Reeds Ferry Invades England

Reeds Ferry Sheds is now officially represented across the pond. A British customer recently put one of our sheds in a crate and had it shipped to his home at Frinton-on-Sea in Essex County England.  (Fittingly he chose our “American Classic” style.)

Below is a photo of his new Reeds Ferry Shed in his backyard. You can tell it was really taken in England because the sky is dark gray 😉  But also the surrounding architecture gives you a clue it’s Old England rather than New England.  (You just don’t see a lot of multiple angled hip-roofs with mini castle turrets in Peabody Mass.)

Folks in England absolutely love sheds. Even people who have no room for one-have one. So why would an Englishman need to order a shed from the Colonies? Our customer explained that he liked the look and construction of ours better than the ones available in the motherland. He may have a point.

To be quite frank the sheds found in England tend to be somewhat “shabby chic”. (See below).  Many look like they were built using spare kindling wood. You can almost imagine if a piece of wood falls off a dump truck in England their first thought would be “let’s nail it to the shed”.  This is not an insult!  After all, Reeds Ferry sheds have far less charm because we actually build ours using all the necessary pieces 😉  In fact we may join the Brits and come out with our own “English” style. You’ll be allowed to paint it clashing colours and nail random things to it!  Perhaps here in the States it’s a style that won’t fly, but like our favorite Englishman Winston Churchill once said, “A kite rises highest against the wind -not with it.”   –The Shed Ferry
