If its a place with minimal (Like 2 or less.) or no windows I'd say go HD projector, then have a side TV. I've seen it done before. That way you can have the game on the projector, and can play xbox or have another game going too.


I like this idea

I recently bought a new house, 4th room FROG turned into the Man-Room.

-46 inch Sharp HD LCD
-Direct TV with NFL Ticket and all movie channels.
-Xbox 360, Wii - with Rockband setup
-Sony receiver with 5 speaker 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound.
-5 disc Sony DVD player (blu-Ray upgrade whenever they get cheaper)
-Shaper Image Message Chair
-Fooseball Table (full size)
-I built a dartboard set up, a 3x3 corkboard, halogen spotlight shinning on dartboard, old school chalk board for keeping score.
-I built a bar, which I stained and polyed. It measures 10 ft long.
-I found a bunch of unique, hand-painted wooden beer signs from a closed down bar. They are very unique looking. Classy, something that you dont see everyday.

I have 2 crawl space attic access doors located on either side of the room. I am eventually going to run all the wire through the walls. Also, I am going to mount the TV on the wall and hide all the boxes in the closet.

As far as an office, I have converted a room downstairs, I guess it should be a formal living room. I bought a huge U-shape wooden desk. It is quite large, and very nice.

How big is your room?

One of my top five purshases was a projector. 105 incher at faction of price. i used avsforum (may still be golden). the nerds over there are serious and have lots of ideas and information. I can dig up other websites, if you want me too. I HIGHLY recommend buying a projector. pros/cons to all. #1 is always money. goodluck

My preferred spot has a 500-600 s.f man cave room. If this becomes a reality I will post a floor plan.

I have shied away from the projector setup but I am open to ideas

you really shouldn't call it a work area.......no work will ever get done when it is in a Man Cave way too many distractions, you would be better off making another room or closing a litle section off in the bonus room for a work area

Work area? Are you really gonna wanna do work in there?


The "Work Area" is so he can shut the door and tell his wife he is working. Well thought out and played fine sir.

Every guy needs his mancave.

Mine is the basement:

60" Plasma
Surround Sound
Blueray Player
CD Player
PS3 and Wii (kids play this the most)
Pooltable
Foosball Table
Airhockey Table
Leather sectional couch
Panthers and Beer Neon Signs
3 Vintage Arcade Games

Wife is not even allowed down the stairs....except to let the dog out the back door.
