    Several months ago I started building a new gun room/"man cave"/reloading room. Wanted to incorporate all the latest gadgets and technology. Should be completed in a few more weeks. Unfortunately these projects always seem to go over budget....could have had a couple more guns for what this is costing.

    Features:
    - Central Vacuum system
    - Compressed air lines
    - Wide screen cable TV/DVD/radio sytem
    - Computer system
    - Keypad lock system on door
    - No permanent benches
    - Storage, storage, & more storage (for all those things that clutter benches)
    - Closet for hunting clothes
    - Wall mount gun rack for firearms being worked on

    Anything else I should add?

    Thats a very sharp setup, I wish I had room for something like that.
    Dress the walls up a bit and your set!

    Nice work, tile those walls, put a sink in and you'll have a kitchen.

    Seriously, you need some propoganda posters, targets with clover leaves and some reloading data posters to finish it off. Nice cabinets, were they cheap?

    Man, that looks great. My gun room is just wood paneling and linoleum flooring with shop lighting. The wood walls look fine as they are. Great job!!

    Looks like you have wall space there by the reloaders for a couple of Dillion's fine looking calendars. Good looking room.

    Happy landings!

    Not something you'd want to watch the Superbowl on, but it "is" a wide screen TV....all 7".

    Martini came from a gun shop in Kabul, Afghanistan.....my son sent it back. Possibly a rifle used in one of the many battles for the Khyber Pass.

    Upper wood cabinets are inexpensive, can hardly build anything for what they get for these.

    Lower roll cabinets and benches all came from Sams Club.

    The room is in a corner of the basement.....sound familiar? Women of the house always seem to chase us manly types to the basements. At least I can scratch myself and belch in peace now.

    Great room!

    I am currently building a Garage/Work Shop with living space above and my plan is to have a gun room on the second floor. I don't need to worry about cabinets as that is what I do. I am a cabinet maker. What does interest me the most is the nice rolling tool carts you have. Where did you get them and how much are they if you don't mind me asking. It also appears that your benches are seperate from the cabinets and the tops are butcher block. The legs they sit on look very sturdy. Where did you get those?

    Sams Club had the tool carts and benches. As best as I can remember...
    Big tool boxes with drawers .....$300 each
    Smaller boxes wo/drawers........$165 each
    Work benches........................$200-250 each?
    Stools .................................$ 50 each

    All have maple butcher block tops, smaller boxes roll out for additional work space.

    Rembrandt,

    If you don't mind me asking, what do you do for work?

    I need to get into your line of work!

    Very nice.

    No offense, but since my wife does a lot of fire scenes, I have to suggest that using plywood for wall material may not be the best idea. Gypsum wall board is a much better fire barrier.

    I like your setup! You've done good work and you'll never regret the effort.

    I HAD a gun room. Not near as nice as what we've seen here. Wifey never went to the basement. I was happy. Then she brought in some shelves...then two more...now she has 90% of a 15X18 room! I have barely enough room for the safe, loading bench, and one shelf set for supplies. :scrutiny: what happened!? All was good...then BAM! got pushed out.

    Looks like yours is well set up...hope you can keep it FOR GUNS! :D

    Mark.

    I thought it looked like a kitchen, too much wood in my opinion for a gun room. It's missing character, I would love a gun room like the one in the movie "Boondock Saints" brought a tear to my eye.

    It looks nice but just doesn't convince me yet, maybe once your done.

    Good job though!:D

    Hello all,
    I have a suggestion, but maybe you have it planned already.
    Where is the hand towel despenser?
    I'm always getting my hands dirty in the reloading room, with cleaning guns, handling bullets, brass, other equipment. So you need at least one hanging towel despencer somwhere.

    Isn't Kabul one of those places where they make imitation guns? Could this be a counterfeit? remember seeing it on TV talking about when the mujahadin were fighting the soviets. They were copying all kinds of weapons and had street markets set up. Might not have been Kabul though.

    Very slick job.

    I'm still putting my ideas on paper for converting the office. Sadly I'm sold on the Lista brand cabinets we use at work, gonna have to finance those or wait quite a while.

    Did you add any additional ventilation? A quiet, hi-cap bath exhaust fan may be in order to handle chemical fumes, etc.

    Thats a great looking setup you got there. Been wanting to do someting along those lines for a while now. I just never have the time, money, or space.

    Oh well.... I will get it done sometime...

    Just out of curiosity how big is the room?
