Steel Building Ideas: The Ultimate She-Shed or Man Cave

These days, personal space and free time can be hard to come by. Whether you have a family, a busy career, or some combination of the two, it’s likely that your days (and your home) are filled to the brim. Wouldn’t it be nice to have your own little space that you can retreat to for some peace at the end of a long day?

Enter the she-shed or man cave. These miniature retreats serve the same purpose, regardless of gender; they provide an oasis where hard-working people can have a space of their own that’s separated from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house.

If you’ve been thinking about treating yourself to a she-shed or man cave, our team at Bunger Steel is here to help make it happen with a quality Arizona steel building.

Why a Steel Building?

First, let’s dispel the myth that she-sheds have to be tiny and quaint little getaways in the corner of the yard. A larger steel building provides more opportunities for customization, more space, and greater overall durability than any pre-fab shed you’d pick up at your local hardware store.

Just the same, there’s no reason that a man cave needs to be relegated to the home’s basement. More and more often, we’re seeing people use steel buildings as dedicated man caves to truly separate themselves from the noise and chaos of the home.

She-Shed Ideas

There are so many ways in which a steel building can be used to create the perfect she-shed retreat. In our experience, many women want she-sheds that they can use to partake in a hobby. For example, we’ve seen she-sheds that are dedicated yoga and/or meditation spaces. For crafters, a she shed can also be a great place to store craft supplies and work in total peace.

In other instances, we’ve seen she-sheds used as meeting spaces for groups (such as book clubs) and even dedicated spaces for social media influencers who want to avoid distractions from the home. For busy mothers, a she-shed can also deliver a much-needed kid-free zone for a few minutes per day.

When designing a she-shed, it’s all about your own personal style. You can find decor options to suit just about any budget. Many find that choosing the right paint scheme and adding some landscaping to the outside of the shed is the best way to make it feel like home.

Man Cave Ideas

Having a dedicated steel building to use as a man cave offers a lot more privacy and peace than a basement man cave. We’ve seen men use these sheds not just to work on “toys” (like cars and motorcycles), but as a space to watch sports, hang out with friends, and even shoot billiards. For those who enjoy grilling, having an outdoor man cave is a practical way to partake in this hobby while enjoying their space.
