How To Build A Man Cave In The Back Garden

It can always be difficult to get away from responsibilities and the hectic working life. Going away for a couple of days, a week or even two weeks is great in the moment but you always have to come back to the reality of the working life.

Create yourself a getaway zone at home where you can relax, put your feet up and not have a worry in the world. 

A man cave, or she shed, dedicated to just YOUR needs. 

Where to start… 

What do you want to use your man cave for? 

Is it just an escape room for you, where you can chill out,  watch TV or simply just read a book in peace? 

Are the cost of nights out, drinks prices and queues getting to extroiant for you to be able to have a good night out with your mates? 

Love a movie night, and dreamed of having your own home cinema? 

Over the years we have seen some of the most amazing customer man cave transformations. Take a look at some of our customers great ideas and use them for your own man cave ideas. 

The man cave pub 

The ultimate goal in life is to have a pub at the bottom of your garden. With a log cabin this dream is possible. 

Many customers add a bar area with lovely tall bar stools or a comfy sofa, so all family and friends can enjoy a drink or two. Get yourself a pool table or a games table for those fun, competitive evenings with your friends.

The relaxation space 

A man cave can become an oasis from the stresses of your life. You can make the most of the double glazing included as standard with our cabins, and maybe add insulation to create a cosy environment. Our cabins are safe to install electrics into (using a qualified engineer).

The hobby room 

Always had a hobby, but never found the time and space to enjoy doing it? There is always the option to split your log cabin into two. Therefore, you are able to have your own personal space for either gyming or a workshop. Then, the other half can be for your social time with your friends and family

The cinema room

With the online tv streaming world taking over, why not create yourself a cinema room. You can put your feet up in peace and catch up on any series you’ve missed out on. Or even host an evening to watch football or the latest movies with your family and friends. 


Now you need to work out what kind of garden building you want. Some may simply build a man cave in their shed, but there are so many other options out there. 

Log cabins are the most popular foundation to transform into a mancave. It is a great addition to the garden as it looks visually appealing with the double french doors and optional georgian style windows. 

You may question whether your garden is too small or an awkward shape, but log cabins can come in such a wide variety of shapes and sizes there will always be something suitable. 

Why choose Dunster House? 

  • All our cabins are made from slow grown spruce. Whereas, some of our competitors like to use a mix or just cheap pine. 

  • No need to worry about planning permission, as all our cabins are less than 2.5m tall. However, if in doubt contact your local authority.

  • Our cabins come with everything. You get the roof, flooring, fixtures and fittings all included to make your building experience even easier. 

With all our log cabins there are optional extras that you can add. For example, if you are looking for your cabin to hold the warmth, you can get insulation put in to reduce the chill. However, we do tell a lot of our customers that a small oil radiator is adequate to keep the room toasty. Also, we have the option to add cabin furniture like the bar area, an eco guttering system etc.
