In part one¬†of this two-part blog series, we looked into some of the basics to consider if you’re building a she-shed on your property. The she-shed, which is a woman’s alternative to the man-cave and is becoming more and more popular among women today, can be a great addition to your property — provided you go about it in the right ways.

At A-Shed USA, we’re happy to offer a wide range of sheds, garages and other structures to clients throughout Salt Lake City, including those looking to build a she-shed. What are some other things to be thinking about as you build and install a she-shed on any part of your property? Here are a few.

Maintain Surrounding Vegetation

As you’re erecting and building your she-shed, you’ll also want to think about the vegetation surrounding the structure. If you have a lot of trees and bushes around your property, you might want to clear some of them out to make room for your new shed — or, at least trim them back so they’re not crowding the shed.

This will help ensure that your shed has plenty of ventilation to avoid moisture buildup, which can lead to mold and mildew. It will also give you a bit more space to move around as you’re working on projects inside the shed.

Consider Insulation

Depending on what you plan to use your she-shed for, you might want to consider adding insulation. This will help keep the temperature inside the shed more consistent, whether it’s during the hot summer months or the cold winter months.

It will also make the space more comfortable to be in for longer periods of time, which can be important if you plan to use your she-shed as a studio or workspace. Insulation is relatively easy to install, so it’s definitely worth considering.

Wiring Themes

Down related lines, you might also want to think about the wiring in your she-shed. If you plan to use it as a workspace, you’ll likely need outlets for power tools, lamps and other devices. You might even want to install WiFi so you can work on projects remotely.

In any case, it’s important to have a professional handle the wiring in your she-shed so it’s done correctly and up to code. This will help avoid any potential problems or hazards down the road.

Utilize Natural Light

Finally, one of the best things you can do for your she-shed is to utilize natural light as much as possible. This means placing windows in strategic locations so sunlight can stream in during the daytime hours.

Not only will this help make the space more pleasant to be in, but it will also cut down on your need for artificial lighting, which can save you money on your energy bills.

These are just a few of the things to keep in mind as you’re planning and building a she-shed on your property.
