2 Men And 100 Days: That’s All It Took To Build This Underground Pool Paradise!

two men building an underground hut. one is shoveling cement-like material and the other is placing rocks on an outside wall.

What do you get when you put two insanely skilled people in a small, private jungle in California? In this case, a modern, underground hut with a swimming pool!

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, it only took them 100 days to complete. At this point, you may be wondering: How is that even possible? Luckily, the answer to that question lies in a video that Mr. Heang Update shared on YouTube. The time-lapse video shows them building the hut from start to finish, and with over 137 million views in just a month, it’s safe to say that lots of people are asking this very question!

Using what’s available around them, the men can be seen gathering materials like dirt, rocks, and water to create the perfect jungle oasis. There’s so much to be amazed at when watching their process, but one of our favorite parts has to be when they make the pool. It’s just so mesmerizing watching them go from carving out a hole for the pool and laying a foundation to adding water that looks gorgeous on top of the blue-painted floor.

It’s videos like these that remind us of just how much creativity and ingenuity there is in the world. We can’t wait to see what they do next!

Watch their mesmerizing process from start to finish in the time-lapse video below, and don’t forget to share.
