Its funny how I've always dreamed of doing this but you took it to reality
Ay you can to man
I have a feeling that you didn't see the 30 Mexicans behind the scenes
@TheHandleSticks66 good luck trying to start one up after experiencing a thermobaric bomb lol
@Canadian Pharmacy couple things wrong with your comment, first you're thinking of thermobaric bombs and the moab is not thermobaric, however the foab is. Second, thermobaric bombs don't make people suffocate by vacuuming up all the air in the area, I keep hearing this myth. The only way the bomb would cause someone to suffocate is if the pressure wave ruptures their lungs.
@TheHandleSticks66 oxygen candles? Is that a real thing?
"'He's crazy', they said, last week. 'He's building underground tunnels!' they said.This week? They're asking me if I still have copies of my design."
Only for patron members I’m sure
@Hammurhed Sherk for the house to not fall apart 😳
@Daniel Reed and we all appreciate it
Wow, you paid attention in language arts!
The value of the house obviously increased with every addition he's added over the years, but now I think the tunnel and bunker are driving up the value much much more than before lol
I live in a second floor flat so diggin will just get me in my neighbours livin room lol
Good! That will save you a lot of time. 🤣
Do what Del Boy did and put a Nuclear Bunker on the roof.
well it will increase your ceiling height so make sure you allow for extra lighting coverage
There's a shop under my flat.
It's free real estate.
i cant wait for this to be completed it's going to be magnificent
Having a bunker is becoming more desirable by the day.
For what lol
@Sergio 223 the bunker isn’t under the house it’s under the garden under a few feet of concrete, steel and earth
And this genius got sponsors to pay for all of it
Especially if you live in Lincolnshire!
I dunno? The thought of being stuck in a bunker with the missus for two weeks. I mean, how bad can WW3 be?
I absolutely love this series!!Can't wait till the next one!It might prove useful to you with what's going on in the world.
Colin you are a brave man digging under your foundations. Having seen the results of subsidence I would get some more concrete under those walls as soon as possible.
And a RSJ girder
I'm excited to see what Colin is putting in here about to the subway. A ladder or that would be the most beautiful thing, perhaps a lift?
@Ryan Turner Like the pole idea :)
Remember, we are talking about Colin. I'm thinking a human transport tube like Futurama or the Jetsons. Or! Hey, why not a ceiling attached hydraulic cylinder/fireman pole hybrid method that you can slide down (GTFO quick option) but also has a bottom attached platform that you stand on to go up or down?
My thoughts as well, I was trying to imaging what type of lift mechanism he could design an fit.
Colin has the most important lift, one that delivers tea. I couldn’t imagine life without a cuppa and a chocky digestive!
Yes with all that’s going on right now I wish we could all afford to build a bunker 🙌🏽 That’s said though we can’t stop living life for fear of death! ❤️
Now we just need an edit showing the center of the earth lmao
@Internet Username mgkffddf
Place a green fabric on the tunnel floor, video edit, profit.
We won’t need an edit soon enough colinfurze is going to be subterranean
Then you will find Encino Man.
Can I come stay down there until it's over?😁
I'd get digging if you shared your secret on how you got council planing permission, engineering approval, health & safety authority sign-off, Government waiver for their claim on any mineral deposits in the land you own, and no doubt approval from the mines department........
He's literally done that recently.
God do u have to live so relentlessly in the real world
He's got his bunker loicense
@Daniel Lequartez sorry I read it wrong haha
@Matthew verdegaal i know
I've always thought about how you are sorted if a war would happen. I would love to have a bunker like you. Keep up the good work can't wait till its finished 🙌
At least we would have an excuse for our girlfriends/wifes and neighbours: "I have to do this in case the Russians go mad."Man cave approval was never so easy.
@GG Well people are too. Hi from Ukraine!
@SebastianHalskov their government yes... but not their ppl
@Gentleman Driver lmaoo ME TOO 🤗🤗🤗 not the sports car tho, I WISH, I have a house instead ill rent out different sports cars in the future but I don't want to get married or have kids I just want to be happy and those things don't bring me happiness, beautiful fast cars and beautiful houses do :) still in my early 20s there's so much time ahead to travel and be happy 😇
"In case they go mad" they already have
@seigeengine im a girl i defo think bunkers are cool and tbh id use it too BUT its the "escape" part that got me thinking ... why marry if you need to ESCAPE that sounds... scary
This project is phenomenalThe amount of hardwork you have put in to bring this project forward is just mind blowingLove from Kashmir
I fear there will be entirely too much digging in the weeks to come. I hope everyone helps them to the best of their ability...
Thanks to your videos I am now creating my own underground bunker and looking to run a passage up to the main house, although I think I might be a bit less secretive to aid speed
Keep up the great work! Been following along, what an epic project!
You’ll definitely need to up your ventilation system especially if you’re near a primary target. Also filming this process AND having all your neighbors know compromised your security so I hope you have thick metal doors that can withstand blow torch and explosive attacks.I’d also like to add you’ll need medical knowledge or someone who has medical training and quite a lot of supplies and water which you don’t physically have room for unless you drain your bank account and go mad digging a larger complex underneath your existing fallout shelter.
I'm really looking forward to seeing how Colin engineers the ladder/lift. My money is on a lift.
@Alayah Bartlett Good point
Nah, windmaker below your feet that lifts you up to ground level via provided umbrella
Powered by a gas turbine
Lifts break. Last thing you want is the lift to break down right as the bombs drop.
Rest assured, Colin, you have inspired most of us. We are all digging!
I bought a new house, and for the past 2 months i have been digging out the yard to make it level and putting in drains and footings (contractors gutting the interior so i can only work outside). Had to dig 1 to 3 feet over the entire thing to remove the slope and get it down where i needed it. Digging is rather enjoyable.
How deep is the tunnel? He almost looks photo shopped Into it colin! Loving this series a lot aswell! Can we have more regular shorts thought please? It'll save Callum writing to you again :P
Colin has literally timed this tunnel dig to perfection
"Furze delved too greedily and too deep... *you* know what he awoke in the darkness of the ground beneath the house."
@Dave Webster Radon gas.Naturally present in volcanic rock,which is commonly used in the building trade.Major concern with THAT cellar* is that there is no air circulating.Carbon monoxide buildup will kill the occupant way faster than radon.(*anybody google the word "oubliette"🐱)
@noxious456 Much prefer a BBQ in a garden,prefer that Boris isn't invited,naturally.*🐱*If he did turn up he would fib about it....or use the"HUHNE DEFENCE"(my wife's to blame)
@Boogie Knee wow, you must be real fun to have around at parties...
"We do not fear what lies beneath, we can never dig too deep." - Diggy Diggy Hole
aye he woke the great firewyrm .......known by his high elven name of "Subsidence"Amusingly,any of his neighbours might take the precaution of having the local planning office to pop round,since his action here might destabilise the neighbouring property.Also,depending on the previous use of the land he may have just disturbed some safely sealed toxic substances.(Several locations in my home town used to house some very interesting chemicals which locals knew damned well were buried on site before the land was used for housing.)The folk living in one of the student flats for example were unaware their site was a former petrol station,until somebody became poorly from eating food grown in their back gardens.
"So how is Colin?""I don't know, I rarely see him""How come?""He is constantly underground digging!"
😂😂😂 his Digging a hole for his self literally could be taken Wrongly if it’s come from his wife
Let’s hope Colin is able to finished all the areas of the tunnel from the house to the bunker cuz if a war does break he’ll be ok unlike most of us but hopefully it doesn’t
I wonder how many people he's actually inspired to dig their own tunnels . . I mean I've always wanted to do it, but he makes it look so easy (and incredibly hard) :D
Hope Colin has given a thought to Security if someone breaks into either of his two sheds they can get access to his house. Padlocks all around I think! 🤔
I was wondering how any permits you prolly had to get to do all these cool mods to your property. I'm sure the city had a lot of red tape. My old poa would get pissed if ya had your grass an inch or so too tall. Still pretty cool though I've been following the whole series on your tunneling . Very cool l stuff!
Whenever the local planning department gets an application from this guy they probably think "uh oh, what's he up to now?'
I was thinking when I watched your last video “I wonder if Colin ever considered he might actually NEED his bunker”
Been waiting for the weather to dry back out, planned on digging a hole straight up just for the sake of it. These just reinforced that choice 🤣
The tunnel project is awesome! Just a shame it has to end once you get to the bunker....Unless... level 2 perhaps? Underground apartment? 2-floor subterranean condo/dungeon/labyrinth? Hidden depths below still???
I live in a rain forest so that really wouldn’t be a wise thing to do. Even a full excavation and build with concrete would require exterior waterproofing and drainage control. Probably even water pumps on the interior. Not to mention ventilation and black mold issues.
This video series has certainly inspired me to build something similar.Unfortunately, budget, skills and location prevent at this time.A few years from now, though...
luckely in switzerland we already have a tiny bunker in our house. It was the rule if you wanted to build a house like 40 Years ago. We even have regular inspections.
Props(?!) for tying world events into your content, Colin!
Hi, I was wondering if I could dig a little something under my house. However I have been looking at flooding in the Queensland and New South Wales in Australia and now I think I should jack the house up on stilts or add pontoons to it so it will float. I hope you are nowhere near flood prone areas…🙏….cheers Steve
The part where hes going to dig towards the bunker thats the hard part imo from what ive seen on the diagram its further too but I think itll be simpler? The tunnel to the house was definitely more complex
I love how to use yellow lights to give it more of a mineshaft feel
Hell Yes!, as long as proper safety + code precautions are followed.
What you all don't realize, is that while you have been distracted by his entertainment tunnel dig, he has secretly been digging out a massive and hardened deeply buried survival bunker, 2000 meters down, and has been stocking it with food, water, power generation and so forth to last for years. Colin could become the last man on Earth. Or under it.
You want a meter of earth on every side to protect against radiation . I was tempted to start digging but by the time I've built a shelter I'll either be dead already or it will have ended peacefully. My great grandad built one and only ever used it for growing forced rhubarb in
A metre of earth above as well? surely just a concrete basement with suspended concrete deck would suffice? (I say “just” like it’s trivial but you know what I mean…)
I only grow consent rhubarb
His bunker has around a meter of Earth and concrete :)
If only we all had the the skill, knowledge and resources to build one...we'd have definitely done so.
I've always thought to do this in the event of a zombie apocalypse or an abandoned underground missile silo. Every day I watch the news I add more to the saving account labeled UC
Good timing almost finishing this tunnel, right as a war is starting.
@AusGuy He started the tunnel before the pandemic, and then took a break from it for awhile during the pandemic. He stated in the first episode that he wanted to build the tunnel because he wanted a connection between his bunker, house, and workshop. Toward the end of the second episode, he tells us that it was April of 2021, and that it had been a year and 3 months since he had been in the hole that he first dug, stating that he took a long break because of the pandemic
@Like Birds ? He did it because of the lockdown.... He did it all quite?
@AusGuy because of lockdown, and he didnt want to disturb his neighbours
But it took 2 year to the shed and not to the bunker yet.....
I have a hobby of finding old bunkers, military undergound stuff and old abandoned stuff in general, but due to recent events it's got me thinking about bunkers more than ever.My mates joke that I know where to go if it really does kick off, but I imagine there will be thouands of other people with exactly the same idea!I need to build my own, my house is ontop of a small hill, so could be a good place to build one.
If that's the case, maybe you should do a small series on bunker survival. Build a long term air filtration system. Bunker Hydroponics and Microgreens. Duckweed is a super food for protein.You've got that tunnel to build to the bunker from the tunnel yet, could build a entire little section in there for a indoor garden on either side. Really use the space. Left wall's microgreens and right wall's potatoes and berries maybe. You could have an entire separate tunnel for this too.
Colin, I would be stocking that bunker right now just to be on the safe side. Also a good ham radio would be a good idea as well.
To be honest I have thought about it since finding your videos last year. I don’t subscribe to many Clip-Share channels but after 1 of your videos I was hooked thanks for all you do
Yeah i've always thought this would be something i would need one day. Here we are in 2022 and you already got one and i'm stuck with a house with too high of a surrounding water level to do this easily. I'll tell you what, i'll let you build one elaborate one under my property if you fund it and let me help and be in the videos... i know, thats a stretch but i had to try! Anyways colin, i fear for this world and i really pray the truth emerges soon so we the people can live in harmony with true liberty and freedom for all.
Praying doesn't work.But don't tell anyone I said that.
Jeez Colin, how deep have you dug?! He really did look tiny down there! (Also, Furze teaching us to dig escape tunnels and make our own bunkers years before we knew we'd need 'em is a bit scary...care to share next week's lottery numbers with us...? 😋)
he should really go into politics maybe they could learn a thing or two from him about predictions
@Technikchaot Well played sir and/or madam...well played.
Oh thats no Problem I can say you 3 numbers of a lottery next week. But I won't say you which lottery you should do with this numbers. So good look in participation all lotteries worldwide next week.
I’ve always wanted an under stairs cupboard that opens up the floor to be a bunker If the day comes where I can do that then life will be complete
I wonder if he's going to do one of those super steep split step staircases
"Why are you digging?""Why are you not?" :p
If I had the money I'd actually build an underground house...I've seen several around where I live and they look amazingly cozy...plus probably do great on heating and cooling bills as well I'd guess.
Because my water table is 3 feet below grade :(
"I'd be going through the roof of the people living on the 1'st floor""Much easier just to take the stairs down to the basement" :ø)
Way cool to see that far down into the Earth from a closet in your house! We live atop lacustrine silt. Easy removal but lousy stability. The three story beach house Colin did...a spruced up version of that is what's going to work here.
Colin has to be the most comforted man in the world right now. Trying to figure out how to build mine in a swamp, prolly not gonna happen
We should all be preparing in some capacity. Wish I could dig a tunnel without hitting limestone almost immediately under the surface soil. lol
Imagine, if they had a party and forgot to lock the room, and a mildly drunk person just falls in there
You would be down there anyway no one knows
Or if the house itself falls in there, since he has removed much of its foundation for Clip-Share likes
My thought as well when I watched the hole breaking through :)
Sir, you have great timing.How did you know ?btw, i live in the netherlands. And i dont think i can dig that deep before water starts pouring in.
Do an episode on how to build the tools, the process, etc. Right about now a whole lot of folks are appreciating the idea of a bunker...
I’d love a bunker. You make it look so much fun to make but in reality if I did my own it would be my grave
This is epic, cant wait to see it finished 😄👍
DOOD, you have hit the nail on the head, all your mates will be over at yours if anything goes down. That tunnel is making more and more sense now.
My house is built on clay. Even if such a hole could be dug (without collapsing the house) simply keeping water out would be near impossible.
You may have a lot of new "friends" for a while. Hope all this settles down as best it can. Not looking favorable right now. Keep digging.
I bet if you knew how much it would cost that`d put you off.
Colin has been knowing every thing already for months, you should give some hints to the gov sometimes
I seriously think this is probably one of the best things that can be done right now.
That makes sense, who wouldn’t want to dig out the entire foundation of their house because of a non existing threat
Considering the state of things you might want to put-in (
Put the door back on. It looks weird being in the kitchen and in the pantry is a dirt hole. But so super cool. I never thought when I subed all those years ago that we would dig under and into your family house colin. But it's genius. Tea then to work and/ or play. Much love and God bless.
I would love to have a bunker, one big enough to keep all my tools and equipment and park my truck in!
I was just wondering if the next episode will transform into the creation of the Furze nuclear bunker.At least if it all goes Pete tong you're nearly there.All I have is a plastic shed, that'll do right??
Maybe it's the dungeon master in me, but that looks like a good spot to screw a treasure chest to the far wall & cover the pit with rug on a spring hinged platform.
When the cataclysm comes Colin’s gaff here we comeDig more lots more 😂
Yes everyone should be digging 😂
We will need to dig deeper than that to make it safe against nuclear strike...
i got no rocky bottom under my house and a high water lv so it would suck and cost a lot more
Colin, when I say you're insane, I mean that in the best way possible
From what I recall 3 foot under starts to diminish rads and 7 foot down is ideal. Issue comes into how tight and clean u have it.
I love how Secret is a Hashtag for this and EVERYONE knows!
ShhhhTalk like that could make stuff go viral
Let's just say your timing with building this is spot on. It may need to be a bit deeper though. 😬
I wonder if he’s going to put in a steep staircase going into it or just a ladder
Holes in the middle of a building wont help much in dire circumstances. Chances are rubble would pile above the hole effectively trapping those inside
Furz from down under 😂If ya dig much further you may tick off some Australian opal miners ???✌️
Can we expect that the bunker will be extended to deeper rooms and corridors?And have the neighbors also started building?
I already start digging yesterday. But I start directly in my House heading east under the Forest. God dig my friends
Hey Colin can you dig a little bit "Furzer" into the base of your house? Maybe for the storage of your tea or something. The climate should be very stable there to store things.
If only i had started two years ago!, Man that is a lot of work youve put in. its like taking a picture of the moon or of a slope. the videos just sort of show how much work it is but its probly quadruple
I was actually thinking the exact same thing. If WW3 happens, Colin is safe (well, safer than the rest of us anyway)
If I'm ever able to buy a piece of land to build my own house on and enough extra cash for a decent family saloon car... I'm gonna build me one of these. But, the chances of me owning said bit of land, to build my own house on, and having enough money to buy a decent saloon car to build me one of these is low. Zero if Vladdy decides to throw his toys out of the buggy.
It's good timing for you, I should visit you in England every other Sunday and watch F1 in the bunker, and in that way be safe (when Max and Ham are fighting on the track)
Not gonna lie, when all this started kicking off I thought of you and your bunker. Going to have half of England try and climb in there. Make sure your hatches are lockable from the inside
I understand there's building regulations, but is there such a thing as digging regulations, because digging creates an empty space and I can't guess how nothing could be regulated?
Guests: ‘why is there a hole in your floor’Colin: ‘nothing much just a secret tunnel’
And that's the problem with a nuclear bunker, you have to keep it absolutely secret or you'll need a pump action shotgun as all your neighbours swarm the house trying to get in when the 5 minute warning goes off.
Not much of a "secret" anymore, not with about 5+ million views per video!
If it happens, I'm coming to stay with you bro,you make the tea I'll bring the biscuits🤣🤣
Let’s all just hope that we shouldn’t all be digging.We are all a few years work behind you Colin, I don’t think we have time to create what you have done. However, I don’t think your wife will be angry, if you now, show her what you have created! 😉🤣😂
Colin mate you are a funny and intelligent bloke keep up the hard work pal 👍🏻
Is that going to cause structural issues to the house? Seems like the plumber is out of his depth here.
Collin knew that he would need this bunker.Lets all just dig straight down and we meet in the middle. 👍✌️
