Recently, there has been quite a craze about building escape rooms to keep you and your family safe in the event of a break-in. These things can easily cost five figures or more, depending on which options you select from an always lengthy list of add-ons to the basic package.
Yet the basic function of such a safe harbor can just as easily be accomplished one of two ways. The first is that you can move to a much safer place where you don’t have to worry about such insanity coming to visit you.
The second is a simply DIY project. Homemade escape rooms are relatively easy and cheap to construct. You just need an interior space such as a closet. You screw one or more thicknesses of heavy plywood to the interior walls and replace the flimsy hollow core interior door with a heavy fire-rated exterior door.
That’s really all there is to one of these things on the most basic level.
