Forget the ‘Man-cave’: Why your home needs a ‘She shed’

We’ve all heard of the man-cave, but now it’s official – the she shed trend is here to stay. Everyone needs their own safe haven, slice of tranquillity and a space to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Whilst the advent of the man-cave has focussed on men’s needs for hobbies and quiet time, it’s time to open the invitation and talk about your next fabulous she shed.

Here at Bridge Timber, we’re passionate about providing stunning, bespoke garden buildings and pods, so let’s take a look at a few benefits and what you could do with your very own she shed.

Space to take up a Hobby

How many of you have got a long list of hobbies, books or challenges that you’ve not got around to starting yet – sounds familiar? Sometimes it feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day and your hobby list gets neglected. Well, a garden pod is the perfect place to position your pottery, organise your book snug or start writing that blockbuster film script.

We’ll help you to create a calm, comforting space where you can start ticking off that bucket list.

The perfect Home Office

More and more of us are working from home and finding a quiet spot to reply to your mountain of emails and write your presentations is easier said than done. With a she shed, garden room you can transform your space into a sleek, clean home office space – away from noisy distractions and the allure of the biscuit tin.

Quiet Time is healthy

We know how busy you are and sometimes it’s difficult to catch a break. But regular pauses, time spent on your own and a couple of hours away from your hectic schedule every now and then can work wonders.

The NHS’s guide to mental wellbeing talks about the importance of learning and being mindful. Mindfulness is about being present and aware of your thoughts and feelings. We think a she shed is the perfect place to take stock of where you’re at, relax and maintain a positive outlook in a busy world.

A new Hang-out for Friends and Family

A cup of tea (or a G&T) on the sofa or at the kitchen table is all very good, but when you’re inviting friends or family around for a chinwag, having somewhere different to go can be a lovely bonus. Turning your garden room into a space for socialising is a great idea. Crank up the tunes with our sound proofing capabilities and have a good catch-up.

Your Garden Grotto

If you’re green thumbed and love nothing more than working in your garden, a garden pod can act as a hub for all your equipment, seeds and plants. Instead of a tired, traditional shed area – we’ll help design a light, spacious space that you’ll enjoy being in.

Our garden rooms are responsibly sourced too, so if you’re into nature, conservation and sustainability, we’re a safe pair of hands.
