She Sheds – The Man Cave for Women

We all know men need a place for themselves to escape with their mates or for some general quiet time. Known as the man cave, it’s the place a man hibernates in to recuperate. But what about women? Don’t they deserve to escape to their own place for quiet and relaxation? Enter the she shed. The she shed is the feminine man cave. It’s a hide out for women to escape the daily grind. She sheds are a new trend that are sure to become a popular space for women to work in or lounge in to get away from the busyness of life.

Most she sheds have a purpose. For some it’s a place where they can do art and be creative. For others it’s a place to lounge in silence to read or study.

She Shed Essentials

She sheds can’t be misunderstood as a lady room. Lady rooms are specifically for getting dressed and are usually more commonly known as a dressing room or walk in robe.

The she shed is often housed in a separate building in the yard or side of the house. It could even be in the garage.

Or under an open patio
