The most popular sizes ordered by our customers in the Greater Toronto area are the 8x6, 8x8, 10x8 or 10x12 models. Many other standard sizes are available for this storage outdoor shed as well as custom sizes.
Our basic model comes complete with 48” solid double doors (option to upgrade to 60”), spruce and/or pine trim. Architectural shingles are included with the installation option.
Our Highland Gable shed is a standard gable style structure where the roof slopes down from the centre peak to the right and left to meet up with the walls. It offers a great look to your backyard garden or outdoor space. This model is very popular for storing gardening tools, lawnmowers, outdoor furniture, snow shovels, and outdoor toys and games. This model can be found in the many suburban areas within all Southern Ontario regions such as the Toronto, Hamilton, Kitchener/Waterloo, Stoney Creek and St. Catharines areas.
The Highland Gable is a very basic model used primarily for storage but can be enhanced with many options and upgrades to create a charming cottage-like building.
Construction consists of 2×4 spruce wall studs with 24” centres and 2×6 pressure treated floor joists, 16” on centre with 5/8” tongue and groove OSB flooring. The walls are built with LP SmartSide, an engineered wood product that comes already primed in a neutral colour.
LP SmartSide siding products are treated using a proprietary process. This process consists of four components of protection adding strength and helps the product to withstand impacts, freeze/thaw cycle, high humidity, fungal decay, and termites.
The majority of the trim is made of unprimed spruce that will require painting. Roof trusses are manufactured at our facility and if required, we can have them Engineer approved and stamped in order to be compliant with local building codes.
All our sheds are installed the same day with a block and gravel foundation unless there is an existing concrete pad. Architectural shingles are available in either black or brown and come with a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Many options to upgrade are available such as upgrading the floorboards from 5/8” OSB to 5/8” pressure treated plywood. This upgrade ensures longevity and greater protection from wear and tear due to excessive use. Some other additional options available are slider windows with screens, plexiglass windows added to the solid doors, window shutters and flower boxes, a workbench, tool racks, and the list goes on.
Other sizes available.

The entire experience from my initial phone call to the final installation was flawless! Dealing with A family owned operation has its benefits. There are no surprises! A special kudos to the entire staff for making my experience so pleasant.
Once in awhile you come across a business that is truly special and @InTheBackyard is it! From the first contact, responsiveness and patience with all our questions, installation and follow-up - the team was fantastic and delivered an outstanding customer experience.
I have to say, what a great company to deal with. Everything they said they did. The whole thing was buttery smooth. I wish all companies ran like this! Thanks In The Back Yard!
Everything about dealing with this company was a pleasure. Great product and service for a fair price—I can’t recommend ITB highly enough. Thank you Peter and team!
We have a smaller yard and “In the Back Yard” had many options to chose from to suit our back yard. We certainly got what we paid for. Great product and the installers were very professional. We would definitely recommend In the Back Yard!
We are very happy with the finished product, we have received tons of compliments from our surrounding neighbours. We love the design of the Haliburton cottage! The customer service was awesome and any questions we had, were answered promptly.
