Ultimate Man Cave

Austin, TX

Inspired by the 80’s classic “Ferris Bueller’s Day off”, Mark Ashby Design teamed up with Dalgleish Construction Company and Shiflet Architects to bring this fantasy to life. The three-story structure includes a custom car lift that will carry a car from basement to mezzanine and a rare restored vintage BMW artfully mounted to the basement wall. The custom neon sign was created in the clients own handwriting and says it all … “Live for the journey, not the destination”. The vintage-inspired decor and high-end sound system made for the ultimate man cave.
