    with the cellar, there is usually only one way out, while upstairs will probably have windows.

      FALSE: International Residential Code (IRC) 2000 requires accessible egress windows to be built below grade on all modern residential construction.

      It's simple. You jump out the window to commit suicide rather than getting eaten alive. Also, cellers are dark and if its the apocalypse the power could be completely off :P (simply it would be creepy as hell)

      Clearly the bodies would start to pile up blocking the entrance to the second floor as you would throw things at them... whereas if the bodies pile up in the cellar and the zombies have surrounded the house...

      Farmhouses are very rickety and unstable. Knock out that bitch stairway and nail down some boards. Still got your nail gun? Hammer out some rounds through the tiny crack and nail it back up.

      actually diamond, that's not true, in order to be a legal bedroom or residence yes, it requires egress windows. Just a generic unfinished cellar doesn't even need any windows, and if it has them, they are usually small and not big enough to actually get out of, plus you would have to crawl out of them and leave yourself vulnerable.

      Here's an idea, Push the racks of the barrels to the door of the cellar, Plus Zombies don't have the brains to open doors, Have a few celebratory drinks, wait out the herd, Go upstairs when they're gone, move to somewhere safer.

    need i remind you that in "Night of the Living Dead" the only survivor was in the basement. In most cases, the zombies would forget your there and move away.

      Also being underground will mostly if not completely mask your scent. Besides, it doesn't say you can't improvise weapons. Smash some wine bottles or something.

      Was the first survivor of a zombie movie not a black man on the second floor. It is also advised to destroy the stairs in many scenarios. Furthermore, you would have the upper hand

      Maybe, or they could break through the window. But you could probably board it up, if you're fast enough.

      A zombie relies on all 5 senses equally. The human smell can linger in an area for quite some time. Even I you had storm doors, you are looking at basic suffocation due to lack of oxygen. Considering you are breathing out carbon-dioxide that is.

      @nowhereman136 being UNDER the zombies would not block your scent and they would most likely not forget you're there. also by that logic if u were upstairs they could also forget you're there @Patrick exactly you could destroy the stairs! and you WOULD have the *upper* hand, literally XD

    Having the high ground is a strategical advantage. And you can push them down the stairs, knocking down the rest down too.

      in every battle high ground=advantage so in any scenario I can think of I would rather go up than down where they both are the same for the rest.

    Cellars dont have dirt walls they are usually pretty thick with concrete so i doubt you'd be able to dig your way out. Assuming theres a bunch of zombies just in your barn and around the front then at least you could break out of the 2nd floor walls which are made of wood and jump down and run.

    It would take some time for the zombies to climb up the stairs than tumble down. I'd just wait for them to be outside my door then jump out and run for it. It would be a surefire way to survive.

    Doubt zombies would have the intelligence to get into the cellar, Just sit it out a few day and they will forget. And the cellar is probably more sound proof.
