Default The Mancave Build Thread........




I have not poured any concrete yet, but I did go ahead and get the sign ready to go over the door.

Still working the blueprints and engineering...........

Probably going to be ICF........it will be my full time residence, with a gun safe and rod racks in the foyer, a real wood burning stove, concrete floors and rustic just like the sign.


The lot is across the street from the water, but has ownership in a waterfront lot (1 block away on a quiet street) with a nice ramp and a fishing swimming pier behind a locked gate !










Felines are welcome anytime !

Just took a pic of my new mancave. Not quite finished and need to hook up a TV (top right corner). BTW, for those few of you who know where I live, it ain't at the house so don't go poking around.

damn.... I got bogged down on my project

I keep flip flopping on the design

I can build a hell of a shop with a nice 1 bedroom 1 bath apartment inside it, or build a nice 2 bedroom 2 bath fun house.

The nice shop with an apartment would be so nice, BUT Damn....a nice crib with a cool kitchen and living room would maybe assist is attracting a quality feline....and also have some fantastic weekend parties

I'm just throwing the idea out there Nat, are you sure the kitchen/ bedroom idea isn't telling such a perspective feline that you'll be spending a ton of time out in the shop..........doesn't that imply, not with her?

Did a quick search, and only got this thread, but wasn't there a multi-page thread on mancaves a few months back?

1 BR/1Bath on a waterfront/waterview lot does not make $en$e to me.
