A Stunning Space to Escape

Our customer Matthew lives in downtown Toronto and has a busy corporate job to match his busy surroundings. Being close to work was important for his lifestyle but finding homes with adequate space for a growing family in downtown Toronto is no easy task. He came to the conclusion that a backyard studio could give his family some much needed breathing room to escape, and a more private place for him to de-stress and play his drums without bothering his loved ones.

The Design

Matthew's first priority was space. Despite his small backyard we worked with a landscaper to clear the existing setup and get a concrete pad in place that would give us the absolute maximum footprint we could fit in his yard while staying within permit requirements. Matthew spared no expense with his design, opting for premium aluminum windows and doors to let in plenty of natural light and airflow and even chose Clear Cedar as his siding. We complimented the natural Cedar beautifully with black steel trim, stained black outriggers and even some black porch lights out in front to keep access illuminated in the evening. Despite Cedar being superior to pine for longevity, it will still weather overtime, so we treated it with a high quality Clear Coat to protect it from the sun and the elements for years to come.

Bringing Peace

The footprint and ample windows helped create a space that felt large and inviting, practically a home away from home. The landscaping in his backyard meant the view from the inside was full of nature, and more like a cottage getaway than a downtown apartment. We helped Matthew to create a warm place to relax, cool off, or simply escape from the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle that is downtown Toronto. An accomplishment that him and his family have found tremendously useful since the build.

The Possibilities are Endless

Matthew and his family have made great use of the space, but the versatility is worth mentioning as well. The unit was completed with full climate control for year round usage, and could easily be converted into a large office space, a fitness studio, or even an art studio where you can be alone, be yourself, and create. Whatever your needs, we're happy help you design and build the structure that will make you feel fulfilled.

asked questions

What makes cedar garden sheds different from other materials?

Cedar possesses inherent properties that make it a preferred material for garden sheds. Its natural oils act as preservatives, resisting decay, insects, and moisture. This innate quality reduces the need for chemical treatments, making it an environmentally friendly choice for outdoor structures. Moreover, cedar emits a distinct aroma as a natural insect repellent.

Are cedar sheds suitable for the Canadian climate?

Cedar is exceptionally well-suited to Canada's diverse climate. Its natural resilience allows it to withstand harsh weather conditions, including extreme cold and moisture variations. The wood's ability to expand and contract without warping or cracking makes it ideal for enduring the country's seasonal changes.

Do cedar sheds come in various sizes?

Backyard Escape Studios offers cedar sheds in multiple sizes and designs to cater to diverse storage needs and backyard dimensions. Whether for compact spaces or larger storage requirements, there's a wide selection available to suit different preferences.

Can I use cedar garden sheds for storing garden tools and equipment?

Cedar garden sheds are ideal for storing gardening tools and equipment. The wood's natural durability protects tools from harsh weather conditions, preserving their quality and functionality. Additionally, these sheds offer ample space and organization options for various garden implements.

How long can I expect a cedar storage shed to last?

Cedar is renowned for its durability and can withstand the elements for several decades if properly maintained. Regular upkeep, such as occasional cleaning and resealing, significantly extends its lifespan, ensuring it remains a sturdy and reliable structure for many years.

Are the cedar garden sheds customizable?

Backyard Escape Studios provides customizable options, allowing customers to tailor their cedar garden sheds to specific requirements. From adjusting size and layout to adding unique features and accessories, these sheds can be personalized to meet individual preferences.

Do cedar sheds require any special maintenance?

While cedar is naturally resistant to decay and insects, regular maintenance can further prolong its lifespan. Applying protective coatings like stains or sealants periodically helps preserve the wood's integrity, preventing weathering and maintaining its appearance.

Can cedar garden sheds be used for more than storage?

Cedar garden sheds offer versatility beyond just storage. They can serve as versatile spaces, accommodating workshops, hobby areas, or serene retreats. With customizable options, they can be designed to fulfill various needs beyond storage.

How do cedar garden sheds benefit the overall aesthetics of a backyard?
