She Sheds in Oregon | DIY, Kit, or Pre-Built? | 2022

Lean to style she shed

Everyone is now looking for their own personal sanctuary. A place to get away from the stress of life, and away from the kids and kitchen. A place to simply sit, write, or enjoy a cup of tea. 

And with today’s trend of home offices and remote work, everyone needs a private place to get away and crank out that work. Say hello to the She Shed. The solution that gives you a “yes” to what you need! 

“A she shed is the female equivalent of a man cave—a refuge where she can escape from her spouse, whiny kids, work, and other responsibilities and just chill on her own.”

~ Deputy Editor of, Judy Dutton

So let’s dig in, and find out more about this awesome trend in home living. We’ll start by answering a couple of questions today.

Continue reading to discover the answers to these questions! 

What Is a She Shed?

As the female version of the man cave, a She shed is designed as a sanctuary to relax in and get away from the busyness of life, without leaving the comfort of your backyard. A She shed is simply a regular shed with lots of added style and personality, and can really be anything you want it to be. From a simple place to get away and enjoy some alone time with your cup of tea and favorite book to the place where you can write or work, away from the everyday grind of your kitchen. It can also double as a home office, or a guest room when you host visitors.

The beauty of she sheds is their versatility. After you purchase or repurpose your own she shed, you can make it your very own. Whether it is your office workspace, a place to chill alone with your book or music, an artist’s studio, or a DIY workspace. Your she shed and how you design and decorate it is 100% your call. Make it your own.

What Is a Good Size for A She Shed?

An ideal she shed size is anywhere between 8×10 to 10×16 or around 80 to 160 sq ft., this gives you plenty of space for your chair, writing desk, and sofa plus some room to move around without feeling crowded. But you can go much larger if you are looking at adding a loft or making space for a guest bed or simply want a larger workspace. Add a porch on the end of your shed to expand the space and give you a place to relax outside, out of the sun! 

Most she sheds are on the smaller end of the shed size spectrum, especially for a simple workspace or reading nook. This is good for you, because the smaller the shed, the more you’ll save on price. 

Does a She Shed increase Your Home’s value?

If you are considering building a shed shed, you may be concerned that all your time and money invested in your shed won’t actually increase the value of your home. However, a tastefully designed she shed is actually a wonderful way to catch the eye of a potential buyer.

Even if your design tastes differ from potential buyers, your creativity could spark the imagination of a buyer, and give them ideas of how they could make the shed she their own. If a she shed simply doesn’t interest them, the added space a shed brings will appeal to even the most hard to please buyers. 

She Shed Ideas

A shed really is a blank canvas on which you can apply your ideas and creativity, and make it a space you’re truly proud of. Here are just a few backyard she shed ideas to spark your imagination.

3 Ways to Get Your Own She Shed

When you are ready to get your own She shed, you have three options. 

1. DIY she shed

First, you can “do it yourself”. This will take a significant amount of construction experience, and tools, plus you’ll have to purchase all the necessary materials prior to building your shed. While this is a good option if you are into construction and are feeling up to the challenge. Building the shed yourself will give you tons of flexibility with the design features of your She shed, and the satisfaction of having “done it yourself”! The downside is that it will probably cost you more in the long run if you count the time investment and have to purchase material at retail price. 

2. She Shed Kits

Second, if you consider yourself a “handyman” but don’t feel up to building your She shed from scratch then you should definitely consider purchasing a “shed kit” from a trusted shed builder. Most shed kits come with all the material pre-cut and ready to put together. For instance, a storage shed kit from Countryside Sheds includes the following: 

You can find the full list and more information about she shed kits here. 

3. Pre-Built She Shed

Probably the most common, and easiest, way of getting your own shed to use as your “she shed sanctuary” is to have a Pre-Built shed delivered to your home. While having a pre-built shed delivered is probably going to cost you more than some other options, the benefits outweigh the price. When you get a pre-built she shed, you’ll get a high-quality, well-built shed at an affordable cost, customized exactly how you want it, and then get it dropped off at your place, and put down exactly where you want it!

There are lots of options for sheds nowadays, with huge ranges of quality and of course price. The national average price for a shed is $3,634.00.
