Like others, My house configuration does not allow for easily collecting us in one defensible place. And so we have bedroom based defense. Whether that's a good or bad plan in the professional view of things - a plan is better than no plan.
Both used bedrooms have avenues of escape through egress windows, which are not in direct line of the door, and both bedrooms have defensive weapons in them.
My wife and child have been taught to keep calm and let whoever grab stuff in the house, but that ends at the bedroom door. They have been taught to take cover and be prepared. They have also been taught to not simply open fire as soon as the door opens - just in case it's one of us coming through!
