People are ditching she-sheds to build wine shacks in their backyards instead

May 4th, 2021

Recently trending she-sheds are the feminine answer to the man cave, a place for people everywhere to relax and get away from the daily grind of working a job and taking care of a household. Now, they are finding a new use, as wine shacks.

With the coming of the pandemic, many bars and restaurants were closed.

To continue to get their drink on, wine and alcohol lovers have decided to turn their sheds into a hangout envied by the neighbors.

And while it does take some know-how when it comes to converting a shed, YouTube has plenty of videos telling you how to build your own shed. Just make sure to include space for your four-legged friends.

Creating your own space

With this new craze, people have really raised the bar with their designs, literally. In addition to converting or building their own wine/bar shed, people have also incorporated other elements in their back yard, such as the patio, pool, or other areas.

A perfect project for the DIYer in your family

Providing a fun challenge, many DIYers have been up to the task. All it takes is a little paint, maybe some reconstruction in some cases, and a lot of determination to turn your shed into the hangout of your dreams, complete with wine, or any other alcoholic beverage that you choose.

Just make sure that you have a connection to power your fridge or wine cooler.

Plus, power to the shed will also allow you to hook up lights for those nighttime parties with family and friends.

Other amenities include plumbing, a firepit, or whatever else you can dream up. All of it designed to give you a great place to relax and have a drink or two.

You can even add an entire outdoor eating area.

Best of all, it doesn’t have to be a small shed and can use a bigger structure to give you plenty of room to spread out and enjoy yourself.

Not relegated to just wine

And don’t forget the theme, as that can make or break a party space. Popular themes include Tiki bars, rustic, or a more modern look. As long as you have alcohol, such as wine, beer, or rum, among others, you can turn your backyard space into a place to relax and enjoy your off time.
