The She Shed trend is here to stay! It has a lot of people scratching their heads, so we’ll break it down for you. In days past, ladies gave up the dirty old shed at the back of the backyard to their husbands, preferring to take over a brightly lit attic or side room. Now women are discovering that when they’re out of the building, they get less requests that interrupt their “me” time. Sounds pretty smart!

How do you get a she shed? First step is to clean out the old backyard shed/kick your husband out of it. This step is actually a lot more work than people realize, and leaves you with the issue of where to put everything. Look no further than Storage Solutions! We have 8x8 and 8x10 units that are perfect for the shed stuff. Just a thought and suggestion to combat the inevitable complaint that will come up.

Once the shed is cleaned out, or a new one has been built, it’s time to paint the outside and inside of the she shed. Most prefer white, yellow, or something very bright. A lot of sheds have minimal windows, so keep that in mind. Some ladies will add insulation and a wall of plywood as well. The benefit of this is that it elongates your she shed season.

The final step is to give your she shed purpose. Some choose art, gardening, scrapbooking, writing, and the more confident go with a “hang out place”. No one is going to hold you to the purpose of your she shed, but you might want to add in a table, shelving, hooks and the like, depending on what you’re doing.

The good news is that a she shed should be relatively inexpensive. Cleaning out, new paint and buying some décor at an antique market are part of the fun of the experience. Many dedicate their she shed to repurposing items, like an old wooden ladder, spending time painting the item and turning it into a plant stand.

To the men out there, here’s your incentive to clean out the shed and get a storage unit with us: 1. Your wife would be very happy, and 2. Chances are your wife won’t visit your storage unit, so you can buy some new toys. “Me” time is great, isn’t it?
