The Art of Manliness has featured two posts (here and here) on the unique structures and rooms created by men for their work. Some of them are opulent; many are not. Most of them have allowed men a place to think deep thoughts, read great books, and perhaps pen timeless words.
Many of us may not have a “man cave.” The future may allow us such a privilege. We don’t need much, though. Take Thoreau’s cabin to the left. Nothing fancy, but there’s something which calls to a man’s soul in a room like that. $28.12 was all it took, and he got a fireplace in the bargain. Not bad.
