    For me personally, I have 3 kids and would not fall back into my bedroom until I know they are clear. My defensive spot is at the top of the stairs leading to the second floor where the bedrooms are located. I have a very good angle that provides me cover and allows me to see much of the downstairs. There is only one way up and it is 4 feet wide. May God have mercy on anyone who tries to cross that threshold uninvited.

    Still, it is an interesting idea. I would like to see pictures if you ever build a model. Not sure my wife's fashion sense would approve, but I still think it is interesting.

    Welcome from GA!

    Welcome from GA!
    I agree with you that protecting the kids is the most important thing.

    I trained my kids what to do in the case of a fire.

    Everyone should run to the protected corner if an intruder comes in.

    In your case, the defensive setup could be at the top of the stairs.

    Without the steel, an armed attacker could fire back and penetrate the usual house construction.

    The situation that you described would seem normal.

    However, if an attacker saw a barrel sticking out of a slit in steel panels, he would leave a slippery brown trail behind him as he flees your house.


    Also, once behind the bullet resistant barrier (say level 3), there could be an escape hatch as well as cell phones, sirens, gas dispensers, etc.

    My concept is that a "safe" room looks to the attacker like a challenge to solve, much like a money safe.

    A defensive angled shield that shoots back becomes a very formidable opponent.

    When the hinged steel doors are flat against the walls, they could have a wood face with pictures, wallpaper, etc. and not look too shabby.
