Not in a modern fixed house, perhaps. In a future mobile home I just start up the engine and trundle off towards the next city. If I get stuck in a traffic queue I set up my radar-guided hypervelocity railguns, dial up Nuke-The-Bastards, Inc and pledge $1000 for the destruction of the capital city of whichever country attacked us, then sit back and watch the fireworks.
