Equip Your Space with These Over-the-Top Gems
GUYS ALWAYS REMEMBER FONDLY THEIR FIRST “PLACE,” whether it was that fort or treehouse they built in the back yard, or their room plastered with rock posters, floor covered in dirty laundry. Later in life, it was the dorm room filled with empty pizza boxes, or a first apartment with a thrift store armchair that saw a lot of ball game/TV time. Maybe it’s something about the male specie, but guys mark their territory with…stuff.
Now, you’re older-“domesticated,” if you willand you’re itching for some semblance of your “special place.” We’ve found the coolest add-ons for your own personal Man Cave. Some are so special that they’re the perfect “inspiration item” (borrowing a design term from the ladies) to build a whole room around. Take a gander, maybe you’ll see something that sends a spark flying.
WOLF 54-INCH GRILL

Serve up an entire meal from this grill equipped with five stainless steel burners that can each be individually controlled, twoposition electric rotisserie and three-position warming rack. www.wolfappliance.com
THE 747 COWLING BAR
The 747 Cowling Bar from MotoArt is made of an authentic cowling that housed a Pratt & Whiney jet engine that once powered the Boeing 747. Pair it with F-4 Ejection Seat barstools to create the “fly”-est Man Cave around.
For the fitness guy, Sunlighten’s mPulse smart saunas are equipped with technology to measure your heartrate and calories burned. There’s also a biofeedback monitor with a 7-inch LCD touch-screen.
BODY SOUND THEATER
She may have rid you of your vinyl easy chair, but even the most hardened spouse will have a difficult time rejecting Body Sound Theater seating. Combining the comforts of home with a top-notch movie theater experience, this luxurious specimen is equipped with head and arm speakers, and is customizable to allow for loveseat, couches, recliners and even multiple rows. Of course, nothing but the best in Italian leather finishes the look and feel.
This futuristic silver seat features nautical lines with lots of rivet details. A salvaged Albatross Float Tank provides the skeleton for this sleek limited-edition sofa.
DIAMOND PLATE KEGERATOR CABINET
Garage Fabricators takes kegerators to a new level of luxury with a 32-inch flatscreen HD TV. It includes a single full keg refrigerator and all plumb- ing hardware with CO2 cylinder.

CUSTOM PUTTING GREEN
For the golfer who wants to move from hacker to ace, a personal putting green, like the one here, designed by Long & Associates, or a personal swing analysis studio might do the trick. Stretching 7 feet wide to 24 feet long, the putting green allows a player to hone putting and chipping skills. The soy-based synthetic turf requires no trimming. www.lai-hawaii.com.
Another, more technical-albeit less picturesque-way would be to have P3ProSwing’s Ace Golf Simulator studio package installed at your home. It comes with everything a golfer would need including a full-sized golf simulator. It’s available for $18,399.99 at www.P3ProSwing.com
