I'm finally wrapping up my Covid19 Studio Man-Cave project. When the Covid hit the US I decided to convert my two-car garage into a studio/Man-Cave. My wife and I were both working remotely and both of my kids were sent home from college to continue there learning remotely. It was challenging with four family members online and all participating in video conferences. I felt this was the perfect opportunity to get approval for the studio/Man-Cave project. It was also the case the US government was handing out Covid checks. At any rate, the project was approved and I went to work. The project included but was not limited to siding, insulation, electrical, framing, drywall, painting, carpeting, roofing, and HVAC. The family was all involved and we did 90% of the work ourselves. The project is a work in progress but took approximately three months to complete
Of interest to this group was that I ran 100 AMP service from my house out to the garage. Each wall was put on a 20 amp breaker and the outside lights, receptacle, and HVAC were put on its own breaker. Also of importance was that I had a total of 18 outlets wired up in that room. I also felt it was important to put 5 of them up high for neon signs and wall hanging TV. I also ran a CAT 6 ethernet cable out to the garage and put a wireless router out there. The room also features LED smart lighting, smart tv, and smart HVAC.
My current game room was in my basement and to get games in and out of my house I would have to remove the frame on the door to get the machines through it. It was always a little easier bouncing them down the steps but was difficult to get them back up. I now have a great space to present and play my games. I always like to have a winter project or two, so now I have a nice climate-controlled environment to work in.
I attached pictures for everyone to look at.
