Move over Man Caves, Here Come She Sheds

    We’ve all heard of man caves. A specially designated room for the man/men of the house to have a place to watch sports, play video games, do work, and many other things.  Recently, a new home improvement trend called She Sheds has started. What is a she shed? They are the female version of a man cave, a place for women to escape to.


     She sheds are typically just that, a shed placed somewhere in the backyard of a home.  They can be the size of a standard shed or they can be bigger or smaller depending on what you want. The cost to build a she shed isn’t too expensive. Vinyl sheds run about $800-$5,000 and metal sheds run about $300-$2,000. The cost really depends on what you want in the shed and the size. If you already have an old tool shed, greenhouse, or even an old playhouse you can convert them into a she shed and save even more money.

   The purpose of a she shed is the same as a man cave. A place to escape to and relax and think or a place to do work in peace and quiet. With that in mind, think of where you want to put your she shed. It could be hidden away in the garden, or in the open spaces of the backyard. Find what area that will work the best for you to relax or enjoy your hobbies.
