Best. ANYTHING . Ever.
Could you please come to my house, lift it up, build a basement, ...
The walls are Luann. That is as close to spanish cedar as I could get. The room is sealed with heavy plastic and insulation with all joints siliconed to keep little bugs from making their way in. There is a small chiller designed for a small wine cellar keeping the room at temp. I use that simple humidifier hanging on the wall (forget the name, its listed in the thread somewhere) with 5 stage, reverse osmosis filtered water going to it. All shelves are made from Spanish Cedar wood. I use a small fan at the bottom of the room to circulate all of the temp and humidity evenly in the room. It is small. But, for well over a year now, it has been 100% trouble free now that I fixed the sediment issue in the water. The temps stay in range. The humidity stays in range and the cigars taste great and age well. I have been pleased.
Some amazing man spaces guys. Something I notices about my Dad and my grandfathers is that they all had their own "space" outside the house. Usually a garage. I have control over the attack, garage, and the front porch (pics to come shortly) are where I do my smoking and drinking. I have been happily married for 19 years. My parents for 43, and my grandparents until death. I strongly believe a man having a place to himself to be a man is key to longevity in a marriage. Or at least that is what I say whenever I add something to my spaces- George
So,, like everything else, ideas vs. reality don't always meet in the middle. I am redoing parts again. Each time I change something, I invite some friends over, we drink some adult beverages, smoke quite a few cigars, and see how everything "feels". It doesn't feel right yet... I am modifying the lounge a bit to allow more conversations and interactions with each other. All in all, I think things are starting to get a lot better in here. I'll post some pictures shortly. Also, I am up for any ideas you may have to improve things.
Scott I am a newbie to Puff. I just got done looking at the beginning of the thread to yesterday post. I just have to congratulate you on building your dream. You sir has achieved what most men dream off, You have a Legacy! If you have the NFL package for the next Sundays I would start charging at the door for a place like that.
Lounge 2.0 pictures. Bit of a work in progress - as the entire project has been. I think this will allow more conversations and more interaction.. As well as an ultra comfortable place to enjoy a cigar and an adult beverage..
