Backyard & Outdoor Storage Sheds in Kitchener/Waterloo

Storage Shed Builder Kitchener-Waterloo

Just 100 kilometres west of Toronto, the Kitchener Metropolitan centre forms a census metropolitan area with Waterloo and Cambridge, often referred to as the Tri-Cities. Kitchener and Waterloo are twin cities however, and are usually just called Kitchener-Waterloo, despite having separate municipal governments. Whether it’s education, culture, nature, or history you’re looking for, Kitchener-Waterloo offers it all!

Kitchener is a city with a rich heritage, having been settled largely by German Mennonite farming families. Over the early 19th century, the swampland and moraines were converted into roads and farms, and buildings and churches were built. Over the next century, the extension of the Grand Trunk Railway from Sarnia to Toronto furthered the city’s growth.

Today, Kitchener-Waterloo is still home to many Mennonite families, but has grown to be far more diverse, and economically powerful. Kitchener’s diverse economy includes finance, manufacturing, insurance, digital media, and health science clusters, which have been internationally recognized.

The University of Waterloo is ranked in the top 50 engineering schools, internationally, as well as boasting many other excellent academic areas. Wilfred Laurier University also has a campus in Waterloo. For those looking to study, or break into the technology industry, Kitchener-Waterloo is a great place to be. It is, in fact, often referred to as the “Silicon Valley of the North” due to its booming start-up culture, and large concentration of tech companies.

For those after a more cultural experience, Kitchener-Waterloo hosts many vibrant festivals celebrating culture and performing arts such as:

  • Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest: Thanksgiving day parade, beer festival, live music, Bavarian food, and other entertainment.
  • Kitchener Blues Festival
  • Kitchener-Waterloo Multicultural Festival: Multicultural food, dance, crafts, and music.
  • KOI Music Festival
  • Kultrun World Music Festival

Kitchener is also home to Victoria Park, which hosts many events and festivals. For those who love the outdoors, there are many ways to enjoy the beauty of nature in Kitchener-Waterloo. Kitchener-Waterloo’s community trail system allows breathtaking views of the Grand River.

We had a 10'x6' Highlands Gable shed installed in our backyard a couple of weeks ago and were impressed with the whole experience. The service was what you would hope to get from a family-run business, as they carefully walked me through the design process, providing me every detail I needed. Installation was punctual and very professional. The shed looks great and while it's early days, it certainly looks like it was far better value than my previous plastic shed. Highly recommended!
