Watch This Heated Pool Being Hand-Built (Video)

Really been getting into these ‘primitive construction’ type videos lately. Dudes go out into the wilderness with limited tools – mainly just their hands, what’s around them, and their ingenuity – and build incredible structures. It relaxes me watching these. Hard work, but quiet.

Nothing I would actually do for real, but I like watching this stuff. Maybe you will, too. Heated swimming pool anyone?

“A house? In 24 hours? No way!”

That company sought to partner with PIK Companies Group, Samsung Electronics, TechnoNICOL Corporation, Bitex Reibeputz Company and Fabrika Okon to make the tech and make the house happen. Once all was in place, in just a day’s time, with a huge on-site 3D printer, in Russia, a 400-square-foot home was built, at a cost of slightly over $10,000.

Watch, and be amazed. Crazy. Crazy COOL!
