Comic book artist Tyler Kirkham is a big fan of the game Elder Scrolls. He was inspired to recreate that world in the basement of his home in Salt Lake City. Over time, he’s spent $50,000 to make it perfect.
Despite wife Jill’s dreams of a swimming pool in the garden, Tyler Kirkham, 32, couldn’t be swayed from his vision based on The Elder Scrolls series of fantasy games, which features a $15,000 bathroom with its own waterfall and a secret door resembling a bookcase, activated by pulling one of the books. Alongside suits of armour, a crossbow and an alchemy lab full of medieval potions, the space features a $15,000 bathroom with its own waterfall and ivy-covered rock-face. He also fitted a $250 Italian crossbow, $8,000-worth of stone and masonry, stained flooring costing $3,000, suits of armour, an alchemy lab full of medieval potions, a medieval helmet worth $100 and a $20,000 home cinema for playing the games on a large screen.
I can see the future news stories now: “Neither Tyler nor his brother were ever seen again.” But can you blame them for wanting to stay down there? -via Geeks Are Sexy
