    Ohhhhh......Yea........
    The ultimate ManCave is coming! A 18' X 16' big ultimate motorcycle making party shop! How will I decorate thee?
    What strange two-wheeled abominations shall exit the shop? Muaaaaaaaaahhhh!!

    First, no shop (or at least basement bedroom) would be complete without this:

    Just in case Voltar comes over, I better make the place cool.

    My Wife designed the shop, we had a the slab, framing and roof done for us.
    Now it is up to us to side, paint and finish out the shop.
    We got the door and windows in (some of which are covered with polygal sheets for privacy).

    Today, we prepped for spraying the trim and siding. The upper section is extra storage.

    The immediate goal is to get the outside completely painted and sided. After that, comes electrical work and sheet rock.


    ManCave update: Cypress horizontal siding is up, and we painted the doors and some trim.
    The home theater, walk-in humidor, and stripper pole are in too!

    Fanciest Man Cave I've ever seen. A place like that needs a name. How about Avonlea, Fairfield Cottage, or Lindisfarne Manor :lol3 . Just kidd'n, very nice...

    Very nice Man Cave. Unfortunately in my area, nothing would be left inside within a few weeks. My man cave has no windows on the ground floor for that reason.

    wow, nice, but awfully fancy for a man cave.

    is there some sort of term for a metrosexual-man cave?

    AUSTIN???? well that sez it all I guess.
    Were any spotted seven legged twig spiders harmed during the construction?
    What percentage of the construction materials are recycled?
    Please list the other GREEN features, by law there should be at least 4, before someone turns you in.

    Exactly. As soon as I saw the contemporary achitecture I know there must have been a hippie behind it.

    At least he'll be able to find plenty of willing Yellow Rose employees to occupy that pole.

    I am impressed. Very nice. This is my modest beginning to my Man Cave. Pool Table, fridge, darts, and my GS as Art wall. I am also building a craps table, which is in progress on the pool table. Behind the camera is a workbench for any other hobbies I need room for.

    Most Excellent GSALite, perhaps my cave-homies can come over and play?
    They are helping with the Cave-Indians.

    GSA, I love your BMW wall art. Possibly a broken final drive milled in half, might look cool. Great room.

    Great idea. It is a constant work in progress. I keep adding stuff as I find, or break, more things. Helps pass time when the snow is two feet deep. :D

    ManCave update! Our local fabricator whipped up a custom ramp for the shop.... no more fear of dropping a bike!
    I used to have paving stones stacked up for a ramp... this is way better.
