Elizabeth Strutton showed her creativity by turning an old abandoned bunker into something so mesmerizing, you won't believe the before and after photos are of the same place.
Have a look,
This shelter was built sometime around 1942, to save people from bomb blasts, but after the purpose was served it was abandoned. The bunker started to deteriorate and over the years it has worsened.
Elizabeth Strutton bought the shelter and the surrounding area for about $200,000.
The decision for buying the bunker was not easy for her, given the economic crisis she was in. But the transformation turned out to be a blessing for her.
We can clearly see the efforts she has put in to renovate the bunker.
Though the layout has not been changed. She had made sure the ventilation system and the water drainage pipes have been completely modernised.
She has used a highly original solution to illuminate the rooms inside the bunker. Purpose-built sun tubes that protrude through the ceiling of the bunker.
You can't believe this is the same old bunker that you saw in the first photo.
This three bedroom bangalow comes with two bathrooms, a spacious kitchen and a living room.
Now she feels that she lives in the best place in the world and we couldn't agree more.
In fact who wouldn't be.
Overcoming all the obstacles, with just a little bit of imagination and creativity, and loads and loads of positivity, she converted this old bunker into an actual house.
