A customer who purchased a 16’ yurt from us a couple of years ago just picked up his second one of the same size a couple of weeks ago. When I asked him, “why two yurts?” he replied, “The first yurt was for me … this one is my wife’s ‘She Yurt!’ ”
The “She Shed” is alliterative way of referring to a woman’s backyard sanctuary. The latest trend is transforming the backyard garden shed or playhouse into a quiet retreat for her! First the guys got their “Man Caves,” now it’s the ladies’ turn.
Your yurt can be set up in just a day or two and stay up year round as an escape from the noise, the hustle and bustle of everyday life in the main house. A place where you don’t have to pick up your half-finished project that has somehow taken over the kitchen table. You are allowed to keep it exactly as it is and close the door. It will be there when you have an opportunity to resume. Your favorite crafts can flourish, whether it’s beading, quilting, knitting, pottery, blogging, or painting. Or maybe you prefer a quiet space to get away and take time for yourself to read, do yoga, or meditate.
Pinterest is chock full of cute photos of colorful sheds that have been transformed into a darling backyard oasis. Half of the fun of the She Shed concept is decorating your new all-your-own space! Whimsical, colorful and playful comes to mind after looking at the photos online. It’s like a blank canvas that needs no one’s approval. From the 12’ Sparrow on up to our 33’ Eagle and all seven sizes in between, you can’t go wrong with a Rainier yurt.
Need a spare bedroom? Put in a murphy bed for when guests come.
With ample sunlight coming through the center skylight, you don’t need to run electricity to your She Yurt or offer a battery powered lantern to overnight guests who have the pleasure of staying in your little slice of heaven.
Send pictures of your She Yurt to: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add them to this post.
Living the dream!
