Thats what the sink is for at the bar.


Also I would suggest not getting a pool table unless you play alot. Nice to have but takes up so much room.


you piss in your own sink? wow, I typically only do that at other people's houses!

They actually have one in that room now. I don't want one.

One of the bonus rooms we looked at. The bottom 8 is probably more like a 10 or 11.

I'm not convinced on the picture yet for projector. Plasma is still the best IMO...but I don't need that size anyway.

I have a Panasonic projector. The only downside is you need it to be dark for the best picture. So, my living room is literally a cave.

Outside of that, its awesome.

The parts that make up a man cave are pretty obvious, TV, Pool table, etc. So I'll take the next step:

What theme are you going for?

Personally I'd give my mancave an overarching theme that's very telling of you. What kills me is when someone has way too much stuff in their cave, and none of it agreeing. Golf clubs over here, Porsche pictures over there, Log cabin motif for the bar, and a modern entertainment center. You don't want your cave to look like the walls of an Applebee's.

Couple ideas I've had for when I have my own place:

-My grandfather flew Corsairs in Korea, and I got a lot of his Navy paraphernalia when he passed (Flight Jacket, Helmet, Headphones, Model aircraft carrier, various and sundry paintings of planes and ships), so I've always considered having a Navy themed bar with that stuff on display.
-A Panthers cave is pretty obvious, but it's so hard to find Panthers stuff in D.C., it would be a pain in the ass to stock it.
-Egyptian (although Ozymandias from Watchmen did it already), Comic books, American Muscle cars, beer, and Poland, to name a few.

If you can't have naked women in it whenever you want, it's not really a man cave when you have to give half of it to your wife when she divorces you.

Just my 2 cents. :D

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.


Throw in a full band set-up and theres my dream.
