There was a thread on here a while back, and I'm gonna stand by that one, that says to head to the library. Not only are most libraries solidly
built, with many having concrete walls, they also have books for information and entertainment as well as having maps of the area for the most part. I
also feel the need to point out that unlike super stores, libraries aren't raided. They also tend to have heavy wooden doors, and while many don't
consider it now, those doors would be easy to barricade. Just don't piss off the librarians, if there are any there.
Also, in the direction of fireplaces, as mentioned earlier, use those only if you must, they lower the temperature in the surrounding rooms, so you
would need a functioning fireplace in every room, with a fire going to warm a building that way, which uses a huge amount of wood. Ideally you want
access to a wood burning stove, which not only heats more efficiently it can be used as a stove to cook on, if power is out.
