Making Mantown

Introduction: Making Mantown

This is a video I put together of the work I did to create my own man space, affectionately know as "Mantown" by friends and family. I put the video together in 2008, but this is the first time it has been published for public consumption. Be sure to stick around for the tour of the completed space at the end of the video. I hope you enjoy it, and please, Please, PLEASE vote for me!

    I did not make it, I bought it. It is called a Evolution Playseat. Here is a link to the seat on Amazon:

    When I bought mine it was only $200, but they have gone up significantly since they became popular.

    I would normally say this, but considering this IS Mantown, and it's for men, I don't mind publicly saying that if I had a Mantown like that, I'd jizz myself. Atleast once.

    You did an awesome job man. I have respect for you.

    What a specular workspace (and presentation!)

    Very cool indeed!

    I do have one comment, you said that you left carpeting to the pros after months of mudding. Carpeting is the easiest of all renovations. In fact, drywall is more than likely second or third hardest (next to tile and linoleum.)

    You did an amazing job, enjoy it!

    Thanks for the comments. I had never done carpeting before and was gun shy after the mudding. I'm glad I had it done, because I got to watch the installation and know what to do now. There were several splices that had to be done on the carpet and the installers did a beautiful job of joining and blending in the cuts. I've seen plenty of carpets where the splice are obvious and/or coming apart. I have a high degree of confidance that these splices will not come apart or ever be visable.
