Testimonials

Homes By Design Sydney
Just a short message to thank you for all your hard work and great negotiation skills in getting our Garage project through Pittwater Council. The first reply from council was a rejection of our proposed garage due to a strong neighbour objection, your negotiation skills, patient and calm personality eventually got it through.

We are also very impressed with the high level of detail you have put into all the drawings, I'm sure this also played a great part in getting the DA.

Thanks again, if we will be building  again we will definitely be contacting you.

We asked Rex to interpret our brief with a strong respect for our home’s 1960s “Rose Seidler” inspired modernist theme, whilst providing improved access, comfort and liveability plus an enhanced outdoor entertaining space.

We are thrilled with the quality of our final result. Rex has maintained contact throughout the entire project; he has consulted on our behalf and provided valuable input on many aspects throughout the project.

We have no hesitation in recommending Rex and his business Homes by Design to any future clients who may be considering engaging his services.

I have had the pleasure of working collaboratively with Rex Farr on a variety of residential projects for the last 2 years. These projects have mostly been large, complicated, upmarket houses on difficult sites, and Rex has produced high quality, accurate, DA and CC drawings in every instance.

He has also measured and drawn several existing houses with the same excellent results.

On most projects he has liaised with many other consultants and provided them with CAD drawings to suit their needs.

I have no hesitation in giving Rex the highest possible praise for his professional and conscientious approach to all the work we do together.

Rex was given the task of measuring, documenting and gaining DA and CC approval for alterations and additions to our unusual home in St Ives.

Our steep and rocky bushland site was heavily constrained by poor access, bushfire, a lack of stormwater easement and in excess of seventy trees, one of which was listed with Ku-ring-gai council for special protection.

Rex coordinated all consultant documentation required by council and successfully negotiated our proposal through a complex DA process.

He also assisted by investigating several construction scenario’s including the possible staging of our works whilst providing several high quality builders for our consideration.

After some deliberation we elected to proceed as owner builders with Rex assisting with the preparation and submission of all required documentation.

We also found Rex to be very easy to contact, Rex always made himself available to discuss our ideas and advise us on what was possible, feasible, and sensible, without the feeling the clock was ticking. Great service, something that is hard to find these days.


My wife and I would like to thank and recommend Rex Farr from Homes by Design

I have worked closely with Rex Farr on numerous building projects over a period of many years. Throughout that time Rex has shown an acute attention to detail and is quick to grasp sometimes difficult concepts and adapt his designs to suit.

Through Rex’s flexibility and understanding I have seen him save his clients tens of thousands of dollars and untold heartaches.

I have recommended Rex to my clients in the past and will continue to do so in the future.
