Modern Caveman: Man Builds A $230,000 House In 700-Year-Old Cave — 1 Comment

  1. A magnificent creation by Angelo, who seems to have perfected everything from the installation of the chimneys to the treatment of the interior walls. I live not far from him, and have visited many such caves in sandstone; they usually have been inhabited by humans or livestock over the centuries. In older times, a common frontage to the caves was an all-wood barricade. Well-known caves were at a range of hills in this area “The Malverns”, and at the town of Bridgnorth ( spelled with no “e” ). The sandstone cliffs were often exposed during the last ice age, or through the actions of rivers. A problem can be that the sandstone is very soft and can wear away or even break off easily, so Angelo’s work to preserve this particular example is all the more impressive.
