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…
He also got the deck on the side and the back. We still have to pressure wash the wood and stain it and add a railing. We are thinking we are going to add a railing like this..
He likes that it doesn’t obstruct the view and I like the manly feel of it.
I think this is kinda fun too…
That will have to be a summer project.
There is also going to be a covered porch off of the deck in the back, so that has to happen first.
These are all of the old boards that we took out of the building that ry cleaned as is letting dry so we can use them to plank this wall…
They will also be used to plank the fireplace bump out from floor to ceiling….
as for the rest of the walls ryan has been busy planking those with 1/4″ plywood.
and this is the last wall to go..
then once that is done, we will spray all of the planking in a darker gray color, and then put up the old barn wood and plank the ceiling! I still swoon over those beams in there.
Although it looks like there is a ways to go yet, for us it feels like the home stretch! From here on out we get to make everything pretty. Cover up the old and bring in the new!!
Ryans hoping to get a good amount of time to work on it this weekend, so hopefully we’ll have some more pics to show soon!
As for now, I’ll leave you with the view…although it’s dead, the buds are coming and I can’t wait to enjoy this space when that happens!!!
