See What You Can Build with LP® on FYI's He Shed She Shed

When you build a shed with LP® products, you can unleash your creativity and make it so much more than a shed. That’s the idea behind an exciting new TV series, He Shed She Shed, which premiered Saturday, April 2, 2016, on the FYI Television Network. The first season of this DIY design series consists of six one-hour episodes. He Shed She Shed celebrates the trend of turning backyard sheds into functional and creative outdoor living spaces. From pub-sheds used as man caves and “shed-quarters” serving as alternative work spaces, to the latest trend of she-sheds designed as female-based sanctuaries, sheds are the latest small space craze. What used to be just a humble garden outbuilding is now fast becoming a way for owners to express creativity and to fill a practical space missing from their traditional home.

America, Get Your Shed Together!

Each episode of He Shed She Shed follows two homeowners, friends or neighbors in the ultimate male vs. female backyard shed showdown – as they build and design a unique he-shed and she-shed. The series also shows off existing sheds across the country and meets with the owners to learn about their inspiration in creating the unique outdoor space. In the April 2nd series premiere, two party-loving homeowners turned their outdoor sheds into backyard bars. In California, a pirate-obsessed guy turned his shed into a pirate pub, complete with a mast, sails and secret bar. Meanwhile in Austin, Texas, a mega-party hostess created a tiki bar she-shed that’s built for entertaining her huge group of friends.
