Gender Spaces: The "Mancave"

Back in August, we wrote about the gender based "manspace":
...the private or semi private place where the man of the house hangs out, relaxes, maybe pursues his hobby, determines its character, and is the gatekeeper as well.
The topic has popped up in major media all year. The most recent mention however is not as a private phenomenon, but as part and parcel of a marketing effort. Yep, the male space, by whatever name, has now become a bone fide product in the housing market.

Todd Carpenter writing at Inman News picked up on the idea as marketed by DR Horton:
As the market continues to slow, builders continue to look for ways to generate more interest in their developments.
Enter, "mancave", by D. H. Horton. The latest in home sales inducements and appointments. With more and more builders attaining junk status, or filing for bankruptcy, who knows what the impact will be, but it's a fun concept.
