Why are she sheds are way better than man caves? Well for one thing, they're above ground. And if you want to truly be surrounded by nature while relaxing in your backyard retreat, this glass-walled cabin is the perfect solution.
Designed by Ville Hara of Finland-based Avanto Architects and commissioned by Finnish designer Linda Bergroth, this glass-covered modular cabin can actually serve multiple purposes. Install a bed or a couch, and it serves as a home away from home (just think about waking up to that stunning view). It can also be used as a greenhouse or a gardening shed.
Because it's modular and gets assembled with only a screwdriver, the shed can be adjusted to four different sizes, making it perfect for tiny terraces or backyards, too. The enclosed storage area features adjustable shelves as well as door pegs to hang gardening tools. The temperature of the glassed-in area is controlled by automatic opening panels.
The Association of Finnish Garden Product Retailers chose the shed — made of Finnish wood and toughened safety glass — as its pick for best garden product of the year. The prefab garden shed kit is available through Kekkilä Garden in Finland and Hasselfors Garden in other Scandinavian countries.
