The Building of a Man Cave

Posted Apr 24 2009, 2:42 am in ,

Tomorrow we start the building an addition on our house. My husband calls it his “man cave.” I let him think that, but the secret is that it’s actually my library. Shhhh. Don’t tell him.

This isn’t the first time I’ve built. I’ve actually built two houses previously, including the one we currently live in. We hired a great contractor, and we’re trying to do everything right so we don’t forget anything, yet stay within budget.

Anyway, in addition to the library/man cave, we’ll have a big laundry room and a powder room. The man cave will have a wet bar and a fireplace, not to mention a covered porch.

So below is the before picture. The addition is going where the current patio is, right off those french doors.

So stay tuned for my construction updates. I’ll post pictures as the building progresses.

I can’t wait.
