"I found Backyard Unlimited on the web in 2019. I was immediately drawn to them because of their ability to do drawing submittals as well as the construction of an ADU. It was a one stop shop and now that my ADU is complete I can say I am very satisfied with the service, quality and most importantly their ability to honor the price that was in contract. The permitting and plan submittal was the most time consuming part of the process and it did have to do with me requesting a major change in the plans due to new setback rules that would benefit my ADU. Max was supportive and understanding of the changes and once I finally got the permit, it was a matter of scheduling to break ground. Unfortunately it was rainy season and covid which delayed the start. Once it started, things progressed and inspection with city inspectors went well. Because the ADU was in the peninsula in San Mateo County, the scheduling was a little tricky since they drive from the Sacrameto area, but it didn’t bother me that much. What I was most looking for was for the ADU to be built properly, pass inspection, stay within budget and for them to stand behind the quality of the work. I’m happy to say, all those criteria were met. I didn’t go over budget. No major issues with the city inspector were found. I notified them of some quality corrections and they immediately acknowledged and responded which demonstrated to me they have ongoing care and pride in what they do. I would use Backyard Unlimited again in the future and I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family. Good luck on your projects.
"They did a 20x14 studio for me. They were helpful and accommodating at all stages of the process. The workmanship and quality of the shed was excellent. An excellent value for the price."
"We love this shed! Far exceeding our expectations. The crew who installed our shed were professional and efficient. Quality is outstanding! From our first call with Backyard Unlimited to the time the shed was installed, finished with this beautiful color, our experience was exceptional."
“I want to compliment Nathan and his team. The whole experience was top notch! His team showed up when they said they would show up, finished on time, cleaned up as they went and were literally the nicest construction crew I have ever met! Everyone on this project was polite, respectful, professional and genuinely seemed to love their job. The Pavilion is beautiful, and I can't say enough about their craftsmanship and quality of work. This was by far the best experience I have ever had with a construction project at my house! I highly recommend Nathan and his team!”
"They custom tailored a shed for me and delivered it with pinpoint precision. Unfortunately a few roof shingles were damaged from the highway transport but they came out the next day and fixed for me. Overall excellent experience and would definitely use again if I need a new shed. Highly recommend."
“Just sitting under our new pavilion, it's been a week since it came, and we couldn't be happier! It is magnificent and we can't thank you enough. The assembly team are true craftsmen, I can't believe what they did in only two days. I keep looking outside to make sure it's really there, and I wasn't just dreaming again. We can't wait to share with our family and friends. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, it's a dream come true!”
"Fantastic shed beautifully constructed and major attention to detail. All workers professional, clean and knowledgeable especially Donny who did a wonderful job and completed the final product - excellent experience!!"
“I ordered a 120 square foot storage barn with a high roof and lots of built in shelving. I am completely delighted with the result. It is beautiful and very solidly built. They may cost a little more, but they deliver a very high-quality product and the service is great.”
"Awesome shed, and awesome design. The workers were professional and did everything they said they were going to do. This shed makes tuff shed look like a doghouse. I couldn’t be more pleased."
"Outstanding quality of product, fantastic crew and workmanship, could not be happier with overall experience. highly recommend this business."
"My experience was great from start to finish! I highly recommend Backyard Unlimited."
"We've gotten a chicken coop, and a shed from them. They have great quality stuff, and so far I'm super happy with their craftsmanship. Plus everything is designed to be built at their shop then brought out to you. They have a cool rig where they can place the building pretty much anywhere. They are a bit pricy, but these are definitely not tuff sheds. They are made much better and it shows."
"It’s a beautiful shed and 4 guys installed it in one day!"
"I think it is a beautiful gazebo...it's well built, and the color is very nice. This is the greatest thing and I really would promote it anywhere in the world! I also like the way my octagon poly table fits inside it."
"Wonderful displays of outdoor and indoor possibilities. My questions were answered quickly, with options only experienced by time spent with many customers."
"The sales office was very helpful and we were able to adjust the standard size shed to fit our space."
“I wanted to let you know I am thrilled with the Gazebo! It's fantastic! The color is matching what I have out here already. It's the star of the backyard! Your guys were great. I have enjoyed them very much.”
“Excellent company. From Jerry the salesman to Jesse the installer, everyone was friendly, efficient, and a pleasure to work with. The gazebo looks fantastic. We highly recommend Backyard Unlimited.”
“We had a fire that totally destroyed our garden shed and chicken coop. We found Backyard Unlimited on line and visited their Auburn location. The buying experience was great – no pressure – quite the contrary, they bent over backwards to get us exactly what we wanted. And we were fussy about design and colors! When it came to delivery and installation, they were right on time and professional. Both the shed and coop were ready by the end of the day and were show-room perfect. The installers even went so far as to leave the site cleaner than they found it. Great job by a great company!”
“Very nice sheds. We ordered 2 sheds and had them installed a few weeks ago. The installers were polite and did a good job. The sheds are very nice and include a lot of nice touches that aren’t on other companies’ sheds. Very glad we went with these.”
“Just got my craft studio built (12x14, her name is Clarissa). I’m looking so forward to fixing up the inside. They did a wonderful job, came out in 32-degree weather and finished late in the evening in 32-degree weather! And it's now been raining on her for a few days and NO LEAKS. So, so far so good. I'm very pleased and would highly recommend Backyard Unlimited.”
“Nathan and the crew at Backyard Unlimited are wonderful! Great products and great service. I had them build a shed for my father on a property near Auburn and the whole process was as easy as could be. Nathan helped throughout, from picking the appropriate shed to coming out and making sure the site was suitable to the actual installation. It even came in a touch under the estimated price. I couldn't be happier with the results and, more importantly, my father is loving his new shed.”
“Had a fantastic experience with this company! They are located right down the street from me and passed them every day when I go to work, so when I was in the market for a pergola, I popped in and worked with Nathan on pricing and scheduling. He told me how he started the company and the Amish styled products he learned when living in Pennsylvania. The finished product looks amazing and they literally had the whole thing installed in under 3 hours! Couldn't be happier and will be recommending them to friends and family!”
“Our Hearthside Pergola is BEAUTIFUL! Seeing it in the brochure; we knew that it would be nice...but we are "blown away" by how wonderful it looks in our yard! Excellent quality, meticulous installation, attention to detail...your people are the best workmen we've seen in a long time. We will recommend your company to all; and look forward to enjoying our dining area for many years to come!”
“We purchased a 10x12 as that was all the zoning would allow. It was set up in one day. The team and the quality of the product were great. We have now, wired, insulated, sheet rocked, textured, conditioned, and painted and I have one of the nicest offices of my career. The neighbors all love it as well. The transom feature offers great light and gives a sense of a bigger space to the interior. It is a fine product from a great team.”
“I LOVE my 10x12 shed! I was very surprised at how cool it stayed inside this past summer as it gets the southwest exposure. It must be that silver coating on the inside that keeps it cool and the roof vent. It is well made. I have recommended you to all of my friends.”
“Gazebo turned out beautiful. Installers are very nice and professional. Very good experience from beginning to completion.”
"Beyond satisfied. Great workmanship. Tremendous customer service!"
“The shed was installed yesterday, and we are as pleased with what we got as we were with the samples in the showroom. Backyard Unlimited staff was helpful and provided excellent communication throughout the process. The installation team was equally courteous and efficient, they bent over backwards to accommodate our schedule, the construction quality is excellent, and they left the site spotless… I’m very pleased and could not ask for more.”
"Purchased a custom pavilion from Backyard Unlimited. They were very flexible as we added and deleted items from the “standard” pavilion as we were intending to customize it after installation anyway. The base pavilion is made of quality materials and was a pretty straight forward installation."
“Everything from the first call I made to Jerry W a few weeks ago through today when the custom shed was completed was a great experience. Highly recommend them. Very organized, prompt, and the guys that constructed it were very courteous, clean, did an outstanding job. Before they left, they made sure I was happy and asked if I had questions, and then shortly after they left got a call from John checking on the project, did I have any questions/issues/etc. Fantastic experience and we are extremely happy with the custom shed. Thanks very much!”
“Backyard Unlimited and install crew did an outstanding job installing our dog's kennel. It was so well made and actually looks like a smaller version of our house with yellow and white trim. Arnie, our 15-year-old Cocker Spaniel, is having the time of his life enjoying the indoor-outdoor run portion of cottage and has a great view of our yard from open air pen portion of dog house kennel. We never worry about him getting loose when we're away from the house and know he'll be safe, secure and relaxed watching the birds, squirrels and trees in a beautiful surrounding. Thanks again for your excellent-professional service.”
