Project "Man Cave": 5 of the Best DIY Shed Transformations

Storage sheds are often relegated as nothing more than a messy backyard stash of miscellaneous garden supplies and tools.  Although there's nothing wrong with a backyard supply stash, these sheds prove to be far more valuable to your home's overall value when converted into an extra home attachment.  One of the biggest shed conversion trends is the ever popular after "man cave." These beloved masculine zones come in a variety of styles and types, each with their own special purpose.

Private Gym

Rather than spending a few hours at a crowded gym, turn your shed into a private and personalized gym experience.  This smart shed conversion saves money in the long run by allowing you to skip costly monthly gym membership fees.  Fill your shed with your favorite exercise equipment and enjoy peaceful and private work-outs.

Band Practice

Music is a huge part of many men's lives.  Regardless of their skill or experience, everyone should have the opportunity to practice and enjoy their music creations. Creating a music-themed man cave allows privacy to practice away from noise or music.  If involved in a band, a man cave doubles as a great place to practice for performances and organize gig schedules. 

Sports Zone

Not every member of the family enjoys roaring football games or rowdy sports parties.  Save the yearly parties by moving them all out to the man cave.  Invest in a great TV or sound system and include comfortable seating and even a mini fridge or drink station. All your party guests will feel at home in this ultimate sports zone. 

Comfort Zone

After chaotic days at work, finding a quiet, relaxing place can be difficult.  Every man should have a safe place to mentally detox and be at peace. Transform your old shed into a comfortable place to meditate and re-charge.  Cozy recliners or small couches make great places for an afternoon nap.  Include a good sound system for some favorite music or radio.  This man cave also provides the perfect place for painting, writing, sketching or other favorite hobbies.  An hour or two in a relaxing man cave is the perfect way to relax for the rest of the evening.

Gamer Safe-Haven

Expensive gaming platforms or stashes of games aren't always family-friendly, particularly if your family has small children.  Protect your prized gaming consoles from accidents or damage by creating a safe haven for all of your gaming equipment.  Shelves for games and your own personal gaming zone allow you to enjoy your gaming experience without hogging the family TV or computer.  Snacks and comfortable seating complete this fun, entertainment-themed man cave. Your friends will love visiting your gaming cave and sharing your enjoyment. 

 

Regardless of what type of man cave you choose to create, this shed transformation adds value to your home and property. By personalizing your man cave design, you guarantee that you'll have a great creation for all of your future needs.  Choose your favorite design or purpose and transform your shed into a valued investment for you and your family.
