I was the Development Manager for the Bellamack subdivision from 2011 to 2013. The Red Shed's was contracted by Bellamack to undertake the design review process of the implementation of its design guidelines under the Bellamack sales covenant. The system the Red Shed implemented at Bellamack took a time consuming, thankless task and turned it into an efficient, cost effective system that delivered a high quality built form outcome across the subdivision that ultimately supported the sale of successive stages of development. I found Darron and his team to be efficient, professional and always willing to assist and make themselves available to support my role as Development Manage with regards to trouble shooting, running interference with builders and providing clear reports for internal reporting and for compliance with Government Development Agreement requirements. The Red Shed team is knowledgeable in all areas of building design, was able to independently resolve issues by offering constructive advice regarding the Bellamack design guidelines and willing to go the extra mile to help steer landowners, designers and builders through the design approval process, which could at times appear onerous to inexperienced applicants.
I worked as Investa's Senior Development Manager for Breezes Muirhead in Darwin from the start-up of the development until 2015. We worked closely with Darron Lyons at The Red Shed, who managed the Design Review role for the development. Darron was professional, easy to work with, and had the skills and experience necessary to fulfil the requirements of this busy role and I felt at ease knowing he had a firm handle of the tasks involved. I felt confident in his abilities, and felt his experience as a building designer for many years in Darwin gave him the knowledge required to help provide fast and effective ideas to help owners and builders achieve design solutions that met the requirements of the guidelines. I would recommend Darron and his team as strong and reliable in this area of developments and would recommend anyone considering using them for this purpose.
When we purchased 78 Cullen Bay Crescent, Larrakeyah in 2012 we loved the general area as well as the specific location of the house, however the house itself wasn’t ideally designed for a ‘fairly’ young and growing family. We now have two very energetic young boys who love the Outdoors and our primary motivation for the Renovations was to create an environment where our house was the neighbourhood “fun” house, one that the boys would always want to be around and therefore safe. This Renovation has also ensured that all our entertaining areas (Outdoor and Indoor) are exceptionally designed, fitted out, practical, usable and above all, easily maintained (as we travel frequently). The entertaining areas have already been ‘tested’ on numerous occasions with the most demanding of clientele (our friends) and have stood true. - Michael We created a number of entertaining spaces so that depending on the number of guests, the mood of the occasion and the weather we would always have the perfect spot. Our view is that this was achieved beyond our expectations. Additionally we are pleased we've been able to incorporate landscaping into the design in terms of the planter box covering the waterslide and planter boxes down both sides of the stairs. Overall we were inspired by the lava stone used in our kitchen and have taken this colour palette as the theme to create a wow factor outside. - Vicki
We were in the process of building a new house and wanted someone to design our dream home. We were referred to the Red Shed from other satisfied clients and from reputation of their business. We wanted to build our dream home that was able fall within our tight budget and the Red Shed was able to meet that requirement. Building at Lyons has strict guidelines and Darron was able to design our house to comply with these. Being fussy clients, we wanted our house designed to every fine detail. Darron listened to our needs and was able to come up with innovative ideas and designs to satisfy our requirements. The Red Shed has the latest drafting technology software in designing our house, which gave us a live walk through of the completed project. Darron was able to solve our problems without a fuss and promptly, nothing was too hard and he kept our dream alive. Darron was flexible with his working hours to see us with our busy demanding working schedule. Darron has an excellent work ethic and takes pride with his work. He provides an exceptional service to us and always returned our phone calls promptly. I would not hesitate in recommending potential clients to the Red Shed based on business reputation, referral and repeated business from clients and client satisfaction.
Darron knows how to create a spacious tropical home with a modern feel suited to our lifestyle. We had complete confidence in his ability to design our home and he listened to what we wanted.
