  • Man cave?

    I've always been somewhat ambivalent to the moniker "Man Cave". it seems to convey a sort of Neanderthal state of mind.
    As if there should be a tire suspended from the ceiling and a faux tree to climb upon and hurl god knows what at unwelcomed guests entering said "cave".
    My recently, comparatively speaking, garage structure, needs exterior embellishment and along those lines I have today ordered from the mother country (of course!) a wooden sign.
    The main and largest lettering reads "PUB SHED" along with some other, personalization text.
    I will post some pics if anyone is interested, once it arrives from across the pond and mounted.

    Even a cave benefits from pleasing decor. A tasteful tire swing looks good in any space.

        Yes, but classic bias ply or radial?

          I'm talking 'bout the exterior decor. The eaves don't extend far enough for a hammock I'm afraid. It's not a Frank Lloyd Wright design garage.

            Push the envelope. Think outside the box! 😄

          Now that's a tough one. Tire manufacturers claim that bias ply tires handle higher loads, but radials last longer, so if you think you'll be using the swing often or long term, go with a radial. Radials also run cooler, which may be a factor in warmer climates.

          Also, why not an indoor hammock?

            a hammock hung from the garage rafters could be very relaxing

              And it could double for parts storage!

            have something made that looks like the front of a pub (or the opening to a cave, of course):

              My sign arrived the other day, somewhat the worse for wear, or the rigors overseas shipping I should say, but still serviceable.
              Here's a couple of pics.:
