Man Caves?

Do you have one (or more?)?

Does your DH WANT one?

What does your DH want his man cave to be?

Back in 2007, man caves were considered to be a coming trend...

and we have done threads on "man rooms" often, usually in the guise of media rooms and surround sound systems - http://messageboards.ivillage.com/iv-hgfirsthome/?msg=1081.1 and http://messageboards.ivillage.com/iv-hgfirsthome/?msg=761.1 especially...

My Hubby has completely taken over our AZ room, so I guess you could call this his man cave, LOL. Sometimes I hide his HDTV clicker and laugh when he looks all over the room for it. ;o)


At least he does vacuum in there, all his stray pieces of pop corn, sunflower seeds and peanuts that fall down in his lazy-boy and on the floor under it, LOL. Now, if I could get him to mop the floor once a week and clean the bathroom

No man, no man cave. It's all MY cave ROFL!

I was reading about double/two office spaces as being "in". I've got an office space in my bedroom, and one official office on the ground floor.

My hubby does have the only extra room in our house as his office. He rebuilds computers as a hobby so it is so stuffed with that kind of stuff and his personal computer. I am sure he would love a larger man cave with a huge big screen TV and all the different kinds of gaming systems.

My Dh started out with one (his office, which is where he does his computer and photography thing) and then he started spreading out:

He has 1/3 of the basement room as his media room and he spends a lot of time down there with the lights off, listening to music VERY loud!

He has another 1/3 of the basement as his crafting area (he paints concrete plaques and sculptures)

He has at least 1/3 of the garage (one car's worth) for his gardening gear

and he has now spread to the new bedroom suite with a desk and table where he has been working on his garden designs!

I guess we don't have a man room situation here; we have a man house! LOL

Dh would love a man cave and I'd really love to make one for him some day. Right now our "extra" room is a playroom for the kids. Maybe when they're a bit older and don't have/need so many toys we can turn it into a man room for him.
