What is a “She Shed”?
A “She Shed” is a tiny house separate from the home and about the size of a shed. “She Sheds” are the women’s answer to the man cave to escape and enjoy her favorite activities or a quiet place to relax.
This is the women’s private and personal space to enjoy without leaving her home. The woman designs her retreat with her favorite things and hobbies.
How to build a “She Shed”
There are different options when adding a Shed. Since there popularity over the years there are Shed Kits you can buy and put together yourself or you can purchase an already built Shed.
Some women have one built from scratch and design it themselves. Whatever you decide be sure you check with your HOA and city for any restrictions.
Some things to consider:
- What will be the purpose of your Shed?
- Do you need electricity or plumbing?
- Determine the space for the inside furnishings.
- Where will you place the Shed?
- Are you going to add windows or a porch?
Then have fun decorating with paint, shelves and anything else to make it your own.
“She Shed” Decorating Ideas
If you are decorating a “She Shed” it should be a relaxing space that you customize for your enjoyment. Make it fun without spending a fortune with some paint and personal items. Or if you prefer you can upgrade with new furniture, art and accessories. Some women take it to the next level by adding plumbing, windows, porches and more.
Design your “She Shed” for making pottery or an art studio. “She Sheds” are also used for a reading room or an office where you won’t be interrupted by everyday distractions.
