Home 113. House Talk: the “She Shed” is the New “Man Cave”

Over the years, we’ve seen so many neat (and unusual) features in the thousands of homes we’ve visited. Recently we were in a Barrington home with a Man Cave that would make any man jealous. It inspired us to go online and find some really cool decor ideas for a “Man Cave“, and made us wonder if there was a such thing as a female version. And…there is!

Have you ever seen a “She Shed”? If not, here are a few examples of “She Sheds” including a beautifully done tea room, a zen relaxation area that looks perfect for napping, a tiny greenhouse and even a retro, 1950’s style diner. Cool, right?

We’re taking a poll: please leave a comment below and let us know if this is the FIRST time you have ever heard the term “she shed”. It was a first for us. Better yet, if you have an image that you’d like to share of your own Barrington “She Shed” or “Man Cave”, please forward it to us at Luby@TheLubyGroup.com. With your permission, we’ll collect the images we receive and share them in a future post!

If you are looking for more “She Shed” inspirations, Pinterest and Houzz are both great places to check out.
