    Man room in detached garage, Build suggestions

    I m purchasing a home with an extra large detached garage. I want to enclose a corner of it 10x15 for reloading, some gunwork, and just a get away. The garage has a cement floor, wood walls, sheaved over and covered with siding.

    I would appreciate any ideas.

    A little drywall, paint, a bar etc.

    Every guy needs a man cave.

    Here's mine (a work in progress)

    The room behind the glass is where I keep my cleaning supplies/tools and do maintenance, some mods, duracoating etc.

    10' x 15' space?
    If you don't take 'full' control of that new detached garage quickly, it will become your wife's hobby and shoe center...

    That is one unbelievable garage! Very nice!

    Whoa. I was comfortable with my 8x10 man-cave...now I think I'm developing man-cave envy.

    Mine has a reloading bench on one wall, the opposite has my electronics bench, bookshelf, computer, and a 13inch crayola TV/DVD player. It used to be my daughters' bedroom, and didn't realize until after I moved everything in that it was painted pink.

    I don't have anything like TheShadow's bat cave, but here is my little corner of handloading and escape space in my detached garage. I also have a cement floor. I put up wood frame walls, insulated them, and attached dry wall (didn't bother with mudding or painting, might someday).

    I was thinking of maybe rebar through the studs in the outside wall, building the wall out of 2x6s with 1" plywood under the sheetrock. I may or may not wind up with my safe out there. It will be alarmed and climate controlled. Heavy duty door etc. Big dog in the garage, haha

    The power of imagination is the key to life.

    It helps you think ahead, consider the possibilities,and prepare you for the future.
    If you lack that ability, you're no different from livestock trapped behind a fence.

    I here that some of the big ammo manufacturers are trying to add facilities to increase production & help relieve the shortage. You keep posting pictures like that, you may be "annexed" by Remington!

    Nice caves!

    Gee, I'd love to have a man cave, but no place for it. Well, maybe in the future, I'll get lucky. And Shadow, I'm another guy who is jealous!

    If I could add a sink and toliet to my garage, that would top my list, followed by a beer fridge!
