You should figure as long as you have a recliner to sit down in, who cares what the rest of the furniture is...as long as she puts the frilly shit in the formal living room. I mean, considering she's already given you the bar and the TV, you can give in a little as well.

3.I'd wait on the pool table, show her you are willing to budge on it, and you might get more of a say on the furniture for the man cave. And if the pool table fits in the basement, you just got to extend your reach...put it down there. No need to clutter that into the man cave when you can have 2 places to get away...

4. I've got the basement in our house, but with 2 little ones, no money to do what I want to it. We've got room for 8 people to sit comfortably in front of the old 32 inch CRT, and where I wanted to put my poker table is now full of toys. I have some memorabilia to put on the walls if I ever get the chance to decorate, but for now I'm content with a place to get away from the kids and wife to watch the game.
  • It would if I knocked out 2 walls, but not comfortably. They themselves (the walls) are not structural, but the “I” beam goes through both of them. If I were to knock the walls out and place a pool table there, then we would have a low clearance (7 Ft.) over the table where the “I” beam is running. Another structural disadvantage of putting the table right there is the fact that the wall for the bathroom is so close. It would be like playing pool in a hallway. There would be plenty of room on the ends to shoot, but not nearly enough on the side. If you were to take a shot that were to require you to lift the stick quickly, you would almost certainly hit your cue on the ceiling where the low clearance is. I am going to measure again but I am not sold on the idea. BTW I do not have a welled exit. I have a sliding glass door that takes you straight out. Coincidently, the pool table in this scenario would sit about 6 feet directly behind that door.
  • I am trying to make the family room my man cave. She is already going to put the “silly little frilly shit” in the formal living room. Since we have never had more than one living room before, we already have to buy new furniture to go into the family room. I was thinking rather than buy a couch, love seat, coffee table, etc., we go ahead and buy the pool table, poker table, pub tables, and bar stools to go in that room. I am trying to save myself to time and money. If I buy a new LR suit and the manly amenities previously discussed, I will be spending more money. I am still going to get what I want…eventually. I will just have to put them somewhere else (possibly an addition to the home).
  • I just might have to wait, but that is what I am trying to avoid. It’s "either or" right now (LR suit or MA’s).
  • See... you wanted or still want to do some similar things, and now you may not be able to for quite some time. This is a fresh start and I am trying my hardest to get what I want right off of the bat. I have a feeling that if I put my man cave on the back burner, then it will stay there for a long time. All I will have is timeslot in which I am allowed to borrow the family room to watch the skins. She has the rest of the house (the kitchen in particular) why can’t I have 1 room? The crazy thing is that she doesn’t mind me having my own room…I just can’t have that one.
Edit: I am kinda eyeballing this collection.

Nice pool table, but it will need burgundy felt.

You can see my old TV's in the left corner




The coffee table was an unfinished wooden bench that I finished














Here is another piece of furniture that I refinished

Re: The Officially Unofficial Man Cave/ Redskins Room Thread

I have another end of the basement that is not pictured (it has a different motif) that I was originally wanted to put a pool table in as well, but I have the same problem with space around it. As far as the family room my Skins room has become the family room now. It has become the most comfy room in our house to hang out and watch movies and games. I can hardly keep the family out of it.

Good luck in your quest. Hopefully she budges a bit more and you get what you want...I'll just have to live vicariously through you...

Yeah, I was looking at that too. The problem is that I am not going to spend that kind of money on just the table when I can get the whole shabang around the same cost. My table will have Burgandy felt on it...just not the logo.

How much?

Re: The Officially Unofficial Man Cave/ Redskins Room Thread

Summo, I don't know if that's an official redskins store, a stalker's room, or what. Wow, I'm not worthy.

I keep trying to start a man cave, but the wife is a dolphins fan. I would have to figure out how to paint a room in half, on her colors, and one mine. Now that I think of it, that would be ugly as hell.

Dude that sucks! lol but seriously if you wanted you could paint the room a neutral color and accessorize with both teams memorabilia (Damn, do I sound like Martha Stewart or what!) I need to do something manly now...~ripping hair out of chest~

Re: The Officially Unofficial Man Cave/ Redskins Room Thread

I have picked up some serious ground this weekend. My wife didn't realize that I wanted to put a matching set of "Pub" type furniture into that room. I have her sold 100% on everything except the Pool Table (75%). Her biggest concern was that she wanted a sofa or 2 recliners in the room as well. I told her "Done!". A little more smoothing over between now and the 21st and I will get everything that I want.

I love it when a plan comes together.

Awesome. Can't wait to see pictures once you've got the room completed.
