Man Living in an Underground Home on $5k/Year

This is the story of a man who is living in an underground home on only $5,000 a year.

The roof is covered in moss and pine needles while the outside wall of the home is built using large stones. A tiny wooden door leads you inside.

Once inside, you’ll find the walls and low ceilings are covered in wood paneling and the floor is covered with carpeting. The bedroom is on the other side of the home which you can access by crawling through a circular hole.

Using a separate entrance, you can access the bathroom which has a composting toilet, a shower, and there’s even a pine wood sauna. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    This man to me is the absolute smartest man in the world with the best place ever. Thanks Alex & the Smartest man in the world for sharing!

    It’s my favorite and wish it could be done everywhere but because the modern men and women feel they need to govern everyone and place codes and rules we destroy the spirit and love of the free people!

    This gentleman has done the best I’ve ever seen in my lifetime and wish him the best!

    Mac Out!

    Thank you so much for posting this! I recommend people watch the video. It’s rare that you run across someone who has been able to live a majority of their live as they truly want to. There is a lot of wisdom in this mans thinking & I enjoyed the entire 34 minutes of the video.

    Wow, the video was great and I have to agree with him, the chasing dollars, working for abusive companies to acquire more stuff that weighs you down and one day causes heart palpitations is my idea of insanity. How did we get to this point? The freedom that comes from getting rid of possessions and simplifying is incredible. I want taller walls (fake knee that doesn’t bend well); but the lifestyle really appeals to me. Thank you for sharing with us.

    This is a little cozy, a little scary and very private! I wonder if I could do this.

    Wow! What a beautiful life view. What a special person. Imagine if we all created our life on our own terms like he has.
