You’ve seen examples of other men’s caves (not a euphemism) and now it’s time to build your own. There is nothing more freeing and relaxing than disappearing into your cave and enjoying some man time. The problem isn’t that you want a cave – it’s where to build the cave. A lot of average homes don’t have room for a pool table or a home theatre so space is a factor. However, if you are determined you can make it happen. Here are the best locations for your new man pad.
Can you park your car on the drive or the main road? If you can there is no need to worry about parking it in your garage. This isn’t an easy sell for all the men who live with partners. But if you want it you will persuade them that the car doesn’t need its own pad; you do! A garage is a great location because it has all the features you need in one place. It is a nice space, it is indoors (always a bonus), and you don’t have to do much to make it look magnificent. A little restructuring and a lick of paint and you will be ready to spend some time alone. Bliss!
Whatever you call the free space in the roof isn’t important. What isn’t arbitrary is the fact that it is free space that you aren’t using. Unlike the garage it has no practical use other than storing a few boxes, and you can always store them elsewhere. What it doesn’t have is the ease of the garage. Moving into the garage is easy but moving into the attic takes a lot of hard work. First of all you have to make it safe, and then you have to clean it and make it homely. Finally, you have to get all the cool stuff upstairs. It sounds like hard work, and it is, but it is worth it in the end.
Your shed might seem appealing for a number of reasons. For starters it is damp and wet and they two things you don’t want in your man cave. That is unless you plan on moving into an actual cave and then they are exactly what you want. Secondly sheds are cold, and thirdly you have to leave the house to access the shed. These are all relevant points but there are remedies. For example a portable heater will clear up the damp and make it warmer. There is a lot of space in a shed and that makes it perfect for a man pad.
The ultimate cave deserves the ultimate location which is why you should think about another property. Wouldn’t it be nice to look at private hunting and fishing ranches for sale and turn one into the ultimate pad? Just think about owning your own ranch where you can do whatever you want in peace. It would be amazing. Although it might sound idealistic you can find properties that are cheap that will do the job.
At the end of the day you only need a space that you can fill with your personality.
