    I am moving into my brand new house in another week. I finally have a dedicated "fan cave" aka finished room over the garage. It is not the largest fan cave, but it will be all mine. It is 12 x 22 dimensions.

    I have the packers paint colors picked out and will be doing that first. I also have maybe a dozen or so pieces of packers gear to go in the room, mainly on the walls. Just want to know if any of you have any more ideas for me? I am only going to go with a 46" flat screen TV, I don't want to overwhelm the room with a 55+. Keep in mind I don't really have enough room for a pool table. Thanks, any input is welcome.

    Forget the player's heads and just go with models.

    Go with a floor you don't mind peanut shells on. Also spilled beverages. Possibly a grilling corner, bar, fridge, poker table, one wheelchair whether you need it or not. Network access w/ wireless keyboard and large monitor or projector to blog and watch.

    Just an update: Moved into the brand new house and ordered about 9 packer items from walmart.com for the fan cave . Just for anyone else that wants/needs packers gear......holy crap walmart.com has a mega selection of gear. I went through 50+ pages of packers decor. Just search green bay packers decor on the walmart site and you will see a boat load of stuff.

    LOL... thanks smokey. It is 99% finished IMO. I am just slowly gathering packers items to display in the room. No bar, only a beer frig, bar would take up to much room. TV is only a 47", didn't want to go toooo big and kill wall space. I have roughly 47 packer related items in the room so far and have painted the lower walls packer green. I also did a field goal post around the double window in yellow. Next I am painting up the ceiling fan blades ...that should look trippy lol. Got man cave signs up as well. I have 2 other packers fans in my new neighborhood (strange for NC,right?) and we have been grilling out on sundays and chillin out in the fan cave for the game. So, it is the envy of my new packers pals to say the least.

    Just a recommendation ... the Packers Pro-shop has some really nice commercial grade carpeting consisting of the Packers logo ... I priced it out for my family room -- my wife about shat nickles (forcing me to buy a coin roller) and put the ol' kibosh on it....but a smaller area might not cause your wife's eyes to bulge out... too much...

    http://www.carpet-wholesale.com/ite...cense_Sports/NFL_License/Greenbay_Packers.php

    HJ Martin and Sons used to sell it but I didn't see it on their website.

    Thanks man, sure would be nice to have that GBP carpet, but in about 6 months time it will have hardwood floors put down.

    Ooo-Ooo-Oooo .... a woman on a mission. :) Where was she a couple of weeks ago when I couldn't get rid of a lost racing pigeon that staked claim to my back yard? Pigeons... kittens ... same thing. All they do is eat and crap ... however, that pigeon was in real danger of ending up browned laying aside a really tangy orange sauce...

    When I am really busy at work trying to keep a lot of crazy stuff corralled, I refer to it as "Juggling flaming kittens..." which is a lot more descriptive than just saying: "Yeah, I'm trying to get 25 cats to walk in a parade". Needless to say, there are cat loving women at work who just don't get the comparison. ;) I'm always poking the hornet's nest it seems (I sure hope I didn't upset someone who loves hornets with that last comment. ;) ) Bwahahaha hahahaha... haha... *sigh*

    I have a Jets lamp that has six heads, 3 green 3 white, I'm sure a Packers one with green and yellow lighting would make the room even more Packer-esq.
