Move Over Man Caves, ‘She Sheds’ Are Taking Storm Now

Posted on Jul 21 2015 - 9:30am by Paige Tepping

Alright ladies, if you’ve just about had it with the man cave trend that’s been taking the industry by storm the last few years, it’s time to put your foot down and demand your very own space. And no, we’re not talking about your bedroom sanctuary that hosts a reading nook where you can go to escape the daily grind and lose yourself in a good book. We’re talking she sheds.

It may sound silly, but she sheds are popping up in backyards across the nation as women look outside the confines of their own home for a space that’s all theirs. It’s the (totally acceptable?) grown up version of claiming a space and then posting a ‘no boys allowed’ sign prominently on the door.

Much like the pub sheds we blogged about earlier this year, she sheds are the latest craze in the battle to add a touch of personality to any and every space. Whether you’re looking for a tranquil environment to practice yoga, a quiet space to work on your writing or just a place to get away from the stresses that come with your day-to-day routine, she sheds run the gamut from rustic to extravagant.

Need a little inspiration? Check out these pictures that we found on the Lighter Side of Real Estate and start planning what your she shed will look like today!

    Hi Ladies,

    I am a man (married 46 years to my high school sweetheart – not at all feminine) and I can appreciate my clients desires for man caves but would rather be in the “she sheds” than in a dungeon.

    Go Girls!

    Keith and Sharon Whitfield
