Prepper’s Home Defense and Projects
Prepper’s Guide to Home Defense: Defend Your Home and Maintain Security in Dire Situations
Home defense isn’t a joke. With over three and a half million home invasions per year, an intruder could enter your home at any time—day or night. The media is rife with stories of robbery, home invasion, and sexual assaults. It isn’t a case of fear mongering, but simply awareness.
In most cases, home invaders don’t even know their target. But their target isn’t completely random; targets are chosen due to several key features of their home. In this book, we’ll show you how you can scare home invaders away before they can ever harm you or your family.
We’ll also discuss passive ways to protect yourself—the construction of home defenses that keep burglars out and slow them down. Whether you’re looking for ways to protect yourself from the common criminal elements or if you’re looking to protect yourself in worst case, collapse of civilization scenarios, we have you covered; we believe everyone has their own level of preparation, and we’ll help get your house defense ready regardless of your end goal.
We also know that not all people are the same. Most home defense guides out there treat the reader as though they live in a quaint suburban home with all the money in the world—that isn’t true for most people, and it certainly isn’t true for the author. We’ll describe ways to protect yourself regardless of your situation. Country homes, suburban homes, or urban apartments all have different needs for home defense, and we’ll cover them all.

DIY Prepper’s Projects: A One-Project-a-Week Guide to Help You Prepare for an Emergency
Being prepared isn’t about being scared or paranoid—it’s about safety. It’s about having the ability to protect your family and being able to weather any storm, no matter how tough. In today’s modern age, people expect clean food on shelves and drinkable water from taps. But that hasn’t always been the case, and it won’t always be the case. Civil unrest or natural disaster could bring your city or state’s infrastructure crashing down around your eyes. When there’s no food and the water stops flowing, when your lights flicker out, will you be prepared?
This book is a six-month project guide for preparing your home. It’s a great resource for beginner’s unsure of how to start preparing their home, as well offering direction to more advanced prepper’s who don’t know where to go from their current position.
This guide is also a fun, DIY book—if you like tinkering or making things, we’ve got 24 ideas for you to try out whether you believe in being prepared or not. From bio-filters to distilleries, gravity fed irrigation systems to hand pumps made from scratch—this book sets out one project a week, four projects a month, for a total of 24 across a period of six months.
Each chapter correlates to a month and has some common theme—water management, gardening, free (or cheap) energy, wilderness survival, and home construction are just some of the themes covered in this book.
We’ve also taken the time to interconnect projects when we can so that you’re not left with twenty-four separate projects but rather several large-scale project built piece by piece.
