I wish I had one.  Homes in Oklahoma don't have basements generally.  We have a "smoke" room in our third bedroom though.  It has a loveseat, coffee table and TV, where we retire once the boy goes to sleep.

I was just talking about "man rooms" with a couple coworkers today at lunch.  Seems I'm the odd man out here -- no man room.  I do have a quarter of the garage to myself, so long as I keep moving the wife's/child's crap out of it every few days.

Does my office at work count?

I don't have a man cave as much as rule a fiefdom.

None here.

The main tv rig is in the living room.  Ever since we got a DVR, the wife uses that room more than I do.

The closest thing to a Man Cave in our house is this:

Describe 'em if you got 'em.

Mine: dedicated theater room

two rows of seating
popcorn machine
projector
101" screen
7.1 speaker system (rarely used as 7.1)
HD-DVD player  Cry Sad
Oppo DVD player
PS3
Denon Receiver (need to upgrade)
Direct TV
In the process of building a media server


My soon to be complete man cave will not likely feel much like a man cave - I placated my wife and said ok to her colors - but it will act like one.  Setup will be similar to yours, Teed.  12' x 22' dedicated theater room.  It will have:

two rows of seating (either recliners or some modern sofas)
popcorn machine (outside the room)
projector (Panasonic, not sure yet whether I'll go 1080 - we'll wait for the final bill on the basement)
106" screen
7.1 speaker system with acoustical treatments done by bpape on AVS
HD-DVD player - I wish (f'ing Blue Ray BS)
Denon or Yamaha Receiver

We'll see about a Wii or PS3...

I met one of my neighbors on AVS.  He's acted as a consultant on the project to my builder and has done the acoustical treatments and will be running the track for the fabric.  When my wife heard his set-up, she was on board Devil Devil Devil

Is this as close as we get to having wet bars in our man caves?    Cry

Obviously no man cave for me. Cheesy  No sewing/craft/art room here, either.  My room pretty much suffices as my own little den.  Sometimes, I'll work on a project in the living room, but usually I'm in my room.

I think you can imagine my disappointment when I opened this thread, the direction it is going in was not what I expected at all.

No  Air quotes man cave  Air quotes for me.
