This news arrived just in time for father's day!

A lot of people like The Elder Scrolls, but not everyone would be willing or able to spend tens of thousands on a renovation project to turn their basement into something that looks like it's pulled right out of the video game franchise. But that's exactly what DC Comics artist Tyler Kirkham did.

Kirkham spent $50,000 to convert the basement in his Kaysville, Utah home into a 1,500-square foot tribute to the fantasy series.

Per a report from Barcroft.tv, the basement contains the following:

Secret door, activated by pulling on a book from a bookcase
Medieval-style sparring area
Crossbows
Distressed stone walls
Various helmets and horns
A bathroom with its own waterfall and rock face covered in ivy
$20,000 "home cinema" (for playing Skyrim, probably)

Looking ahead, Kirkham said he has further expansion plans. One idea he's considering is a wine cellar, while he's also thinking about a children's play area for his one-year-old son.

When I saw the thread title "Father Spends $50,000 on Stunning Elder Scrolls Basement!", I was ready to just type something about people pointlessly wasting money.

That was before I saw the photo. What a beautiful creation!

Now, all I can think is "I wish I had a spare $50,000 so I could do something similar..."

I love that room! Icon_drool

It's very reminiscent of the 'On a Storytellers Night' album cover which is something I always liked. (to the point of having a framed 6ft x 4ft poster of it in my living room)
It's absolutely stunning, but, if he's spent that much money, why has he still got an arcade xbox 360. I notice odd little things like that, but that's just me.
It doesn't detract from a beautiful creation of a room though. If I'd got that sort of money to spend on something like that....would I. Yes I would.
