Default My Man Cave

Hello! New member here and I wanted to share some of my photos of my Man Cave - Poker Room - Smoking Lounge. Maybe it will inspire someone to take on a room of their own. I did all the work myself with the exception of the plumbing for the wet bar sink, the counter installation, and the texture spraying.

Background - my house was built in 2010 and for budget purposes left the space above the garage unfinished. I knew that someday it would end up being a spare bedroom or a man cave. Flash forward to 2014 - the wife encouraged me to move forward on building out the room as the kids were a bit older and there were no more in the outlook for us (5 is enough!).

Here are some before photos.

I had to frame out a couple of walls as well as the ceiling. Ran the electrical on 3 different circuits. Ran AV wires and CAT5e. Insulated. Hung drywall. Sliced a finger tip off. Drank copious amounts of beer.

Here it is set up for Poker Nights. Also the built in Humidor I added. I installed ventilation so I can smoke cigars in the room.

I will be doing two 84x42 tables in the next week or two. I have the custom felts already, just don't have the time! I've looked at the build threads - it's what led me to this site!

Ha! The humidor is my second favorite part of the cave. The beer taps are #1 and the poker chips are #3. I take it you smoke cigars?

Hell yes, we're both cigar nuts. You have custom chips? You must not have read the rules, you are required to post chip pr0n shots of your chips.

Love cigars!

Now the only other thing you need to qualify for a PMC lifelong membership is to have married above your pay scale.
