“because a man’s place isn’t in the home” but in the shed!
There is very private relationship between a man and his shed.
For a man’s shed, however uninviting, is a place to shelter not just from the rain but also from the ups and downs of daily life.
It is as much a mental as a physical hideaway, as it is a place to create or fix things around the house.
It is a place to daydream, perchance to snooze.
It is escapism from the grind of what might loosely be called life.
It is sanctuary.
