    Most of us have shown off our She caves..........Now..........

    It's time to see the man cave.........

    This is my husband's playground. We are outside moving gravel around to stem the mud that accumulates during the rain and snow melt in spring.
    So I had the brilliant idea of taking a picture of his cave. This is where he creates all the goodies for my sewing caves.

    I invite y'all to show off our wonderful husband's workshop/playgrounds.

    Thanks, that is his baby. It's a 1953 Ford f-100 sitting on a 1979 Ford Bronco chassis.

    No man here, so no man cave. Only males in my house are a spoiled boy cat and a sweet dachshund boy.

    Sweet! And it's so nice and clean and orderly. I'd be ashamed to show any of my husband 's areas. He's a messy packrat.

    Right now, I'm hogging most of the man cave for my cars. LOL. The "man" has his 34 ford street rod in the shop, so I'm using his space. The only vehicle he has in there is his motorcycle. And it's WAY more crowded and not nearly as neat as your garage. I take part of the blame for that. We show cars and I have a ton of show stuff and some parts from my 66 Mustang cluttering it up.

    I have 3 dachsie boys. They're the best!

    My husband is like me, we both hate messy work areas. Also it cuts down on a lot of tripping accidents, things getting in the dogs paws etc.

    He lays pieces of carpet down so those 3 spoiled girls of ours can nap near "Grampa". Between all 3 we sweep up enough dog hair we can make dog wigs ..........lol

    I have to agree with Doggramma, I would be ashamed to post a picture of my DH's shop. He is the most disorganized person and is always hunting for something and wants me to help him find it.

    Once a chipmunk ran in the back door and ran down into the basement. I though OMG it will die down there in that junk! But it came back up with a dust bunny on its head and my daughter and I were able to shoo it back out.

    Nice man cave, clean is always good and I like all the lights. My Husband does not have a hobby, so no man cave for him. He only works outside on lawns, trimming hedges building something. He has the living room and TV to himself.

    Nice, looks like a 1952 or 53 Chevy there. Oops missed the make, but knew it had to be one of those two years. I didn't read all the posts before I replied. Thanks for sharing.

    I myself made my DH man cave, he has his computer for playing some type of solitaire, looking up You Tube and stats on Nascar races. It also has his own TV, filing cabinet, amplifier, Drum machine, stool to sit in while playing his guitar, a music stand and microphone. My sewing room is on the other side of the 6/8' tall wall. I love listening to him play & sing while I sew.

    When we bought our last house the priorities were a big shop for DH and big sewing area for me. We didn't care much about the other rooms at all. Our kids were still home and didn't get a say about the house. They thought they would be getting big rooms too. Poor kids.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.
