We’ve all thought about it before, we’ve all come up with a brilliant plan on what to do if the apocalypse hit or if your entire area was obliterated. What about nuclear attacks that were so frightful in the 50’s prompting underground shelters? Most people ponder what they would do if disaster struck in an instant. There are others who call themselves “preppers” and have devoted their lives to preparing for such an event. They refer to the unknown event as WSHTF which breaks down to “when sh*t hits the fan”. It has become a very popular way of life these days that teaches self-reliance and sustainability without modern conveniences like the internet or grocery stores. Some people have built bunkers in the hills or even purchased abandoned missile silos to convert to their safe haven or bug out location. Not everyone believes that the world as we know it will end anytime soon but there are those who say it is better to be prepared than not. If nothing else it is a productive hobby that can teach you valuable life lessons. Some of these bunkers are not much more than a hole in the ground while others are incredibly lavish palaces that you would think an evil villain would live in. Well Colin Furze, a very popular YouTuber, teamed up with a UK-based cable channel called Sky 1 to build his ideal place to take shelter in case of the apocalypse. It was all done for a segment called You Me and the Apocalypse. Colin was given the task to build a shelter that would house him knowing that the world would end in 34 days. He decided to build himself an underground apocalypse bunker and let’s just say, it is far from ordinary. Take a look at the entire build below.
Meet Colin Furze, he’s a very entertaining guy who hosts a YouTube channel and was given the task to build the ultimate underground apocalypse bunker.
Here is his very detailed drawing of his vision. This is the start of what would protect him, and the hairless cat all villains have, until disaster cleared.
Colin lives in the UK and decided that his backyard would be a suitable place for his underground apocalypse bunker. It would be close to home and he wouldn’t have to travel far to safety.
His backyard is pretty big so there is plenty of room to work with. What a beautiful view to boot!
He had an old shed in the corner of his yard that had to go. First things first, gone with the roof.
And down with the walls! Demolition is usually the funnest part of any construction job.
The dinosaur was a vital piece of his yard art so he had to put it in an optimal place to instill terror into the minds of any intruders. On top of the play set, looking over the fence, should work.
With the yard clear, the fence was removed and the dimensions were drawn onto the lawn.
It was time to bring in the heavy equipment and clear out any debris.
You can’t have an underground apocalypse bunker unless it’s underground. Time to start digging! He needed to dig about 12 feet down to fulfill his vision.
