Man cave

Postby dream_017 » Wed Sep 14, 2005 9:33 am

Well guys, this was in the local paper this morning. Isn't this every guys dream to decorate the basement exactly how you want it. We just had a house built 2 years ago, so I am still working on mine, but just wanted to hear what you guys think are necessities or things that you have done.

a simple list

recliner
couch
big screen
pool table
poker table
dart board
wet bar
secondary TV by the bar

and don't forget to have a bathroom downstairs. nothing is worse than having to walk upstairs during the game to go.

That's pretty much my Dad's basement, and it works out perfect ;-D

On fall Sundays, he's usually watching the Lions on his 52-inch screen high-definition TV. Hernandez has season tickets at Ford Field, but he says the Man Cave lets him enjoy the game just as much from home


I guess watching the Lions games this way, no one can see him crying :-o

Add a stripper pole to the list and to include said strippers

Perfect list..... Ill add a couple things to that.

1. Pinball Machine
2. Sound proof ceiling tiles, or sound proofing between the tiles and the ceiling.
3. Memorabilia for the Walls(i.e. Barry Sanders/Stevie Y jerseys)

This is someone with a plan. Good job Teck ;-D

One of the reason we built the house we did was the space in the basement. I have the plans ready, just not the budget at the time. It is coming together slowly(carpet and some wiring). My plans include:
Multiple raised TV's
Stadium seating
2 fridges
small TV by the bar
bar
poker room(with 2 tables)
memorabilia
