Building Your She Shed in Maryland

Need a she shed? North Arundel Contracting can help!

The she shed: the indomitable domain of the woman. While man caves may have been the trend of the 90s, woman caves are the rage of the 2010s and onward. In this day and age, everyone can appreciate having a small space of their own. However, one might need a small introduction to what it is and how to create one. If you live in Maryland, you can draw inspiration here to discover your ideal design.

What Is a She Shed?

She shed, lady loft, dame dome, hen pen, and femme den are just a few of the names describing the woman cave. As the first name suggests, this structure is generally one detached from the house and usually sits in the backyard. Each one is unique to the woman who built it, and in some ways is similar to a tiny house. It is fully customizable and can be built from scratch or based on a model. It is a detached structure made for the lady of the house for a specific purpose.

Why Have a She Shed?

The purpose of a she shed is often so the lady can pursue a passion or relax. For example, a woman might use the space to pot plants, paint, or craft. In this way, it is a woman’s hobby room. However, it is also used for relaxing amid the comforts of personalized decor, and can be a sanctuary for reading, writing, and drinking tea (or champagne!) Or, one could just look out the window and daydream. The she shed is a place for the lady to relax and enjoy the activities she loves most. 

How to Create One

There are several ways a woman can create her she shed. One option is to buy a premade shed online or from a store like Sears or Home Depot. Some may already be fitted to become a fabulous she shed. Another option is to renovate an existing structure, like an unfinished garage or old backyard shed. Some people build their sheds from scratch. 

Once you have the base structure, you will need to finish its interior with sufficient insulation and drywall. You will also need to consider lighting and HVAC. One could use battery or solar-operated lighting and equipment or connect to the main power via extension cord, or go all-out and install electrical work. Your lady lounge would ideally be habitable year-round. The last step is furnishing and decoration, which is up to the owner’s imagination.
