Under Ground Fort

I'd like to build an under ground fort, it must be water proof. I want to have a stove in it if possible, i will have big ventilation so as not to have a build up of carbon monoxide. I have access to a wide rang of tools, I live on a farm so space isn't a problem. I did find a plan in a magazine from 1929, its rather vague and i would like more help. I can take as long on it as it long as it takes to build it right, so time isn't a problem. I don't know if i should pack the wall with stones or planks, Ideas? I want to have a good idea of how to do it before I start. It shouldn't be to expensive but that isn't really a factor. People are saying that I shouldn't build an underground fort because of the danger of it. If i didn't make a fire place in it would it be better? How about I put a trapdoor above the fire place, that way i could open it when i used the fire (Update)

Bases

Here we discuss the optional idea of using bases in water wars. In this forum, we talk about designing/building them as well as other things like windows, roof coverings, turrets, and the protection of the base itself.

What is the easiest way to make a cob house? Answered

I am trying to make a cob house. I've got clay, sand, hay, straw, and some concrete. i need to know how to make a foundation and drainage system. I have about a 3 and a half month window to complete this house. I want it to me circular and about 14 feet across. More of a cottage than a house but, still big enough for two small cots, a table, and possibly a dresser and a fire pit.

How can i make an outdoor mosquito free enclose? Answered

I already have a mosquito net. It is made specifically for mosquitos, but here's the twist. The enclose that i want it around is somewhat deep in the woods, and it is a tarp fort. The fort is made out of a tarp that is in between two trees and it is slanted. It's pretty much just a right triangle.  Pretty much all that i am asking is how to seal up the gaps in between the netting and the tarp.

CO2 land mine.

I have a great idea for a paint mine. If anybody has suggestions please tell me. Its my first. The reason I need help with this is because I have people Sneaking up in my tree fort at night and either want to shoot them with a BB (preferred) or soak them in paint. I like both. But I just want some suggestions on this. I am including the mine sketchup file in this post along with a pic. Thanks, Mike

What animal eats the body and leaves the head and feet? Answered

This morning there was the remains of a rat in my yard, The head, gallbladder, and 3 feet were in a little pile and the body had apparently been eaten.  Anyone know what animal does this?  I live in Fort Worth, Texas and we have rats, crows, possums, raccoons, coyotes, domestic cats, snakes, and mink in our area.  I know of several predators that will eat the heads and leave the bodies, but this one has me stumped.
