Post Bricks v. concrete  Reply with quote
So, I think we're in agreement we'll build underground.  Up until now we've been working under the assumption that we'll use concrete.  However, has any one considered bricks?  I think bricks might work better.   Mostly because if we use brinks we don't need to make forms to pour the concrete into.

AFAIK, mortar doesn't hold up very well to the damp...

We need to get in contact with the masons and convince them to share the secrets of making underground tunnels, lol.

On advantage of bricks is that we could add on with out having to dig up the surface.  If we used concrete we would have to remove the surface pour the concrete and than bury it.

Why do you say that?  Couldn't we pour the concrete in the tunnels themselves, as long as we have a fairly good airflow, and then put it up?  There's no reason to dig to the surface!

Well firstthere's the issue of getting the concrete down there.  That aside concrete has to be poured into molds.  There would be no way of getting the out side of the mold into place to pour the concrete.

but, the mold is going to go in though the tunnel entrance...
that entrance should be the same size as the tunnel...

Can't we assemble the mold inside the tunnel?  Who says we have to construct it outside?
