JAC knows you have heard of man caves, so what is a she shed you ask. Well women can now have their own special place to escape with she sheds! Gone are the days of the man shed full of gardening equipment and tools as the she sheds are now ruling supreme. Outdoor she shed design ideas are aplenty. They can be used as office spaces, art studios, guest rooms, party rooms, craft studios, exercise rooms, or simply a place to read, relax, meditate, or entertain. The possibilities are endless. Here are some stylish she shed ideas.
Before building your modern outdoor living area or she shed, be sure to check with local building codes and requirements. Most sheds need to fall under 200 square feet. Most sheds also need to fall in line with the city’s set backs and height restrictions. Consider what you want your she shed to be used for and plan from there. Find your color inspiration or for instance, if you are an artist then an abundance of natural light is important. Adding sky lights, a glass ceiling or a multitude of windows is important.
Sheds can be built from ground up by a contractor or you can purchase a pre-fabricated shed and have it delivered to your home. In either case, consider the placement and surroundings and how you would like the shed’s design to flow into the yard’s environment. Landscaping around the shed can be just as important as decorating the interior of the shed. Extend vegetable gardens around the shed, add flower filled window boxes, pergolas, decks, mini-patios, or even water features to help create the ultimate outdoor oasis. Be a she shedder!
