Man Renovates 700-Year Old Cave House To Dream Home

January 14, 2016


This is a video about 38-year old Angelo Mastropietro and the 700-year old cave house he renovated into his dream home. Angelo spent $230,000 and over 1,000 hours hand-excavating (despite suffering from multiple sclerosis) some 70 to 80 tons of rock from the existing cave house to make it his own. Despite the lack of natural light, I'm really digging(!!) the finished result. Still, I'd be a little worried about the cave's original owners showing up and wanting it back. And I'd be even more worried if those owners happened to be bears. Bears don't take too kindly to their property being stolen. You ever wonder what happened to Goldilocks after the three bears incident? "She ran away." Sure, EXCEPT -- when I was in the woods gathering mushrooms for a potion one day I stumbled upon a pile of bear shit with blonde hair in it.

Hit the jump for the video, then let's all go live in Hobbit holes and let our feet hair grow.

Thanks to hairless, who trekked to a cave high in the mountains to seek wisdom from an old witch but when he got there she was already dead, the end.

    One time I bought a piece of furniture from Ikea and put together myself. Thing took hours to build, so I can definitely relate.

    But does it have Wifi?

  • S.M. Archer

    psh we all know IKEA only comes with the basic LAN connections. But I added a WiFi usb connection, it's pretty nice now.

    Same here, plus I had to pee really badly the whole time.

  • S.M. Archer

    Now that's determination.

  • But how's his Internet?

    [No, I did not watch the video. If you could provide a constructive answer based on data provided during said program, I would appreciate it.]
