DIGGING A SECRET TUNNEL Part 10 Phase 1 COMPLETE
Abroad here we go the last leg the last run
phase one is almost done whoa it's so almost right there in the first where are we alright then what's all this about now if you're new here subscribe there are nine other videos on this awesome Project basically symbol First I dug a
tunnel from my house to my shed and finally we will move on to the bunker. Basically I've been focusing on this area here for the last two years, this is what I call
phase one now. Essentially, we branched off from here in the last video because we like this project so much that we added an extra
tunnel because we're basically walking in front of the house because at some point I want to bury the car under the driveway so we can get out of the drive by car, oh this is going to be great so we started thinking about it, haven't quite finished it done so we have half of it to do there will be a little break where we will put my compressor at the moment sitting in the bunker shed absolutely fantastic stic now as you can see this is a wonderful map but I have something better as that, yeah we have a new piece of merch so here we have this print of the architect drawings of the
tunnel just like him it's all in there at the moment we have the cross sections the sidesa n view we're basically
digging more and more written across it because that's basically what I've been doing for the last two years so you can get these colinfirstshop.com For a limited time only, they'll all be characters if you get there early, get signed if you buy this in two or three months.
I can't guarantee they will be autographed now that they are available in different colors but they are a piece of
tunnel history. This video is also sponsored by Surfshark. There will be more about her in the video but never mind Colin you got a bit of a
tunnel to end the hell it's all really loose how really loose it was easy to get your share look at your beads your fingers , see the whole crowd just went down a little more here, see nothing if there ever was a cave, it was a nice truck, oh, I better go and get me, better get me a flashlight, I asked for one Cave and I Maybe No it won't be a full cave to walk around in but it could be a nice shoe closet a shoe closet The closest thing we'll probably get to finding a cave on this project is, um, it is obviously not the huge space I'm hoping for, but it's a slot that runs horizontally rather than vertically and is quite deep, it goes quite a distance because when I get my 1.80m spirit level.
Looks like she's gone entirely, she went straight across like I said before she goes under my house, that's not a dinosaur and not a huge extra room, but she's still pretty cool, keep
digging Colin Keep
digging I filled up my 14 tubs And Rick ain't even back with the last 14 tubs But look I'm on fire I need a third person We got Freddie the upstairs neighbor now he ain't exactly the neighbor , because he is not connected to my house a few doors down, but he is the most interesting guy on the street to do a video because you all liked him last time, but he swears a lot, give us shovels, let's walk a bit we have one on your side company t shirt take a good look at all this you can't you can't be down here wearing whatever's in the oven would be medium just medium , it can not be made ih n to make it look like a blooming dress.
I like them lighter. I like them anyway long look at these big bits boy oh yeah yeah what did we dig in that la section it was actually the driest July in the UK in 100 years but unbelievably was the mud we walked through , the wettest and stickiest we've encountered throughout the project and you kind of figured why. Basically, I think that's a good thing, obviously, when the soil dries out on the surface, the moisture comes from the bottom up to replenish that moisture, you know osmosis kind of keeps it moist, now that makes a lot of sense because if you ever have a really dry spell on a pitch and there was like a Roman foundation or there was a building there you know you see always the foundation a bit where it dries out even more and leaves a mark on the lawn now I used to think it was because the grass wasn't that thick and then you could e sun bake it and it would kill it more, but it's probably the fact that the water can't get past that foundation and keep the soil moist underneath, and with me it's the same background m If the bunker is you can exactly see where the bunker is now in my garden Description You can get 83 discount and three months totally free but what is it?
Prevent hackers from breaking into you. It protects your data and prevents big companies from tracking you when you are on public WiFi. It protects you even then, so basically it's the ultimate in stealth and security, while you're on the internet it can even tell internet you're in different

Support the future project go doug it did everything on this draw orange and i was talking about you know for all these videos finally everything was hand dug now not your thinking colin where is everything over there those buckets you load them up you take them down you pull them up you put them in the van but where did he take connor because we ain't seen that we haven't no no that is a third of that maybe a little bit less but you get the idea we moved a lot of rock ok last bit make the
tunnel make the little cover that the air compressor will use and then of course surround it with concrete have that all You've seen it by now because this time we're going to build the
tunnel straight up On the rock face I have to break down the blocked sides so I had to score the metal and cut it with this wonderful jigsaw piece and fit it in before we continue, ie u replaced concrete holding genius boy back oh yeah it's all welded under it now where the camera compressor is I put this little fence up here and then we actually backfill it with concrete as obviously compressors vibrate when you open them up make a nice solid base.
The noise will spread less than on the kingspan and plywood floor, so the concrete this time there's no barrows, we're literally just going to pour it straight into the hole, straight out of the cement mixer, straight down, right, it'll get the top , let's have it, you know I said before, we've had like the dry summer, God knows how many years the day comes to do the concreting, it's paying off, but there we are right now, there below, right, that's got it all full, that's to the top, that's to the top, ready to be smoothed and all, now we've got a little bit of excess concrete in these tubs, probably a lot more than what we're obviously taking off and had to fill under the air compressor and um we actually had a little more left over this time so I filled The JCB Bucket up but it's good to have too much concrete and not too little.
Now I've shown in previous videos when the concrete comes off it gets really hot The temperature down here was 36 degrees it was like we had another heat wave now concrete slabs are good where we're going to put the compressor so have to we basically have that installed what we are going to do now is all the small finishing touches rip the carpet to giggity get everything nice and clean seal everything seal the whole thing prevent the moisture from getting into the
tunnel from the floor and make it so fussy clean the walls wax it all up it's just the finish the straighteners folks let's see it all looks like this now folks first we're gonna rip that whole mucky rug and clean up really good ready for that what's going to happen next now that you're going to see this isn't exactly chronologically as it happens, but like all big jobs sometimes you have to start a job u nd then start another one and you can't finish another one until that one is done and so on but here we go first we have a permanent attachment for the fan so after a bit of tidying up and tidying up with a wire brush, fully outfitted with my safety squints we then paint the back of the bat box to stop any moisture wicking in any rust and then it's on to the CNC plasma cutter to cut it out Bert Colin never pressed records he just needs to introduce himself , as it turned out, so with a panel cut you just pop the fan through, weld on some mounting tabs, give it a bit of paint, then use magnets to stick it in its hole to stabilize it while you fix it and then, oh , doesn't that look nice we just need some sparks to get it working now before we start running a wire, we have to lift all the outside boards around the
tunnel and that gives us a good chance to clean some of them because various times in the
tunneling process when we had hot concrete that got into the cold
part from the heat, of course condensation, that ran down and gotten some of the boards a little damp and dirty while walking The wires for the sockets were pretty straightforward, we basically just routed them into the outer duct under the planks through the ducts we had left behind.
I mean basically the hydraulics that run it and now the cables run it and then we put the wires up to the outlets through these little ducklings that we left behind, it's like we know we're doing that now would to attach the sockets to the wall we use this amazing tool called a stud welder and this basically welds our little metal stud to the
tunnel wall so you can put the sockets screw on, screw it on, it's nice and solid then you must once i have this side go around the whole
tunnel mark it where all the sockets on the stud weld them all together and then thread the cables in and wire them up now everything fits into the lights this is a whole trickier thing basically we have to have all the cables pull through the box section now i mount the lights on the wall but of course i dont mount just one light oh no there are many lights there are 14 in total Lights, and of course they spread all over the
tunnel, this might take a little longer, but to help me make the holes for the cables I got myself a new tool, why not buy one years ago, that is amazing if anyone out there has seen my videos and there is a tool that is fairly common like a MAG drill that I don't have that I should have but I mean tell me in the comments this is amazing , so with my whole drilling method sorted back to the old class ic Furs plastic bag at the end of a better cord vacuumed to Fred, the cord work, we just have to thread all those cords, mount the lights, and then turn it all on , now I know that doesn't look that bad on the camera, but I'm not that happy with these wall lights, basically I did it like this in the
tunnel in the bunker, and I thought I'd do it the same way, so if it's si After that everything fits together, but now that's a lot longer, it looks a bit dark, and also because you're staring at the lights, this wall here is like darkness to me.
I can't see them so I've been experimenting down here we put them on the wall ceiling I like it much better so happy with the new lighting position I've now fixed the rest of the lights which means I can now taking off the temporary festoon lights we've been using to illuminate so far, we're going to wire the light switches to the fuse box and on to the next job which is to temporarily seal the ends of the
tunnel and basically stop all the moisture coming out of the rock enters the
tunnel, causes condensation and moisture, and causes rust.
Now the shed end of the
tunnel has a vent that goes to the surface that's
part of the ventilation system and blocks it off and weld this little collet on the back, get this piece of flexible pipe, tape it on top and then block it off, that was a bit difficult, alright, so
