What’s the lure of a man-cave? Or a “she-shed” for that matter. 

Do we need a space to call our own away from the pressures and realities of home life?

Author Steve Hale joined Mark Sainsbury to talk sheds and man-caves.

What impresses me the most is people who have an absolute passion for something.

"It might be a collection, it might be something they go out every night and have a workshop and build," he said.

He told RadioLIVE it’s not about how much has been "spent on the man-cave"

"It’s the purpose or what they do out there," he said.

"Whenever I go to anybody’s man-cave that they’ve spent a bit of time in, I come away thinking how little I’ve achieved in my life."
