15 She-sheds on Instagram to put all man caves to shame

Jul 30, 2015 at 5:40 p.m. ET

The she-shed is the prettier, more stylish alternative to the man cave. No disrespect to our cave-dwellers but these strictly female garden retreats are the business.

According to the Daily Mail, more women than ever are buying sheds. Apparently we're flocking to our local DIY superstores in droves and snapping up summer houses, log cabins and a whole range of freestanding garden retreats.

I never thought I'd be lusting after a shed but I am. Because my shed wouldn't be for storing garden chairs and the kids' bikes and the lawnmower (if I had a lawnmower) but for working, or reading, or relaxing, or simply being alone. A place to call my own that's not strewn with plastic superhero figures and dotted with piles of laundry.

What would your she-shed look like?
