In the fall of 2018, a construction worker from Mexico took a video of a home on the outskirts of Albuquerque and uploaded it to YouTube.
His video quickly went viral, drawing more than 7 million views and counting.
He’s now in Mexico, working on a documentary about the home.
“We were talking about the house, and he said ‘I want to make a film about the place,'” said Mark Pineda, who co-directs the documentary with Pinedas family friend, David Pinedo.
“So we just kept working, and we got there.”
“I’m really excited,” Pinedi said of his work with the Pinedos.
“It’s going to be the first time we’ve ever been in a home with our own movie.”
Pineds home is a four-bedroom, 2.5-bath ranch in the heart of the Albuquerque foothills.
In addition to a film crew, Pinedes crew is also filming an interview with a local filmmaker who wants to film an interview for a film on the house.
The Pinedoses will also be working with a group of friends who were living in the house when they were born and now have been living in a new home in the foothills for the past year.
“I don’t know how I’m going to do it, I can’t,” said Pinede.
“But I have to do this, otherwise, I’m not going to make any money.”
Pino said his family has been living on the property for the last five years, and they plan to stay in the property and use the equipment for the project.
“They’ve been there a couple of months, and it’s been a great experience,” said Mark.
“My wife and I are in the trailer all the time, watching movies and stuff.”
They’re also filming a documentary, and Pineduas will be making a documentary of his own.
“This is really a little brotherhood,” Pino added.
“All the crew is brothers, and that’s really the whole purpose.”
The Pines, who have a 6-year-old daughter, have been using the house to raise their family since moving in.
Mark said they plan on having a family reunion later this year, which will be a fun one.
“The house is just the most beautiful,” Mark said.
“You can just go outside, play, and go hiking or something.”
