Woman cave - design ideas
June 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have heard a lot of talk about 'man-caves' on Houzz, but I'm thinking, why should the men have all the fun? I want a cave too!

I have an old cob-built outhouse (18th century) which I'm thinking of reroofing and insulating to provide an office / bike workshop / art area outside the main part of my house. It also contains my wood store.

I want it to be functional, but also attractive - but definitely NOT girly or pink. Has anyone seen any designs they could post on this thread to get me thinking? I plan to instal a Velux window to provide natural light, and it has great original beams (which will probably need some repairs as part of the reroofing.

Please excuse the disorder and the unintentional skylights...

Good work, but this is quite a small cave we're talking about!

Haha... I know, I've seen the outside I think. So it's not like a Tardis? Shame.

I've been in it !! Lol !! It's compact but could make a lovely 'potting shed' meets Cath Kidstone style girl cave ?! Maybe with a fridge and some proseco chilling in it !! A girl needs her comforts too !! Are you restricted to keeping the original door opening ? As if you could replace it with a slightly rounded topped French doors instead of the original door, will be lovely with the doors thrown open too on a summers evening !?!?!

No room to make doorway higher unfortunately - I like the Rabbit Farm pictures though...
