“Trading Spaces” Ty Pennington joins premier eastern Pennsylvania custom home builder’s He vs. She Shed Shindig


SOUTH COVENTRY, Pa. – July 19, 2018 – This summer, the sexes duke it out in the backyard in the ultimate battle of the sheds. Rotelle Studio(e) has enlisted 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.

Inspired by the growing popularity of tiny houses and the reimagined shed as the new backyard getaway, Rotelle Studio(e)’s He vs. She Shed Shindig pits the men against the women in turning the traditional garden storage shed into a creative outdoor living space uniquely his and hers. Attendees of the Studio(e) Dream Big Custom Home Event will vote for the winning shed, with one of the sheds to be raffled off to registered voters and the other to be auctioned off with proceeds to benefit the services of Ashley Addiction Treatment in Havre de Grace, MD.

Two teams of three men and three women will use repurposed and reclaimed materials – wood, antiques, textiles, industrial and farming equipment, etc. – to design and furnish the 12-by-14-foot sheds. Ty Pennington’s design hand will help equalize the men’s team, which includes Studio(e) Owner and President Peter Rotelle and Senior Project Manager, Ken Zimmerman against the custom home builder’s female team, including Chief Architect, Heather Ryan, Chief Designer Renée Pratt, and Design Consultant, Emily Wisler.

Over the course of the summer, progress of the shed battle will be followed on Studio(e)’s Facebook Page. For more information, visit www.rotelle.com.
