We have been super busy around here with an exciting project! The kind of fun, beautiful dream project that has kept me up at nights dreaming about and planning for! We are teaming up with The Home Depot to create a SheShed in our yard!
You’ve heard of SheSheds right? If you do a Pinterest search, you will see a bunch of adorable inspiration. It is basically a little outdoor retreat… like a man cave but for us girls, and much cuter of course. I have noticed a bunch of different kinds of SheSheds, from little cozy living spaces, to offices, to craft rooms… all in quaintly transformed little sheds.
I am so thrilled to be creating this fun space and I have spent hours and hours thinking of all of the fun ways to transform a shed, The possibilities are really endless!
Here are the before and after pictures.
I am sure a lot of you can relate, but we didn’t exactly have a huge space in our awkwardly L-shaped yard to install a shed, but we did have this perfect little area on a gravel pad out by the back door of our garage. We had to bump out our fence a few feet to give ourselves more room, but when all was said and done, I think this boring and ugly area was transformed into a sweet little retreat (I can’t WAIT to show you how we added even more charm. It doesn’t even look like the same space now! But, thats another post for another day).
I was lucky enough to have my shed custom built and installed by TuffShed through The Home Depot. They were absolutely wonderful to work with and our local rep, Kim was so creative and adorable that we actually had a lot of fun picking out all of the shed features. I love when I meet people that just get me. I also love that they are a company that builds their product right here locally in the USA.
Our city has a lot of shed regulations, so we were a little limited on what types we could use on our property. For instance, we couldn’t do the tall barn-looking type, and we had strict height and square footage requirements. When all was said and done though, I absolutely love how it turned out!
These were my picks:
TR 700 shed, with doors on the side wall
Galvanized Steel 6″ Base
Heavy Duty 3/4″ Treated Flooring
6/12 Roof Pitch Upgrade
End Wall Eave Upgrade
6- 24″x36″ windows
Custom Dutch 2’6″ x 6′ double doors
Swiss Coffee paint color with Swiss Coffee trim
Tempered Glass 16″x 8″ Transom Window
When they arrived, they had a trailer with all of the shed parts and pieces and the pre-built walls custom-made at our local factory. They assembled everything on-site, starting with the steel foundation.
It was so fun to see all of the shed pieces brought in, one by one. I’m telling you this thing is SO well-built.
I chose to add 3 24″x36″ windows on each side of the shed and I think they are so charming.
I wanted the shed to be a pretty creamy white color to match the trim of our house, and the Swiss Coffee color was perfect. I think little creamy sheds are so charming,
One of my very favorite features we picked out for my SheShed was this double dutch door with the X trim. I love, love, LOVE it! The fun little transom windows above the door add so much light and charm too. They also did all of their touch-ups and added their second coat of paint on site.
And, after just a few short hours, the shed was complete!
I can’t WAIT to share pictures of the inside (and the outside) with you! We have been hard at work making it a cozy little outdoor retreat and I think you will love it! Think… beadboard walls, planked ceiling, lots of white with accents of blue and gray and wood tones, with lots of vintage charm of course. I want it to be calm and serene.
I have some other little design surprises and I can’t wait to share the final reveal with you in the next couple of weeks! This has been such a fun process. What type of SheShed would you love to build?
