Backyard Design Ideas That Double as Man Caves
After you huddle inside to watch the Super Bowl this coming Sunday, and treat your best love to a happy Valentine’s Day, you can begin planning a backyard upgrade that doubles as a man cave.
After all, the end of this month our favorite baseball teams head south to Florida to get in shape. As they practice, you, too, can get in shape by design/building an outdoor retreat perfect for watching baseball’s early games.
“The heart of any man cave is, of course, a large TV,” says Dave Stockwell. “Today’s LED televisions can be properly encased to be theft-free. We are expert at encasing the TV carefully to ensure the proper internal temperature control/circulation needed to protect it.”
An example of a Deck and Patio project that doubles as a man cave boasts just such a protected TV — and — a hot tub set into their new multi-level deck. An added fire pit means our client can enjoy the space well before and after the summer months.
While ideal as a man cave, there’s no denying the rest of the family enjoys time out there, too. So let’s say, when it comes to game nights, this retreat doubles as a man cave!
Televisions available for outside use resist rain, dust and other elements. So even in very bad weather, these Deck and Patio clients can turn on their fire pit, relax in their hot tub, and even watch TV.
Man Cave with Walls and Roof
When building the following pool house, these Deck and Patio clients asked us for “two” separate outdoor rooms. One of the spaces includes a 20-by-20 flat screen TV and refrigerator. It’s also adjacent to a new outdoor kitchen — which pretty much completes an ideal man cave.
Pool House with Man Cave Space: The property’s pool is located far from the house so they wanted plenty of amenities in the adjacent pool house. Along with a bathroom, washer/dryer and shower, and screened porch, there is a terrific space loaded with amenities for kicking back with friends to watch games.
Four Seasons Room
Another project with walls and roof, and that doubles as a man cave, is the following fully-enclosed Four Seasons Room. With this special space, in addition to this year’s baseball season, you’ll even be able to watch next year’s Super Bowl outside.
The completed four seasons room not only harmonizes with their home, but as well as having screens, it boasts fully operating windows, automated Mitsubishi ductless heating and air conditioning, a flat screen television, and enough room for their young child to use his ride-on toys. No matter the season, this outdoor room’s large Anderson windows offer a 360-degree view of their lovely property.
Snow or rain, cold or heat, this man cave is always just the right temperature. And most importantly, it has a large screen TV.
So game on, everybody! Enjoy the Super Bowl, and then get planning the perfect space to watch all sports events.

Comfortable seating near the grill completes the perfect man cave space. (Okay, the family will want to spend time there, too.)
