My wife and I are talking about building our own house out in the country in the next few years. We want a nice plot of land where I can shoot, possibly hunt and grow a nice sized garden. Home security still bothers me living out that far in the country. I've heard more horror stories living in the country then living in town.
My thoughts are having windows high enough where burglars can't get into them. I'll set window alarms in the basement and all the windows. What kinds of doors are good to prevent break in's? I've heard some people have installed solid oak doors with a steel core and a steel frame with dead locks. I don't want it to look like a prison, but I want a break in proof door. We'll get a good guard dog, I obviously have plenty of guns, I'm thinking of flood lights for the outside and a good security system. What other security measures do you suggest when building a house?
