Everyone knows that a dog is a man’s best friend, but that really goes for both men and women. Many agree a car is really a man’s best friend and diamonds are a woman’s best friend.
Well, men now have “Man Caves,” and who said men were the only ones who need, and deserve, a private place to hang out, a retreat that is their own “fortress of solitude?” Well, that has all changed as women now have their own private retreats “She Sheds!”
Ladies, meet the “She Shed”, a backyard “Tiny Cottage”, perfect for getting away, relieving your stresses, reading, writing, gardening, or whatever your heart desires, in the privacy of your own backyard. The perfect way for you to get away without having to get away.
So how do you go about making your “She Shed” a reality? First, decide on the purpose and your budget. That will set the tone for everything you do from that point forward. Do not forget to check your local HOA rules and restrictions and your local zoning rules and regulations. The last thing you want to do is complete your retreat only to have to take it down due to local rules and regulations.
Once you have a purpose and a budget, it is time for trips to antique stores and garage sales to get ideas and even pick up miscellaneous items that can help make your retreat reflect your style and personality. Then it is on to design and layout. Making sure that your “She Shed” reflects your purpose, your budget, and especially your personality.
Once you have made these choices and have decided on the theme for your “She Shed,” it is time to decide if this is a DIY project or a “handyman” project. Either way, the fun really begins when your “She Shed” starts to take shape, and you can visualize yourself enjoying the quiet and comfort it will afford when completed.
Do not forget to search the Internet for ideas. The “She Shed” idea is sweeping the nation, and Texas is leading the way. Some of the most awesome designs originated right here in the DFW area, and of course in this instance, they go against the grain of all things are bigger in Texas!
