Why Every Man Needs A Shed

News  | By Asgard

For generations men have retired to their shed to pot plants, repair lawnmowers and perhaps escape 'her indoors'. It is said that the shed to a man is like what a handbag is to a girl. Neither opposite sex understands the need for it and they both hold a mix of expensive items and random worthless objects that the owner has managed to pick up over the years.

By tradition it is said that the garden shed is a male preserve where the man of the house can retreat out of range of the stress of daily life and allow themself to indulge in hobbies such as gardening, repairs or simply daydreaming. Additionally in most households there is an unspoken rule that women and children are not allowed which most men seem to find a bonus. This household retreat can sometimes be seen by partners and family as antisocial however recent studies show there is a real benefit in letting men escape to their simple sanctuaries which could also extend their life expectancy. In addition experts say that a person can tell a lot by the way a man keeps his shed including the placing of items to how clean it is.

However the shed was not solely built for the purpose of an escape, with the price of houses continually increasing and residents have no choice but to stay put in their homes. More and more people are turning to their gardens to create a place for the extra storage and space that they need. Here at Asgard we pride ourselves in giving our customers insurance guaranteed storage solutions to rest your mind at peace when you decide to put your valuables away.
