Built to Survive
How We Designed & Built a Sustainable, Secure & Survivable Custom Home
This book explores the possibility of surviving natural disasters, blackouts, and cyber attacks that could last for months or even years. Authored by a government contractor who witnessed and experienced these scenarios firsthand, the book narrates the story of how he and his wife Rachel designed and built a custom home that can operate off the grid and without public utilities for at least a year. Despite its elements of preparedness, the book also incorporates a family's desire for a normal middle-class living. With the details of the home design plan and advice on how you can adopt a similar lifestyle, this book will help readers create a place capable of supporting a comfortable lifestyle during times of crisis.
