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

She came in with a smile and a pipe. A study of contradictions, she seemed to understand more than most. Eyes shining with humor and a comforting, easy to talk to demeanor. She was a goddess in mortal skin. She raised a glass and said, "Confusion to the memory of Newton."
