Can anyone provide me with resources to build a tunnel by myself? I suspect there must be military pamphlets on the subject or maybe even books but I couldn’t find them.

1. How do I get into this?

2. …without dying


Here is the youtube channel of someone who is building a hobby tunnel with remote controlled miniature excavators.

The house above the William Lyttle tunnel in this entry (the UK press nicknamed him the Mole Man) has since been restored by David Adjaye architects. It now looks like a rather stylish and expensive ruin.


Colin Furze is documenting a tunnel build in his backyard:

The story there of William Schmidt is wonderful in an existentialist kind of way.
