It's been a good few weeks now since the power was switched on and I started to move my stuff into the man cave. Sadly I haven't had opportunity to share the 'finished' results with you yet. This was pretty much after I moved about 65% of my junk into the shed, what's left in the back room has still to be sorted but although the shed look quite full it still needed another sift of what was needed, what could be chucked and a lot of the storage areas weren't filled or had not been optimised to their best. I'm still confident I'll get it all in but there's a lack of urgency now which is a bit worrying. I will endeavour to make the final transition this weekend and remove all my stuff from the back room so we can look at decorating/moving the dining table inside.
I have to say its a very weird feeling sitting in exactly the same environment but transplanted to a different location, it was so odd I asked my son to sit in the chair to see if he agreed, and he did!
So you can tell there's really no room to play a game in here but it's kind of cosy, I just need to sort out curtains or and tweek the door frame so it's more draft-proof. The weather has just started to turn autmnal, I've had a painting session which was cold but the little electric oil radiator I have warmed things up pretty quick. I'm looking forward to the first cold snap so I can see how chilly it actually gets.
Looking good dave - I wish I had room for a man cave like that! As it is I have to share the garage with the spare fridge/freezer and the tumble dryer, plus leaving room to get the bins through on a weekly basis. Room to actually paint has been almost non-existent since we moved our eldest daughter into what was the guest room where I had a painting table. Think I need to colonise a part of the loft!ReplyDelete
Hope it doesn't get too cold when the winter hits!
Our alternative to the man cave was the garage but it just fills up with junk much like you describe. I'm ashamed to say a lot of it is also hobby stuff, my abandoned Armies on Parade board revamp for one and my Realm of Battle board for another.Delete
The heater is quite effective I just need some curtains up to make it more cosy ;)
We should make it a thing - bloggers show us their man caves!Delete
Looks great Dave nice to see where the magic happens, My man caves the box room (3rd bedroom) it's ok although space is a little tight and could do with a shelving unit for all the bits plus miniatures.ReplyDelete
You will have put some thermals on your Xmas list fella ;)
Where the magic happens, it's like cribs! I need to do a photosphere so you can get a better feeling for the place.Delete
That looks extremely comfortable for hobbying in! Though I feel you should convert your desk to look like a bastion... Or cogitator interface...ReplyDelete
