Angelo Mastropietro bought and carved a home from a cave in the side of the hill, dating back 700 years.  The Rockhouse, as it is now known, is set on a 3 acre site in Worcestershire, England.  Mastropietro did most of the heavy work, to make this five rooms, into a habitable space.  The video below will give you more information about the process.  Following is a sum-up of the stats: Buying the site cost £62,000 (about $87,000) He removed, by hand 70 to 80 tons of rubble, that now makes up the patio. It measures 65m² (about 700ft²).  It has Wi-Fi.  Indoor and Outdoor Shower.  Kitchen, Toilet, Dining Room and a large Double Bedroom.  More pictures below.
