In Season 37 of This Old House, Host Kevin O’Connor and the programs long-time General Contractor Tom Silva work with Reeds Ferry to create an outdoor living space for a home in Arlington Massachusetts. Homeowner Emily Deldon wanted an enclosed space for a yoga studio. Emily and her husband Nick determined a custom Reeds Ferry Shed was the perfect solution. Watch the video below.

The focus this season was the renovation of the Deldon’s century-old Arts & Crafts style home built in 1909. Reeds Ferry’s goal was to match the look and craftsmanship of house. The end-result is a 14×20 studio-shed with cedar shingle siding, 15-lite French doors, and an extended portico supported on columns. All of these features mimic the style of the Deldon’s house and achieved the goal of a matched building pair. The studio-shed has a finished interior with climate-control, plenty of open floor space, plus added space in the loft above the portico, (which is a perfect spot for storing yoga mats, come to find out). Below is a photo of the finished studio-shed.
