A plumber who discovered a secret underground bunker in his garden has transformed it into a £1,000 toilet for his outdoor man cave.   

Sam, 34, who did not want to disclose his surname, found the bunker two years ago while digging up and levelling out his lawn of his home in Liversedge, West Yorkshire.

He immediately set to work on revamping the building into an outside toilet for his self-made man cave in his garden. The bunker now gets a lot of use and is often used by Sam and his friends and family.

Sam explained: ‘We originally found it in 2019 while I was digging up and levelling out the garden for a new lawn.

He has now transformed the hidden cellar into a toilet for his friends and family to use when they come over and spend time in the garden 

Sam said: ‘My spade went straight through the ground into a void and my father-in-law came up to have a look and we discovered the old barrelled roof and stone stairs’

‘My spade went straight through the ground into a void and my father-in-law came up to have a look and we discovered the old barrelled roof and stone stairs.

‘My father-in-law David suggested we keep digging – I didn’t really fancy it but I was so glad I listened to him.

‘It took a few days for us to dig it out and carry all the soil and bricks out by hand.

‘I thought it was an old cellar from an old house that had been knocked down but I’ve had people contacting me to say it looks like an old bunker.

Sam (pictured) said: ‘I’m a plumber so it made sense to make the most of the space and turn it into a toilet’


Sam first found the underground cellar in 2019 and immediately got to work on turning it into a toilet

He said: ‘I built it using most of the materials we dug out so in total, it only cost around £1,000 to build but it was well worth it’

‘I’m a plumber so it made sense to make the most of the space and turn it into a toilet.

‘I’ve got a nice, big garden and a man cave bar so it’s good for entertaining and this way, my friends don’t have to use the house!
