Say Yes to a She Shed

Tara Deans, Raleigh Studio Manager

I was thrilled to start hearing this term over the past year. I thought, finally, women get their own version of the “man cave.”

If you search Pinterest, you will find over a thousand pins related to She Sheds. Most are cute little cottages in the back yard, but there’s no reason that the ladies of the house can’t have an escape area, as part of a screened porch, sun-room or the interior. You can make this space special with great flooring, built-in shelving, paint colors, lighting and cozy fabrics on your favorite furniture.

Hectic households often have a mess in every room, which can be stressful instead of rejuvenating or relaxing. It would be so nice to carve out a space in your Ashton Woods home, just for the lady of the house. She Sheds make that possible. What a great escape away from toys, electronics, messes and noise!

It doesn’t have to be big. It could be just a little spot to read, paint, relax and replenish the spirit. Create your She Shed with your favorite relaxing activities in mind. Wish you had more time to read your favorite novel? Turn a study into a mini library. If you want to cultivate your green thumb, a garden loft might be your perfect private space. Whatever transports and rejuvenates the lady of the house, make space for it when designing your Ashton Woods house. The women in your home will thank you! P.S. Make sure you add a keypad lock for privacy and to keep those other messes from spilling in!
