We can build them ready to crane onsite or assemble onsite pending your location. Prototypes are currently 25-50% off for a limited time valid Sept-October 2020. If you'd like to do your own finishing and add your own windows/fixtures/installation we can price out a "shell" unit and ship it by flatpack. All panels are premade. Just assemble walls to the floor panel and then set the roof.
Without permit requirement: 8x8, 8x10, 8x10, 8x12, 10x10 (larger sizes can be dropped onto a trailer).

Build a shed, garage, or other accessory building
Sheds are intended to be used as minor accessory structures for storing goods. They are not permitted in a front yard in most zones, and they can't be used for parking or occupation.
Whether or not you need a permit to build a shed depends on the size of the shed.
Is your shed smaller than 10 sq meters? No permit required
You do not need a building permit to put up a shed smaller than 10 sq. meters (108 sq ft).
However, you will still need to submit a site plan to the building department, showing the size and placement of the shed, as it must conform to the zoning bylaw.
Generally, the setbacks and height restrictions for a shed are:
- 3m (10ft) from a street (other than a fronting street)
- 1.4m (5ft) from a lane
- 1.2m (4ft) from a side property line
- 1.5m (5ft) from any structure
- 3.6m (12ft) maximum height for a flat roof
- 4.5m (15ft) maximum height for a roof with a slope greater than 3 in 12.
However, the rules for setbacks and siting are specific to neighbourhood zones. Refer to your specific zone information for exact size and siting specifications.
Is your shed larger than 10 sq meters? You need a permit
A shed greater than 10 sq meters can be built in combination with a garage, but the shed itself can't be used for parking. If you want to use your shed for parking, as a studio, dwelling, or hobby area, the structure is no longer considered a shed, and may not be permitted.
Garages and other accessory buildings
The rules for the size and placement of garages, parking structures, and other accessory buildings on your property vary, depending on which residential zone your property is in.
