With all things considered, it's probably time you invested in something that'll help see you through the impending end of days - so we've assembled a list of options, home improvements and installations you might want to consider.
The Atlas Galvanized Corrugated Pipe survival shelter
Florida-based survival specialists Atlas will install a custom survival shelter under your home to the tune of $48,000 (£32,000) - and that's for a small model.
This 10-foot by 51-foot shelter includes...
...an escape hatch - from which to take out those pesky zombie forces/Communists/next door neighbours...
...a spacious, comfortable interior, complete with living room...
...we're not sure if she comes with the shelter...
...there's also room for a washer and drier, because you'll want to look your best when the end of human history comes calling.
UK group Bunker Shield will build you one of these earth-covered shelters for only £8,000!
Or how about this communal bunker design - built for purpose, with prices ranging from £51,700.00 - £125,000.
It could even increase the value of your existing property by four percent!
And you're going to want one if you live in any of the following UK target areas.
According to Bunker Shield, this is a 'conservative' list.
Temet LSS-80 Protection System
Should to be fortunate enough not to have been taken out by the blast of the nuclear impact, you'll want a Temet LSS-80 protection tent in your office.
Packing away into a small crate, this tent provides safe protected space for a maximum of six persons for an extended period of time. Quite what you do after that is beyond us...
Zombie Fortification Cabin
In addition to their regular log cabins and sheds, Tiger Log Cabins have this little beauty - the Zombie Fortification Cabin.
Measuring a sizeable 44 by 30 feet, the ZFC-1 is built to survive and undead army: protected by re-enforced slit windows, strengthened walls and doors and a barbed wire surround, it features an upper deck on the roof of the main building to give an overview of any shuffling uprising.
