Every Man Needs a Man Cave

Okay, so that’s not really true.  Let’s amend it, then.  Lots of men “want” a man cave.

The Art of Manliness has featured two posts (here and here) on the unique structures and rooms created by men for their work.  Some of them are opulent; many are not.  Most of them have allowed men a place to think deep thoughts, read great books, and perhaps pen timeless words.

Many of us may not have a “man cave.”  The future may allow us such a privilege.  We don’t need much, though.  Take Thoreau’s cabin to the left.  Nothing fancy, but there’s something which calls to a man’s soul in a room like that.  $28.12 was all it took, and he got a fireplace in the bargain.  Not bad.

    Andrew Carnegie’s was pretty awesome.

    I’d prefer Spurgeon’s library as an ideal ‘man cave’ in the truest sense…
