The chemistry bunker either needs to be to the FAR corner or about 200 ft under the main facility at it's deepest possible point.

I believe the regular insulation will have foot thick walls.  What you need to worry about is how to safely connect the two.  The bunker will need a separate exit system (of course), besides being connected to the main complex.

why not just make a curved concrete wall above ground?

itll stop any potential shrapnel, and be reasonably ventilated  Cool
plus, it can double as a workshop for say- windmills and stuff

Morels (like, the mushrooms) can do really well in the winter. They kind of buckle down in cold weather, but I don't know how cold weather they can stand. And I don't know if they freeze over and then become edible again in the spring, or if they're really just fine to eat throughout the winter.

Would save a bit of greenhouse space.

As to the note about a chemistry lab - that would be pretty damn expensive, if you don't mind me saying. I mean, just getting laboratory-grade chemicals would be costly... and difficult. Lab supply warehouses are careful about who they hand stuff over to. Communes are probably pretty low on their list. Also, the equipment and stuff (fume hoods and glassware for example) add another mound of expenses.

What exactly would be the point of a fully-functioning lab, beyond just fun?

lab/workshop
we need to build and maintain stuff like wind generators for example.
plus chemical power supply, self-made fertilizers, etc.

On the issue of food, what's the name of that plant they make pasta from? Is it spirulina? Either way, the amount of carbs and nutrients that can be gained from it are valuable. If we plan on farming and digging and all that jazz, we'll need something that can sustain labour.

Are you kidding?  Pasta is made from flour and water or eggs.  Flour is made from wheat.

lol, this is what I get for being lazy...

"Pasta is normally made of flour, eggs, salt and water.

Most pasta is made with semolina or durum, a type of wheat flour, but other grains, such as corn, rice, quinoa, spelt, and kamut can also be used. These alternative grains yield a softer and often more sticky pasta, but they are a welcome alternative for people with wheat allergies/intolerances.  

Other pasta types are made with whole grain wheat, which makes the pasta darker and more nutritious, or wheat with other flours, including non-grain flours such as soy-bean flour.

Eggs are used in order to improve the technological quality of the pasta. Not only does the egg enrich pasta from a nutritional and organoleptic viewpoint, but it has an important technological function as well, since the egg makes the dough elastic, soft and resistant.

The water is often used to prepare the dough and make it possible to shape. During the drying step most water is removed.

Salt is added for the flavour. "

Semolina was what I was looking for... Spirulina is healthier than fuck but nasty tasting.
