why not”.’

No one knows what the planning laws are when it comes to building a shelter ready for the zombie apocalypse so this could present problems when the time comes to building one for real.  

Mr Moran said: ‘We’d have to say that,  we tell all our customers – check with your local authority because they all have different rules, even when it comes to preventing a deadly swarm of the undead’.

Before the ZA planning laws might be an issue but I imagine when the ZA comes the planning laws would go out of the window!

The internet went crazy when news of the Zombie Fortification Cabin was first released leading to their website getting a lot of reviews including these:

‘Shaun of the Dead’ called it the ‘Winchester of Log Cabins’ adding: ‘In my time I’ve had little respect as an electronics shop employee, with no real direction in life. But when I bought this Zombie proof log cabin I became the envy of all my neighbours!

‘It’s big enough for me as well as my girlfriend and rather vulgar unemployed best friend (who could quite easily be mistaken for a zombie!). With this, any potential zombie apocalypse which could overwhelm the town, I’ll have a nice cup of tea and wait for it all to blow over.’

Even a disgruntled zombie left a comment: ‘I officially HATE this zombie proof log cabin!!

‘Having roamed our way through the land mines, in just about one piece, a cluster of us avoided the flamethrowers and made it to the walls. No matter what we tried (eating through the walls, climbing to the roof etc) we just couldn’t break in.

‘Unfortunately, as time wore on it became obvious this was a lost cause and some 28 days later we gave up.’

If you were not sure how to kill a zombie there are instructional posters found in the weapons store.

As we know, the bite-ies are mean bastards and they will stop at nothing to rip you to shreds and so if you need a zombie proof home and have £90k ($130k) spare then this is the building for you!
