STEP 1: PLAN, PLAN, PLAN
Start top-to bottom and plan for your Dad’s perfect man cave. Keep the dimensions of your garage in mind and think about which leisure activities are most relaxing for your Dad.
Does he love working out at home? Get a treadmill or weights set in there. Dreaming of bingeing your favourite shows or enjoying the footy uninterrupted? You’ll want a big TV and the comfiest couch you can find – or maybe a massage chair.
STEP 2: INSULATION IS KEY!
Once you have a plan, it’s time to get to work! Adding insulation will make the room cosy year-round and reduce your heating and cooling costs. Why not add some sound proofing so he can crank the volume as much as they want? There’s no end of cladding choices, whether you want your own rustic log-cabin or something sleek and modern, you’ll be able to transform your space completely. Your 18V Drill Driver will help you get the job done!
STEP 3: DON’T FORGET THE FLOORING
Make sure you don’t forget the floor – laying down some new boards makes all the difference to both the look and functionality of your new domain. A layer of carpet or some comfy rugs can also make his den the perfect place to kick off the shoes and relax.
A reno like this can be dirty work, so have a look at some of our tools for the clean-up. The 18V Cordless Wet & Dry Vacuum / Inflator Kit will help you get the dust under control fast, so you can get to the important part – enjoying your new space.
