My Version of A Mancave (Workshop)


I've always wanted a place I could keep my tools organized. It seems I always had to move something to get to my tools or to create a decent workspace.

I built this 12' x16' shed with 8' overhang with my hobbies in mind. The two overhead lofts added a ton more storage space for the items we don't use very often. Ultimately, this has been a perfect little workshop for my projects.

  • Awesome looking man-cave! What project are you working on next in your workshop?

    • Thank you very much. I’m not quite sure yet but I’m sure my wife has some ideas. We’re always doing DIY projects in the house. Most recent was a picture frame and before that a kitchen table.

  • Good job! I'm looking to build something similar just for storage though, gives me some good ideas...

    • Than you. There is a lot of potential storage space here if you were to make for storage only. Good luck on your project!

    • Thank you. It is 12’x16’ with an 8’ overhang. The walls are just shy of 8’ tall.
