Joe Adams already had a pool and a gazebo in his backyard, but he wanted a man cave.
Joe’s father-in-law Homer Giles is 92 years old and going strong. With his wife no longer living, Homer lives at his son-in-law’s place and enjoys tackling backyard DIY projects.
Homer and his daughter Jerilyn visited our retail store in Cleburne, Texas. Ulrich sales consultant Aaron Jordan walked them through the process of purchasing a 12x16 Elite Gardener. Homer loved the attractive design of the Elite series shed, as well as the wrap-around loft and heavy-duty construction.
Because their gate is only 10 feet wide, they opted to have the shed built on-site. Both Joe and Homer were amazed at the skill of the crew as the building took shape in their backyard.
Homer is not, by his own admission, a patient person. He set to work, finishing out the interior. The building has insulation, sheetrock, electrical, and plumbing. To give the building a more cave-like feel, they opted for a dark-colored paint. Within about two months of its initial construction, the Elite Gardener became the Man Cave.
Amenities and features include a large TV, a 1940s hand-carved bar, comfortable seating, and lofts outfitted with mattresses for guests.
The Man Cave is not just for men, as it turns out. It's also a favorite spot for the grandkids.
Here at Ulrich, our motto is “Helping families live more memorable and organized lives.” This is definitely one family that’s choosing to live a more memorable life!
