Until recently, the “man cave” was the highly coveted addition to any home. But, trends are now featuring big upgrades to the sad little shed that sits out in the yard collecting dust. No longer are the days of a run down tool shed, with rusty rakes and garden hoses. These new custom luxury spaces are created to provide an escape from the house, a place of tranquility, a place to call your own. We are talking about the She Shed!
As an example of the perfect She Shed, we turn to Scituate, MA based home blogger Danielle Driscoll of Finding Silver Pennies, who describes the She Shed that she built as a “[A] special place. A place I can go to think and relax. A spot away from our sometimes hectic house filled with boys (who sometimes fight and argue, but are usually pretty good).”

These custom spaces can range in price, starting as low as $5,000. With a focus on product selection, General Contractor Ben Becker works with the customer to maintain a budget while adhering to the desired esthetic of the space. New multi-function products, such as this woodgrain tile (see photo below), which BLB Custom Building used in a recent bathroom renovation, lend great to the She Shed, allowing for more luxury details while also maintaining durability.

And just because the days of the Man Cave may be over… who says the guys can’t also take part of this trend. Check out the Custom Cedar Pool House, built by BLB Custom Building, in Newbury, MA – or as we like to think of it, the He Shed (wink, wink).
