Would You Live in This Safe House?

Would You Live in This Safe House?

Is the world's seemingly increasing violence getting to you? Are you worried about a zombie apocalypse? Looking for a place to hide out during the rapture? If so, this may be the home for you!

When I saw KWK Promes' Safe House over at Home DSGN, my first thought was that it was a little extreme. And then, with sirens blaring outside my window and reports of roving mobs of unruly teenagers threatening the streets of Chicago, I started to reconsider my initial reaction. Maybe the Safe House isn't such a bad idea after all.

As you can see in the first photo, the house can be completely closed up inside its concrete shell, protecting you from unruly teenagers and zombies alike. With its movable walls and drawbridge (black cat not included), you can also open the house up to the outside when you're feeling a little less threatened.

So theoretically you could open the big shutters and movable walls during the day and enjoy the great outdoors and then at night you can close the house back up and feel safe and secure in your little cocoon. My reticence about this is that, with the house closed, I might feel like I'm living in a prison. Then again, if I shifted my thinking to imagine this as a modern day castle, minus the moat, it might be doable. And if a zombie was narrowing in on me and my brain, I could definitely do it!

So what do you think? Would you be able to live in the Safe House?
