The Adventure - Creating The Games Room



  • Hi Guys,

    I'm a new streamer with a 10 year dream that I am finally putting into action, what is this plan you may be wondering? The plan was to have a games room, a man cave, a area for myself.

    Funds have always been low, everything I have done has been self funded but I took the dive and started to create the dream, my games room.

    So where is this games room located? The games room is located in my garage, I have converted 3/4 of the garage into a games room.

    This has required me to get some guys in to take out the garage door, build a wall with windows whilst I created the dry walls, installed the installation and put the plaster board up.

    I have hired a plasterer to plaster the room, I have primed and painted the room myself, my cousin is doing the electrics and hopefully once I get the carpet down, the furniture purchased and the room completed then I can start to put my self in my streams.

    Here are images of the work. I will update this with the complete product.

    Anyone wondering how much I have sunk into this project, I reckon it's been around £3000 (this includes having the whole room furnished) doing all the work myself and having my friends in the trade getting me the materials on discount.

    On average for my area if I had gotten a professional in to do the work and have the whole room completed/furnished it would have been around £5000.

    Any of you guys have a man cave/games room? show me your pictures.

    So what do I have left to do?

    • The electrics need installing, the 3 spot lights and 2 plug sockets to connect
    • The carpet needs laying down
    • Skirting board to install
    • Door frame to install (door is already installed though need to add handle to it)
    • TV to put in

    Finally you will see this room in my streams :) I hope you have enjoyed my adventure.

    DAAAAMMMNNNNNNN that sounds like a lot of work. No images are loading for me, not sure why but I can't wait to see the final project. Let's be honest, every streamer wants their own cave for streaming :D



  • @halios00 cheers pal, yeah it's taken ages, I spent an hour a day at times in that room cutting the wood, cutting the insulation and putting everything up with zero experience but I have always wanted it/talked about it so it was time I just did it

    I will be happy as anything to show off the final product when it is fully complete.

    If anyone else is having images problem where there not showing could you please tell me as they are working for me but I am unaware if anyone else is having problems



  • @halios00 yeah your right my friends are saying the same that the images won't load, I'll upload them to my server tonight and edit the post, I'll reply again giving you an update so you can see them



  • @EternalNavHD Whoa!That's a lot of work,just by reading the sentences.I can't see any images though.



  • @amsyarZeRo thank you for the read pal and the heads up on images, I will upload the images to my server after work and re tag them

    I will give you another reply so you get an update that there available to see and can view them ^_^



  • @halios00 okay I have uploaded the images to my own server now, this should work now.



  • @amsyarZeRo images are now on my own server so they should show now.



  • @EternalNavHD Whoa,really really lot of work to do.I do see you as a persevere person.

    The picture on number 4 looks like you're holding a drill,and I didn't know you had game item collectibles like in picture number 6.



  • @amsyarZeRo Aha yeah very true, I got skirting board yesterday and laid some of that down as all the painting is done, got a few lengths to cut today and skirting board will be done.

    Waiting on guy to come back with quote to lay carpet down so getting close.

    And yeah I got a lot of gaming collectables & Dragonball Z figures lol.

    The room is coming along nicely, hopefully electrics get done this week too :D.
