Even if your home didn’t come with its own purpose-built man cave like our current million-dollar Glasshouse Mountains Prize Home, it can be an inexpensive and appealing addition to your property. Simply reclaim a section of the garage or get ready to revamp the unused garden shed. It’s time to get your DIY on and stock up on your tools, because before you know it, you’ll have somewhere to store them!
In the classic Aussie film, The Castle it was simply “the pool room” – a hangout for recreational pursuits and a place to store dad’s treasures. It’s also been known as the “retreat”, “studio”, “den”, or even “mantuary” if you please. Whatever you call it, if you have one, you’re sure to be the envy of all your mates. And if they’re lucky, they might even get an invite. Of course, they’ll probably have to lend a hand on the tools if they want their names on the door list. So, come on lads! Channel your inner Scotty Cam and put on the tool belt, we’ve got work to do!
Be your own publican
Our prize home, built on 3000m2, has plenty of space for the dedicated man-arena. By custom fitting out the onsite double shed, we’ve created the ultimate escape complete with sports bar, dart board, pool table, and even space for the ride on mower!
When planning your own man cave, here’s a few essentials you’ll want to build into your budget:
From the moment you first put on the footy and crack a coldie with your feet up on the couch and no-one in ear shot to tell you not to, it will all have been worth it! But if it all sounds like too much work, just buy yourself a ticket and cross your fingers for the big prize home win in time for Christmas.
Give yourself the star treatment
You may be surprised to learn the modern day ‘man cave’ is not only desirable to the man of the house. In fact, many real estate agents will tell you it’s the missus who is often most keen on the idea of somewhere to stash hubby’s projects and trophies, golf clubs, tools and collector’s items. Or, perhaps claim it for themselves as a dedicated space for their own hobbies.
Escapism at its best
One thing’s for sure, if you are lucky enough to have a “cave” – man, woman or otherwise – there are plenty of ways to make the most of this coveted home feature.
Doesn’t get much better than this
If you have a pulse, you should be champing at the bit to get started and bring the ultimate retreat to life! But if you haven’t the budget, the know-how, or are just not the DIY type, shout yourself and a mate a ticket in our million-dollar prize home draw. Between the two of you, that’s double the chance of winning and you both get to spend all summer long pinching each other, saying “how good is this!”
