No Zombies at the mine !

I started playing DayZ lately ; it's kind of a trade off........all the good stuff is in populated areas but then that's where most of the zombies are too. I think if you had enough food and water an old abandoned mine settlement would be a good safe place to build a base. I wanted to try a concept......but keeping in mind that it had to be done in less than a day to be on pace with normal speed / unfortunately I have no libraries of photos or textures to "bash" so I just went at it on a few layers and an ordinary basic brush.
