This steampunk enthusiast created his own retro-submarine themed steampunk house.Â While the look of steampunk is pretty neat, this house might have gone too far by recreating a shipwrecked submarine. The engineer from Canterbury, New Zealand themed his playroom with his submarine shipwrecked on a deserted island.
Built at an absurd cost of $100,000, the 12-metre by 5.5m personal den definately resembles a rusting interior of a submarine (it better for that price). Complete with a working periscope and touches of â€˜plutonium-leakingâ€™ torpedoes. Custom wood MDF was sprayed with concrete and touched up to appear like rusting steel beams. Melted plastic sheets gave the look of bent steel torn apart when the submarine ran aground. Sound effects come from hidden speakers playing sonar and ocean sounds in the background.
But beyond the effects, the room also houses reclining chairs, a three-meter big-screen TV and a top-notch surround-sound system. A stocked bar made from materials likely to be found on an island completes the high living frills.
