2.The ‘Shed’ man cave

If you’re reading, you probably have one or have plans to build one. This ‘Shed’ man cave below is pretty deluxe but any shed will do. Board it up, style it and put your favourite pics, a couch- TV and of course the minbar for when the mates rock up.

3. Modern man cave

We like the rustic style, it gives you a chance to capture your unique character, though the modern cave is not a bad pick especially when it can be converted into a family entertainment room as well.



4. Man and bike shed

If you’ve just bought your second lover then your long prized new baby needs a decked out workshop where you can admire the piece. The Garage shed is the go!! Garage’s can be tricky as they are most likely shared real estate, but if you have the time to clean out all the junk, then you’ve got the perfect man shed right there.
