1. The Boys Need a Bar
Every man cave should come equipped with a wet bar. Slide in a counter, add a few comfy stools, and stock it with all the best beer and cocktail fixings. If you’re going to do it big, this is definitely one feature you’ll need to include!
2. Upcycled Welding Bench
Your personal welding station should be more than functional. It should make a personal statement about the kind of craftsman you are.
Airplane hobbyists can not only craft their own designs, but they can do so on a welding station that channels their inner pilot with an upcycled airplane lift outfitted as a welding bench like the one on the right!
3. Hi-Tech Keg
Gone are the college frat days of the aluminum keg in a trash can full of ice. Grownups have a sleek keg on wheels with a professional tap on top. Click here to explore all the hi-tech options!
4. The Real Deal Theater
Sure, you may have a huge flat screen television with the latest gaming system hooked up and streaming services, but do you have a projector that re-creates the theater experience? The go-big-or-go-home mentality definitely applies in this situation!
5. Submerged Lift
Although you may love to restore a classic automobile from time to time, that’s not always what’s on the menu in your man cave. Install a submerged hydraulic lift and keep your floor space open in between projects.
6. Master Remote Control
Doubtless, your man-cave will be filled with hi-tech gadgets. Too many remote controls spoil the fun. Pull it all together with a single master control unit and quit wasting time looking for the right one to do the job.
7. Personal Climbing Wall
Sky’s the limit, right? If you’ve got a larger-than-life space that needs filling, get your own indoor climbing wall! Skip the bench press and go vertical.
8. Secure the Goods
Upgrade entry security to “Fort Knox” level with an entry door facade that imitates a bank vault. If that’s too over the top for your taste, at least lock up your space with a remote locking system. That way you can play gatekeeper from anywhere!

Remember when a garage was nothing more than a big box with walls, ceiling and a floor? And a shed was a littler version of the same? Customers wanting one didn’t ask for much more than a space to store vehicles or an odd assortment of tools. But somewhere along the line, circa the early 2000s, the common garage and shed began to evolve. Secondary buildings took on an entirely new look and purpose. They became places to store and display collections, or as private getaways for family and friends. The market for these souped up sheds and garages, variously called hobby shops, toy shops or man caves, quieted a bit when the Great Recession reared its ugly head around 2008, but the builders we talked to said it never really went away, and the market is once again growing slowly forward. In this issue of Rural Builder, we decided to show off some of these special buildings.
