Home Plans with Walkout Basements

Looking for home plans with a basement for your "man cave", game room, or hang-out area?

We're seeing more homes that incorporate a walk-out basement with opportunities for creating a "man cave" game room.

Man Cave Idea #1: Game Room with lots of windows

This basement has a wall of windows with views to your mountain-front lot, a wall of built-in bookcases for easy storage, and a wall for your flat screen TV setup.

Man Cave Idea #3: Upstairs Media Room

Your man cave doesn't need to go underground. Consider converting a bonus room or bedroom into your personal space.

Personalize that space with a navy accent wall, ready for a flat screen TV.

Man Cave Idea #5: Private Room Past the Bonus

If you're looking for more privacy and seclusion, consider floor plans that have a room located through the bonus room - at the far end of your home.

If you're searching for a Raleigh basement home, keep in mind that while walk-out basements are fairly common in the Triangle area of North Carolina, traditional full basements are not usually recommended.  

If your lot is sufficiently sloped, an unfinished or finished basement can offer lots of additional square footage, at a much lower cost per square foot than for "above ground" square footage.
