NEWS FLASH: 2011 Shed of the Year Unveiled

Reeds Ferry 2011 Shed of the Year

Vox populi!  The people have spoken!  Judy Ashley of Ipswich MA is the proud owner the 2011 Reeds Ferry Shed of the Year. Judy takes home the $500 grand-prize. (Note: There is no trophy. We consider “the shed” itself to be the trophy, but we are still debating the separate trophy idea after our 2010 winner was injured attempting to put their shed up on the mantel.)

Judy had her attractive Victorian Cottage installed back in May. Please know that Judy isn’t like one of those mothers on Toddlers and Tiaras, but she sensed her shed was special, and possessed a spunk and charm that would shine through to the voting public and the pageant committee, so she immediately uploaded a photo of her newborn for prize consideration.  Her hunch paid off with 39% of the vote. (160 votes total)

When we told Judy she had won the $500 she said, “Aw shucks; the honor of winning the award is enough. I don’t need the $500”. We were truly impressed, but we reminded her that even the winner of the Nobel Prize accepts a cash award of over a million dollars and there was no harm in taking the money. Begrudgingly she agreed to accept the $500, and then asked if we knew how she could enter her shed for the Nobel Prize. 😉

Thanks Judy for choosing Reeds Ferry, supporting our contest, and having some fun with us. The same goes for all the finalist; everybody was a good sport. All the runner-ups will receive consolation prizes, which include great seats for a Bruins game, $100 restaurant certificates, and ski passes to Sunday River. There were no losers.

Patrick did a lot of customization on his shed. A great job. We especially like the light fixtures that frame the door. Mr Timmins has a definite eye for detail.

Reeds Ferry 2011 Shed of the Year Third Place

3rd Place – 63 Votes
The Sullivans, Wilmington MA

A well kept shed in a beautifully landscaped backyard. No joke, the Sullivan’s yard looks like “Amen Corner” at Augusta National. Reeds Ferry is very proud they chose our shed to be part of it.

Monika Andersson, Reading MA

According to her profile pic Monika just got married. Congratulations! No doubt every newlywed could use $500, but we’ll hook them up with a consolation prize that will help with the entertainment budget.

Reeds Ferry 2011 Shed of the Year Fifth Place

5th Place – 34 Votes
Robert Sparkes, Billerica MA

If you looked up “shed” in the dictionary this would be the picture. Bob chose a classic style with an unpretentious carriage. We appreciate the “classics”.

Reeds Ferry thanks all the contestants and voters in this year’s contest. Over 400 votes were cast! We were hoping for 23!  Frankly, we know a lot more about building a quality shed than we do about “social media”, but we really enjoyed this opportunity to be “social” with some of our customers; you folks are the best.

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.
