Brantley Gilbert Reveals DIY Garage Renovation: The “Dawg House”

During the COVID-19 pandemic stay at home protocols, Brantley Gilbert was able to pursue a longtime dream: renovating his garage into a man cave.

The Country star is featured in this week’s PEOPLE magazine. He explains, “I really just wanted a place of my own where I knew where everything was and I’m out of my wife’s hair.”

Dubbed the “Dawg House” after Gilbert’s favorite team, the Georgia Bulldogs, it’s a space where he can write and record music, throw parties, and unwind after a long day at work.

He says enlisted the help of his friends and crew members to help build and decorate the Dawg House.  He put in the work as well building the walls and insulating the building with his dad.

“If I wouldn’t have put in some blue-collar work out here, these boys wouldn’t let me live it down. They weren’t going to let me stand around and point,” he says. “That’s not really how it works off the road or on the road. These boys hold me accountable.”
