Why not ask Josef Fritzl, he seems to know about basements.

Have you seen that Simpsons episode where Felcher... No, what's his name.. Flanders has a nuclear survival shelter and everyone gets in on it and he's the one locked outside? That ;)

possibly. Its a future project.

In an ideal world I would like to build an enormous underground bunker in the back field like some sort of bond villain

Can't you buy & old shipping container & do a deal with the farmer for storage - as I recall, your road is out in the sticks surrounded by fields - so you could land it accrues the road couldn't you ?

Actually I wonder if you could follow a similar style for a lower level - he simply dug down, made a metal box and then poured concrete all around it.

1.   His ground conditions were pretty good – they were almost self supporting walls in the short term load scenario!
2.   They had a decent sized excavator for the job that you wouldn’t be able to use inside a house!
3.   As the house was far enough way, you weren’t trying to support that too – you’d have to underpin the house appropriately beforehand if excavating within an existing – whilst missing any utilities etc.
4.   I expect furze could dispose of the material at his mate’s tom lamb’s farm or something… don’t underestimate the disposal cost.

It is doable, just fookin expensive… and time consuming given it’s within an existing – like with all jobs (and many other extracurricular activities) access is key!

His bunker is most blokes wet dream.

Can you imagine when he comes to sell that place, would love to see the estate agent blurb on it.

Zippy - christ it doesnt seem 2 minutes since you were still at school  :ohyeah

How times change  :read
I like parts of being an adult - the whole work thing is a bit of a drag though

Sounds like you've got a similar setup to colinfurze at the moment - he manages a fair amount of projects, and then built a bunker in his garden  :ohyeah

My main garage has a really high ceiling, and I have a row of heavy duty shelving up there, I should have plenty of storage space to get things up off the ground.

truth be told I am selling the ktm dirt bike, and that out the garage now and down at the local dealers, however I may end up buying my dads dirt bike off him as a cheaper ride, but I need somewhere to store the thing so I am not tripping over it all the time.

I was considering removing some of the selving and installing some sort of winch to lift it up out the way. potential disaster waitin to happen I suppose if it lets go (whilst I am underneath it)

I could just build a pit and bury it.
