    I'm building an underground lair...NBD!!
    SO just becasue I'm so **** excited, I thought all should know, this summer I am constructing an underground lair, or layer, or lab. It is going to be fairly small. I have not decided if i want to go the 24 CTU route. or the chinese zen route. My current plans are a 7 foot tall 10X6 space. Im planning on digging it all by hand, but I do have a back hoe lined up if it gets to be too much work. It will actually be a foot under ground, with grass above, and a grass topped door. It will have a ladder to get in to save room. I have not decided(becasue of cost and labor) if i will build it with cinder block, or frame it like a house, with pressure treated plywood with a 4mil plasic between dirt and wood. The imterior finishing depends on if i go with CTU or zen. My budget to build and basically have a finshed lair with just a desk and couch framed in is $600. Ill probably dump another 300 in for cool stuff, maybe more. (when I say CTU like, I mean the last season of the FOX show 24)

    I'll keep everyone updated. My goal for complition is July 14th

    DIGGING STARTs FRIDAY!!!

    @fearless.
    It's fairly close to my house, probably conduit from a outlet on the patio trenched to it And Ethernet cable. Unless I can get a wifi signal underground,

    If you need some good information from those who have done similar, you might consider checking out the Survival Preparedness sub-forum on GlockTalk. Lots of folks there have been perfecting, exchanging ideas, and building since before 9/11 and Y2K. You can find some excellent information on structural design, environmental control, communications, legality, utility installation and security over there. There is a range of info for any budget. Especially, check the SPARC (Survival and Preparedness ARChive) sticky as it has all the good links.

    PS - Ignore the crazy posts as there are a few fringe individuals who make things a bit awkward at times.
