Reeds Ferry 2016 Shed-of-the-Year

Congratulations to Gail and Don York of Bedford NH. The York’s are winners of the 2016 Reeds Ferry Shed of the Year Contest. It was an extremely close race again this year. With over 2,800 votes cast by Reeds Facebook fans the York’s won by 50 votes over first runner-up, the Milsky’s from Wakefield MA. The top two finishers were separated by only 2% of the vote.

Without question both photos were worthy of the top prize, but as 2016 taught us, even if the margin of victory is small, the outcome of an election can only have 1 winner. Yet we’re happy to report all of the contestants were great sports. The election took place with very little acrimony; even the protest that closed down Route 93 lasted less than 30 minutes. 😉

The York’s photo (below) featured their custom pool house set near their inviting backyard pool, complete with rock-slide. As with most Shed-of-the-Year winners, the total setting was equally appealing as the building itself. In their photo the sun, blue water, and flowers gave the feeling of a Caribbean oasis…worthy of 1,200+ fan votes.

York Family of Bedford NH -The 2016 Shed-of-the Year

The Milsky’s of Wakefield also have more than a shed. They used the shed to create a backyard social and recreation center. The shed is wired for cable and they’re able to watch the game by the fire-pit. On the inside (below right) is their neighborhood ping-pong tourney stadium, and the kids use the carpeted loft as their secret hide-away… An impressive backyard, confirmed by 1,146 votes.

1st Runner-up, the Milsky Family of Wakefield MA

The Anslem family finished 3rd with their custom Gambrel shed converted to a very cool pool bar, (left).  The Gagnon’s are the 3rd runner-up with their “classic backyard shed scene” (center). And the McCaffrey’s are the 5th finalist of the 23 total entries with their garage on a custom-built foundation, (right). Congratulations to all the 2016 finalist!


$500 is awarded to the York family. All the other finalist receive consolation prizes, including Bruins and Celtics tickets, dinner at Cafe Escadrille, etc… If for any reason the York’s are unable to fulfill the duties of their crown the Milsky family, as First Runner-up, will take on the “duties” expected of shed royalty, (although we can’t think of what those duties are). Thank you to everyone who voted and THANK YOU to the participants of the 2016 Reeds Ferry Shed of the Year Contest!

NOTE: To enter the 2017 contest, upload your Reeds Ferry Shed photo to our Facebook page with the words “enter me in the contest”.  There’s “greatness in you”, and there could also be greatness in your shed.

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.
