As most television aficionados know, the only shows worth watching these days are HBO's "The Sopranos" and PBS's "This Old House." How can you not love programs that celebrate men who work with their hands? In fact, The Smoking Gun dreams of a TV series that would combine elements from our two favorite shows. It could be called "This Old Clubhouse."

In that spirit, we offer these free floor plans for the homeowner looking to spruce up that unfinished basement or spare bedroom. Rendered by FBI agents, the drawings depict the layouts of three Mafia social clubs in New York City. From the stark minimalism of a Mulberry Street hangout to the shabby chic of Vincent "Chin" Gigante's Triangle Social Club, the drawings offer a variety of design ideas for the handyperson who idolizes both Norm Abram and Tony Soprano. But feel free to put the card table anyplace you want. And, of course, the police scanner is optional.
