Teenager spends 6 years digging underground cave after fight with his parents

Andres Canto was 14-years-old when his parents rejected his idea of going to the local village donned in a tracksuit.

What could be seen by many as a minor argument angered Canto so much that he looked for ways to vent. This he did by using his grandfather’s axe to dig a hole in the family garden.

Weirdly, what had started as a retaliatory act became an obsession, and soon the hole grew into an underground cave.

After six years of digging, Canto’s mancave boasts of steps, a living room, and a bedroom. Furthermore, it has a heating system, music, and Wi-Fi tethered from his smartphone.

He revealed that there was something therapeutic about digging in the evenings when he got back home from school, which turned him into a part-time excavator.

“It’s great, I have everything I need. It can be tiring to work here as it is wet and there is not much air going around, but I have found my own motivation to keep on digging every day,” he revealed, as reported by The Mirror.

Canto’s bizarre project got a boost when his friend Andreu joined him with a pneumatic drill, and the two chiselled a 10-foot dwelling underground.

For a project that began with him pushing out the soil using buckets, Cante began researching excavation techniques and created a homemade pully to aid in taking out the rubble.

“Sometimes I came across a big stone and it could be frustrating after hours of digging that I had done almost nothing,” the youngster explained.

Canto reveals that the main challenges he faces are occasional floods during the rainy season, as well as insects, spiders and snails.
