Same here! I especially like the work bench. I might borrow that idea!

Funny, but yours is very functional, and easy to clean.

Hey Dean, when am I invited?

Dean, I spent many hours and read the entire thread about the B&B on the "other" forum. I found it just before the sale and move. It was like reading a novel that I couldn't put down. 200+ pages later I was searching real estate sites in AZ dreaming of dragging EvoWife west.

I figured you'd be pulling something like this off at some point out East. Is there a full build thread somewhere? I'd love to read it.

Jim, you bet you are invited. Let the weather warm up a bit.....

Yes there is a build thread over at the Motorcyclist Cafe.

http://www.motorcyclistcafe.com/foru...est-House-East

I have a lot of excellent help this time. Building the Motorcyclist Barn and Bunkhouse in Arizona about did me in.....

This time, I am doing all the interior, all electrical, all the Plumbing, insulation and the interior walls and ceilings. This one will have a motorcycle guest house upstair as well.

Looks awesome Dean.

As if my opinion matters , the only thing I see that I would change is the slope on the lean-to/carport. It needs more lean to really be effective washing off those pine needles. I may be wrong since you're using metal roofing.

Dig your climbing gym garage, I have ~20' ceilings in my shop and bought a bunch of handholds, just haven't decided how I want to mount them, thinking of an MDF sheeting, prepainting, installing T-Nuts on a random pattern, and hanging it.

How did you do the wall anchors?

All the bolt hangers are just in the t-nuts. It's really not strong enough for a leader fall. Maybe. But it's perfect to teach how to lead and the proper way of clipping in.

I wouldn't use MDF. We have always used 3/4 inch plywood. Put a bit of liquid nail material on the t-nuts when you install them. If you change holds frequently, the t-nuts have a rude habit of coming loose. Don't follow any type of a grid pattern, and put in way more t-nuts than you think you initially need-its a pain to have to go and remove the plywood to add more later

The worst thing about this thread isn't the jealousy it evokes...but the missing pictures from the early posters.
Some very plush man caves here fellas...and some workshops too!

maybe one day I can post worthwhile pics as at least I do have a big garage (30x70) however it's currently pretty crappy.
Looks like something Indiana Jones would explore but with some apprehension.

Like the majority of Brits on here , our man caves are woefully small. The kicker is I have a 300' x200' rear yard but access is limited ,so cant build a man cave of epic proportions in it.



A more recent shot in the other direction with the new bike
