Man Spends $50,000 Building Elder Scrolls Basement

June 10, 2015


This is a video tour of the 1,500-square foot basement that comic book artist Tyler Kirkham transformed with an Elder Scrolls theme over the course of two years with the help of his father, who's a building contractor. I would definitely live down there. I would definitely live down there, and commit the rest of my short life to playing Elder Scrolls online and yelling upstairs for somebody to bring down more snacks and sodas. *burps, throws up on shirt, removes shirt, keeps playing*

Keep going for a video tour, including the $20,000 home theater system and $15,000 mineshaft bathroom.

Thanks to my old pal C-Nasty, who used to come over in college and use my home phone to call all the girls he knew while I played video games.

    That basement looks like some camps in my hometown. Could have bought several acres of land with a dilapidated 1800s cabin with lots of stonework and genuine lack of insulation and huge air gaps. All for probably under $30,000.

    Maybe it's not perfect for all the critics, but this guy is living his dream and the basement looks awesome. (As does the rest of his property) BTW, I think Bethesda might have juuuuuuust a little more coin to spend on their decor and a bit more access to "authentic" items.

  • GeneralDisorder

    This guy has a basement he can stand up in and a wife who doesn't hate him. I'm jealous of at least one of those things.

    Side note though... if these people ever try to sell that house, they aren't likely to find many takers unless they give the basement some better mass appeal or just strip everything out of it.

    50k and it looks like a crappy Nexus house mod. Could've spent that 50k on replica armor, weapons, and other items from the games. Have you seen the stuff Bethesda has in its office? They have Alduin's Wall, and a replica Elder Scroll! This guy doesn't even have a good projector.

  • I bet he's never played any other Elder Scroll's game.

  • Martin Ruby

    I get what ppl are saying... But i'm sensing alot of butthurt

  • James Mcelroy

    I'm not going to say it's not a badass basement, but I am going to say this was a huge waste of money. Here's my fake practice dummies, and fake weapons and tons of other props. DON'T TOUCH MY STUFF!

    No cheese wheels?

  • Maybe I'm being way to OCD here, but having a bunch of modern things like the fireplace among other stuff, just makes this look like a poorly themed basement and there is literally nothing special about this at all.

    I mean christ, I can put boxes in my basement and say its Elder Scrolls also and not spend fucking 50g on it.

  • WhiteEagle2

    Yeah, this just looks like a bunch of typical ski lodge decorations. I haven't watched the video yet, but the only "Skyrim" identifiable stuff is the dragon sign and the iron helmet.

    For that price, I would expect that they would have tried make exact replicas of the furniture and decor. Like the stuff in this image:
