Are you wondering what to get Mom for Mother’s Day this year that will really knock her socks off? If she’s like most moms, she spends a lot of time doing for others, so some peace and quiet probably tops her list of most-wanted gifts. This year, give her what she wants from the comfort of her very own she-shed! What’s a she-shed? It’s the female answer to a man cave, and the best thing for moms since the washing machine was invented.
The space that’s usually cluttered with power tools and outgrown bikes can be transformed into an oasis where mom can indulge in her favorite pastimes, or just enjoy quiet time to relax. It’s a place to escape that’s close to home but far enough away she can hear herself think.
There are no set rules on building a she-shed, as long as it’s a place Mom enjoys. This Mother’s Day, turn your backyard into an outdoor retreat with a durable shed constructed of innovative products from LP® Outdoor Building Solutions®. Get she-shed ideas, then find out where to buy a shed near you!
