This Guy Dug A Huge Hole In His Backyard, What He Created Will AMAZE You.

Maybe he was in the market for an end-of-the-world panic room, or maybe he just wants a cool place to store his wine: Either way, Wayne Martin's DIY project serves its purpose.

Martin began digging a massive hole in his backyard, much to the chagrin of his confused neighbors. Once construction began, though, it was clear that Martin had a much bigger idea in his mind than anyone could have bargained for. In these photos, you see Martin's DIY project from start to finish, and the final product is absolutely amazing. Who knew you could do so much with a shipping container and several inches of concrete? See the images and video of Martin's project below.

Martin purchased a 20-foot shipping container off of the internet.

First, he sealed off the double doors and installed a swinging door on the opposite side.

He dug a hole deeper than the height of the container, adding a six-inch layer of peat gravel at the bottom.

Then, he hired a septic tank company to lift and place the container in the hole.

As you can see, he's left space around all sides of the container.
