Man caves have been all the rage for years now, but sheds aren’t just for men. Women are now making the backyard their domain. She sheds can be pure backyard bliss.

She sheds are a great space for women to relax, create, entertain and enjoy! Use a shed to create a space for creativity, privacy, exercise or entertainment.

Are you ready for this? Here’s some inspiration.

This may sound crazy, but I often dream of having more space to put potted plants without worrying they will be knocked over by the kids. I love these she sheds being used for their (partly) original purposes. Everything comes full circle folks.

Good Morning LaTony,

Unfortunately, I do not know the price on the doors on that shed. I would visit that blog at and ask the blog author for more information. Sorry I could not be more of a help. Have a great day!

What I like a bout a shed is that I can recreate it into something beautiful. I build a shed to become a play area of my kids. Thanks to for providing me with great plans.
