Fallout 4 is set to be one of the biggest releases of this year, with fans worldwide fighting over the last remaining PipBoy editions of the game and an ever increasing player base coming too Bethesda’s Fallout Shelter Mobile game for thier quick Fallout fix before the games release on November 10th.

Some fans are more enthusiastic about the game than others, with Canadian man called Trey Hill creating a Vault-Tec inspired vault door inside his newly built home.

The Vault door weighs a total of 100 pounds, which is just over 45 kilograms, and can be rolled open and shot to enter and exit his home theater. 

Building the door cost the man $400 and tool a month to build. The Vault door is labeled as Vault 404, which is the code for a missing web page, which Trey believes is very appropriate since he is an IT manager. Below we have a image showing how the door is opened and closed. 


“I tell most people I built it because I am north and bored, but the real reason is I recently built the house,” Trey told PC Gamer. “My wife said, ‘since you built us a house, the basement is yours to do what you want.’ She may end up regretting that statement.

 “The hardest part was making the door fit the hole without having it fall through or sit twisty,” Trey said to PCGAMER. “To fix this, the back side of the cog is slightly smaller than the front, so it slides in nicely and doesn’t fall through.”



Pictures of Treys build progress and finished Vault door are available on his imgur account, which is definitely worth looking at.
