The Man Cave
Yes You have all heard the term Man Cave before. It is a place a male can go to unwind, relax goof off or whatever. Commonly Man Caves are found in basements or garages.. What would bring me, a female, to write about such a topic? Lets just say I now get to experience the man cave first hand.
The Urban Dictionary gives several definitions to the concept of the man cave. Most definitions include the a man needed a space of his own or a place for an emotional outlet.
My significant other and I were looking to buy a house. We found one with appropriate amount of bedrooms and a large yard. Of course the selling point was a building that sat out by itself that intended to be a workshop. My man saw it and instantly he claimed it as his own. we bought the house and moved in. Before even all the boxes were unpacked inside the house he would be outside working on his man cave! Like a kid building a tree house, he would spend an hour or so every night furnishing or decorating his abode. The room inside the building is rather large complete with exhaust fan and air conditioner. The walls are lined with cardboard that serves as insulation. There are two rather long wooden shelves that my man is converting into beds. Eh? He is going to have company stay in the man cave?
We have been in our home three weeks now that the Man-cave has cable and a flat screen TV! Oddly he did not like my offer of a rug and halogen lamp... not manly enough?? He has told all of his friends about his new home and commonly refers to his new abode as the Doghouse! I am anxious to see how the "Doghouse" turns out...
When I googled the term Man-Cave I was surprised how popular it is right Now. I have included some websites and video on the topic. There are several websites dedicated to the Man Cave.. including a site from Do it Yourself. There is an entire show on how to make a Man Cave. Hmm I wonder if I could talk someone into coming over and helping my guy out.
