The order of this shed from Backyard Escape Studios can only be described as seamless from beginning to end. They emailed photos to document the sheds progress as parts were prepared along the way.  The delivery and installation was impeccable, the shed beautiful and modern. Normally you don’t think of a shed as a centerpiece to your backyard but this shed is truly a showstopper.

Our experience with backyard escape studios was exceptional from initial contact to design and through to final installation.  The installers were professional, meticulous and polite.  Our shed is beautiful - even better than we anticipated.

I highly recommend Backyard Escapes. They provided excellent support as we designed our shed, talking us through pros and cons of various options; helped us navigate some last minute design changes; and, absolutely wow’d us with any incredibly professional, efficient, and fun install (the team was just awesome). The end result was extremely well crafted and met our needs perfectly!

It was a great experience working with Sebastian and his team starting from the custom design requirements that i had all through the process of foundation building permit to installation.

I definitely recommend Backyard Escape Studios for others to work with Sebastian and his team.

The shed is a delight, looks great and is very functional. Backyard Escapes did a great job from design, delivery, installation and on time.  Their sheds are expensive but of great quality and to my mind worth the expense. All their joints and corners are well sealed with no room for rodents to enter. I have now had the Backyard Escape shed for about 6 months and their is no evidence of rodents. I would recommend them to anyone.

Our Process


Use our contact form to get in touch with us regarding your project and supply us with preliminary details. We will reach out via email or phone to further discuss details with you such as footprint, design, intended use, local bylaws, timeline, and budget.


We will compile a detailed quote for you and your project, giving you the option to change, remove, or add certain elements to give you the shed that will most match your vision while staying within your budget.

Shed Quote with Detailed Pricing
3D Render of a Storage Shed
Sketch and Fine Design

We will create a personal 3D sketch for your desired project to help you better visualize the completed structure. This is your opportunity to make sure it perfectly matches your vision and make any changes to colour choices, siding options, and windows and door selection.


Our team in the shop will construct as many elements of your build as possible before we arrive to ensure a quick and seamless installation on site. Photo updates of your build can be sent during the process if desired.

Delivery and Installation

Our install team will arrive bright and early with all the tools and materials required to complete your studio or shed. Once the structure is complete the crew leader will do a walkthrough with you to show you how your structure works, give you general maintenance guidance, and answer any questions you may have about your new structure. 

Things to Think About When Designing Your Shed

Shed Sizes
We offer standard sizes for ease of production and reduced cost, but all of our garden sheds can be built to custom sizes to fit your needs and available space. The majority of our sheds are built under 160 square feet, which is the allowable size for an accessory structure before a permit is required. If you're looking to build a shed or studio above 160 square feet we can also provide engineered drawings and help you through the permit process.
Windows and Doors
Our most common door is a modern barn sliding door with three glass inserts, but standard swing doors, French doors, or patio sliding doors can also be added to your structure. We offer standard vinyl windows, or if you'd like to save on cost we can build simple wooden framed windows with Lexan glass panels to give your shed some natural light.
Since the very beginning of Backyard Escape Studios, we have been using steel as our main siding choice. The steel reinforcement helps keep your walls rigid and square and you'll never have to worry about rodents or insects burrowing into your studio, shed, or bunkie. Our high-quality Canadian steel is as maintenance-free as you can get and will easily last decades with no fading or rust. For our front wall we typically use tongue and groove pine, but we do offer shiplap pine and cedar options as well. Check out our Style Guide and our Steel Colour Sheet for some ideas on how to design the siding portion of your structure.
There are many different ways of building a foundation for your shed. We believe that concrete pads offer the best quality foundation solution and always recommend these first. If the pad is unaffordable or you already have a different pad in place we can still work with patio stones, interlock stones, gravel pads, concrete, earth screws, or Sono tubes. Our sheds and subfloors can accommodate the most cost-effective and solid foundation that is available in your area. Please contact us so that we can discuss the options that would be best for you. We know that a solid foundation is just as important as the structure that stands on top.
Our garden sheds can be as individual as your backyard. Your choice of windows, doors, and siding can greatly change the price of your final product. Our prices are listed on the pages for each model and we keep a record of the build costs of past projects if you see something you like in our gallery and would like an estimate on something similar. Please contact us and provide us with as much information as you can about your ideas and we can provide a general price range of what your shed may cost. From there we can provide a sketch and guidance in your selections to help keep you within your budget. We aim to provide a solution for everybody.
How do I get started? 
Fill out our contact form or give us a call and provide us with as much information as you can, including your full address (to calculate transportation costs), backyard accessibility (to determine how much needs to be assembled onsite), and detailed ideas of what you envision your shed to look like (size, style, etc.) With this information we can provide a detailed quote. Delivery time depends heavily on the design of the shed, as well as window and door choices. We pride ourselves on our customer service, if you are a little lost and looking for guidance that's okay too! Give us a call and we can help you understand what design and material choices will best suit your needs!
