In an extreme SHTF Situation/PAW I'd want : Slightly overgrown grass (not so much where someone could actually use it as concealment though) and maybe a couple of abandoned burnt out cars in front of the house flush with the porch (more cover for us inside besides what I'd improvise along the insid...
