Put the ‘She’ in Shed

While backyard sheds, detached garages, and other outdoor storage buildings might sound like the perfect spaces for men, you might be surprised to learn that many of our customers are women.

Whether they like to garden, have a craft or hobby they enjoy, need a place to focus, or just want a place to relax and unwind outside the home or office, modern women are turning the “man-cave” concept into a personal space of their own: the “she-shed.”

Everyone needs space to pursue their interests, and women are no different. Whether you desire a comfortable place to gather with friends, or a private room to seek peace and quiet, a high-quality outdoor shed provides the perfect starting point. With a bit of creativity and a little construction, you can easily create a she-shed of your very own.

Start by deciding how much space you’ll need and then choose a style that suits you. From cottages and lofted barns, to contemporary lean-tos, you have lots of options in shed styles. You can also choose from materials like wood, vinyl siding, and metal, and add all sorts of features such as windows and additional doors, and even decks and covered porches

Once you’ve selected the shed you want, you can customize the colors for the exterior walls and trim. Hang drywall inside and add an electrical package to make your she-shed a cozy nook for privacy. Apply some creative design tips to give it a comfortable atmosphere. Soon, you’ll have a space that resembles a small house with many of the comforts of home—all to your own.

There are tons of ways you can use your she-shed: as a reading room, a home office, a personal gym or yoga studio, a craft or art studio, or whatever activity you desire. Indulge yourself, hang out with friends, or just get away from it all for an hour or two. Your she-shed is a reflection of you, your personality, and what brings you pleasure in life.
