If Darren Sharper wasn't locked up on rape charges, he'd be pretty pumped right now -- 'cause he recently won a $178k lawsuit in a war over a crappy remodeling job on his FL condo ... TMZ Sports has learned.
Sharper had sued a Florida construction company, along with an interior designer, that botched a very expensive construction job at the former NFL star's swanky condo.
Sharper's Florida attorney, Michael Simon, tells us ... "There was work that wasn't done properly. There was work that wasn't completed. We went to court to get Darren's money back."
In the end, the judge sided with Sharper -- and ordered the companies to pay up.
