u should have put GRAVEL behind those walls. dig a trench behind the walls and fill it with gravel. then NO WATER PROBLEMS.

Awesome guys I do hope you don't get a mold problem with the wood getting wet

How were you so lucky that you only had to dig sand? No clay or rocks. Lucky! Do you live on a golf course?

I can appreciate the effort and kids creativeness, however what they are doing is extremely dangerous. Their lack of trench design and understanding of soil composition and safety procedure is a recipe for disaster.

Lucky these kids dont live in California and parents are some trans, snowflake SJW's. These kids would be facing serious charges after their parents sue the other parents and inform the Authorities including the local council about OH and S/environmental damage of the termites?. Yes your really lucky for that. Its a roll of the dice we are not born into families like those. Awesome work lads!!!!! Great life skill/build skills your learning and a great place to invite the girls. This is extreme but maybe the only way to protect your women from the other races desperately trying to enhance their offspring. These are very dark times we are living through. Like no other. Literally hell on this earth. Everything and everyone is upside down in their nature and practices all by design to confuse and divide the peoples. This is how you play to win. Regards

That's a ditch with a lid, not a tunnel. Nice work, however!

It's similar to the cubby houses we made as a kid in the outer areas before you hit the outback. But ours involved earthmoving equipment (everyone's parents had some) and bare walls and old corrugated iron roofing covered in sand.
Cormac MacArtney (3 months ago)
I'm a 57 year old man, worked in the trades for almost 3 decades, and I've gotta say, I am totally jealous of what these kids have here. They got THE coolest playground ever. I wish I had a playground like that. Man, I'd spend the rest of my life building all sorts of crazy things. That's just awesome!

I was thinking the same. Or at least made a clay/sand mix to reinforce the sidewalls with. I'm thinking they were using recycled materials

Squirrel Town  don't let cost stop you. Go around to job sites in your area. Ask them for any excess materials they they are just gonna throw away. Show them your videos. They May even setting stuff aside for you. Take your parents but you do all the talking. Ask for the superintendent. Don't just walk on the sight. Have your parents make initial contact. Since children are not allowed on job sites. Many times it actually helps them out by not having to haul off excess materials. Be nice but confident. Don't start pushing or begging. If you get a good reputation and relationship with them, they might even call you when they get other job sites. Hell in time they might even hire you to do it for them. Or even give you a job. You could even ask for scrap metals and get money from recycling. Keep up the good work.

love this. you might have done some pre-project research by watching "The Great Escape" a couple of times for hints on proper tunnel construction tips.

Retro Dude (10 months ago)
A bit of rebarb and quick mix and you will have a solid tunnel but very cool
Tom Foolery (10 months ago)
that's pretty kickass, reminds me of the days of building forts and towers in trees. Never let the kid inside you go, always have fun and be creative. makes me want to build something now that I have a bobcat and other machines to do it.

In purely construction terms... This is not a tunnel. It's known as a "cut and shut" excavation.

whoa!....the only dangerous thing happening here is when that 3/4" plywood roof rots out in a year or two and somebody falls through....and there seemed to be an adult supervising, too.....even a single sheet of 30 lb. tar paper would have been a good thing to add....
Squirrel Town (1 year ago)
No no adult supervision. Just us kids out digging and building.

Big thumbs up for what you guys have accomplished so far. I would suggest you guys divert to gardening or something for a while. You could sell your produce to level up your builds & tools. Try to find someone in your area who is a successful gardener or farmer.
I don't know if you all are in the prepper movement but a few tweaks & you guys could build a viable SHTF off-grid bug-out shelter. Try learning how to make bullet proof walls though. Cheapest idea I got is sand bags walls filled with 1/2 inch size gravel stones. Another is baked clay bricks if you have a viable source for clay. Much more labor intensive though.
Dr Curmudgeon (1 year ago)
not one tunnel rat in the whole back yard. You all need some VC to do it right.
Dougal Whi (1 year ago)
Forget the military engineering core, send this lot in!! Brilliant.
Squirrel Town (1 year ago)
Thanks! Hope you check out our new bunker video as well!
Another idea would be to use the same water soluble all surface sealer mixed with 50% water or less on the sides & bottom of the tunnel before wood supports & walls are put in. They will water proof the sides & bottom of your tunnels for a few years. You could also soak the wood for a few minutes in that & dry them so they won't rot so easily & last longer.
Good effort. For cheap waterproofing, assuming dirt covers the top, you can invest in water soluble all surface sealer, the kind you can use on brick, wood & porous stuff. Buy a few gallons. Mix in 50% water. Spray on top of the dirt including a few feet from the sides. When it dries the dirt will harden and be water resistant for a few years. Your big problem though will be seepage in the tunnels.
Squirrel Town (1 year ago)
Yea we’ve had a lot of seepage. We kind of been just hoping it isn’t flooded when we go out there. But yeah we should invest in something like that
David Lemaire (1 year ago)
Cool idea! Should build a bigger underground man cave...when you guys get older
Was pressure treated wood used? This was very cool I build one similar and dig mine at least 7 feet deep and turn it to a rootcellar/tornado/nuke shelter
