Our Locations and Their Franchise Owners


Over the years, Aaron has worked across the globe in various fields like commercial diving and military, but he has found his true passion by starting The Shed Specialists Co.

"The business is built around the ethos that 'Your Shed is Our Reputation', and this is the core foundation of the service that we provide to every customer", - Aaron says. 

During his time in the military, being a supervisor on oil rigs and leading dive teams worldwide, Aaron worked with people of diverse cultural backgrounds. From this experience, Aaron has learned how to listen and make everyone he deals with feel valued, whether it's a customer or a team member.

Aaron is a big believer in supporting his team and leading by example, so he often gets out there and works with the boys on-site. Those customers who had the pleasure of getting a shed from The Shed Specialists Co. most likely saw him roll up his sleeves and participate in the building process.

Lynn and Shane were our first franchise partners. They initially looked after the Marlborough/Kaikoura area and are now in charge of Nelson/Tasman.

They are locals and became interested in the unique service that our company provides after looking for a business to run and call their own. They liked the idea of providing cost-effective but quality sheds to farmers and the local community, which they were an active part of. After some research and discussions with Aaron from The Shed Specialists Co., they decided to join the company as franchise partners and never looked back.

Lynn and Shane are very passionate about helping their clients with their projects! They have a desire and a drive to run the business as best as possible and make it successful.

West Coast

Steve and Ange bring over 40 years of collective experience within the building industry. Steve is a qualified builder, and Ange is an Interior Architect. Their journey together started in 2011 when a passion for design naturally evolved into their own various build projects, including designing and building their own family home.

Searching for land to home two converted containers in 2018 led them to the Westcoast, where they quickly fell in love with the untouched beauty and slower pace. Looking for a shared venture, the franchise offered a long-term opportunity that would support becoming part of a community and provide flexibility for personal projects and time with family. 

Since starting last year, the personable connections not only with customers but also with the breathtaking landscapes up and down the coast have been absolutely gratifying. Bringing a genuine approach and work ethic, Steve and Ange are looking forward to building a reputable business on the Westcoast.

0277803754 | Southland@shedspecialists.co.nz

Jordan is The Shed Specialists Co. franchise owner/operator for the Southland territory. He and his family are based out of Gore which is a pretty central spot for providing to the entire southland region.

Jordan's background is landscaping and horticulture, so he found a lot of transferable skills in switching over to shed building. The process of joining the company was extended with a few roadblocks in the way, but nothing that couldn't be conquered with the head office's support and Aaron's creative solutions. 

Jordan has really enjoyed being self-employed and the freedom that has come with it while having the backing of a franchise to provide support while starting a new business.
