Let's see your Man caves!

Post by Nkoehn22 » Thu Feb 14, 2019 3:04 pm

My man cave is out in the garage, It started out with my work bench and a tv, and over the next 5 years grew to Sports Central. It was my Mac book pro connected to my TV for streaming my sports teams. Then it grew two multiple screens to hoot up to my mac book from good will. Then I decided, why not just upgrade to the size I really want and buy a pair of cheap flat screens to convert to monitors. Last spring I purchased a 200" max projector for movie nights / sports nights in the backyard with a fire. I got a cheap projection screen 100"and it worked well at night. Well we had storms where I was forced to bring the projector screen inside the garage. It ended up staying inside and i read up on screen color and purchased a gray screen that's 120" The Sony Receiver, and sub woofer from good will still works great (Pair for $50) and the speakers that were in the ceiling just had to be hooked up.(Not working from the previous owner.) I added outdoor speakers to the deck and patio. So now I have my Mac, with four external (individual screens) so five total, hooked up working flawlessly. So during the football season, I have my team on the big screen, the NFL Red Zone on one monitor, fantasy scores/ games on the other three.

Welcome to Pats Bar! Hand built everything you see. This is the moment I found out that writing with a hand-held Router against a vertical surface is .... interesting LOL. I had an Airhockey table in there also, but ended up getting rid of it as it never got used and took up space.

I guess I've actually have 2 man caves. My garage which I've posted a bunch of pics in "Lets see your Garage", and my media rm. that is home to 2 systems. 5.1 surround system and an incredible 2 channel analog system. I've done all the work myself but keep in mind I'm a professional cabinetmaker/carpenter.

GO LIIONS! :D

It's an acoustically transparent fabric that covers rigid mineral wool acoustic insulation. Helps with the room acoustics.

Just working with my "office" so far, but looking to grab/build a shuffleboard table for upstairs. Ikea Markus is a great chair and the monitors are already aged, mostly U2312HM's. Sennheiser HD650 with Schiit Modi 2.0/Magni 2.0 for cans. Still sitting on an old i7-2600k sandy bridge I built back in college, but it still works like a charm on stock speeds (moderate binned chip but don't need to OC). Drobo 4-bay setup with 3GB drives (12GB total) that have been holding strong. Obligatory painting with a twist canvas with the wife.

Closest thing I’ve got to a man cave. This is what I’ll miss the most about this house when we leave.
