I don't have a mancave. My girlfriend and I both enjoy video games so much we based our livingroom and bedroom around it together and went from there. I could acutally take a few pictures of our current setup(s) but it's a bit too dark now... I'll be back later with some video game goodness.

Cost me around 3 grand not including the shed or furniture. Shed is 12 x 14. When I first started I didn't know what the outcome was going to be....and not going to lie, it was time consuming and hard at times.(it got really hot in there as I was building that loft) .....but I was once told....nothing worth while is easy.....so I just kept at it.....and the results were better then I thought it would be.....so i'm thankful.

I spy an expensive-looking microscope... But why is it on your bed? Studying e.coli in your sleep?

What light(s) are you using behind the flat screen tv?

Nice setup by the way.

Nice use of a shed for sure! Do you have it set on a slab or blocks, and how far away from your main house is it?

Ha....no reason, I use it to work on circuit boards.

GermanyChris is correct.....they are from Ikea. I ended up with three LED plugs and three off/on switches after I installed them through the wall...which was then a pain to turn them off/on.

The solution? A surge protector....with a wireless remote...found at home depot. Put the remote anywhere you want and turn the LED's on/off anywhere from the room. Works great.

Its on top of steel beams....and about 6 feet away from the sliding doors at the back of my house.

This is Hans Zimmers man cave.
Go through all the effort of having a beautiful looking room with very nice stained wood around a DATA RACK and cant even keep the rack tidy? Its not hard and that would drive me insane.
Every time I see a data rack like that thats something I have control over, I go OCD and have to fix it, even at least a little bit (I'm a electronic security technician).

I agree it's a rat's nest.

Everything I ever post in picture threads is an absolute embarrassment compared to everyone else. None of which is helped by my near-trademark terrible quality photos.

It's awful, tiny, simple and uncomfortable, but this is my hide-y hole. (...The utility closet.)

Please have mercy.

Thumb resize.

One of these I'll put up some posters or... something. All the stuff under the desk and on the shelves has nowhere else to go, though...

It's all good - sure its not as glam as some of the photos but its your hide away that counts.

I have a bit of a silly question for you, but here it goes;

As a new homeowner, I am pretty meticulous about how things look (and rather tidy). You seem to be much of the same based on the quick snapshots, but I wanted to see if you had any problems with noticing dust or anything of the sort (fur from cats, etc.) all over the dark wood floor?
