It’s not uncommon to completely rethink life as we know it because of the COVID-19 pandemic. If you’re thinking the way we are, it’s time to cut ties to everything and move underground in a perfectly appointed bunker like the Underground House Plan B from Sergey Makhno Architects that you see here. If the design ethos of perfect design meets modern creature comforts seems familiar, that’s because the firm Sergey Makhno Architects is also responsible for the private residence known as the Rose House that we covered recently. But Underground House Plan B is different in more than a few ways. It includes multiple entrances, a helipad, a water treatment system, generator, a well, plenty of living space with below the surface protection, layers of electrical equipment, medicine stores, isolators, multiple exits and an “evacuation ring.” In other words, this living space has everything you need–included a glass-encased tree and enormous dining table in the living area–to live through the apocalypse.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
