She Sheds are the latest gender specific room….the new man cave….a space for busy women to unwind.

the she shed

Our discussion questions:

1.) Not everyone has outdoor space for a shed.  What locations make for good retreat areas?

2.) What are good features to be included in a she shed? Share pictures!

3.) Are your clients asking for these specific rooms for themselves? Are you adding this new possibility to your portfolio?

4.) Indulge your she shed fantasy – share fun ideas you’d love!

5.) Besides gender, how does a she shed differ from a man cave?

  • Brush glaze color in Fawn, a very light tan color
  • Available on Creme, Divinity, Glacier, Pebble, Sandstone, and Vanilla paints (on Maple)
  • Not available with any other glaze or finish technique
