Move Over Man Caves, Welcome to the Man Shed

by on

There are many men that crave the cave, but they do not have the space. As an alternative, many have turned to purchasing sheds to mark as their domain, creating a “man shed” or a “bar shed.”

Picture it, after a long day you come home and are done with dealing with the stress you face on a daily basis. It is time to relax. Wouldn’t it be nice to walk into a room filled with cold beverages, large television, and anything else that helps you unwind?

Did you know that you could actually have your new man cave delivered right to you home?

Where did the space go?

It happens to us all, we grow up. What this means is that when you purchased your home you had a vision of what you were going to do with all the space. You may have had extra bedrooms or even a full sized basement free of use.

Now, between children and other life happenings, this space has slowly disappeared. Now are the days when you come home to a busy home where you have to fight for a remote, battle it out for the last soft drink, or sit through one more episode of Dora the Explorer.

What do you do? You get a shed to turn into the perfect man cave. Just do not forget to hang the “Do Not Disturb” sign..

Estimated Pricing

Here is a chart for a basic model shed that you can turn into the perfect man cave. No huge amounts of money. No time consuming building projects. No need to try to fight for space in the house, and the bonuses; extra privacy for you.

Keep in mind that this is just an estimate, as well as there are larger sizes should you want a bigger man cave. There are even some companies that will finance this. You will only make payments instead of dropping a full lump sum.

10 x 14 $4,000 $4,500 $5,000
10 x 16 $4,200 $5,000 $5,100
