Converting garage into a man cave.


I'm converting a two car garage into a man cave and have someone coming to give me a price. What musts should I go with? Definitely putting in a bathroom, custom made bar with a sink and big screen on the wall. Anything else that y'all think would be a good idea while I am talking to the guy that will do the work. The garage is in a location of the house where it isnt practical to store cars in, so I've just been using it for storage.

Well I do plan on fricking my male friends in there soooooo. Man cave gay? What would you suggest that would be more manly? I think it's gay that you think a man cave or converting any room into something is gay. I bet you were raped by sanduskey in his rape basement when you were little and are now homophobic of man caves.

The bathroom I was going to do was just going to be a sink and toilet. It's in the backyard next to the pool and the closest bathroom is in the middle of the house, so the bathroom will be primary when using the pool. I am going to put flooring down that water can be tracked on and cleaned up easily.

re: Converting garage into a man cave.


sincerely, use your garage to organize your "outside stuff" and park your vehicles in it. how big is your house?

re: Converting garage into a man cave.


The house is 2900-3000 square feet and then the garage is another 200 maybe (standard two car). I am making part of the garag storage that will be walled off from the rest of it. But, the garage is in the back of the house and we have the back driveway filled with kids stuff that blocks driving in the garage. and the cars we now have dont both fit in the. As much as I love the garage and storage, it is wasted space because it isnt functional as a true garage. so converting it into smaller storage and a man room was what I was thinking.

but don't spare it. Everyone I've seen that axed plans for a bathroom in an outdoor space has regretted it.

That's your attempt at humor?


Seriously, a "man-cave"? Where do you people get this shit?

Why call it that? just call it a den. That's all they are.

I bet you want to fill the stupid thing with LSU memorabilia that thousands of idiots have because they ordered a reprint of the sports page form the advocate, and get a replica of a few jerseys with numbers of a few players.

Your paint will be purple with yellow trim, or vice-versa.


You'll also have a picture of Drew Brees and a few miniature replicas of the crystal footballs.

An extremely small wet-bar with jack, crown, jim beam, and maybe a vodka or two. Actually, it'll have vodka and redbull overflowing the cabinets. And a bottle of Jager in the mini-fridge.

If you are really ambitious, you'll put in a kegerator. It will be filled with Heinieken.


Extra points for a pic of any MMA fighter. Or MMA logo.


It'll be very original my man.

Be a real man and put a urinal smack dab in the middle of the room.
