WTF!…If you want to survive an apocalypse then pyramid is the house to be in

If you want to survive an apocalyptic situation as in a tsunami and all then Korvelo is promising you complete safety with this pyramid home. According to site , “The pyramid will be the best structure to survive a massive flood or tsunami because it has living space as high as 40 feet above ground” The pyramid can’t be tipped over by a massive wave either. And, if built in conjunction with a bunker underneath, “it will be the ideal place to ride a 2012 scenario or the great tribulation of the Bible. It can survive an assault by a small-armed force, not to mention it being the ideal place to invite friends over to enjoy the wonderful force of nature in tornadoes and hurricanes in a place that is completely safe”. Not to forget, it is also a fire, weather and earthquake home. It sounds like a joke right? If we are to believe them, then this single house can do all that.

It has all the amenities of a modern house. As shown, it has five bedrooms and six bathrooms. Fourth and fifth floor includes balcony overlooking family room. The foundation, exterior walls and floors are all made in solid concrete and could also be made in steel. It has 3 garages, which are completely separated from each other. The house also has four cameras, four light covers and four remote control weapons. Its like a complete battle ground (as if the third world war had to be fought here).

Its angled sides give you an ideal opportunity to install solar panels. Windows will also have exterior solid shutters with security bars, or a louver type shutter, not needing security bars. “We have an exclusive electric powered louver window shutter that allows light to go through”. It will also protect you against intruders and bullets. Shutters will also automatically shut down, as the alarm goes off.

Korvelo also gives you the possibility to install bullet proof glass. Doors will be made of ¼ inch steel to the minimum. The pyramid could be built uncapped with a 3rd floor only to a height of approximately 34 feet with a balcony on top and a possible helipad. There are lot of things that I have missed, so kindly track back to indulge. I really don’t know, to believe or no, but it definitely sounds to be a great vision.

In 2022 they have added new house blueprints. Not only you have house plans for the Pyramid, but also for the Dome and the Sphere.

Recommended Articles

We have some articles that I would like to recommend to the readers.

Foundation Repair And Maintenance

We have described here the type of foundations, what is a foundation inspection and what should be included in a good foundation inspection checklist. We can discover problems in the foundation to make us ask ourselves if it is safe to live in a house with foundation problems and what entails a foundation repair, if it is covered by homeowners insurance and its costs.

To repair a foundation, the service provider requires an underpinning system using piers: push piers vs helical piers where helical piers are preferable for residential real estate objects, despite their costs. Also when you compare helical piers with concrete footings, we can determine that helical piers are more cost-efficient than concrete footings, in my opinion.

We have water in the crawlspace: I explain what to do when the crawlspace is flooded, if it is normal to have water in the crawlspace after a heavy rain, and the importance to perform a crawlspace waterproofing thereafter, normally by installing a vapor barrier.

I describe how to improve the air quality in the crawlspace and to accomplish this, I am reluctant to use lime powder in this article, where I explain the pros and cons, as I would be using lime powder only to avoid the dangers of raw sewage under house.

We discuss the sill plate replacement cost and how to avoid the outdoor sump pump freezing, because it happened to me once.

There are always new methods for repairing foundations. One of them that we investigate here is the Powerbrace foundation repair method.

Animals can be a problem when they live near the foundation: In the following articles we describe how to remove them and how to prevent them from digging and burrowing. The articles are about animals digging holes around the foundation or when they are burrowing below concrete, below a concrete slab, or between gaps in concrete footings, for example.

In regards to basements, I describe how to solve the hydrostatic pressure in the basement. I provide to you some reasons of why we will need a certified specialist to deal with a risky sewage backup in the basement because bacteria survives a long time in a contaminated sewage and also we discuss how to deal with a basement drain backing up in general and when it happens when flushing the toilet, something that is not a DYI project at all.

Concrete

I explain here the process of concrete lifting or concrete raising, that can be done through mudjacking or slabjacking. We recommend the latter, which injects polyurethane foam.

Framing

There are some interesting articles here, in this Framing category. I refer to sistering floor joists, as a methodology to reinforce existing floor joists with some emphasis on sistering 2x6 floor joists or sistering with 2x8 instead, and about the building code for sistering joists, for sistering rafters, and the code for notching floor joists.

Water Heaters

About water heaters, we have a complete guide about water heater types and their installation requirements, about power vent water heaters, and venting in tankless devices, and I also explain in detail the difference between a mobile home water heater and a standard water heater. I also describe in detail how to remove the heating element without an element wrench using just a socket, and how to protect your water heater against the effects of hard water, and how to fix leaking.

We have some few reviews when a water heater falls into our hands, such as the Titan product portfolio, Navien lineup, the Titan N-160 reviews, the most praised by our readers, and the Rinnai R94LSi .

I study several water heater capacities and tested 20-gallon water heater units, and a comparison between point of use and tankless water heaters.

We open a tankless water heater to show how does it look like inside a tankless water heater.

After the lifecycle of the water heater is over, I reveal to you different options to proceed with its disposal.
