She Shed Project Update

She-Shed Project Update – My Future Home Office

We are currently in the process of converting our backyard shed into my she-shed, which will not only be my place of refuge from the craziness of life, but will also be my home office for the business. I can’t wait to have a place to “go to work” but still be available at home. Today I’m sharing with you an update on our she-shed project as we finish up the demolition phase and move into the second phase which includes electrical, insulation and drywall!

In addition to a project update, I thought it would also be helpful to share with you the 5 main reasons we believe cedar raised beds are the best way to garden. While there are well over 5 benefits to gardening in raised beds, I wanted to focus in on the ones we’ve experienced when it comes to using CEDAR raised beds. We are huge advocates for using cedar lumber in the construction of raised beds – whether they’re to hold flowers, vegetables, or even just greenery – and hope this post will enlighten you as to how much the material you build your beds out of matters.
