Work in progress.

I am angrily jealous.

/I only have the wizard, but its in better shape than any other one I have seen


My wizard was in the ice rink at Jantzen Beach, so it has a few marks where some little bastard kicked it with the skates. I bought it and Capt. in 1980. I had 3 Capt. Fantastic to choose from. $300 each. Should have bought all 3.

the thing that bothers me the most about people with too much money is they always have the worst taste.

mine's not big enough for a pool table, but it has a dart board, one wall is painted as a chalkboard, it has a bar, refrigerator, with music-related art on the pine green walls.

inotherwords, i can't compete with these rich bastards.

A lot of those look like restaurants or Brooklyn/New Jersey basements in the mid-1970s.

My favorite man cave was the basement of the house around the block from me when I was little. Mr. Pizzuto had a really large model train set there and it was a real treat when his daughter, our babysitter, let us come over and run the trains around.
 
2013-01-18 02:14:48 PM
What I didn't see in any of those man caves were power tools. Whatever. My cave features the following:

650 sq ft wood shop
60" TV
fitness room
home brewery
144 bottle wine cellar

The girls can have the upper floors, the basement is all mine.

My wife watches those idiotic house-hunting shows on HGTV...therefore I endure them.

Everytime the dopey husband walks down into the basement to the sad little bar, and big TV with overstuffed sofa and says 'Finally, the man-cave!' I say to myself, and often out loud, 'What a farking douche.'

Men, acting like little boys, playing in the basement, spending their time watching other men chase balls around on TV, because their wives are the boss of the house, and they need permission to do what they want...oh, and to avoid their families (and, by proxy, responsibilities).

Grow-up gents, this is why we're not taken seriously anymore.

/Yes, I have over-thought this.

Multiple accounts for RAF is my guess. It was (is?) the easiest way to powerlevel a new toon. Plus, two-boxing a healer is great for dungeon grinds.

BAMFinator: Instead of a man cave, what about a sex den?


this. I proposed an idea to my wife that our next house should be a 5 bedroom(we only need 4 bedrooms for our family) where we take the bedroom adjacent to the master and make half of it a lounge study area, and the other half into a hidden sex room only accessible thru a hidden door in the master bedroom closet.

it was shot down immediately.

Maybe next time I will propose we have a "safe room" in case there is a home invasion or something. Play the safety angle, "for the kids".

I see only one mancave in that list. The rest are primping grounds for 1%ers who fancy themselves masculine by adorning their walls with sporting memorabilia.

Almet: Now I want to work on my man cave this weekend. It needs a serious declutter and clean.


And don't forget a serious session of organizing your cleaning materials. Those things can get out of hand real fast. I recommend pegboard to keep things tidy, and it also offers opportunities for personal expression.

noticed this was already addressed... i suffer the same fate.

but, on the subject of those stupid home buying shows, what surprised me more than the mention of man caves are the kitchens. everytime the couple goes in the kitchen, it's always the guy who says, yeah, I love this kitchen, i could really cook in here. the women, not so much.

if it was me and my wife, we'd both be like, yeah, awesome kitchen. we both like to cook. but, my wife cares a lot more than me about the size and appearance of the kitchen (i worked in a restaurant with about a square yard of space to operate 4 ovens, 8 burners, and a cutting board, so space is not a big deal if you prep right and now what you're doing -- i only care about function). plus, i'm bored of all this open concept bullshiat. put the kitchen in the back like some slave quarters, if you're really cooking, the last thing you want are all your guests farking with you. plus, this way they won't know how hard you worked. it's no fun to be a guest thinking that your host is really putting themselves out. i think all this open concept stuff is rather selfish and against the notion of hospitality. prep right, carefully plan your operation, and execute while no one is looking. everyone ends up happier.

/ hmm... that was a digression. sorry. i guess those house buying shows are starting to get to me... i guess i need a doucherific mancave... or garage as i knew it growing up.

Apparently on Fark, if you can afford to furnish a room, you're a 1%er.

Only a handful of those looked like they were really expensive to create.

The pure mancave concept is somewhat flawed, in that you create an adversarial relationship with your wife. It's your space and the items in it are yours, which in turn reduces the incentive she has to tolerate or approve large scale purchases. Rather I proposed everything as entertaining area and made concessions to my wife. Thus it become a jointly budgeted item and my purchasing power for items increased. In addition I also had a certain amount of control in that I can work power tools and she can't. Make a couple of concessions about the decor, paint colors, etc, and it will serve you well.

Also way too many of those ultimate man rooms only have one screen. These days 15 to 17 inch flap panel monitors (or small) are cheap to buy new and often dirt cheap if you can find a company that just upgraded everyone and is dumping them. I picked up 18 of them that I'm looking to build into various surfaces around the room and I'll connect them into three media PCs using splitters. Program one PC to cycle between various scoreboards (really just Chrome in full screen mode visiting a bunch of websites in a specific area) and the other two groups displaying other games of interest via ESPN3 or another streaming option. This weekend I'm planning to custom build a coffee table where three groups of three monitors are angled to face all three sides of a U arrangement of couches. Big giant table in the center you can load down with food and 15 inch monitors at a 45 degree angle on the sides.

pute kisses like a man: plus, i'm bored of all this open concept bullshiat. put the kitchen in the back like some slave quarters, if you're really cooking, the last thing you want are all your guests farking with you. plus, this way they won't know how hard you worked. it's no fun to be a guest thinking that your host is really putting themselves out. i think all this open concept stuff is rather selfish and against the notion of hospitality. prep right, carefully plan your operation, and execute while no one is looking. everyone ends up happier.


Personally I'm a big fan of having what basically amounts to a wet bar with an oven, a cook top (plus a fridge and freeze) near the entertainment area. That way you can keep things warm or finish fully cooking something right before serving it, but the kitchen proper is elsewhere. If I'm having people over I do my prep in the kitchen and get it to the point where it it just needs heat to be ready, move it over to the wet bar and cycle dishes in and out of the oven as you need them. You can have twelve dozen wings all marinated and ready to go, but just bake them two dozen at a time.

Ha! Pachinko machines! Awesome. I have one that's older than I am (parents were going to toss it!)... gotta get around to fixing it up someday.

MrSteve007: I prefer my "man-cave" to be mobile and float.


Also, this! That looks comfy. Perhaps too comfy for my tastes, but I have weird tastes. Nice photo, too.

I vote for "'both' instead of 'which'." My mobile, floating cave doesn't have the 500+bottle wine cellar / 5 beers on tap / MAME cab / foosball that my non-floating option does... have to settle for consuming growlers at 10+kts under main alone. As for the "must be nice to be rich" comments, every element of the toy collection was sourced -cheap- from some poor, dumb bastard being made to sell his stuff by his wife. My better half calls it all "powered by husband-tears." : )

Not a big fan of a super-sports-theme-y motif, though. Tacky to me, unless you played on or were otherwise employed by the team.... but to each their own.

Three Crooked Squirrels: While I do appreciate these "Man Caves", the term "Man Cave", in my opinion, is incredibly lame.

Aye. It sounds like it should be a cavern full of rent boys. Truly awful.

The many home bars remind me of this sketch from Chewin the Fat as an example of it being a terrible idea.

Mine is a 20x25 two car garage.  I am able to fit a bar size pool table, a pinball machine, an arcade video game, an elec. drum kit, a bar, a small table with two benches, several guitars and amps, PA speakers, several mic stands, an entertainment center my dad built with my sterio in it, two large shelves (one filled with 3500 LPs) and a desk with my computer and assorted other stuff like the diorama model I'm working on now on it.  I'm not rich.  It has taken me years to amass all of this stuff.  A good Den/study/studio is not built in a month.

SFSailor: Not a big fan of a super-sports-theme-y motif, though. Tacky to me, unless you played on or were otherwise employed by the team.... but to each their own.


Really any motif is bad IMHO. You go down there to watch some movie and the autographed hockey stick you hung right beside the projector screen seems out of place during LOTR. On the other hand the lovingly made life sized model of Aragon is damn creepy while watching the Rose Bowl. I'd say focus on decorating with natural light, but have a blackout level option built in for movie night or the like.

The other think a lot of people miss is that a half bath off the man cave is indeed awesome, but spring for some extra sound dampening material so your movie isn't interrupted by the sound of Jimmie struggling to flush a floater. Also acoustic material to block out the annoying sounds of the furnace is a must.

10+kts under main? Nice! Yeah, my pocket cruiser Hunter wouldn't get close to that, unless I were in a hurricane. But alas, as you point out, she's more for comfort than speed.

I agree with the 'guys a douche' sentiment, and rather pathetic too, and with the 'open kitchen is meh' thing.

I can see an open kitchen being good for daily family grinds, so while X makes dinner everyone else sits around and chats (my family did something along those lines), rather than trapping X in the kitchen for hours away from the family entirely.
