If I had a man cave that nice the world would never see me again. I would order all my grain in and just hang out in the cave and make beer while watching the tube or surfing the net. Absolutely beautifull transformation of a crap hole to a honey hole. Does SWMBO come visit often? Get her too stay down there with you and help brew and you got it licked. "Who cares if WW III is going on outside, were havin too much fun down here" Thanks for the pic man.
What do you mean "no Kidneys"???, WTF now I gotta drink less beer...

Excellent job! I am curious- the original pics showed a lot of moisture in the dirt floor. Did you have to do anything special to alleviate that?

well, it was always wet done here after rains but I added dirt around my foundation and this really helped. I need some new gutters yet and I will have it all solved.
A dehumidifier has helped also.

And Thanks for all the comments guy's.

AND...If anyone wants to come visit in June, I always need help cutting and haulin' wheat
.....but no adoptions..........sorry

Watch out man - you're headed straight for the guard rail in that second picture!

Great job on the basement - and with a bed down there, you don't even have to leave to crash! Tanglefoot Bed and Bar indeed!
