In a recent interview, actor Josh Duhamel (“Transformers”) revealed that he has turned into a “doomsday prepper,” having built a secluded ranch in North Dakota where his family might live “if s*** hits the fan” in the city of Los Angeles.
According to Duhamel, 50, the enormous complex once just consisted of a modest hut with no power or running water, but everything has since changed.
“It all began with a single little cottage in the woods with no water or power. We’d go, but we didn’t intend to spend more than a day or two. The mice had taken control, as was evident. It was revolting,” Duhamel said, adding that after learning that the house next door was up for sale, everything drastically altered.
He remarked, “I purchased it for almost nothing; this lovely tiny perfect cottage on the sea. I had 54 acres there all of a sudden. So I had two cottages, one of which had neither water or power. They are both quite little, yet they both now have wells and electricity. We molded the landscape. We carved out pathways through it. Actually, I’m cultivating crops there now.”
