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.
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:
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.
Not quite as modern as the Solvalla, but comfortably rustic for a wooded area. Plus, it’s a major savings at over $2200 less than the modern one. More details and available HERE.
Spacious, inviting and perfect as a garden house or pool house. More details and available HERE.
Definitely not your typical man cave or she shed! There are so many possibilities for having a home office in the backyard.
