When comic book artist Tyler Kirkham spent $50,000 transforming his basement into an homage to a favorite game series, the result was a custom-made masonry masterpiece. Recently, The Escapist profiled the project designed to honor Kirkham's love of the Elder Scrolls games. According to writer Stew Shearer:
Included in the 1,500 square foot basement is a secret doorway hidden behind a bookshelf, a collection of fantasy armor and weaponry and a $15,000 bathroom complete with ivy-covered stone walls and a waterfall. The basement's stained floors additionally cost $3,000 while its extensive masonry and custom stonework cost more than $8,000. Kirkham used screenshots from the games to help make the basement as accurate to their world as possible.
