This week the internet went crazy over the DIY backyard guest house. So crazy in fact that the kit keeps selling out. The Allwood Solvalla is quite the beauty. People everywhere saw the possibilities of adding onto their homes without the price of adding on. What did I see? I saw a DIY backyard she shed because that is what I need in my life.

Easy to make DIY backyard she shed kit.

DIY Backyard She Shed That Comes In A Kit

When it comes to an additional structure in my backyard, I’m not looking into building it for the typical reason. Like when I say she shed… I’m in no way wanting to use it as the female version of a man cave. What I’m in need of is more of an office type of set up. Possibly a pull out sofa in said office to use for overnight guests, but mainly an area to run my businesses. Home office space is something that I absolutely need and putting it out back would be much easier than adding onto our house.

No Office Space

We have a fairly large home for our family size, but that does not include a set office space. So I unfortunately find myself working in various rooms throughout the house. Which means I have stacks of papers everywhere. I need a space to call my own where I can manage both this blog and the ice cream machine rental business in one place.

Wouldn’t this place make the perfect home office? It’s being marketed as a backyard guest house, cabin kit, garden house, or man cave (if you want something that isn’t in the basement dungeon), but all that I see is a she shed home office.

Other DIY Backyard She Shed Ideas

As I mentioned before, Allwood Solvalla cabin kit keeps going in and out of being in stock. So if it just happens to be sold out at this very moment… Not to fear! There are tons of other DIY cabin kit or garden house options to choose from. All from Allwood and all at amazing prices. Have a look at just a few of my favorites:


Allwood Mayflower Garden House Kit

Worried about making a permanent decision in your backyard? I love that this one can be moved from place to place in the yard. Plus, since it’s on wheels it’s exempt from building permits! More details and available HERE.

This is some helpful stuff. It took me some time to locate this web site but it was worth the time. I noticed this page was hidden in yahoo and not the first spot. This blog has a lot of pleasant material and it doesnt deserve to be burried in the searches like that. By the way Im going to add this web publication to my favorites.

I was blessed to be able to have a custom build she shed by our local Omish craftsman last year. It is a dream come true. I have been spending this spring organizing and decorating it to be my place of respite. I use it for all of my gardening treasures. Inside I have precious items such as a few birdhouses my dad made me I am an avid (beginner) backyard birder and love to collect items with my favorite birds on them. I am in the process of landscaping the outside with all my favorite flowers. I have build a memory garden on one side of it where I plant all the plants that my loved once enjoyed. I find your shed and blogs so inspiring and have gotten a lot of great ideas from you, Mary. I am so impressed by your talents and all the beautiful items that adorn your shed. Enjoy the beautiful seasons decorating your she shed and congratulations to have your photos in such a wonderful book. Blessings, happy gardening
