A guy at work once said "man caves are for men who don't have permission to run his ENTIRE house"
Sorry. I clean my guns in the garage (work bench).

i dont believe it.
i like that my living room is clean, and the colors all match, and i do what i can to allow my fiance to keep it that way by keeping most of my greasy work in the garage.

i have rewired electronics (complete with soldering smoke) wile sitting with the lady as we watched tv.
i have stripped the paint of the engine cover of my bike on the living room floor.
i have ground down the trigger catch on my mosin at my computer desk wile watching youtube videos.
i dont think "the woman owns the house" but i do think it is easier for her to keep it comfortable for us if i keep the dirty stuff in the dirty place.
i would totally have a man cave if i could afford it.

but alas. the closest thing i have to a man cave is a dirty garage.
motorcycles in pieces all over the floor, compressor in the corner, tools line one wall, parts line the other, ammo press in a box stashed under the bicycles, and of course, washer and dryer in the corner meaning the woman has to trudge through all my mess to do laundry.
i still havnt put away the powder coating gun that i havnt used in about 3 weeks

I have my own dedicated room that I am in the process of building a hidden book shelf door to keep it incognito.

Hell I striped and customized my Win 1200 in the dinning room of my old apt. I now have a complete room just for the gun and hiking gear

I do as well. I have a cement enclosed room that was a utility room and now houses all my firearms, reload equipment and hiking gear. As for pictures... no way!

not because of any other reason than it is a huge mess! I'd be ashamed to post it at this point. But once I get it worked out and finish some shelving, I'll be happy to show it.

I have a spare bedroom that I've turned into my "man room". It's basically just a room with a futon covered in body armor, my gun safe and ammo cabinet, a coat rack and closet with uniforms and a shelf full of miscellaneous work items. And a couple rifle cases in the corner.

I've got a 12'x20' shed/workshop in the back yard with most of the comforts of home. That's where I clean my firearms. Spend most of the day(s) there anyway.

I have an office that is about 180 Sq feet that house my computer and the crates for my 3 dogs, ohhh and the gf has a small desk, once the garage is cleared out I have area for my work bench and I am contemplating converting our master retreat to gun safes and an art studio for the fiance. I have a 4 bedroom house with the office for the fiance, my 17yo and myself
