Step 2 - Prepare the Foundation

A properly prepared base is important. On this installation the homeowner installed a 3/4" crushed stone base. Notice how they used the stone to help compensate for the difference in grade.

Step 3 - Build the Floor

Our floors are constructed on site. The 2x6 pressure treated floor joists are spaced 16" on center and topped with 3/4" exterior grade plywood. For added strength, buildings wider than 8' have a double 2x6 beam that runs the length of the building. This floor system is the best in the industry. Reeds floor construction is a major point of comparison with sheds sold by home improvement stores.

Step 4 - Stand the Walls

The walls are set into place. Each wall is constructed on hydraulic jigs at our manufacturing facility to ensure 100% accuracy to square.

Next Step

Step 5 - Attach the Bottom-Plate & Join the Corners

When a Reeds Ferry® building leaves our facility the doors, windows, and hardware are already framed, trimmed and installed. The bottom-plate of the wall is secured to the floor and the corner framing is interlocked and nailed to create 4 self-standing walls

Next Step

Step 6 - Wall Framing

Every Reeds Ferry® building is constructed with 2x4 spruce framing 16" on center. Our wall construction is another major point of comparison with the sheds found at home improvement stores. To save on cost they use smaller 2x3 studs and frame them farther apart at 24 inches.

Next Step

Step 7 - Install the End Trusses

Now that the walls are standing, the end trusses are installed. Aluminum ventilation louvers are standard in all Reeds Ferry® end walls. (The shed in this installation has our optional arched "cottage vents" with white trim.)

Next Step

Step 8 - Install the Roof Trusses

Reeds Ferry® uses high quality machine pressed 2x6 roof trusses spaced 16" on center. Our roof is engineered to withstand snow loads of 110 lbs psf, better than the most stringent building code requirement in New England.

Next Step

Step 9 - Complete the Roof Construction

1/2" BC-grade roof sheathing is installed and topped with a high quality 25 year shingle in 8 standard colors. We also offer a 30 year architectural shingle in 8 standard colors. (Custom color options are available) Note the aluminum drip edge is installed on the front and rear of the roof. In addition, we run drip edge up the sides of the roof. This feature ensures a long lasting, weather tight roof.

Next Step

Step 10 - Finished in 3 Hours

After installing the finish trim and options we do a complete inspection and site clean-up. An average size Reeds Ferry® shed is installed installed in approximately 3 hours. This brand new 12x20 Grand Victorian with vinyl shakes siding is covered by our 30-year warranty and will provide a lifetime of use... Note that delivery and installation is included in all Reeds Ferry® pricing.

Recent Customer Reviews
Awesome quality sheds and great customer service! I recently bought a Reeds Ferry shed and have been extremely happy with it. If I ever need a new shed again it will be a Reeds Ferry.
Our Reeds Ferry shed is good quality and it adds beauty to our yard. The staff who built the shed was great and did a fabulous job. I recommend Reeds Ferry sheds.
Just had my new Reeds Ferry shed delivered. Worth every penny. You might find a less expensive shed but trust me, it won't be as good as a Reeds Ferry Shed. Plus a 30 year warranty!
From start to finish, Reeds Ferry was a pleasure to work with. The install crew on Truck #10 were very professional. I highly recommend Reeds Ferry Sheds for both quality and service.
No one else matched Reeds Ferry's quality or reputation, and after experiencing their customer service and the caliber of their installation team, it's hard to imagine any other shed being superior.
