One hundred and twenty square feet might not sound like much, but in the right hands, it can be the most useful space ever. Barbara Teckles is a firm believer in the recent trend of She Sheds. If you haven’t heard of them before, She Sheds are women’s answer to the Man Cave. They’re a space, separate from the home, where women can relax and reflect on the world around them. Many use their She Sheds to pursue a new hobby or craft, but there’s nothing wrong with using yours to grab a quick nap.
For Barbara, her She Shed was just the catalyst she needed to start writing. “I knew it had to be big enough that it would hold a desk,” she said. After all, a desk and a little room to get up and stretch your legs are all a writer needs to make magic. Barbara is currently working on her latest children’s book from inside the She Shed, and it appears to be doing wonders for her creativity.
Does a She Shed sound like something you could use? If so, check out this list of awesome She Sheds for some inspiration. Barbara’s husband helped build hers, so you can even use this as an opportunity to bond with your significant other. Having a space that’s all yours is important no matter who you are. Even if you can’t afford to build a She Shed, we’d recommend setting aside some quiet time for yourself each and every day.
