Step 3: LightingS

We're building a man cave here, but that doesn't mean that we want to pretend like we're spelunking every day. This is a place where you'll be working on your cars, motorcycles, boat, World War II vintage aircraft, so we're gonna need to light this bitch up. By no means do we need stadium-style retina-straining über-lighting, but a nice set of hanging fluorescent bulbs would do nicely. Pair them up with some recessed canister lights for the outer edges and dimmer switches and you've got yourself a nice variably lit man cave.

About.com has a nice article explaining the ins and outs of recessed canister lighting. (Image Via TeamSpeed)
