Dad builds a cave that hides an amazing James Bond-style secret

A DAD has completely built the last human cave with a secret James Bond-style door and a wood burning stove.

Neil Wheatley from Jarrow, Tyne and Wear, has turned his old pigeon coop into a private lair with a homemade concealed door disguised as a bookcase.

The 40-year-old sales consultant used wooden pallets to make the door leading to the bathroom and a piece of wire, hook and metal piece for the latch.

Neil spent just £1,200 on a new roof and exterior cladding for the warehouse, based on his allocation.

The old warehouse doesn’t look luxurious from the outside, but Neil has turned the interior into a rustic cave.

Complete with a Christmas Tree for the festive season, Neil installed a wood-burning stove and a fully equipped kitchen.

The grained wood walls and furniture are reminiscent of a country cabin, complete with views of the grasslands.

He said: “I’m pretty creative so with the build I wanted to come up with something different.

“The original plan was just to put a door on the small toilet, but it was boring and took up space.

“So by creating a bookshelf door, we were able to maintain the privacy of the toilet but also maximize the space for storing items.

“Then the way to open the door and use the book is a bit laborious but well worth it. I wanted to create something that stood out.”

Neil has managed to upgrade and recycle everything else in an effort to keep costs down, with the windows, flooring and kitchen appliances all donated by friends.

“I have four kids and want to build something that’s fun and surprises them, so building something basic is never going to work out,” he said.

“The idea for the barn was somewhere warm and comfortable for us to spend time together as a family.

“If we’re doing allotment and the kids just want to relax, there’s a lot of space for them to do that, and in the summer we can hang out, have a BBQ and enjoy weather.

“I think the main thing is that your imagination has no limits, things may not be built to be perfect in the eyes of some, but I can look at things like bookcases and tell myself created that.”

“It might take a few tries to get the sizing right to make sure it opens correctly and trying different things to create the mechanism for the book opening, but that’s how you learn – try and wrong.”
