Why we’re different

We're Out Back is a local Austin, TX company. We will personally meet with you and discuss your needs. Whether it be an unfinished shed for storage, studio, or additional dwelling unit, we can customize space that is to your specifications, not a pre-fabricated unit that may not be exactly what you desire.

Attention to Detail

Your satisfaction is our number one concern. Our builders select only the best quality materials so your building is well built, just like you deserve.


The owner, Malachi Elliott, has been building since 2012. He is detail oriented, which enhances his amazing workmanship.

Our Story

A few years ago, we built our own backyard space after realizing our need for a separate office space. Over these last couple of years, this extra space has allowed us to work in a quiet enviroment.  This gave us the idea to help other individuals build a space for their needs as well. That’s how we started, We’re Out Back, a business helping others gain some space without having to go through the high cost and aggravation of a house remodel.  We would love to help you with whatever building you may need!

Interested in joining our team or helping out with a project?

We’re Out Back is always looking for builders, sub-contractors, electricians and plumbers to help with our projects.  If you think you would like to help in any of these areas, contact us.

We’re Out Back solved all of our storage needs with a high-quality building.
We are extremely pleased with the end result.

As the housing market got crazy and the working from home trend continued, we decided to pull the trigger on getting an extra space built in our backyard for my office. After talking with Malachi about the project and seeing his attention to detail, excitement for helping us out and hearing his ideas, we decided to move forward. The space is absolutely amazing and even nicer than I imagined. It’s built to last! Malachi was also professional and friendly, both of which made us feel comfortable throughout the process. I’ve already gotten so many compliments on the space during my Zoom calls. I think everyone needs their own ‘studio’ built by Malachi.

Malachi built our backyard office in record time and cut no corners. The office is pleasant, includes a lovely front porch with a swing and is built to last. I love having my own office as it provides much needed quiet and separation from home.

We needed more space and after looking at several possibilities for more storage space, we found Malachi Elliott of We’re Out Back. We were very pleased with his excellent work. Malachi provided us with what we needed.

I first became aware of Malachi’s work when he built a shed in his own backyard. I admired it for a couple of years. Then one day, he and I were chatting about his shed and he offered to build one for me. I took him up on it and now have the nicest “shed” in the neighborhood. Malachi’s workmanship and attention to detail is amazing. I recommend him highly. You won’t be disappointed.
