Move Over Man Cave: Four Ideas for the Perfect She Shed

Consumed by the everyday stresses of work and family, sometimes women just need a space to enjoy a little “me” time. There’s one place where you can shed some of that stress: your very own She Shed.

She sheds are backyard sheds turned into private nooks that are tailor-made for activities such as painting, reading, crafting, writing or gardening. We have collected four gorgeous she shed ideas that will inspire you to create your own lady haven right in the comfort of your own backyard.

Contemporary Office

Natural Retreat

Talk about upcycling! Surrounded by nature, this rustic shed idea featured on Dwell is covered with exterior siding constructed from a fallen pine tree on the owner’s property. The interior of this quaint shed is painted pale green with white contrasts, which creates a calming feel perfect for reading or writing in your journal. But wait; there’s more! The shed can also serve as a guest bedroom.
