When is a Reeds Ferry Shed, not a shed?

Reeds Ferry Sheds are built like a house. Heavy-duty floor joists, thick sub floor, 2×4 framing studs 16″ on-center,  2×6 roof trusses with exterior grade plywood sheathing… It’s the same design specs used to build a house — and with a little additional work some of our customers have converted our shed from a storage unit into added living space for the family unit.

The Reeds Ferry 2013 Shed-of-the-Year winner is a good example. Peter and Pat Eggimann of Groton MA converted their Reeds Grand Victorian into a detached family room. (some might call it a “man-cave”, but Pete assures us all genders are welcome.) Looking at the photos below you’d think it was the interior of a fine home.

The Eggimann’s retreat has built in-wall 7.1 surround sound speakers, a 65″ LCD TV, phone, cable, internet, wireless, internet security cameras with alarm, internet controlled outlets and exterior lights, a beautiful engineered hardwood floor, power reclining leather sofas… and a mini bar with beer & soda fridge… Very nice.

According to Mr. Eggimann the conversion was an after thought, “The shed started out as a place to store garden tools and lawn mowers, but when we saw it fully built we realized it had greater potential. Now it’s a place where neighbors, friends and family hang out. We’ve used it as our personal movie theater; enjoyed watching the Red Sox win the World Series, even gathered there to toast our god-daughter’s engagement.” — Reeds Ferry provided the framework and the Eggimann’s added their creative vision.

adamsAnother finalist in the Shed-of-the-Year contest also upgraded their interior. Jason Adams from Hooksett NH has a 2-story Reeds Ferry Gambrel. He turned the first floor into a backyard clubhouse. You really could send out-of-town guests to live in the backyard and they’d be perfectly comfortable. A beautiful job by Mr and Mrs Adams on this layout.

Here’s a video of the construction on the Adams Gambrel.

A Reeds Ferry building is a great idea for folks that want to expand their living space without disturbing their current space. Call Reeds Ferry and talk to our “Specialty Buildings” team.

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.
