Every man needs a place he can call his own. Whether you're dreaming of a peaceful spot to watch the big game or you want to create a cool hangout for you and your friends, turning your shed into a backyard man cave is the perfect solution! With just a bit of planning, it’s easy to convert a simple storage shed into a relaxing retreat where you can escape from the stress of everyday life.
Not sure how to go about creating a man cave shed? This simple guide will show you how to do it in just eight simple steps.
1. Prepare Your Shed for Renovation
If you already have a shed in your backyard, you’ll want to start by emptying it out and cleaning up the space. Remember, a man cave is not a storage unit, and trying to store items in there will totally ruin the vibe.
While sheds are a great place to store items like lawn mowers and gardening tools, they sometimes also become a catch-all for items we’re thinking about getting rid of. Do yourself a favor and use this opportunity to thin out your collection, giving away or throwing out anything you haven’t used in a year or longer. When you’re done, you should have a reasonable amount of stuff. This will make it easier to find an alternative storage space, like your garage or a spare room.
If you have items you need to keep, and you don’t have another storage space, consider putting them neatly back in your current shed...
