She Shed luxury

We kept watching all of these television shows about tiny homes and decided that one of them would make a great escape place for our mom.

With Mother’s Day approaching we decided to surprise her with her own little hideaway in the backyard.

The biggest challenge would be pulling it off without her finding out. Most of the unit could be built off site and delivered, but, things like plumbing, electric, and the HVAC unit needed to be installed once it was in place. Now all of these were minimal with the exception of the HVAC unit. Because the unit would need it’s own breaker to handle the electric load we knew we needed a professional electrician as well as an HVAC technician on site to finish the install. Thankfully, our HVAC dealer worked with a local contractor and they could supply both. We knew that the person doing the electric could be trusted as much as our HVAC technician and that put our fears at ease. It is always hard to trust strangers to come into your home and do work for you but we had used the same HVAc dealer for year. When the day arrived to deliver the “She Shed” we had to enlist Dad’s help to get mom out of the house for several hours. He planned a day out on the boat to ensure that mom would not decide to call it a day and head home early. Everything went like clockwork and when they did come home, mom was so surprised that she cried. She is looking forward to decorating her space and spending time in her own little oasis.
