* Step 1: ID the space
Dad’s favorite hangout is likely secluded, has a lockable door and is where he stores his tools, dives into projects or just relaxes. Examples include garages, basements, dens, attics or studies.
* Step 2: Clean and clear
Clear out all the boxes, industrial-sized cleaning and paper products and any other items dad stowed away but does not need to access quickly. Be sure to paint the room, add additional storage and a heavy duty wall mounting kit for dad’s big screen TV.
* Step 3: Stage it
Fill the space with goodies to keep dad busy for days and truly make this space a man cave. Whether these gifts are for his projects or just for relaxing, for all he does, dad deserves the ultimate setup.
* Step 4: Break it in
Invite the guys over and encourage dad to show off his new man cave. Set out tubs of soda, beer and water as well as snacks for the guests. Cheers to this manctuary!
