Leeds company producing real-life zombie-proof cabins

Zombie-Proof Cabin

The threat of an imminent zombie apocalypse has inspired a Leeds-based company to produce a cabin that keeps zombies away.

The Zombie Fortification Cabin (ZFC-1), made by Tiger Log Cabins, claims to be secure enough to stop any zombies from getting inside.

But even if zombies were to breach the boundaries, owners can use any artillery they have on the upper deck that boasts a 360-degree vantage point against a zombie horde.

Jack Sutcliffe, website manager at Tiger Log Cabins, said: “Over the last few years’ zombie culture has been on the rise. From zombie role play games to newly released TV shows like The Walking Dead. Zombies are an increasingly common presence in day-to-day life.

“The planning for this zombie proof log cabin was methodical and thorough with all scenarios and eventualities considered. It was vital that the log cabin would not only be structurally sound and secure but also the ideal solution to keep zombies at bay.”

The cabin boasts re-enforced slit windows, walls and doors, barbed wire surrounding, a kitchen area with a microwave, and an escape hatch to make a quick getaway.

It even has an arsenal storage unit for weaponry, a toilet system, and a garden section to grow vegetables.

Ross Moran, managing director at Tiger Log Cabins, said: “Tiger Log cabins wants to be at the forefront of log cabin design and developing side projects like the ZFC-1 really projects our forward thinking approach.”

The cabin costs £69,995, excluding instillation.

One review on the Tiger Log Cabins website reads: ‘This log cabin is amazing. Although I’m sure the military would try to stop flesh eating zombies taking over the world, I feel far safer in this than anything else which could be provided.

‘I was thinking about stealing a helicopter from work but why would I need one when I can sit back, unwind and relax in this zombie fortification cabin without the need to run.’

One from ‘Roger Rotter the Zombie’ reads: ‘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. I have been forced therefore to rate this product 1 out of 5 – to clear up any confusion this is NOT suitable for zombies!’
