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.
Here is a cute little Modern-Shed Backyard Office we built in the fall of 2012 in North Vancouver.
We worked with the client to pick the right location in their yard, the right paint colour, siding type, deck configuration, you name it! And when the project was complete the client was ecstatic with the end result. It was the way every job should go 🙂
But and a big BUT… Not every project goes exactly as planned.
This North Vancouver Shed is located on a heavily treed lot that rarely sees the full light of day. Within a couple of weeks of the installation being complete, the client started to notice a black fungus / mold growing on the underside of the roof on the exterior of the shed.
Too Much Time Spent Building & Not Enough Time Promoting?
I guess it’s a good problem to have but I have neglected to keep you all in the loop with what we’ve been doing lately.
I started going through all the projects we completed in 2013 and realized that I didn’t post any pictures (or very few) for the majority of them. Too busy building and not enough time promoting.
We are very close to releasing photo galleries for all 33 Project Buildings in 2013 but here is a sneak-peak of one of my favourites of the year.
Completed in the Spring for a very well know Restaurateur in West #Vancouver this build was a 12′ x 12′ Modern-Shed #PreFab #Workout Room complete with wrap around Trex Deck. Plus who can forget the outdoor shower!
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.
Man Cave: Escape from Reality Relationship Builder?
Man Cave By Modern-Shed
The term “man cave” first entered our vernacular in 1992, when Toronto columnist Joanne Lovering jokingly suggested an alternative name for the basement, as reported in a humorous historical look at the man cave in the LA Times last year. But what is a man cave, exactly? And why does every couple need one?
Wikipedia defines a man cave — also known as a manland, mantuary or a manspace; as a male sanctuary or room inside or outside of the home that provides men with a place to de-stress, indulge in their hobbies or generally “do as they please” without upsetting the “female sensibilities” of a home.
