Music Room Shed

A man cave shed is a great hideaway to relax, but it also can be a quiet spot to work. This shed from @modern_shed combines a music room and an office. The work station, comfortable sofa and music-themed artwork makes the space stylish and inviting.

Bar Shed

Your shed hangout spot doesn’t have to be enclosed to be considered a man cave. Nicknamed the “Sidebar Pub Shed,” this bar shed by @njmundyesq features an extended porch with plenty of outdoor seating so friends can put their feet up and enjoy a drink.

Inside, display shelves for bottles and a television to watch the game augment the friendly neighborhood bar experience.

Golf Shed

For golf lovers, here’s a great idea from @jessiegabris — install a golf simulator!

Most simulators include a projector, impact screen and launch pad, all of which will fit in a large shed. Decide how to power these things, then make sure you have enough room to swing a club. Now you can achieve the perfect drive in your own backyard!

Arcade Shed

This man cave from Jonathan Bane and @mancavemasters started as an empty 14- by 20-ft. shed. He installed old school arcade games, a TV and cozy couches to create a nostalgic backyard getaway. The deep blue walls, wood floors and recessed lighting dress up the space — you’d never even know it was a shed!

Deluxe Man Cave Shed

Take a tour of this deluxe man cave from @supersupon inside a 24- by 14-ft. shed. Inside you’ll find a full bar, cozy lighting, a large TV, dart board and a foosball table. The metal accents throughout the space give it an industrial rustic finish, including that corrugated metal ceiling.

Fishing Shed

Of course, man caves aren’t just for men. This shed from @tashafee_armstrong shows she sheds and man caves can be interchangeable.

Her shed includes tool storage and this amazing fishing lure wall. Rows of colorful fishing lures pop against the black pegboard. It’s functional storage as well as a beautiful display for anyone who likes to fish!

Gaming Shed

Turn your shed into the ultimate gaming man cave, like this one from @elonzogames. The space features a green screen, computer desk and multiple monitors. Game-themed artwork and collectibles add to the vibe.

A separate shed like this means the video game noise won’t disturb anyone, so gamers can play uninterrupted. Just make sure your household router is close enough for internet access.

Epic Home Theater

How about a theater man cave for movie lovers? That’s what @michaelmansell did with this backyard shed that now serves as an epic home theater.

The extensive build process includes sound-proofing, a built-in projector screen, a souped-up sound system and theater-style seating.  Now all you need are the candy and popcorn!
