    Wink All hail the man cave

    This thread is entirely about me gloating. Sorry about that.

    After about 4 months of my house being upside down and being refurbed almost entirely (only two rooms untouched... because we did them two years ago when we moved in) I've finally been able to unpack my rubbish and create my man cave in what was the garage, and is now a lovely and warm interior room.

    In corner one we have my PC and comfy desk chair, along with books stacked on the shelves and the handful of Warhammer miniatures I ever bothered to paint (Eldar on top, Dwarves & Skaven below for the curious)...
    All hail the man cave-mancave1.jpg

    There's also the TV, my beloved LG 42" plasma, which has connected into it, from left to right: PC, Xbox 360, Wii, N64, Dreamcast, Gamecube and DVD Player. The cupboard on the left is boxed PC games; the bottom drawer Wii games, middle drawer 360 games, top drawer is controllers, and the cupboard on the right has the Gamecube, Dreamcast, N64, DS and Gameboy games in it. And a couple more controllers that didn't fit in the drawer, for my life overfloweth with consoles now
    All hail the man cave-mancave2.jpg

    And to enjoy all this from, a lovely reclining leather chair. And next to that, my 20+ year old Amiga 500, and boxes and boxes of floppies stashed away beneath.
    All hail the man cave-mancave3.jpg

    I love my wife

    It was only ever a glorified shed for us anyway, it was too small to get a car and lawnmower in together. So the old wood shed got knocked down and a 12' by 8' shed put up in its place for all the gardening bits.

    Now I just need to build a shelter to keep my firewood dry. Which is to say, I'm allowed to build a badly designed and optimistically constructed piece of DIY that's not vital so I can indulge my awful handyman skills to my heart's content

    They're vaguely tied together as much as they can be but there's just so many cables going in :/ the aerial cable alone goes from the aerial point at the wall -> N64 manual switcher -> Dreamcast automatic switcher -> TV.

    If anyone has ideas for neatening it up, please, enlighten me!

    Very jealous... makes my man cave look more like a lady base

    I've got a 32" TV, Xbox 360, MegaDrive 1 & 2, Master System, NES, Dreamcast and BluRay player and even a small (albeit cheap and uncomfortable) sofa. Oh, and a wolf skin rug. And a big poster of Penelope Cruz in not a lot. But it's all crammed around our multiple fridges, freezers and washing machine in the far too hot for comfort conservatory...

    Run the cables up inside the wall? Or run a length of trunking up - not as neat but easier to do :/
