Our West Vancouver client wanted something they couldn’t get from any other supplier in Vancouver. They wanted a modern shed made with their own doors custom doors that were left over from the renovation of their house.
Westcoast Outbuildings designed and built the building around the doors.
Our aesthetically discerning client was looking to re-locate his office from a paid office space to his backyard. Looking for something a clean modern design he choose a 9×12 Lifestyle Office with Open-Joint Hardie Siding with sleek Easytrim Anodized Aluminum reveals.
Check out this cool East Vancouver Shed. Here is one I recently food near Woodland Park just off commercial Commercial Drive.
Cool East Vancouver Shed
I think the part I really like about his building is the LARGE overhangs and the use of open joint siding. I spoke with the owner and they have separated the building into two areas. One for small item storage; garbage cans, recycling etc and the other for large items like Bike and Lawn Mowers.
We often hear our customers ask us about rain screen and how it works with our open-joint siding — Oh, and what exactly is open-joint siding, why does it cost more and what the heck is Reveal Shield wrappin anyway?
We understand your confusion. So let’s break it down for you.
First of all, as we out here in Vancouver know, you need to protect your wall from the elements. Rain-screen siding is the first layer of defense against the elements, including rain, snow, sleet, wind and even the sun.
Our client had a dilemma, he had just moved into a cute little East Vancouver BC bungalow The upstairs was the perfect size for he and his wife and their two cats. In the basement was a revenue generating bachelor suite.
That meant no room for his design studio!

The Need: The Vancouver Aquariums is currently undergoing a $25 million dollar face-lift. As part of that re-design they required a temporary Ticket Building. That buildings would need to be able to process over 1 million customer transactions a year. The prefab building needed to be a custom design with 6 standard ticket windows and two wheelchair accessible ones.
With a Cottage Kit by Modern-Shed converting an unused patch of land into a luxurious Backyard Cottage is easier than you might think.
First the client had chosen the style and type of cottage kit they wanted. They were referred by Modern-Shed to a local construction company to handle the installation on Whidbey Island in Washington Stat’s Puget Sound
Highly versed with Modern-Shed Cottage Kit installation the construction company conducted a site visit to familiarize themselves with the location and site conditions. A couple of days later they then followed up with a quote to assemble the Modern-Shed Cottage Kit.
The total installation took only 7 days and included foundation prep, complete assembly. The installation also included a new electrical feed with sub-panel originating from the houses many electrical panel.
