There has been a few articles popping up in my news feed these days about the She Shed. This is the woman’s version of the Man Cave. No matter what you call them; She Sheds, Man Caves, ADU (Additional Dwelling Unit or Accessory Dwelling Unit) , Mother-In-Law Unit, or possibly extra rental income, the bottom line is, you have extra space! Having extra space is a lovely thing, and for a lot people, it is a nice opportunity to spread out from your existing house. This article is one of the spots where the She Sheds came from, these cozy, updated sheds provide women a spot for crafts, creating art, practicing yoga, extra work space, hanging out with friends or gardening. The options are limitless, if you have the extra space and time, resources and imagination, you can create a cool get-away steps away from your home. For men, the man cave has become a sanctuary after a long day at work and a place to escape with pals. This article features how one guy made his own man cave for only $107, using tons of reusable materials and includes a super cool faux window, check it out here. ADU’s, Mother-In-Law Units and daylight basements, are all options that will work for your own extra personal space, or could possibly be converted into a simple rental unit to bring in extra income. If you are considering building an ADU in Seattle, more information can be found here. As spring is upon us, this is a great time to see how you can convert that garden shed or unused basement space. Enjoy!
