Our house was carved into the side of the mountain and sits entirely underground – it's a huge help when temps get hot | The Sun

CAVE life has never looked so good for one family living in sizzling conditions.

Their home has been carved into the side of a mountain and sits entirely underground.

This has proved to be enormously beneficial when outside temperatures are beyond sweltering.

Even TikToker Aussie Travelling Trio (@aussietravellingtrio) seemed amazed by how hot it could get in this part of central Australia.

“In Australia, it gets so f**king hot in the red center," he said.

The red center denotes the region of the Northern Territory in Australia, where the earth is a vivid ochre color.

He and his family live in Cooper Pedy, an opal mining town, midway between Alice Springs and Adelaide.

There are no natural building materials in this lunar-like landscape, so many families live underground.

He has learned there are huge advantages to this.

“Perfect for 50 degree summer days in Cooper Pedy.

“As you can see that’s the sandstone that’s been dug out. We put some bricks in to make other walls."

It was, he said "just one big tunnel."

This subterranean home offered welcome respite from the blistering heat: "It’s so cool down here."

His home was pretty unique too: “When you come out here, it’s carved into a kind of a mountain.

“Pretty bloody cool when it comes to 50 degrees."

There were no expensive cooling systems either: the surrounding rock was the only cooling presence required.

“It’s 23 degrees all year round. It felt like the air con was on as soon as you walked in," he said.

Commenters agreed, Cooper Pedy was a pretty cool place.
