He vs. She Shed Shindig

It’s Time to Choose Sides!

If you were thinking we couldn’t top the excitement of last year’s’ Rotelle Open House, think again.  This summer, in anticipation of our Second Annual Studio(e) Dream BIG Custom Home event, the sexes will be duking it out in the backyard in the ultimate battle of the sheds.

Once again we’ve enlisted reality TV star Ty Pennington to help the male team go head-to-head with the custom home builder’s all-female design team in the first-ever He vs. She Shed Shindig. The warring teams will be turning the traditional garden storage shed into a creative outdoor living space uniquely his and hers.

Rules will be broken. Tempers will flare. The program moderator will resign daily. Winner takes all! Follow the fun and finish on Facebook and YouTube!


Event Description

Rotelle Studio(e) has enlisted reality star Ty Pennington of “Trading Spaces” and “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” fame to help go head-to-head with the premier eastern Pennsylvania custom home builder’s all-female design team in the first-ever He vs. She Shed Shindig. The design contest will culminate in a reveal during Rotelle’s second annual Studio(e) Dream BIG Custom Home Event on Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018.

Rotelle Studio(e)’s He vs. She Shed Shindig challenges the men and women to turn the traditional garden storage shed into a creative outdoor living space uniquely his and hers. Facebook followers, attendees of the Studio(e) Dream Big Custom Home Event, and WMGK 102.9 listeners will vote for the winning shed. One of the sheds will be raffled off to registered voters (see rules here), and the other auctioned off with proceeds to benefit the services of Ashley Addiction Treatment in Havre de Grace, MD.

Shed Auction to Benefit Ashley Addiction Treatment

Rotelle Studio(e) will hold an online auction for one of their unique sheds and donate the proceeds to Ashley Addiction Treatment. Founded in 1983 by Father Joseph C. Martin, S.S. and his friend and business partner, Mae Abraham who initiated the idea to build a treatment facility. Ashley Addiction Treatment helps people get well who suffer from the disease of alcoholism and other addictions.

Father Martin was widely regarded as a pioneer in his field. It was his direct and compassionate approach to healing that was so innovative. He removed stigmas that deemed addiction a choice, rather than a disease, and encouraged holistic treatment to maintain lasting recovery. Today, Ashley Addiction Treatment’s expert team is committed to preserving the spirit of its founders by helping more people get the treatment they need to heal.
