It’s summer in St. Louis. The smell of fresh cut grass and backyard barbecue linger in the air, and the sound of Cardinals baseball drifts through the open windows. It doesn’t get any better than this. Unless, of course, you’ve got a backyard man cave.
A Backyard Man Cave Every Guy Wishes For
Looking to transform your backyard into the ultimate hangout for baseball, barbecue, and beer? Whether you’re looking to stick to a budget or go all in, get inspired by some of our St. Louis outdoor experts’ favorite backyard man cave ideas:
Get Outside (and Watch TV)
Who says you have to leave the big game behind when you venture outside? Build a flatscreen into a covered shed or outbuilding and enjoy the game in the great outdoors. Improvenet has the best garage-to-man-cave conversion featuring a bar, flatscreen TVs, a gas fireplace and of course, plenty of personality.
No backyard man cave is complete without a place for the grill, and why stop there? An outdoor kitchen gives your hideaway some serious summer sizzle. Whether you are entertaining the boys or celebrating your kid’s birthday, an outdoor kitchen is an investment worth considering. Just be prepared to fend off neighbors who follow the smoky smells to their source…
If you’re looking to save money (or maybe you don’t have permission to tear up the backyard), you might think about converting the garage. Check out Improvenet’s complete DIY guide to creating the ultimate “Garage-Mahal,” including money-saving tips for insulating even the thinnest garage doors. We can guarantee that if you create a man cave using that guide, you will never want to leave the house for a sport’s game again.
Rather than build a new structure from scratch, why not take advantage of what’s already there? Converting an existing backyard shed is a great, cost-effective way to create the ultimate space for kicking back. And your design possibilities are endless – transform the space into a relaxing office, your personal gym, or even a decked out game room.
Deck It Out
The right decking and fencing is key to staking out your backyard man cave. Consider alternative materials to traditional wood decking like capped composite, PVC, traditional composite, and vinyl. They’re resistant to the elements, won’t fade, splinter, or rot, and are virtually maintenance free — so you can spend more time enjoying your space, not working on it. And if you are taking your guest through the back door, the deck is their first impression. Make sure you have that wow factor.
