If you've never heard of a she shed, you're not alone. But this relatively new home trend is starting to pop up all over your favorite design blogs and home decor magazines. She sheds are repurposed backyard sheds, which can be turned into a haven for almost any use. Whether you're a gardener, an artist, or just looking for a secluded backyard getaway, they're the perfect option for space-starved women who need a space to call their own.
Author Erika Kotite's new book, She Sheds: A Room of Your Own delves into this fast-growing trend and takes a look at some of the most beautiful she sheds from around the country and beyond. We chatted with her to find out just what makes she sheds so special and why you should think about making one of your very own.
