Dreaming of a Man Cave
Do you have a coworker, a brother, a neighbor who has the garage to dream of? Is it a workshop that you find yourself drooling over every time you think of it?
Are you situated such that you have some property to build every man’s dream, a place where you can have what you want and do what you please?
Yes, ladies, this is for the guys. Or, perhaps, you ladies might consider continuing reading this and surprise your significant other with this idea and encourage him to pursue it!
It would, after all, get him out of your hair for a while.
Us men love our space. Most of us love to get dirty working on cars or trucks, wrenching on the lawn equipment, and building the tree house for the kids.
Let’s look at some practical ideas to turn this dream into a reality.
While your home may have an attached garage, the chances are that it is limited in space. Once you park one or two vehicles in there it leaves little to no room for much else.
A steel structure may not be the first idea that comes to mind for your work and fun space, yet it is a very practical and affordable alternative to a wood structure.
When you consider the ease of construction (It can be constructed with a team of 4 in a weekend), and the durability (Florida testing approval to withstand winds up to 150 mph), why not consider an American Steel Span building?
The fun has only begun once you get a few buddies to commit to helping you construct your man cave. Yes, you will probably have to bribe them a little with a promise of cold beverages and some steaks, yet the comradery that will occur will last a lifetime.
Now that you have your garage/workshop built, what can you fill it up with? This is where you can let your creative juices flow. From my personal experience, I had no idea what I was going to do with the tire I got off a NASCAR drivers crew.
That tire collected dust for years in my basement till one day I saw online that I could turn it into a table. No matter what your likes are, there are hundreds if not thousands of ideas aplenty to turn what once was considered yard sale material into talking pieces for years.
Depending on what you do for a living and your financial position, steel structures are not limited to a workshop or garage. Many companies today have made the transition to steel for their warehouse or headquarters.
If your company is looking for a uniform look, that is all the buildings have a similar appearance, then premanufactured steel structures are a sustainable option.
Many people are not aware that steel roofs help cool in the summer and heat in the winter, so the benefits that come with this far exceed the initial lower costs.
By considering steel as a viable option for your dream project, you will be helping more than just yourself. Your significant other will have some time to themselves. And since steel is 100% recyclable, your decision will help the environment as well.
Indulge yourself and enjoy your man cave. As Kenny Chesney says in one of his song’s, “It’s the little things that make life worth living”.
