you guys know I have spent the last six months building this underground vault room, well its almost done! Here are the photos of the room before I install the stairs because I wont be able to get anything big in after that. I hope you enjoy them. Its broken down into American stuff, All ruski including the SKS, German with my pride and joy the 34, and 42, and finally the commercial stuff. I still dont know how to imbed the pics so if anyone wants too I would appreciate it. Ken

How’d you work the stairs/entry? and Where are you storing the ammo? :43:

This is beyond cool!

I'm not sure I could get away with that in my city.

How are you dealing with air circulation? I see some pipes that seem to be for that, but are you using fans at all?

I thought that would be cool to put net to the German arms. Uhh maybe not...

Nothing wrong with it. People are just getting their "pc" panties in a twist.

Don't let the PC police get you down. That's part of the history of those arms...we all look for Waffenamts on our K98's right?

Again, awesome hangout!

Cool room! If you crank your amp up, can the SG be heard outside at all?

06-30-2012, 8:55 PM
This is Ken's wife. Now that he has the man cave, I may never see him again. It was so much fun coming up with ideas for the room and if your wife lets you have one too, get an intercom! I can now have a real dining room table instead of a poker table, and soon I will have a workshop above as access to his playroom. It's win win. Besides, if you have all those awesome guns, it's way more fun to have them on display! How many times have you taken them out of your safe and set them out to look at them? :)

So, do your friends always let you win at cards? I'd be a little...intimidated to throw down a full house on you in that room! ;)

Those Peaveys look like they could blow the rifles off the wall, too.

I'm sure you'll come up with some cool ways to continue the decoration, especially since you've got your theme walls. You can probably find some cool reproduction propaganda war posters for each theme.

Awesome room and amazing collection! Congratulations.

A few comments...

1. Mrs. Ken, if you and Ken ever have a falling out and leave each other, will you marry me?

2. This cave is top notch, really a nice job. My only niggle is that I am a cinematographer and you really missed an opportunity to install state of the art, atmospheric, amazing lighting that would have added a lot to your beautiful room. This PFs above all of your beautiful guns throw off an ugly, nasty one-dimensional flat light. Just a nitpick, the room is amazing.

I would like to see the vault door and stairs if you don't mind. Also, what are you doing for your HVAC & dehumidification? Please let us know. Nice touch with the wood finishes by the way.

Those speakers look like they may be just big enough for the room. :laugh:

But where's the fridge?

Needs a lot more GUNS. There is a bunch of empty wall space.

Other then that it looks really nice.

You really need more guns though. I have more in my sock drawer :p

I thought that would be cool to put net to the German arms. Uhh maybe not...

I think having it on top of the Amp instead of posted on the wall, gives it a mixed signal. I will admit I was thinking the same thing too, but didn't realize what you were attempting to do until you expained it.

I would place other examples on the other gun/rifle sections since you have them separated by country.

But of course, that is my own 2 cents and Opinion.......In the end....I still think it's a very cool man/gun cave/gallery.
