ToonCave ? She Shed?  Tiny Home? Writing Hut?

Whatever you call it, my little backyard cabin has changed the way I do business. It’s amazing to have my own creative space to write, where I can sing loudly to bad pop songs and generally be myself safe in the knowledge that no one is watching.
I also know my she shed is an object of lust for many other writers.

So I thought I’d share a few #ShedPorn pictures (yes ShedPorn is a thing) to satisfy your lusty hut desires.

Lots of articles seem to focus on the exterior, so this time I thought I’d share some interior shots.

You can read the story of its creation here. (Incidentally this was the most popular post on my website this year.)

These amazing shots were created by my friend and SEO course student Sandra Henri (from Sandra Henri Photography) for an upcoming book – more details soon.

I think I look fairly glam, like something out of Home and Garden, but of course my C.F.O. Pamplemousse, steals the show.

    Beautiful cave Kate! Where do you get those Star Wars figurines?

    • Kate Toon

      My husband got them for me. I’ll check and let you know 🙂

      • Kate Toon

        He said he got them from one of those card and gift type shops. Hope that helps.

  11. Olga

    I am not the materialistic type of person. Usually when I
    see something nice I think to myself “ o yes, that’s nice” and walk away. But when
    I saw your cave – OMG, what a great
    idea. Yes, I would like one. All photos
    are beautiful. Please don’t judge my
    writing, I am not a copywriter and English is my second language (technically

    • Kate Toon

      Thanks Olga. I know what you mean. I’m the same, but like you I lusted so after a shed that I just decided to make it HAPPEN. Your English is perfect. Seriously I need to get everything proof read twice, and I AM a copywriter 🙂

  12. Geraldine Jones

    Enjoyed the sneak peek into the home of your creativity – bet your desk isn’t that tidy normally though!

    • Kate Toon

      You know what? It actually is. Cleaning my desk is the first thing I do each morning. Helps me get into work mode!

  13. April

    I laughed at your poster as I always have to double check definitely, one of my pet hates and yet I don’t normally struggle with spelling. In love with your she shed and my 11 year old is now intent on making her room her own “she shed”, bring on the creative spaces I say.

    • Kate Toon

      Oh yes I definitely struggle with definitely. And hurrah for creative spaces, although it also sometimes feels like a, very lovely, work prison too!

  14. Bee Tee

    #brilliant! 🙂

    • Kate Toon

      Thanks BT!

  15. RachelsList
