    Well it looks like it worked out well in the end. I have a gun room and shop in the basement. My wife doesn't care about it but but often complains about how much time I spend down there. Sometimes you just can't win!

    P.S. I hope you had the good sense to build it with screws instead of nails just in case!

    My better half actually suggested that I build the room - and I always use screws .

    She'll still complain about how much time I spend out there though...

    In the last episode of "Cave of Man"...

    Our intrepid hero, finding the conditions in his garage near intolerable for reloading regardless the season (either too cold, too hot, full of mosquitos or full of spiders and other bugs, or - squirrels!) migrated his reloading operations to the spare bedroom upstairs, bothering no one in the process.

    Life was good and, throughout the hot summer months and inclement weather of Autumn, our hero loaded over 6000 rounds of 9mm, .380, 10mm, .45ACP, .223, and 7.62x39. Life was good.

    It was then, after finding comfort and solace, that his nemesis struck! The monster, known only as "Wyfe", ascended the stair perilous and breached his perimeter, issuing its terrifying battle cry, "LOOKATTHISMESS! WHATSALLTHISCRAPINHERE!". Then the Wyfe roared out the ultimate blasphemy, "THATHOPPES#9STINKS! GETITOUTTAHERE!"; which shattered the heroes resolve.

    Stunned and disheartened, our hero did what any red blooded American would do - he defended himself and his cave from the encroacher; but alas, to no avail - the Wyfe was simply too powerful!

    Defeated, he dragged his battle-worn carcass back out to the garage to lick his wounds - and then it struck him! That garage is simply enormous! He could build himself a new cave! It would be risky, and could provoke the Wyfe yet again, but if done right, could actually maybe even pacify the beast!

    1. How did you get that press mounted sideways like that?

    2. I am not sure calling her a beast will win you points. I would hope WYFE doesn't read the board! Might end up having to move the Man Cave to a tree house...

    Good luck in the construction!

    I personally like the build it in the garage idea best. That way you can put two doors between you and the wife!

    The pic I uploaded was in oriented in the right direction. The photo handler in the forum turned it sideways for me .

    Can't reload like that, the case feeder won't work!
