Man Makes Self-Isolation Bunker With Sky, Games Consoles And A Bed

Man Makes Self-Isolation Bunker With Sky, Games Consoles And A Bed

Well someone obviously got the memo that the rest of us didn't - a man has been unbelievably prepared for self-isolation for the past five years after building himself a self-isolation bunker in his back garden.

Inventor and YouTuber Colin Furze made the underground steel structure back in 2015 and it comes complete with Sky TV, a bed and a drum kit.

The amazing space looks better than my flat and comes complete with a kitchen, which has a microwave, sink and is all stocked up with tinned and dried food - pre-stockpiling days.

The bunker also has its own generator for electricity, meaning he can enjoy all the entertainment on offer, with a TV, Sky box and a selection of gaming consoles all at his disposal.

And if all that isn't enough for him, he's even put a drum kit down there in case he gets bored as well as a bed. Getting extremely serious, he even has a gas mask on the nearby wall. Let's hope it doesn't get that far.

The 40-year-old is renowned for his inventions, which also include the world's fastest mobility scooter and a drive-able hot tub car.

Speaking about his self-isolation area, he said it was the 'ultimate underground apocalyptic bunker'. Well, that's a bit much isn't it.

He added: "After five years it is just as solid as the day it was built. I encourage anyone, if you have the space and the money, to build one as it's a fantastic room to have, especially with the way things are in the world at the moment, I'm pretty glad I've got it."

Bet you are.

And in the face of adversity, what do the general public do better than make sure they have a safe space to have a bevvy.

Take, for example, Steve Heming, a freight forwarder, from Bexley. On realising his partner Madeleine Markey was feeling the strain of being cooped up inside, like many of us are - he decided to take matters into his own hands, creating the 'Isolation Inn' in their house.

What a keeper.

Steve told LADbible: "My fiancée has been feeling a bit down with everything going on, and as I could not cheer her up by taking her to the pub, I thought I would bring the pub to her.

"So I made the sign and we ordered the beers."

Now, to the untrained eye it MIGHT look like bottles of beer on a table, but in these times, we have to use our imagination a bit, don't we?

Great idea, Steve.
