Man cave / Studio - Start to finish

Hi guys,*

I've recently acquired myself a nice man cave....Here is the build job, I've got loads more photos but these are the main ones

Day one..







So. Bit of a mess, no real access for cars, walls crumbling, multi coloured decor....

I employed some men to do stuff



They smashed my back door in



Put a big beam in there



Ripped up current flooring



Decorating - serious job this



Less multi coloured...



2 weeks later my door arrives (stupid system) to fill my gap*



Now I had a door, the real work started, I didn't really want to do much stuff inside as it was totally open to the elements, so this is where the work began!

New flooring*



The whole place was then painted professionally to neaten my shoddy base coats up...and stuff started to go in



A TV, for no reason at all...



Skirting



Ta da



Oh, last thing







I love ramp

Final decor to go in..




Man cave FTW

Just to add, all of this work was done in 8 days (minus the 14 day wait for the door!), and stuff like plumbers, electricians, decorators all worked through night on several occasions to get it all together!

Thanks,
Tom

The ramp is from Garage Equipment group. Google them

It was just over £1500 including delivery, I did get a fair chunk off though due to various reasons....Took 2 months to arrive though!

Is that all in or requiring a separate compressor?

The ramp, is the single most awkward thing I've ever bought! 700kg all in, totally dead weight. And yes it does require a forklift haha..It does have a mobile kit, so I can move it to the corner, it's just some wheels that attach and a jack style wheel thing to raise it....an extra £100 for the mobile kit...It will be getting sunk eventually, I just want to make sure it's in the right place before I drop it! So going to use it for a few months to figure the best exact place

The ramp is fully self sufficient, doesn't require a air supply etc. it's all in the one unit
