Archadeck of Central South Carolina is Columbia’s only outdoor living space design and build firm that specializes in truly custom structures. With this in mind, we are also the best company to contact if you have a unique, upscale addition in mind. Where many builders only cater to plain-Jane, one-dimensional designs, we can design exactly what you have in mind to enhance your home and property and allow you to lead the outdoor lifestyle you crave!
One such structure trending on social media and on the newsstands is the “She Shed.” A “she shed” is the woman’s answer to the “man cave.” This newest addition to the gender-specific outdoor sanctuary is a backyard haven for busy women seeking a quiet reprieve from the world. Whether it is for reading in solace, gardening, indulging in a hobby or just a place to take an afternoon nap, the popularity of the she shed continues to grow.
Popular Country Living Magazine even declared last year the year of the she shed and elaborated on the structure’s popularity in a post titled “Move over ‘Man Caves,’ It’s All About ‘She Sheds’ Now.” The article describes their appeal: “ladies who are jealous of their partner’s ‘man cave,’ there is finally a solution for you: ‘She Sheds.’ Man caves were born out of the assumption that wives control the home — and a fella needs his own space (read: a converted garage, basement or attic full of ‘his things’). So what’s the idea behind a She Shed? Different styles we’ve seen include an English country-inspired sitting area, a crafting command center, and a retro diner.”
Many times, the impetus of creating a she shed in your own backyard involves updating an existing potting shed or neglected outbuilding located on your property into one of these glamorous backyard destinations. However, it doesn’t always have to be that way, as is evident through our she shed project in Columbia, SC. Archadeck of Central SC designed and constructed a custom she shed from scratch, and it was covered in an article chronicling the project titled “This garden shed in Columbia, SC, gives new meaning to having a place for everything and everything in its place.” Details of the shed include a concrete floor with a Hardie Plank Siding exterior and a standing seam roof. A cupola graces the roof to top off the exterior.
Archadeck of Central SC was able to repurpose some existing windows the homeowners had left over from their home, and we even added a charming pergola detail atop the side window of the shed. The open rafter interior boasts an elegant chandelier, an air conditioner cools the space and multiple shelves serve many purposes. It is a workshop for painting, a protected storage space, a studio and a playhouse all rolled into one!
Of course, the Columbia homeowners we created this unique space for are elated. To add even more charm to the property, in addition to the she shed we also installed a custom romantic-inspired gate reminiscent of those seen in English gardens of a by-gone era. This entire project is a great example of the individuality we pour into our custom designs. If you imagine it, we can build it!
