Ok, ok, it is raining and I am smokin my briars, but I am sittin up in the mancave. 8-)

As I've mentioned here before, my mancave started out as my home office. It is located in the attic space above the media room and master suite addition we built onto our house about 10 years ago.

While we were building it I happened to catch an episode of one of the DIY Mancave shows and it just happened to be one for a guy that lived up in Chicago. It was being built in a basement and the guy wanted to create an airtight room with a ventilation system that would keep the smoke out of the rest of the house.

This got me to thinkin, and the next thin you know I've located a high velocity whisper quite Panisonic exhaust fan and have roughed out how I wanted it installed. I got with my GC, showed him what I wanted and the next thing ya know I've got an office / mancave with a great ventilation system.

One of the neat things about sitting up here enjoying a pipe, especially on a night like tonight, is that you are sitting up in the canopy of the trees in our back yard, so it's kinda like being up in a tree house.

I've got the windows, on the north, south and west side, all opened up around 8" or 10". There's a nice cool breeze and the wonderful sound of rain falling outside on the deck and the trees.

Add in a nice glass of bourbon and Sade playing in the background, and ya got a pretty enjoyable evening.



Here's a picture I took about 9 years ago after finishing up the brick deck. The west windows of the mancave are located on the top left.

Hmmph...driving by what looks like a very nice house, one would never guess the depravity and debauchery that occurs in that attic room overhead. Smokin', drinkin', and who knows what else? Save the childrennnnnn...!

Thanks Wiz.

Been rainin here all day. I'm back up in the mancave this evening, listening to the raindrops and enjoyin the briar again.


Sadly Richard, it seems like your comments, although in jest, are the exact sentiments expressed by most of the talkin heads on Main Stream Media these days, and subsequently parroted by their soundbite minions... The Sheeple.
