Escape From the Madness With a She Shed

You have a busy life: work, kids, kids’ school, kids’ activities, social events and occasionally, a social life. So when do you have a minute to yourself? Wouldn’t it be great to have a little retreat close enough to home so that you can easily transition, but detached so that you feel like you had a little getaway? You need a “she shed”. Now, what exactly is a “she shed”? It’s your own private retreat in your backyard where you can read, garden, take a nap or chat on the phone to your sister. The keyword is “yours”. You have that old backyard shed but how do you get started making it someplace you’d want to spend time?
