Taking advantage of our never-ending cultural obsession with all things undead, a British company is offering buyers the chance to own what it’s calling, as UPI points out, the “world’s first and only certified zombie-proof cabin.”

The Zombie Fortification Cabin, or ZFC-1, by Tiger Log Cabins is priced from $133,100 (including assembly) and comes complete with an impressive array of features: reinforced slit windows, walls and doors; barbed wire surround; an upper viewing deck and escape hatch; and an enclosed garden. And with arsenal storage, a gym and lounge area—including a plasma TV, XBox and turntables—the cabin is equal parts business and pleasure.

Cool extras such as water cannons, flame throwers, solar panels and riot protection gear are also available at a premium, and every ZFC-1 comes with a 10-year, anti-zombie guarantee. (Though, of course, “medical evidence of the presence of a real zombie” is required to make a claim.)

The kit home is already generating some early buzz, with high-profile customers singing its praises with breathless, five-star reviews. Zombie aficionado Robert Neville writes:

“The cabin is impenetrable—no zombie will ever be able to break in to this building. Having already been impressed with the build quality, I was blown away by what I found on the inside. A living area, wash facilities, and a room to stock my weapons. Not only am I now prepared for the zombie apocalypse, I’m looking forward to it!”

However, not everyone is a fan of the cabin’s unyielding strength. Here‘s Roger Rotter the Zombie’s take:

“I officially HATE this zombie proof log cabin!! Having roamed our way through the land mines, in just about one piece, a cluster of us avoided the flamethrowers and made it to the walls. No matter what we tried (eating through the walls, climbing to the roof, etc.) we just couldn’t break in. Unfortunately, as time wore on it became obvious this was a lost cause and some 28 days later we gave up. I have been forced therefore to rate this product 1 out of 5—to clear up any confusion this is NOT suitable for zombies!!!”
