Andres Canto took a pickax into the garden and started digging after arguing with his parents. Six years later, the hole is now a den with a bedroom, wifi and sound system.

After Andres Canto got into a fight with his parents, he took a pickaxe out of the garden and started digging. Six years later, what started as just a hole in the ground is now a fully excavated cave, complete with a bedroom, Wi-Fi, a sound system. I suppose you can have your lazy man cave to sit around and watch TV if you actually dug the thing yourself.
