The country is preparing for another round of school holidays that are unlike any in the years before. There’s no popping across the ditch or over to the Islands. Restrictions on traveling within our own country come and go too, and if we’re being honest, we’re all a bit sick of being stuck at home. But you can still have a special school break with a school holiday staycation!
We frequently talk about what a great escape a SheShed is for adults. For crafts, hobbies, work spaces and a sneaky glass of Merlot. But a SheShed is a perfect escape for kids too.
A Backyard Sleepout
We were inspired by this beautiful shed makeover by the Freling-Brown family in the USA and knew the same could be achieved in one of our SheSheds
The wall height of our SheShed is 2150mm, with a further 650mm to the apex of the roof (2800mm), a set of bunks like this set from Harvey Norman, or these from Fantastic Furniture are both below 1700mm which will give them (and your kids) heaps of space! Extra space, and additional bunk beds will make sleepovers that much more fun, and easier!
If you want something less permanent than a set of bunks, use air mattresses instead.
Some string lighting, sheets draped from the roof and a brazier outside for roasting marshmellows creates the ultimate glamping experience. The best thing is once the school holidays are over, you can convert the SheShed back into a home office, business or whatever your imagination thinks of next!
A Backyard Cinema
How many teenagers can say they have their own backyard cinema! Our 3m x 3m SheShed would fit the bill, however one of our 3m x 4m sheds, the Cabana or the Ranch would be the perfect size for a backyard cinema!
Style with some thick dark red curtains and your favourite movie posters, add a couple of big recliners, or smaller cinema style seating, and of course a lolly buffet & popcorn for a cozy backyard cinema! Hook up a playstation or Xbox and you’ll have the best gaming room on the block!
Extra Hangout Space
A SheShed is perfect if what you really need is just extra space. If the kids are home from school, and you’re still working from home, space can very quickly become limited. This is a great way to extend your living spaces.
Add a tv, book shelves, or just couches and you’ve given your family extra living space.
It could be a great family project!
