Default Your Texan Man Cave

I was wondering if there was anyone out there who was able to get a room all for himself at the house he pays for. You know, a man cave? Is it a Texan Man cave? You know, TV, refrigeration, couches, pictures and collectibles of our beloved team?

If so, post those pics here.

I just remodeled my son's( moved out, going into Navy) old bedroom into a sports memoriabilia room. Changed out the carpet for a Laminate wood floating floor, and ahve several collectables, quite a few Texan things such as a regulation helmet signed by most of 2007 squad, 3 team signed footballs 2006,2007,2008. Also footballs individually signed by Mario, Demeco, Amobi, Matt Schaub, Jerseys signed by Mario, and Andre Johnson and an 8x10 signed by Dunta. We also have obtained an autographed authentic superbowl jersey signed by our nemisis Peyton Manning and a football signed by all 3 Mannings( Peyton, Archie and Eli) 8x10's signed by, D. Hester, E. James, Jerry Rice, Hakeem Olajuwon, Oswalt, and Berkman. Also have an E. Campbell autographed authentic Oiler jersey. Mini Helmets signed by Troy Polamalu, Willie Parker, Chad Johnson, and Kevan Barlow. Like I said I am just getting started but it is a nice little retreat. I will get my pics put up here as soon as I get the room filled in a lil more.

Mine is my garage... Every Craftsman tool just about created, beer fridge, my Harley and a stereo...The wife never comes out there unless she doesn't hear from me in over an hour.... I guess she wants to make sure I haven't killed myself...As for a room, no way I would want a room like in my house, plus the Mrs. wouldn't have it if I did..

I hear ya. I got the Garage all to myself, wifey wouldn't let me have a room. I got stuff for my band, small garage items like tool chest and carwash stuff (have luxury of a tool shed in backyard), my shoeshine stands and my Texans stuff (autographed helmets, newspaper clippings of us beating Dallas, and basically anything Texan).

The garage of course is mine but in the house we have a loft kind of TV room and I get "primary decorating rights" in there. It's not all Texans because I'm not "all Texans" and have other interests so lots of that stuff is in there too. Plus my wife isn't entirely excluded from there so it does have some of her stuff in it.

I also have a "computer room" that's 99% me but again, just as with the TV room she's got a spot in there. My wife and I are both in I.T. so we both spend a lot of time in the computer room.

The garage is mine, but that's mainly for tools, stained glass, my train table, and projects.

My main cave is our converted dining room that I use for a recording studio. I've got some Texans stuff in there, but it has to fight for room with all my guitar gear and music stuff.

My son wants all my Texans memorabilia for his room. He wants a camo paint job with Texans decor. Sounds good to me.

Cool Re: Your Texan Man Cave

That's our #1 bar to finding a place to buy. We can only afford a townhome (we're not ready for the burbs). And very few have 'game rooms' (instead they cram 3 small crappy bedrooms onto a floor).

I want a room:
-for PS3
-for my 100's of pint glasses and shot glasses
-build a bar
-kegorator (for 1/8 barrels of special beer)
-to display all my OSU and Texans toy, autographs, etc.

Be careful.. he'll talk you into coming by to see the studio, then when you get there, he will ask you if you'd like to pose for a few mug shots... RUN, as it will be too late if you do not !!

I have a Texans room/man cave. Painted in the official team color "steel blue". Houses all of my jerseys, photo's, signed and autographed items, etc...

Its pretty cool for now, or at least until we have kids. Then it goes bye-bye.

Eh...just hope for a son. Worse case scenario you paint the room red for a girl and just leave the items in there by the crib.

No man-cave here! Only men in my life is my son and my grandson (all the rest of us are girls) so I can pretty much do what I want.

My garage has MY tools, and Texans stuff on the walls and my study has other sports stuff hanging up from the Texans to the Astros to the RedSox (I am a transplanted Yankee), Celtics and the Ice Bats and other USA/Texas type of stuff.

My house is not big enough to have a separte room and although I keep kicking my kids out - they keep coming back.
