Neighbor Digs Massive Hole, Confuses Everyone - They're Jealous A Few Days Later

Home improvement, maintenance and DIY jobs can be monumental tasks for some people. For many homeowners, thinking of a renovation or home improvement idea is hard enough. Even when inspiration strikes, the majority of people are too lazy, busy or scared to make large scale changes to their home or backyard.

However, the same cannot be said of Wayne Martin who began a massive, time consuming and relatively inexpensive home improvement project in his own backyard. Mr. Martin spent days planning the logistics, budget and time constraints of his project. However, when Mr. Martin began his ingenious venture, he was harassed by disgruntled neighbors who thought he was ruining the value of neighboring properties. Luckily, these naysayers would be proven wrong on all accounts.

The first part of Mr. Martin’s project was one of the most exhausting as the man singlehandedly dug out a deep, rectangular shaped hole in the ground. Once the hole was completed and stable, Mr. Martin began the next part of his plan, transporting a large shipping container to his property and lowering it into the hole. Mr. Martin had bought the used shipping container at an outrageously cheap price. After the shipping container was secured in his backyard, Mr. Martin began a range of modifications, installing a sump pump, laying concrete steps, connecting ventilation and creating stable, safe roofing.

Finally, as the underground bunker began to take its final shape, Mr. Martin poured a layer of concrete over the top of the roofing framework and once set, laid out a layer of soil. The budget friendly project was finally complete after months of hard work and the neighbors were quick to admit that Mr. Martin’s idea was ingenious.

Mr. Martin is currently using the underground bunker as a wine cellar and a place to relax and reflect. Since Mr. Martin’s DIY project was shared on the internet, the man has been inundated with praise, offers for work and requests for building design specifications, showing the true power of stray ideas.
