Every man needs a man cave, or so they say. It is good for the guy of the house to have at least one room or space he can call his own as most of the rest of the house will probably revolve around things the woman wants.

One of the best garage ideas is to make your garage (or a section of it) into that man cave that you want and deserve. Of course, the bigger your garage is the better suited it will be for this very important purpose.

One of the best reasons your garage is the perfect place is that it is separate from the rest of the house. That means you can make noise and do pretty much whatever you want there and your wife or girlfriend will probably not care. Women are notorious for not being interested in the garage and that is why guys can get away with most anything in that one part of the house.

Your garage man cave can be all sorts of thing including a garage workshop, a garage game room, a garage workout room / gym, a garage office, or a garage sports room. You can set it up with big screen TV's to play video games on or you can put in a loud stereo and crank the music. The thing is, in your garage man cave you can do whatever you choose to just as long is it doesn't get in the way of her car!
Heating in the winter is going to be your biggest obstacle. If you are going to want to spend any time in there in the winter months you are going to have to figure out a way to heat your garage man cave. Or you can really accept that it is a cave an go without heat. Admittedly this garage idea will work better in a place like Arizona or Hawaii where cold temperatures are not an issue.

I am adding a third car garage to my house to fulfill the "Man Cave" needs. We needed more storage and a place where I can have my area to tinker with whatever I happen to be working on at the time. I also need a durable area to workout in. The garage is currently being built, bricks get put on this week. Once it is all done the space will be heated and air conditioned and fully finished. I ran Ethernet, cable, telephone, speaker, and power wires everywhere. I plan to have a flat screen TV that can also double as my computer monitor. My computer has a Blu-Ray player for movies and will also be my music juke-box. I wired for 5.1 surround sound. There will be a keg-r-ator and a bathroom. I'm also putting two outdoor speakers on the patio side in case the party needs room to spread out around our fire pit. I'm looking forward to the garage being finished so I can start moving in and enjoying my "Man Cave".
