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

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.

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.

There's also a hole that will house a sump pump.

Next, he installed a concrete staircase leading out of the space.

Beams were also installed, level with the stairs and the top of the container.

More lumber framework was added to support the roof.

To cover the entire thing, he used heavy, corrugated metal.

He left an opening over the stairs and surrounded it with rebar.

Cinderblocks were laid on top and filled in with more concrete.

Two 12-inch air vents were installed at the front and back, along with some PVC piping for utilities.

Then, it was time to start pouring the concrete.

Six inches of concrete, in fact -- poured over the metal and rebar.

More blocks were then added to build up the entrance.

All of it was stabilized with temporary support.

To cover it, he used a high quality soil.

Then came the fun part: Filling the shelter with apocalypse must-haves -- including lots and lots of wine.

All in all, not a bad place to sit and wait for the world to end, don't you think?
