Starting To Shape Up With Rebar
Now it was time to prepare for the concrete, which you’ll soon see. Wayne put up corrugated sheet metal over the top of the container, making sure they covered the entire hole. Next, Wayne took the rebar poles and welded them to the top of the entrance over the I-beams. After that, he put cinder blocks over the rebar and filled them with concrete to seal the entryway up nice and tight. The metal needed some support, so Wayne braced the metal from underneath using wood beams.
Pour Some Concrete In
Finally, it was time to make it a permanent structure. Wayne needed to pour six inches of reinforced concrete on top of the metal, so he needed to hire a team for this part. Before the concrete was poured, Wayne added in two 12-inch PVC air vents down into the container. He also added some smaller PVC pumps so he could run utilities in. No one wants to be in a hole without air or light! Have you figured out what Wayne was doing with this huge shipping container in a hole? Keep on clicking to find out the point of all of this.
Almost Done With Everything
Did you guess? The structure is definitely starting to look more stable, that’s for sure. Wayne’s project most likely wouldn’t survive a nuclear attack, but it would most certainly protect someone from any elements, or nosy people. It’s nice to have some spare room in your house to do whatever you’d like with, but we have a few ideas of what we would want to do with a bunker underground. Hidden library? Underground movie theater? You’re so close to finding out what Wayne built! Keep reading!
Imagine What His Neighbors Are Thinking
There’s no more hole! Once the concrete was settled, Wayne used cinder blocks to build the entrance up to the ground level. Next, Wayne used a backhoe and good soil to fill in the area above the hole. Wayne says it’s important to use good soil because he thinks it would be perfect to plant some trees around the underground shelter. This room would be perfect if you needed a bit of privacy. It’s almost done, only a few more steps left!
Project Status: Complete
Before we can find out what Wayne has been up to this whole time, he has to make sure to clean up the mess. So he’s got to take out all of the temporary wood supports that were put under the metal and concrete. Now’s the time to do all of the wiring and plumbing, as well. Finally, it’s all finished! It’s time to reveal the point for all of Wayne’s extremely hard work. Are you ready for it?
A Room For Collecting
It would appear that our friend Wayne likes his wine! As soon as Wayne finished the basic structure he made the room the perfect space to keep his wine collection, as well as the all of the equipment to make his own! The room comes complete with wine racks, an industrial sink, a TV, and carboys, the huge jugs you see on the left that are used for making cider, beer, and more. We think it looks fantastic, but to Wayne, this isn’t the only option!
This Could All Be Yours
Wayne wanted to share how he created an underground room, so he left instructions on his YouTube channel, where you can also hear Wayne sing country songs and talk about doomsday prepping. Wayne says the room can be anything you’d like it to be! It’s a rather large project, but Wayne did an excellent job completing it. It looks professionally done and clean! Do you know what you would want to do with a room like this? Is anything stopping you from digging a massive hole in your backyard? All you need are Wayne’s instruction, roughly $13k, and some creativity, and you could have your very own hidden room! If there’s nothing in your way, the neighbors will be fine with it, you should just go for it!
