I am super late on blogging today...
Sometimes when I'm at work I have to do work. I know, weird.
Now let's talk about my garage...
When Steven and I were house hunting last Spring, we basically had two criteria we didn't want to budge on: we wanted at least an acre of land and we needed a home that was move-in ready.
We had a fairly easy house hunting experience. We searched online until we saw a place we were interested in viewing, and then called our Realtor to get a key and take a look. We only saw one home we were interested in enough to see in person, and that's the home we ended up buying. It was on one acre, move-in ready, and had the "character" I was looking for (vaulted, exposed beam ceilings, rustic fire place, skylights). I was sold within minutes. Yet, I don't think my husband was sold until he saw the 3 car garage. His eyes opened wide and I'm sure what he was thinking was MAN CAVE.
While most of our spare cash goes to projects within the home, Steven squeezes what he can out of our budget for his man cave ;) It isn't even close to being "fixed up" but he has definitely meet all the basic criteria for having an official man cave.
Such as tools,
work out equipment
and a beer mural...because every man cave has that, right?
And obviously, no man cave is complete without man's best friend.
Huck has his own bed, bones, and even a heat lamp so he can hang out with his daddy until the wee hours of the night.
So while I'm busy taking 10,000 food photos for this here blog, Steven's in the man cave shooting darts, watching tv, and cuddling with his pup (although he'll never admit to that last one).
I think we all need a place we can go to unwind and recharge. Mine is usually in the bath tub with lots of candles and a good book, Steven's is the garage.
I'm glad we found a home that could give him that.
