Sunday, August 9th the CBS Sunday Morning Show mesmerized me. It was almost like I was “hungry” for every segment. I hit rewind and recorded the whole dang show! One of the treasures was a segment about the she-shed. Apparently women all over have been building these great little she-sheds and I was completely unaware.Faith Salie did a great job of assessing the situation. If you weren’t lucky enough to view this, you can find it here.
I realized that the men in my home have at least two man-caves. We have never parked a vehicle in the garage. First it was just filled with their stuff. Eventually they took out the door and replaced it will a wall, added a sliding glass door and installed a heater. It is now a forbidden area unless I am bringing food and beverage. They also commandeered one bathroom and I have idea what they have done or how it gets cleaned as it is off limits to me. There was simply no place, not even a room that could be transformed into a she-shed.
So I grabbed my drink, a camera and headed out to the yard to look at the possibilities. It didn’t look too promising.
The first option is a small storage container. I am not sure if it simply was not put together well or if it has become dilapidated over the years.
I do know that a raccoon called it home for some time. There is no power. If I could least put it together correctly, and clean it there are some possibilities. I could take a sleeping bag, a portable heater, a lantern and write in there. It is not big enough to stand up. It is something to think about.
