Having recently completed construction on their Modern / Contemporary Westcoast Home in North Vancouver our client realized they had a problem. As with most “Modern” designs there is little room for the storage of “STUFF”!
This too was the case, no room for the lawn mower, shovels, rakes etc. that would be used to keep their yard pristine and clean.
Our client called us needing to find a storage solution to their problem and reclaim all the room in their garage taken up the yard care implements.
Our client lived in their “Vancouver Special” with her husband, two teenage boys and her parents in the basement suite. They were in need of somewhere for the boys to hangout, to give the guys some privacy but most importantly give the parents some piece and quite from the video games and tv.
The solution was a Tough-Structures Contemporary Backyard Office / Hangout Room. Installed in just three weeks this great little building solved their needs quickly and cost effectively!
Our clients purchased their new Modern style house only to realize one of the main downsides of Modern Design… the lack of storage.
Turning to the yard to recover that storage space there was nowhere feasible to build in the front yard and with a 45° drop off to the backyard those two areas were out of the question. The only other viable option a thin postage stamp strip of land between the neighbouring yard and the house.
Westcoast Outbuildings designed, fabricated and installed this 7’x16’ Contemporary Prefab Storage shed to add 112 Sq/Ft of storage space.

With a new baby in the family, our client decided it was time for more outdoor storage. Time to move the bikes out of the garage and make way for strollers and car seats. Of course with the District of North Vancouver’s new Bi-Weekly garbage pickup a longer-term, animal-proof garbage storage facility was now needed.
Our client chooses our brand new Tough-Structures Contemporary Garden Shed design. This sleek single pitch roof is paired with poly-carbonate clerestory windows which let in a ton of light. My client also opted to add an additional window for increased ventilation and light.
One of the great things about our Tough-Structures line of buildings is that they are not permanently affixed to the ground and can be easily moved or relocated as necessary.
