He Shed, She Shed, Episode 3: "Into Space!"

LP is pleased to support the FYI Television Network’s exciting new DIY design series, He Shed She Shed! This is the ultimate male vs. female backyard shed showdown, where every episode features fresh and innovative ways to use these versatile outdoor buildings. We think you’ll agree … sheds aren’t just for storage anymore! On the April 16th episode, hosts Luke Barr and Sarah Ferrell help two homeowners find their perfect backyard escape with a unique outdoor shed constructed with materials from LP® Outdoor Building Solutions®.

Kaitlin’s Stargazing Shed

Near Boston, Kaitlin and her husband just replaced the old shed in their backyard with a new shed that she hopes will become a romantic, astronomy-themed she-shed within a budget of $8,000. To give Kaitlin plenty of room to view the sky, Sarah opens up the side of the shed wall and installs two carriage doors. A mobile living room on a rolling platform allows the couple to move their relaxation outside, under the open sky. Inside the shed, a custom fiber-optic light panel on the ceiling and a custom starscape wall create a celestial atmosphere while a zero-gravity suspended bed adds a romantic touch. On the patio, an outdoor fire pit will keep the stargazers warm and cozy.

Ozzie’s Sci-Fi Office

In Texas, sci-fi fanatic Ozzie wants a sleek, futuristic spaceship he-shed that won’t interfere with his wife’s idea of home. Since building sheds is what Ozzie does for a living, he’s already framed out the shed and envisions using the space as an office and an out-of-this-world escape from the everyday. Ozzie also has a budget of $8,000, and Luke uses it to install a custom-designed automated door and seamlessly blends the floor, walls and ceiling to make the shed feel more futuristic. Custom lighting emanates from the floor, and space-age technology allows for the glass in the back window to be changed from clear to opaque with the flip of a switch.
