This one just came to me and I had a look to see if it was anywhere around already. New Homes Estate. Some property developer was in the middle of creating a lovely tract of new luxury homes, roads, school, playground, church etc but the Zombie Apocalypse hit mid-development. So it's all unfinished, houses are just shells, no doors or windows, roads peter out into sand and sub-grade, lots of wood piles around, a few bits of earth moving equipment, trenches, pipes, all the usual stuff you find on a building site and plenty of cones and hard hats lying about too. Would make for a slight change from "Here's another town, just like the last one, except over here."

Don't know if this has been mentioned else where, but I like it! The more differences in buildings the better.

I like it. I think if implemented, especially on a large scale, there needs to be a variety of building/construction stages so they're not all just "framed" structures.
  • Cleared & graded areas, pinned for digging foundation pour site
  • Holes/trenches in the ground for foundation pours
  • Concrete slabs with pipe fittings coming through
  • Bare framing walls with & without roof trusses (or ceiling/floor trusses for multi-level structures)
  • Partially and/or fully applied exterior plywood
  • Partially and/or fully roofed
  • Partially and/or fully outfitted with windows
  • Partially and/or fully applied exterior siding
  • Rough plumbing, electrical, HVAC
  • Partially and/or fully insulated
  • Partial and/or full sheetrock interior
  • Doors & full/partial trim
  • Cabinets
  • Partially and/or fully painted interior walls
  • Partially and/or fully set with flooring & counter tops
  • Appliances, fixtures, etc. added
  • Driveway & concrete (walkways and such)
  • Decks (if applicable)
  • Fences (if applicable)
  • Landscaping (trees, grass, flowers, etc.)

Perhaps that's too much variety, but you get the idea.

What? No. We can't stop here. This is bat country.
I am not sure if I have heard this idea yet (Theirs loads on the forum now :D)... I do like this alot including the variety of buildings, this would be a great place to scavenge for things and also serve as a reminder of times gone by.

I love the Idea of construction sites such as new residential buildings half developed. Would be a great source for brick, block, mortar, plywood, nails, tools and ect. +1

Apart from the resources and variety of buildings mentioned in above posts.

I didn't intitialy think about how depending on the site it may be a sutible living area, with already erected construction development fences/walls/barriers, heavy equipment lying around i.e construction vehicles and if the building is big enough a construction elevevator.
