We design and prefabricate our backyard offices, studios and sheds in Calgary and then assemble on site for customers in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and throughout AB, BC and SK.
What is a Backyard …?
A Backyard Office, Studio or Shed is a purpose-built prefab structure that is factory built to precise tolerances and erected in your yard. Having a footprint less than 10m2/107sq ft it does not need planning permit in most jurisdictions.
There are many reasons to have backyard office from needing a space away from the home to work to wanting to avoid the daily commute. Whatever the reason we can design with you a space that meets your needs
We design with you what you want your backyard space to be. It normally then takes us 3 weeks to source all the parts and make the sub assemblies. After that we need 2 to 3 days max on site erect your new space.
Design and Built better – far more than a shed
Our buildings may be small, but a lot of thought has gone into them. We started by designing a performance building envelope and asked simple questions such as “how do we keep as much warmth in the structure as possible?”. Next we looked how do we design our backyard office to be easy to fabricate and at the same time make it flexible so that we have options on the type of windows and doors used, their positioning and the protective cladding we use.
Finally, we worked through how to ensure as much work as possible is done in the shop. This allows us to work in a controlled environment and where we can achieve precision that we would find far more difficult if we did all the work on site. This then also allows us to be efficient on site and get the job done quickly and get you into your space quicker.
Advantages of a Backyard Office, Studio or Shed

As you may have read, wood prices have increased massively over the last year. Unfortunately this does mean that our prices in turn have been affected and will continue to be affected. Sadly it means we can not always meet the prices on the website.
