The Man Cave Project

MONKY

So I now have a place to live, time to put down some roots and of course build my “Man-Cave”
I’m going to document the process so you can see my progress.
So lets start off with the main room.

mc1
This room is approximately six metres by four metres.
The plan at the moment to use it as a staging post for when we get our old house contents delivered and then I get to use it. I want to get rid of the old radiator system and install Infra red heaters, this will get rid of the pipe work running across the ceiling. For the floor I have some rather nice parquet floor acquired from a previous job.
The next room is my workshop.

mc3
This is about three metres by three metres.
The plan is to have a laser cutting machine here, a spray booth and table space for my glass and mosaic work.
Next up is garage number two.
mc5

mc6
This room is about three metres wide and nine metres long.
The main issue with this space is that it is damp. We are going to look into this. If it is viable then the plan is to remove the garage door and put a door and a glass wall there, the space there will be used to store and service our bicycles. The rest of the space will then be my workshop and the now workshop will be a music room with piano, guitars (and amps), computer music studio (Reason) and hifi.
This is all long term, number one priority is workshop so I can work on the house and then “Man-Cave”.
As I said I will keep posting progress reports here.
