“Never go into a man’s cave or you will be burned by the dragon!” – John Gray, Ph. D.
It starts at a very young age, this need for the male gender to have a space of their own. We can all conjure up the image of a young boy in his tree-house with the sign on the door that reads, “No Girls Allowed.”From this point on, the concept is simply accepted and implemented in his living arrangements; from boyhood to manhood, through high school, college and eventually into the purchase of his first new home.
In trying to understand this phenomenon, we would refer our readers to the book Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, whereby author John Gray, Ph. D. asserts that men, somewhat solitary by nature, will retreat to their “cave” to forget about their problems during times of emotional stress. Anyone who has lived with a male can attest to the fact that there is a transformation that occurs when a male, be he child, adolescent or man, has been allowed to “recharge” in his cave.
Buyers throughout the years transform their flex-rooms into very impressive man-caves. Unlike the dorm room, first apartment or thrown-together cave of the younger years, the luxury man-cave can materialize in many different ways. There will always be men who want their cave to be more like a work space, where they can disassemble and reassemble things at will. From a garage with a beer fridge and transistor radio, to something far more upscale, for these men the possibilities are endless…When a man takes the reins and does the room exactly to his specifications, the results can be astounding. It’s the Dream Garage!
