Swag for the man cave

When I was looking for a house to buy I specifically looked for a house where I could have a man cave with a walk-in humidor to enjoy my cigars, my music and my movies. In the apartment where I used to live I smoked in the living room but since everything was on one floor my whole place smelled of old cigar smoke and I wanted to avoid that.

So I found this house, in the town I grew up in, close to my parents and my sister, waterfront garden, 2 minute walk to a supermarket yet not on a busy road that had the perfect set up. The ground floor has a indoor garage and behind the garage there is this room, some call it garden room, some call it sun room but to me its my man cave/office. The living and the kitchen are a storey up, the bedrooms and bathroom even two storeys up so no issues with cigar smoke. As an added bonus the man cave has a double door to the garden so on warm days I can just open the doors and enjoy the fresh air.

Anyhow, I built that walk-in with my father, a friend painted some cigar logo’s on one of the walls and I managed to get some artwork from several companies to dress up the room. My Father Cigars send m an awesome painting, Rocky Patel got me two metal signs, Alec Bradley gave me a table top lighter, two signs and a huge ashtray, Oliva got me a canvas and Jessi Flores hooked me up with several Drew Estate items. Add that to the cigar store indian and the decals I already had I was able to decorate my man cave pretty decent.

But now, today, the doorbell rings and the UPS guy hands me a huge box, and I mean really huge. I see the shipping address and realize it’s from my dear friend Courtney Smith, who works for Cornelius & Anthony and she completely blew my front porch away. I mean, I really have to figure out where to put all the items she send me because they deserve the best spots in the room as they are awesome.

Now what did I get you might ask? I will tell you:
two different ashtrays, a cool poster with Cornelius, a metal Cornelius sign, a beautiful shirt with Cornelius & Anthony logos embroidered  and piece the resistance, a mind blowing woodcarving with the Cornelius & Anthony logo. Pictures just don’t do it justice but I’ll post them anyway.

My man cave & humidor

About three years ago, right after I came back from Nicaragua the first time, I got the keys to house I bought. I bought a place where I could built a man cave and a walk-in humidor.

Before I lived in an apartment and everything smelled of cigar smoke, so I wanted a place where I could smoke cigars without contaminating the rest of my house, the house I bought is perfect. Indoor garage on the ground floor with a extra room, that room I turned into my man cave. First floor is kitchen and living room, second floor three bedrooms and a bathroom.
