Yoho Backyard Office

The Yoho Backyard Office is a great get it done garden office. An effective simple structure where you can work, rest or play. We have stripped out the unnecessary to be able to deliver exactly what you need quickly and effectively.

If you are looking for a backyard office, a garden studio, she shed, man cave or an extra hoppy space the Yoho Backyard Office will do the job for you. The Yoho is designed with performance, value, and delivery in mind.

The design is performance led. The design matches or exceeds building standards. The roof is metal clad with R30 insulation, the walls have R22 insulation as does the floor. We wrap the building using an adhesive membrane and all joints sealed with sealant to ensure we have a tight building envelope and no drafts.

We can offer the Yoho as an excellent value proposition by using commercially available components. This means lower cost, lower inventory costs which we can pass on to you the customer.

We can deliver the Yoho to almost any location. Because we do all the hard work in our Calgary factory our focus when we get to your backyard can be on getting things right. So what does delivery look like? Day 1 we make sure the foundations are good and level, the skid goes in, next the walls and the roof. Day 2 is patio doors, windows, and the interior. Day 3 you can move in.

  • A 4 foot by 4 foot double glazed sliding window. Over 60% of the front wall is either window or patio door to let in lots of good natural Light .
  • Or alternatively how about two 5 foot patio doors next to each other to give maximum sunlight and summer warmth and cooling cross breezes.
