Material & costs

I came in a little over my £250-300 budget. Most of the cost involved was in the materials for the wood bunker or base. Here's a rough breakdown:
  • Tonne bag of Sharp Sand
    40 breeze blocks (used about 24, I think)
    4 bags of cement
    2 1800mm concrete lintels
    Total £180 from Wickes
  • 24x 25mm deep Fire bricks
    Total £50 online
  • Cobble stones for decorating top of bunker
    Total £60 from B&Q
  • Most of the footing bricks I had already, so these cost nothing.
  • Various tools and extra materials
    Total £50
  • MOST IMPORTANTLY: The Clay was FREE - dug up from my garden !!
