The only question left is... when is the groundbreaking ceremony.

That is all sorts of awesome. Well done.

I just have to say that I love the idea of a hidden man cave, behind a book shelf! That's just all sorts of epic! (And gothic!) Once I get a SWMBO (soon, by the looks of it), a house (within perhaps 5-10 years?) and a life (now that's a lifetime project!), I'll build one! \o/

This thread has been forgotten and overlooked for too long. A bunch of us are looking for that cool "Man Cave" idea and this one rates right up near the top. So even though the thread is ancient it has value for the new brewers and old timers alike still today. If I had a basement I would definately build/copy this to a T, but since I am all ground level some things will have to change to pull it off. Thanks for some really great ideas.

Meh, I've seen worse necrothreads. 15 months isn't all that bad.

That is def all kinds of awsome! It also apparently is approved by the afterlife speakeasy crowd. So many spirit orbs hangin around watching you build it. That's really cool that they seem to be enjoying it too. Makes you wonder how long they've been in that old,drab place? Only now to have someone like you come along & make it a way better place for them as well. Congrats man! You made a hit in 2 dimensions! Not an easy thing to accomplish.

Drywall dust orbs aside, the place really is haunted. My wife saw a man in the kitchen who disappeared before her. My daughter saw a woman in the attic, same thing, just disappeared. My sister in law heard her name shouted while she was alone in the house. I haven't seen a ghost, but I've seen doors open up and books fall off of shelves by themselves. Nothing really scary. My wife was actually glad it was a ghost, for a second she thought it was a real intruder.

Hey if movies have taught me anything then the man of the house is always the last to see an apparition or believe it. There is also a good chance that your wife will become possessed and you may have to defend yourself.

But seriously, kick ass man not just one but two hidden man caves? I wish I had your budget and time...

Nothing really scary? If I see some dude in my kitchen and he disappears before my eyes I'm leaving the house forever. I'd hire someone to get my stuff out for me. You don't ever mess with ghosts, they can't be trusted.

+1 I'd be moving far far away, badass mancave or not. Has the Paranormal Activity series taught us nothing??
