How to Create Man Caves


A man cave can become your private space to hide away and relax doing the things you enjoy, or somewhere to socialise and entertain. As a multi-purpose building, log cabins are the perfect addition to your home for creating man caves. Whether you want a space as a hobby room, garden bar, or games room, there are a wide variety of sizes and designs available to suit your garden and needs.

Pub Shed Man Caves

Create the ultimate man cave by installing your own bar. This way you can enjoy big nights out or a couple of drinks down the pub in the comfort and convenience of your home. You can save time not having to wait around for taxis, and save money otherwise spent on fares.

Having your own pub shed in the garden means you can be the landlord and set the opening times. You can easily throw a party or have friends over whenever you like as you can contain all the noise and mess to your garden building, without disturbing anyone else in the house.

Install a mini fridge to store drinks and keep them cool, and stock up on all your favourite booze and mixers. Add a dart board and juke box for entertainment and music, and coloured lighting to create an atmosphere.

If you have space in your garden, you could even create a separate room designed for making your own home brews to serve and drink at your pub.

Cinema Man Caves

Mount a projector screen or large television to create the perfect place for hosting movie nights. Cuddle up with family and loved ones, or entertain friends and guests. Ensure you have plenty of comfortable seating for everyone to sit back, relax and enjoy watching the evening’s offerings.

Finish off the interior design with movie posters on the walls and collectables from your favourite films. Don’t forget to stock up on popcorn and snacks for an authentic cinema experience.

Consider holding theme nights where you can binge on a particular movie series or celebrate a certain time of year. Scare yourself with spooky films for Halloween, or get into the festive spirit with some Christmas movies. You could even go to town decorating your log cabin to match and fit with the theme.

The home cinema room can also be used for getting everyone together to view large sporting events and tournaments, such as World Cups, European Championships, major finals, or Olympic Games. Decorate your garden room with sports memorabilia or in the colours of your favourite team.

Games Room Man Caves

Depending on the size of your log cabin space, you can accommodate all sorts of fun games and activities. Add a pool table, table football, arcade machine, pinball machine or ping pong table.

If you are a gamer, then you can set up your computer consoles and equipment somewhere where you can play in peace and quiet. Immerse yourself in your favourite game without any other distractions around you in a dedicated games room.

If your game play is more of a social event, the space inside your log cabin can be great for hosting a board game night. Arrange the furniture inside the room so everyone can comfortably sit around the table and play. It couldn’t be simpler to set up your own games night. The hardest part will be trying to decide what to play.
