Yeah, that was sort of my thinking in putting one by the exterior door (I've got a walk-out basement) and at the stairs.  I actually have several more, as there was a recall of Kidde extinguishers, and by mistake they sent me 8 new ones instead of just 4.  I offered to send 4 back if they would pay shipping and they said just keep them.

Several years ago American Woodworker magazine published a plan to build your own flammable storage cabinet out of 1" plywood.

I believe the plans are still available from Popular woodworking, but I haven't looked in a while. I built a smaller version of this for my shop that's held up pretty well over the last 9 or 10 years...
