As you probably know already, posting to your close friends’ and family’s Facebook walls is almost as important as attending the family Christmas dinner or attending your cousin’s wedding. However, you cannot just slap down a “Happy Birthday, George! Love you! xoxo” because that makes you look like you don’t actually care, and you really don’t have it in you to write a long, heart-felt letter to them because…that is just weird to do on Facebook, unless you’re a 13 year old girl trying to impress her crush. There is one universal language that even the most inexperienced internet surfers are proficient in: memes. That’s right, from Doge to Caveman Spongebob, we all can get a good giggle out of those bold-faced beauties. Here are 18 killer memes that will make you seem like you actually care about Aunt Helen’s 64th birthday, or that will make up for the fact that you totally forgot they existed until you got the notification that their birthday was today.

Your garage has the potential for much more than a place to park your car. In all honesty, it holds an opportunity to create a space to do the things you love and gain a little private sanctuary from the pressure and anxiety of everyday life. King products are manufactured in the USA by King Electrical Manufacturing Co., an electric heat manufacturing company based in Seattle, WA since 1958. More information about King Electrical Manufacturing Co. is available at www.king-electric.com.

Follow these basic steps and start enjoying your garage this Winter.

Step 1: To Insulate or Not to Insulate
Heating a space without insulation can be very inefficient. Without retaining the heat generated, the only way you’ll get that garage to warm up is by cranking up the heater to overwhelm the offsetting heat loss. The best long-term solution is to insulate your garage.

There is a bright side to this, however! The King KB Eco2S heater automatically adjusts heat output depending on the rooms heat loss, if insulation isn’t in your budget today, you can insulate over time and improve the efficiency of your space.

The easiest and least expensive way to make your garage more energy efficient is filling the walls with a fluffy layer of fiberglass. All it takes is a utility knife, a straightedge, and a little patience to make sure the insulation completely fills the stud cavity, side to side and top to bottom, without being overly compressed.

Also consider adding an insulated garage door, with polyurethane insulation and a steel layer on the back to offer the best R value. Additionally, you may want to think about a garage door screen that would open up your man cave to give you access to driveway grilling and that summer breeze.

 

Step 2: The Floor
If you plan on spending a lot of time in your man cave, you may want to consider changing the floor. Applying stone epoxy flooring directly over your concrete, instantly transforms the look and feel of your man cave. Stone epoxy is easy to clean, durable, slip-resistant, and great looking all at the same time.

At the very least lay down a large rug to provide you and your buddies a supportive, forgiving flooring that doesn’t make your knees ache.
Step 3: The Ceiling
If you prefer the rustic look of open rafters in your man cave, then skip this section. However, if you’re planning on adding some lighting over your new pool table you’ll want to finish the ceiling with drywall and paint.
Step 4: Heat the space with King’s KB Eco2S smart garage heater.
It’s simple. Just follow this chart to pick the correct size heater and maximize the comfort in your garage.

Step 5: Pick a Theme
The best man caves focus on a single subject. This is chance to build the room of your dreams so make a plan, repurpose what you already have and purchase the rest. To keep costs low, use items you already have such as memorabilia, furniture, and that spare big screen TV you have in storage from your bachelor days.
Now go forth and plan, build and create the man cave of your dreams. Here are some ideas to get you started

  • Car Collector’s Dream EscapeIf you’re using your man cave as a place to rebuild muscle car then you need a sturdy and durable heater to keep your space warm. The KB ECO2S is rugged and can hold up to anything wrench you can throw at it.
