Storage shed and Backyard Living Space

This storage shed was custom built to the clients’ needs. The clients wanted additional storage for their home in order to safely store many different items. They also wanted their backyard landscaped into a relaxing, beautiful living space. The shed was designed to match the house and a flat rock path was created to flow from the deck to the shed. The rock path prevents grass and dirt from being tracked into the shed and onto the deck, while adding natural character to this backyard living space. Just like a home, this shed uses 2×4 construction with 1/2″ plywood sheathing, 60mm building paper, while being cladded with 1×10 board and fibre cement siding. The shed is electrified with lights and has a thermostat which controls an electric baseboard heater. The shed walls and ceiling are insulated and finished.
