CALLING ALL LADIES!!! Men have had their time in the sun with their man caves and now ladies, it’s your turn. Women, you’ve had this pent-up need, being the woman of the house, to finally get some space all to yourself. And here it finally is – in the form of the she shed. Ladies, as the weather has been warming up, the idea born from Pinterest, has blown up in popularity. And who can blame a lady? The she shed is a woman’s backyard retreat, serving as a gardening shed, artist studio, backyard sanctuary, home office, sewing room or a myriad of purposes across the spectrum. Whatever its use, the she shed is a personal getaway, a lady haven, and a summertime escape from the noise, stress and daily toils of managing a household, a career and everything you could possibly imagine.

Across the country, women are transforming their backyard sheds into she sheds. During the transformation process, whether the shed is being built from scratch, designed and built by professionals, or if it is simply being revamped, the end product is always completely in line with each individual woman’s vision. According to Erika Kotite, author of She Shed: A Room of Your Own, all she sheds should consist of the basics: a backyard, purpose, budget, natural light, door, shared style with the house and ambience. With that being said, she sheds come in all shapes, styles and sizes as the design of the shed fits a purpose all the while matching the one of a kind personality of you!
Carefully planned features, such as a pond zen-like sanctuary is its own “do not disturb” sign to the outside world and helps bring out the personality of your shed. Ideas from around the web and designers can help bring out the personality and function of your new favorite space, whether it be an artist shed, inspiration shed, reading shed or even a yoga shed, the she shed is your space, a space designed by you, for you.
