    those plans are great. now you have a door that can not be busted in. what about the weak wall on eather side of that door?
    most walls have a piece of 1/2 plywood on the outside of the studs, some kind of siding over the plywood and 1/2 sheetrock on the inside of the studs. that is the weak point of any home.
    Buy a concrete home. then it would be worth reinforcing the doors.

    Please remember that a Claymore works wonders. All you need is a 1/2lb of your favorite powder,a container,,two handfulls of large BB`s and a detonator line. Also the 24hr number of a really good clean-up service. Problem Solved. Best of Luck.

    I think you oughta put ports on that door for observation and defense, or even perhaps steel jacketed ports with with some kind of motion sensing flame throwers. that'd definitely take care of your run of the mill walker and fry those super zombies ala '28 Days' types

    And now seeing that it has windows, replace the door with a solid or steel shell, open outwards, and reinforce the frame.

    Overall, much adoo about nothing.

    The wall frame should have king studs (double studded). Replace the door and frame with an exterior steel security door. Use longer screws for the hinges, install a dead bolt with a thicker security bolt, and a reinforced striker plate.

    ACE hardware has a metal brace that goes from handle to floor. Cheap, fast, fool proof, even kids can use it.

    Drop Bars

    These guys at Just In Case Defense, Security, Locks & Safety Systems, Salem, OR 97305 - index is where I bought my lock bars for my door.
    Works very well, it's all made out of 3/8" thick steel. What I liked about it was the fact that you now need a take to get through my doors, but the part they call the receivers are welded together and have a sealed end so when the door is getting slammed against the bar, it won't vibrate out of place and hit the floor.

    Only thing is that it is a heavy son of a gun. But at least it's not going anywhere

    Why don't you just use a proven solution?

    Welcome to Safe Homes International? Home of the Strikemaster II Pro!

    I have their products and they are very great, only thing is the install as not as easy as they would like to make you think. At least for me I had to sand and plane.

    Dig a 15' deep square hole just outside the door and rig a trap door that can be actuated from the inside. Zombies drop in then close the door. There aren't any laws against zombie imprisonment in your state are there?

    I believe section 364.22345 of the ZDA (Zombies with Disabilities Act) states that your Zombie containment system needs at least one of the following to be compliant. Wheel chair accessibility, and/or a step, stumble, drag-approved ramp.
    What about provisions for more rotund, weight challenged zombies?
    Zombies on Rascals?

    Think about the last time you were at Wal Mart. These will be the Zombies you need to prepare for.
