ALL DONE AND DUSTED

At last the man cave renovations are done. More has been done since the last post on this topic. So I am about to bore you with the details.
The man cave is situated under the house at the right hand side. It has its own entrance and access from the garage. The front door to the house is at the left hand side.

The window frames of the cave had started to flake so the man gave them a dose of spray paint.

 We finally got the new blue blinds installed.

 Remember how it was?

 The new look man cave, with movie themed pictures and room for students learning how to make movies.

Just in case you didn't notice the red flowers (the man needed a bit of convincing to put flowers in a man cave to offset the video light on the other side.)

In the past the man would keep the windows shut and the blinds shut to stop glare on the screens. Hence the name cave but I have nagged him to open the windows when he has students there and why would you close the blinds to such a pretty view. Soooooo................

He set about making fly screens for the windows. It is done now and all is finished.
