Great shed, great service

In the Back Yard provides prompt and efficient service. Staff are personable and helpful in answering any and all questions. I am extremely pleased with my Haliburton cottage style shed - and impressed with the speed in which the crew dismantled and removed my old shed and built this new one. The job site was left perfectly clean (which in my experience hasn't always been the case when hiring people for different projects around my house.)

I would highly recommend this company for the quality of their produce, their customer service and efficiency in fulfilling their customers wishes.

Thank you In The Back Yard.

Back Yard Shed

We just had a Bobcaygeon Cottage installed in our back yard, very pleased with the quality of the materials used. The installers, Jay & Justin were great, they did a fantastic job, no mess left behind for us to clean up. The owner, Peter was very prompt in responding to e-mails & phone calls.

Garden Shed

We are very happy with the whole experience. We picked the shed, got a quote, and set a delivery date in a no hassle easy fashion. At the appointed time, the guys showed up and set the base and constructed the shed in about two hours. They provided suggestions and helpful tips about painting the trim and then cleaned up. We were ready to use the shed. A follow-up call from Peter to ensure everything was right completed the process. Highly recommend this service.

Muskoka Barn Yard Shed

Such an amazing shed and great quality product. The install by Peter's boys was excellent. It is everything that I expected and was super cool to be able to do your own online quote. I highly recommend using In The Back Yard if you're in the market for a back yard shed. Again, can't say enough of how happy I am with their service. Thanks Peter & Boys.

Best price, best service, best construction

I am very particular when it comes to researching projects to make sure I get the best deal/value there is. Nothing bothers me more than paying too much for something. After extensive research on sheds, the construction, and price, I decided to go with "In the Back Yard". I'm extremely happy I did, they were very professional from the initial quote, through the booking, to completion. The shed isn't like the kits you would get from the big box stores, it's made from house standard lumber sizes, 2x4, 2x6, etc. Very sturdy, installed level and turn key. It looks great and feels great for the same price as the box store inferior shed kit if you included installation! I'm about 5 weeks late writing the review but trust me these guys are the best value around!

Custom Shed

I needed a shed for the back yard and wanted to have someone locally build it and set it up. I found "in the back yard" who is in the Stoney Creek area. I called and spoke with Peter, I wanted one that I seen online, sent him the pictures, he quoted it and a few weeks later it was built in their shop. We scheduled an installation date, Rob came out with Peter and they started to put it all together. The shed is great, the guys really do a superb job. I'm very happy with the outcome. Great company to work with.

Backyard Shed Installation

We had a wooden shed in our yard that was starting to show it's age. We originally planned to purchase a man-made shed that would not require upkeep. Normally I go to Home Stars for recommendations, but I found the website for In the Backyard by chance and it was "Brian Baumler approved."The pictures on their web site convinced us to go with a wooden shed again. I asked for a quote and Peter responded quickly. I sent him photos of the shed that was being replaced, as we asked for the old shed removal to be included in the price, as we are seniors and we also do not have the proper tools.
The install date was delayed due to circumstances beyond Peter's control, but he kept us in the loop and the product was delivered the week before the installation by the installation team. These young men looked at the old shed and they presumed there would be no issues. However, when the old shed was removed they found holes from animals in the space where the previous shed had been and concrete from a previous sidewalk installation. Leveling for the new shed is apparently not part of the installation process, so the installers asked my husband for his input. As a result the shed was installed on the edging stones of our new brick patio and there
were large gaps under all sides of the shed.
I emailed Peter as soon as I saw how it looked and sent him pictures. I explained that we needed to have it off of the bricking and asked what we could do. He responded promptly the next day. He agreed that he and his foreman Rob would be able to rectify the situation as the shed only had to be moved a few inches and he arranged to come to Mississauga with the equipment needed to fix the job. Thanks to Peter and Rob's expertise they were able to move the shed and then make adjustments so that the doors fit properly.
I would recommend this company to install a shed, but be aware that leveling is not part of the installation process, so this is something the homeowner would need to do beforehand, if needed. The shed comes primed for painting and we have now completed one coat of paint. The shed we chose has a small window, with a screen, to the left of the double doors and a vent on one side of the shed just under the roof line. The top half of the double doors have windows so there is lots of natural light. We opted to add solar lights on each side of the door and they complete the look beautifully.

Hi Nancy, so glad you are happy with your shed. We aim to please. Just a note that all of our shed foundations are leveled and squared prior to wall installation.
Thanks again.

What a Cabana!!

I was looking for a company to build a custom designed Cabana in my back yard. I had quotes from several companies including Flamborough Sheds, Duro-Shed and Shed in a Day.
In the Back Yard was by far the friendliest and most affordable company out of all of them.
They had excellent customer service and built exactly what I wanted (5 sided 9x9 cabana). I would recommend this company to anyone.
Awesome job guys. I've had nothing but compliments.

Garden Shed

I am very pleased with the 'Haliburton Cottage' garden shed that 'In the Back Yard' constructed for me. The shed is of excellent quality and the construction crew were very competent and professional. I would certainly use them again and would recommend them to friends and neighbours.

We Love Our Shed!!

I highly recommend In the Back Yard to anyone who needs a good quality shed for a great price! We shopped around and hated the look of the flimsy plastic sheds, so we were extremely happy when we found In The Back Yard. They were very friendly and knowledgeable with quick responses to any questions I had.

My husband and I both love our new shed, not only for the storage, but also the added character it gives our yard.
