Our quest to help women find space of their own has gone outdoors. Do you have a special space?

We’re still kinda obsessed with finding space for women to kick back and relax on par with the guys’ “man cave. (http://www.houselogic.com/blog/home-thoughts/man-cave-woman-cave/)”

Now, the Wall Street Journal (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203370604577265471922759502.html?mod=googlenews_wsj) says the backyard greenhouse has become the she-space where retired baby boomers pester orchids and read, sip some Pinot, and generally relax.

The WSJ greenhouses are the high-end kind – glass walls, brick siding, price tags reaching $100,000. They’re really a detached sunroom with year-round conditioned space.

But you don’t have to raid the college fund to approximate this deluxe space. Gothic Arch Greenhouses’ Cape Cod (http://www.gothicarchgreenhouses.com/cape-cod-greenhouses.htm) model ranges from $3,800 to $16,800.

And Greenhouse Showcase has a portable, zip-together Clear Farmhouse (http://www.greenhouseshowcase.com/clear-farmhouse.htm) model for about $480.

Do you have a she-cave space?
