Forget The Man Cave: 'She Shed' Is Latest Home Improvement Trend

CLEVELAND, Ohio – After months of planning, the 2016 NARI Home Improvement Show is finally here.

The big event is held at the IX Center every year, and as you can imagine, there's a lot of homeowners to check out.

There's all the classics like floors, siding and of course windows, but there's also the more unique, like "she sheds." They're kind of like the female version of a "man cave."

"The whole idea behind these is to take a regular garden shed, any old garden shed really, and turn it into an outdoor oasis," explained Chris Kamis, Owner of Absolute Roofing and Construction.

He and his brother built a "she shed" for the show. It's not for sale though. He said they just wanted to show people how easy they are to make.

"This particular one is called the 'happy hour,' where you can come out here and grab some wine, grab some cheese, it's got a full wine cooler in it. We have some books, a nice fire place, it's just a beautiful place to sit and relax," he said.

If you can't afford to build one of these, then you may want to sign up for a special raffle the show is offering. Someone will win their very own "she shed." It will not come furnished.

Tickets cost 10 dollars and all of the proceeds will benefit the Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio.

Janet and Skip Baran of Medina had a good laugh about the "she shed." Janet said she'd love to have her own.

"I don't even have a man cave, but she's going to have a studio on the main floor plus a 'she shed'?" joked Skip.
