A Leeds-based shed manufacturer is aiming to become the first in the world to build a real life ‘zombie proof cabin’.

Tiger Sheds http://www.tigersheds.com has launched a crowdfunding page - http://tinyurl.com/q5ue8uo - in a bid to raise £120,000 to make the dream a reality in time for Hallowe’en.

The Zombie Fortification Cabin (ZFC-1) comes with reinforced slit windows, living area with TV and Xbox, a garden section to grow vegetables, not to mention barbed wire defences.

Jack Sutcliffe from Tiger Sheds commented: “Everyone thinks they have what it takes to survive the zombie apocalypse, so we did our best to create a fortress to keep the ‘walkers’ out. We were thrilled with the response to it last year and we hope people get on board to make it happen. After all, we might need it one day.”

The firm said it had an “overwhelming public response when designs were made public last year”.

Tiger Sheds has partnered with Zombie Infection, the UK’s most popular zombie survival experience provider, to make sure this super shed is kitted out with all the best zombie prevention equipment and all the supplies needed to keep you going after the apocalypse.

The cabin is planned to be constructed at one of the ‘zombie Infection locations’, either based at the abandoned Stanley Tools factory in Sheffield or within the site in the spooky Sherwood Forest in Nottingham. If the campaign is successful, the building will provide a safe haven for fanatics of the undead at the city’s popular Zombie Infection event space.

Chris Baker from Zombie Infection said: “We’re delighted to be teaming up with Tiger Sheds for this project. We want to offer our customers as realistic experience as possible and the Zombie Fortification Cabin would offer a great addition to our immersive experience.”
