A Wisconsin family was in for a big surprise when they moved into their new home. In the backyard, they found a strange metal door — upon opening it, the family discovered a fallout shelter. Such shelters were common during the Cold War time period.

Architects from a firm called B-ILD reportedly decided to turn the bunker into a trendy vacation home.

According to American Overlook:

The architects worked to turn the bunker into a suitable “hotel room” for two lucky contest winners. After the contest ended, the bunker was available for rent as a vacation home.

In an unbelievable feat, the designers and architects collaborated to transform the 97-square-foot area into a home featuring a functional kitchen, dining room, bedroom, and living room. All of the furniture and pieces were custom made; nothing was purchased or manufactured and every item was designed to have multiple functions and purposes.

Check it out for yourself — what do you think!?
