3 Reasons to Turn a Garage into a Man Cave
Updated: Mar 9, 2020
Room additions and accessory dwelling units (ADUs) can be a valuable change to your home. Transforming a dusty detached garage into a modern man cave, for example, can improve your home and your life, both financially and emotionally. In fact, your garage is a space that presents a ton of opportunity and versatility for a room addition or ADU.
Here's why we think you should convert your garage into a man cave.
1. It's a Place to Do What You Love
Whether you're a sports fan, a gamer or poker player, a man cave offers you the space to enjoy the things you're passionate about. It's a place to escape, to hang out, to work out and to concentrate (such as a dedicated work space).
It's also a space that provides your family some separation from any loud social gatherings, such as a big football game or poker night. Such separation allows you can turn up volume and socialize without it disturbing other family members and/or sleeping children.
Your new man cave is also a place where you can explore new hobbies, such as woodworking or memorabilia collection.
2. It's Place to Hold What's Important
On that same note, we're sure you have valuable and priceless items you hold dear. That could be collectables, electronic equipment, hunting and fishing equipment, trophies, etc. A man cave can house and display all your "stuff" that may be currently hidden out of sight.
This means your man cave can showcase the things that are important to you and serve as a reminder as to what you're passionate about in life.
3. You can Relax & Unwind
Room additions and accessory dwelling units (ADU) in your garage provide a space very close to home where you to find some zen, especially when life gets hectic. It's a place to recover after a long day, burn some calories, enjoy friendships and hang out with your family. Finding the time and the place to relax and unwind not only provides entertainment but can help alleviate stress and anxiety -- an important step for overall mental health.
