We’ve all heard of the man cave and even perhaps the diva den.  Now we enter the era of the she shed.  It is generally the man that takes over the garage and calls it his own.  Now women can have their own space detached somewhat from the home.  Introducing the She Shed; the answer to the Man Cave.  The she shed can be a garden shed conversion or any outside structure that a woman can call her own.  Here is a selection of various she sheds to inspire you to create your own space.

The she shed only requires a small space and a bit of imagination.  If you have space in your backyard, you can construct or purchase a ready made shed and design it to accommodate the type of place you wish it to be.

For the busy mom or businesswoman who never seems to have enough time for herself, the she shed can offer a space that is away from it all but within a short walking distance from home…actually, a short walk from the back door.  The lady of the house can enjoy a little reading, television or just hanging out with a friend in her she shed.

Of course, the garden shed can be just a garden shed.  It can be the place where you store the gardening tools and supplies, re-pot plants and become inspired.  This space can also be a she shed for the woman who loves to garden and spends hours nurturing the garden.
