The Pit, I ask of you... How do you go about making an underground den?

#1
Think about, having your own underground den; how sweet would that be? But what you need to make sure that it remains stable and have conditions satisfactory enough to live in (not permanently obv.)?

And to keep this interesting, what would you have in your den if you were to make an underground den?



EDIT: Obviously you'd all rather have Silo, but this is just something you could do during your spare time, it isn't an alternative to Silo
NOPE.

Is it a bad thing if one of your testicles is larger then the other two?

First you need to summon the almighty bald monkey, who lives high up on the mountain top of Uh-bahk.

Follow these steps:

1. Dig hole
2. Buy couch
3. Place couch in hole
4. Guard from intruders
5. Profit

(The ????? is an unneeded step.)

I would get a TV with some video games, a sweet computer, and a bed.

And some red shag carpet.

Actually, I think this would be easiest to make if you dug an enormous hole, built a concrete structure in said hole, replaced the dirt (the hole would be only so deep that 3 or so inches sit on top of your den) and plant grass again.
Main gear (For complete list, see profile):

Oh, and I have a Squier VM Jazz Bass too.

Ok one whole wall would be a tv, another whole wall would be a huge amp. It would have to have couches, a fridge that takes up the whole wall (aforementioned maxi firdge) and a pit full of kittens.

Lots of struts and supports. Look at mine shafts for example. You'd have to get some sort of surveyor in to check it's safe to do and what not.

Not to mention you'd need to check you're not digging through any electrics or pipes. You'd probably need some sort of concrete base in the ground to support everything and allow you to put a floor down. So check if what's underneath is capable of supporting all the cool stuff you want in there.

Wow this reminds me of when I was a kid, and there was this patch of woods behind the house grew up in. My brother and I would spend soooo much time in those woods building forts and tree houses and doing all kinds of cool stuff. We got really good at it, to. I remember my brother made one fort that was a hole about 4 feet deep, 8 feet long and 4 feet wide, and the top half was logs stacked up to make a log shelter like a log house. It even had looking ports and stuff, it was wicked. I made one myself that was just a hole with a metal sheet over the top (we used the various random junk that could be found in the woods - we got pretty familiar with all of it lol). It was like a concealed bunker. There was a bunch of other awesome stuff we made to, like some really high tree houses. Ahh the memories!!

If I were to build an underground den nowadays, I'd probably make it as crude yet luxurious as possible. I mean I wouldn't worry with good looking interior decorating or anything, it'd just be the cement. But I'd have a hot tub, and a huge TV, and a pool table, and all kinds of mattresses and blankets and beanbags and crap for when people slept, and it'd have a fireplace, to. It'd be pretty awesome. Oh! and ofcourse it'd have a secret escape tunnel.

As a child I found an underground den. It wasn't very fun, more messy and stuffy. Then my sister thought it'd be hilarious to jump on the ground above my den until it collapsed trapping me. NOT fun.
#17

You made me spill hot orange squash over myself you big eejit...

An underground hide-out would be awesome. I'd have a sleeping thing, a music thing, a looky thing and a bar. Par-tay anyone?

you'd need a very long time to dig out a proper den. not just some crappy one. underground network of tunnels is optional. that optional space could be hired out to smugglers for exponential profit. my god, i copyright that idea.
