Buy a Shipping Container Man Cave
For most men, having their own space to enjoy a few beers, whilst playing computer games or watching the footie, would be a dream come true! As Christmas is just round the corner, have a think about how you could make this dream come true for the special man in your life. A backyard shipping container man cave would make a unique and much-appreciated gift. Why not let your boyfriend, husband or father have their ‘man-time’, while you get the whole house to yourself?
Shipping Container Man Cave Ideas
- First Steps
Before we can build a shipping container man cave for you, we need to first carry out a home visit and assess your site. We need to ensure your garden, drive or back yard has the right access for the unit to be delivered.
- Unit Size
As soon as we get the go ahead, we can start choosing the right-sized container for your container man cave project. I think a 10ft container would be ideal for him and a few friends – you don’t want to make it any bigger or more luxurious, or he might want to move in there permanently!
- Man Cave Colours
When it comes to decorating the backyard man cave, it can be painted in whatever colour you like. Choose his favourite colour, his sports team colours, or even pink with yellow spots – the choice is yours! We will send over a RAL colour chart so you can decide.
To make sure the container doesn’t get too hot or too cold, we can ply-line and insulate it with 12mm ply over glass/wool insulation.
- Interior Finish
Modified containers have a wood interior finish. We can either paint the inside of your man cave in your chosen colour, or line it with a white melamine, easy-to-clean finish.
Add some windows, allowing daylight (and air) into the shipping container man cave. For security, the standard windows we fit come with anti-vandal shutters.
Our 10ft containers come with flat panel double doors as standard. These are fitted with high security lockboxes and insurance rated padlocks. The double doors will allow him to get a sofa and a 50″ TV in safely. But for everyday use, we can fit a personnel door. This is an easy opening door, and comes with a 10 point locking system. To avoid unexpected interruptions from the women in his life, possibly walking in and disturbing “Call of Duty” mid-game, personnel doors can also be locked from the inside.
Other shipping container man cave ideas include electrical fixtures and fittings. We can install lighting and heaters. But perhaps the most important fixtures are plug sockets – you need them to plug in their Xbox, TV or guitar amp!!!!
