Tuff Shed is back in the bright lights! We took a trip with a couple of sheds to the FOX Plaza in New York City to see what DIY-er Skip Bedell could do to transform the spaces. The result is two awesome backyard upgrades filled with great DIY tricks.
The sheds are 8×12 TR-700s, each featuring its own unique options and upgrades. Skip’s challenge was to create dueling backyard spaces; one as a She Shed retreat and the other as a Man Cave workshop. Skip started the build-off with tours of both areas and the outline for his shed design plans.
The Man Cave features double doors, a heavy-duty ramp, and plenty of storage space for tools inside with a pegboard and a wraparound workbench. To bring in extra natural light, we also added a few windows and skylights. Skip took the space to the next level with some great storage solutions on the doors, a flatscreen TV, a mini fridge, and custom wall panels from Barron Design.
Our She Shed shell is full of curb appeal, with plenty of transom windows, shutters, and a window box. To add extra style to the interior of the TR-700, Skip brought in another custom wall design from Barron Designs and some cozy furniture.
Both the finished sheds feature great design ideas and inspiration. You can check out the final shed reveal here:
