The shed is 45’ x 20’ high with 13’ ceilings (13.5 metres x 6 metres with 4 metre ceilings). In addition that that area there is also an annex at the back that is used for storage and will continue to be used as such.
They’ve had a good start with picking up gear for the man cave. So far they have acquired:
- Large Rear Projection TV
- Comfortable Couch
- Ping Pong Table
- Air Hockey Table
- Sportcraft 3-Point Throwdown Basketball Game
They’ve also got a line on a dart board and possibly a pool table. Of course I reckon no man cave is complete without proper man cave signs, which will probably need to be custom made (I reckon a man cave neon sign is a bit excessive, I prefer the wooden variety).
It’s a huge area to work with and really quite a dream space to work with. The walls are partially covered with plaster board / drywall. There is also ample power points in the shop and cable television has been run into the shop. The future man cave is within range of the wireless network from the house, although it might benefit from a wireless signal extender (like the Hawking HWREN1 Hi-Gain Wireless-300N Range Extender) mounted on the wall closest to the house. In one corner it looks like there has been some plumbing roughed in for a small bathroom / toilet.
We’ve been inspired with man cave ideas by sites like:
- PerfectManCave (www.perfectmancave.com) which has some great ideas
- The Art of Manliness which has a good article of 14 Famous Man Rooms (http://artofmanliness.com/2010/07/27/famous-man-caves/) I especially like Mark Twain’s Billiards Room
But we feel like we at a bit of an impasse with what to do in setting up such a large area as the ultimate man cave. So we wanted to as you …
If this was yours, what would you do to make this space into the ultimate man cave?
