Building an underground grow room

Hey every one i have recently moved to the country and after much debate with my friends,
I have decided to make a “hidden” room underground somewhere on my property (over 400 acres)
since i really don’t want to try to grow out side ( i see deer all over the place).
I cannot grow in the house since my significant other does not like it .
But I have always wanted to do it I have searched the forum all over and have not found
any threads on digging and making an underground grow opp.

So I have 3 Questions I have searched for on the forum but I cannot find any Topics on it

I have made a basement before so this will not be a problem but I am worried about the roof
any suggestions to make a roof I can cover with dirt and it will not rot?

I have no electrical experience how will I grab a full power line from one of my buildings and
get it to my “hole” (I don’t want an electrician to do it)

How deep should the roof be underground so there is little or no heat signature from the ground?

So I have
– Tractor with a back hoe
– 1000 LB Cement mixer
– Lots of cement
– Rebar

Any help would be awesome

i have seen 1 underground operation before. my friends dad. it was under the shed. well small garage but yea a shed. the floor had a trap door under a tool box that sat in the shed on top of carpet. i partyed in there all the time and never suspected anything until she told me and showed me.

the walls were angled in dont know why but they were. and the ventilation system went out orf the roof of the garage shed type thing. it had a garage door but never parked a car in there just lawn mowers and stuff.

as far as the electric. it is not hard to hook up just run it and tap into a panel somewhere. very easy i am sure you can get someone on ehere to help you with that part

I have seen underground grows on the internet. One had semi trailers buried that were connected together to form different rooms. Another option would be a conex container. The containers you see on construction sites or at receiving ports. These containers sre designed to stack on top of each other so 4-5 ft of earth won’t collapse them. You could paint the outside with a rust inhibitor.

You will probably want to bulid a small building or shed to conceal the entrance. A little dilapidated out building in a random place on a farm is pretty common so I’m sure no one would suspect anything.

Running electrical to your site should be run underground in grey electrical PVC conduit at least 1′ deep. So you will probably want to be somewhat close to your power source. Then you need to consider whether or not you have enough power coming to your existing electrical system to adequately provide juice to your grow op. If not then you will have to get an electrician to help you. Just tell him the lil outbuilding is going to be a workshop and you need power run to it to run tools and what not. When he asks “why isn’t it a lil closer to your house?” tell him that your wife wanted to move out to the country for some peace and quiet and she’ll be deamned if she is going to listen to you bang and tinker out in the shed all day. A generator would also work well.

You are also going to need water at your site as well. I would suggest a well. Tell the well guy the same excuse you will tell the electrician. Good luck with your endeavor.
