Man builds an easy-access wine cellar hidden in a staircase

Order from Twisted London now!

The coronavirus quarantine has given most of us more time on our hands as we stay at home to save lives, and one man who has decided to make his quarantine very productive is Australian builder Murray Berrill, owner of Murray Berrill Constructions, who made an incredible easy-access wine caller hidden in a staircase.

He captioned his creation on Facebook: "Ok, here's one for the wine lovers. What to do with dead space under the stairs? Create an easy access wine cellar. Proud of this one."

In an interview with FEMAIL, Murray said: "I hate dead space when renovating a house, as you're essentially paying for nothing. So we thought of putting the wine in drawers in the staircase rather than behind it."

The cellar took just a week and a half to make and can hold 156 bottles of wine. Perfect if you're a collector of the finest!

One person who'd love this creation is Sophie Turner, who chugged a glass of wine on MSG Jumbotron:

"The drawers are a wide width and are very strong - we spent around $500 at Bunnings just on the drawers alone," Murray added of his creation.

"We had to work out how all the bottles were going to fit and make sure the entire design was strong enough."

Per the Daily Mail, the wine cellar is estimated to have cost $5,000 to make.

The cellar even has its own built-in thermometer to ensure that the wine is kept at the right temperature at all times, and Murray said that he was considering adding in a unit to keep bottles chilled too.

Needless to say, people were very impressed with Murray's creation when he posted it to his business Facebook page.

One user wrote: "Impressive work. You are obviously a very skilled tradesman."

Another joked: "It would make falling down the stairs drunk a more interesting experience."

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to make my quarantine a lot more interesting by attempting to build a wine cellar of my own!
