A She Shed for Knitting

 

Knitting has been a passion of Nancy’s since she was young girl, knitting with her Grandmother. Until recently, she didn’t have a single, organized space dedicated to her hobby. But that’s changed, now that Nancy has her own she shed.

Jim Brown and Nancy Brown-Webber live in a semi-rural area. Their spacious backyard is a shaded oasis with a waterfall and a deck for outdoor relaxation.

From inside the house, however, you can’t really see into the backyard to enjoy the scenery. Nancy wanted to put her she shed into her backyard so that she could enjoy the view through the large windows.

The Webbers visited our retail store multiple times, making sure they chose the model that would fit their needs the best.

“We only had a rough idea of what we wanted, and slowly narrowed it down,” says Jim.

They loved working with their sales consultant, who was both helpful and not pushy.

They settled on a 10×16 ft Ulrich Retreat, a popular model for backyard she sheds and hobby shops. The couple decided on a small porch and five 3×4 ft windows.

Jim, an avid woodworker, lined the interior walls with knotty pine and the ceiling with knotty alder. Nancy stained the pine to give it a “barnwood” look and oiled the alder, which makes it glow.

Nancy is very pleased with the end result and very happy with her Ulrich cabin shell. She was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable our prices were.

“The quality for the price we paid, I was actually quite surprised,” she says.

Jim was also impressed. “You can’t beat the quality,” he says.

Nancy is looking forward to many peaceful hours of knitting and relaxation in her very own she shed.
