My stockpile room!

I totally forgot to take a photo when it was empty. I already have my freezer in there and I have a small shelf in there. My husband is getting me a really tall one later in the week from helping someone move. I knew my utility room was small , but even without the washer and dryer in it , it is VERY SMALL!! I was hoping I could also make this room into a safe room, but there is no way. It could be a safe room for weather related things, like if there is a tornado, but for any length of time It would not work at all!!

A Safe Room

A safe room is a room in your house that would be the safest place in your home where you can go to quickly and take shelter. It is great to have one in case of a tornado, bomb attack, hurricane, or any other disaster.
Choose a place in your basement, garage, or a room in your house that has no windows and where you can seal off the door way with plastic and duct tape if you need to.
When you are preparing your safe room think of everything. Think about food, water, warmth, communication, sanitation, ventilation, medical supplies, and even ways to keep everyone entertained.
Have you safe room equipped with enough stuff to sustain you and your family for up to 2 weeks. Make sure that you have a lot of canned food that can be eaten right out of the can cold. You most likely will not be able to cook in your safe room.
Have a radio on hand with plenty of batteries or have a hand crank powered radio. I have a few of them and they are life savers. Plus I do not have to worry about batteries and use the money that I might use on batteries on other items that I want to stockpile, like food!! But, you have to have a good radio in your safe room. It might be your only way to know what is going on in the outside world , if you are in your safe room for any length of time.
Your safe room would also be a great place to store your items that you have been stockpiling. This way of there is an emergency you can go into your safe room and be able to stay safe. (Don't forget weapons, too!)

A Stockpile Room -- Finally!!

I have a utility room that is much too small right now with my washer and dryer in it, but this weekend our washer and dryer will be gone so I will now have a room to be just for my stockpile!! I cannot wait. My husband is going to have to make us some shelves or I will buy some cheap ones and it will be just for me to stock full of food and any other item that we want to stockpile. I will take photos as soon as it is empty and then as I fill it. I will miss my washer and dryer , but since we are in a small house, I will love having the space for a bigger stockpile.

Build A Greenhouse

I have been wanting one of these for a long time. I always thought that I would need a lot of money or space to have one though. So I was looking around online to see some ideas and I came across this video that shows how to make one for less than $25.00 and it is small enough to fit in my small yard, but big enough to be able to hold what I want to grow.
