You Won't Believe What's Inside This Tiny Cabin

This amazing video tells the story of how one woman turned an old hunting cabin into a chic Victorian hideaway in the Catskill Mountains, and has it all to herself.

When Sandra and Todd got married and moved into a big farmhouse, Sandra came to realize that her personal style was much different from that of her husband. For example, he collects tractors and tools, and she likes unique vintage decor. By the same token, he prefers a man cave, and she wants to make a place just perfect like it came out of a magazine. Over time, with no outlet for her decorating urges and minimal extra funds, Sandra was becoming depressed.

Then Sandra and Todd moved into a wooded rural home that came with a beat up trailer and old hunting cabin in 2007. Two years later, Sandra began working on turning that cabin into the cottage of her dreams as a solo project in 2009. The New York Times wrote about her project a year later: “Armed with a crowbar, hammer and electrical saw, she removed the front of the cabin and extended the floor and porch, using salvaged floorboards. She framed out the porch and found columns, a screen door and hardware…”

Sandra says she actually discovered most of the furniture and decorations she used on Craigslist or at garage sales. She was overjoyed when she finally finished the project. She says the cute little home not only serves as her studio, but as her personal refuge.

The “She Shed” trend has been going on for some time now. It boils down to women all over the country transforming ordinary garden sheds into relaxing personal retreats.
