‘Brat Cave’ Turns Aggravation into Architecture

It all started back in 2014 with a run-of-the-mill teen drama: “My parents wanted me to change clothes… but I wanted to wear the track suit.”
Then-14 Andres Canto, of Alicante, Spain, saw only one way to settle the score: grab his grandfather’s pickaxe and dig a giant hole to call home.
Eventually, the pickaxe was replaced with a pneumatic drill. A hole in the ground expanded into a 10-foot-deep “brat cave” with a bedroom and sitting room, arched entryways, and vaulted ceilings.
He even has an unspoken deal with the spiders and snails who come to visit. “If I have destroyed their house, I let them build it in a new place in the wall. It’s no problem.”
