For the Green Thumb
For years, Mary McCachern was mentally drawing up plans for a she shed to end all she sheds. Finally, on a milestone birthday, she had her wish. On the property of their lakeside home on Lake Norman, North Carolina, McCachern’s gabled custom shed sprang to life. Generously sized at 10 feet by 16 feet, the shed was modeled after a little shingled cottage with green trim that McCachern spied on a magazine cover.
From top to bottom, McCachern's classic shed is ornamented with antique tools, gardening pieces, signs, and wooden elements of the past.
