A popular trend has hit the real estate or redecorating market – or one might claim that a trend has resurfaced. Men are creating rooms for themselves. A recent article in MSN real estate says, “Ninety-eight percent of men want a space of their own — and the other 2% lie about it,” says Sam Martin, author of the forthcoming book, “Manspace: A Primal Guide to Marking Your Territory.”
The article points out the centuries ago a man’s space was common – billiard rooms, smoking rooms, and more recently the shed or garage. Statistics seem to support Martin’s hunch. Tuff Shed, the Denver manufacturer of storage sheds and garages, has seen its sales shoot from 20,000 in 2003 to 50,000 in 2005.
