You'd just have to remember to unplug when you're done using your she shed. But that way, you could have a lamp or 2, or maybe a fan.
It'd have to go across a field and be moved when we mow. I really liked those YETI portable power sources, which would be good to have in the event of an emergency, too. We have a gas generator, too, but that thing is huge and noisy.

Daybed is actually what I'd planned on using for a couch. Couch for reading, napping, listening to music. I also LOVE LOVE the idea of hanging herbs to dry from the ceiling beams. Fragrance! And I do burn candles and incense, so that's a given

I have created a she-shed in a small 1 bedroom apartment in the middle of an urban area.

I have a 1-bedroom apartment in a subsidized senior building, and I have a tiny balcony.

I live alone, so what I did, is I set up my living room with a daybed that is also my sleeping bed, and my bedroom is my she-shed. It has a table in the middle, a shelving unit on one wall, a large dresser under the window, and a workbench on another wall, with the large closet on the other wall.

I have grow lights over a shelf on the shelving unit, and also over the dresser which is under the window.

In that space, I have a large tub of basil under the grow lights, which gives me a constant supply of fresh basil, I have my work bench for art projects. I have a table in the center that can also be rolled into the living space if I need it - always put everything on casters! Tons of storage space, my shelves hold my gardening stuff. Right now, my tomatoes are just winding up on the balcony.

A she-shed is mandatory for my lifestyle. Whether I lived alone or not. I need gardening and artwork space. I just finished a large art project, which was me painting and then stenciling two large room dividers to use between my kitchen and living areas. Huge project. But, in my she-shed bedroom/craft room, I have my paints and stencils and tarps, etc.

I'd much rather have a craft room than a bedroom. My space is my own, so I don't have to compromise. But, if I was you, I'd tell my SO you need your she-shed just like he needs his tools, garage, whatever. Men have no problem stating their needs regarding these types of things, with the absolute expectancy that it is non-negotiable. So, that's the way you should approach it, too. Babe, if you want me to be happy, this is what I need. And any smart man knows - if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy :-)

Until I saw the commercial I had never heard the term. It's even worse than "man cave."

Likewise, and agreed. But I think they are just contemporary faddish buzz words that will eventually lose fad favour in time and people will go back to referring to them by the historically usual term of 'inner sanctum'.

I agree. It keeps reminding me of the "she sells seashells" rhyme, for one thing, LOL

I wonder if She-Ra, Princess of Power, had a She Shed. Inquiring minds want to know! ;-)

(if so, then He-Man must have had a He-Mancave....)

I had to give them up I was having a hard time handling the heavy boxes by myself and hubs was not a bee guy. I also seemed to be developing a strong reaction to stings, rather than becoming immune to them. I also didn't really want to keep creating new hives, to add to my work - which you almost have to do. I daydream that I will try again when I am retired.

And State Farm thanks you very much, for that is what advertising is supposed to do. I had heard she shed but it was not something that was in the local vernacular, at least in my area. Now I will bet there are a whole lot more people who have heard of she sheds.
