Using Self-Storage to Create a SheShed


Dreaming of having your own space to work on personal projects and follow your passions? Then stop arguing with your husband over a dark, muggy basement and build yourself something better than a man cave: a SheShed. 


A SheShed is a relaxing space where you can find time to yourself and finally have a safe place to work on projects uninterrupted. Any type of small shed or enclosed structure can easily be converted into a SheShed, and with self storage, this process is a breeze! 


In fact, you can create your SheShed in just three easy steps:


Step 1: Clear Out the Old Shed


The first step in any construction project is to assess your building site and see what exactly you have to work with. If you already have a shed on your property, you’ll want to thoroughly clean it out and remove everything inside. 


This is where self storage comes in handy. Just move everything into a storage unit at a nearby storage facility where you can easily access it. That way, you can take your time sorting through everything and also completely empty your shed so you can properly evaluate the space and make plans for reorganizing all of your belongings. You may even consider selling or donating items that you don’t regularly use. 


Once you’ve removed everything and thoroughly cleaned your future SheShed, then you’re ready for the fun part: renovations!


Step 2: Make Renovations and Decorate


By far the most fun part of building your SheShed is renovating and decorating! There are tons of design and organization tips for SheSheds out there. You may consider adding additional windows or skylights to increase the natural lining or paint the outside several bright, happy colors. 


Whatever changes you decide to make, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to finish everything in just one day. That means you’ll need somewhere safe and out of the way to store your paint, tools, and cute vintage decorations. What better place to store all of your supplies than your self storage unit just down the street? 


Give yourself some peace of mind and put all of your SheShed renovation supplies in self storage where you can rest easy knowing your kids won’t get into the paint and the dog won’t chew anything up beyond repair. With self storage, your belongings will be safe, secure, and protected until you need them. 


Step 3: Clean Up


The final part of creating your SheShed is often the most difficult: clean up. 


Now that your regular tool shed has been completely transformed into a charming SheShed, it’s time to finish sorting out everything that used to be inside and find it a new home. And we can’t forget about all of your leftover renovation materials and the extra decor you purchased but didn’t end up using.


You may be able to find most things a home in the garage or cram it into an extra closet somewhere in the house, but finding more space in already tight quarters is challenging. Instead, consider getting yourself an endless amount of extra storage space by continuing to use self storage after your SheShed is complete. 


One of the best things about self storage is you can keep it for as long as you want. Need a new spot for all of your tools? Make your storage unit your new tool shed. Want to make more room at home by storing seasonal decorations? Use your storage unit to stay organized and easily swap out the decorations each season.
