MAN CAVE UPDATE

Well the man cave is almost complete.   We tried to get as much of it done as we could before we started the addition.  And there was quite a bit we had done before that I never updated you on.  So I thought I’d share with you where it’s at today. We added this bar table behind the sectional that we made out of 2×4’s and some pipe legs Ryan got from work. It works great for extra seating and also for … Continue Reading »

AND THEN THERE WAS FURNITURE….AND A DEAD DEER

I know I should be posting more frequent updates on the man cave, as things are progressing.  But there are only so many hours in the day……and I can’t find the rest:)  So, a lot has been going on.  We got the floors in…yay!  We chose to do pine 1×10’s.  We went back and forth between laminate, faux wood tile, and pine, and finally decided on pine, for a number of reasons. 1.)  It was the least expensive. 2.)  It was the most … Continue Reading »

PROGRESS ON THE MANCAVE

Well, a lot has been going on in that little man cave of mine…I mean Ryan’s…  :) It’s coming along so well that I kind of want to claim it for myself!  But alas, soon dead animals will inhabit it and I may have to hand over the torch. *sigh* So the last I showed you on here, was when Ryan had finished the planking but hadn’t painted anything yet.  It looked like this… and if you have been following along with me … Continue Reading »

PROGRESS ON THE MANCAVE

Slowly but surely Ryans dream man cave is moving along.  If you remember back at this post, I shared where we’ve come so far. Since then Ryan has almost completely finished the outside of the building.  It went from this… to now looking a bit more finished like this… He got the new roof on, the door in, and the siding done.  Not to mention some christmas lights up:)  Time for those puppies to come down I think. And here’s the side view… … Continue Reading »

MAN CAVE INSPIRATION — RUSTIC INDUSTRIAL

So my goal with this man cave was to give Ryan a very masculine “rustic” look, instead of a dead animal log cabin feel:)  He has a log cabin waaaaaaayyy up north that is darling and I love the feel, but I wanted this to be something different.   A little more refined maybe.  And a tiche more “trendy.”  Since rustic, wood and antlers is so popular right now, I’m super excited to incorporate Ry’s animals and give him a super cozy, rustic, … Continue Reading »

MAN CAVE PROGRESS

We’ve been at it again. Renovating. And although I wish it was on the house, it’s not.  It’s been a little cute out building that Ry had his eye on to be his “man cave” since we moved here.  It actually used to be an old grainery and when we were doing demo we found old newspapers in the walls from over 100 years ago.  So much history.  And although I loved the character and chippy paint and old windows of this little … Continue Reading »
