Glenn and his staff were able pick up with our project (a halfway built commercial building). Under a tight timeline he was able to deliver in a timely manner. He was exceptionally professional and worked seamlessly with the contractor and others involved with the project.
Glenn Travis of GMT Home Designs was able to take the vision we had for remodeling our home on Cape Cod and make that vision a reality. Everyone involved with the project from Glenn to Encore Construction to the sub-contractors were wonderful to work with and the final product exceeded our original expectations.
I would like to strongly recommend the services of GMT Home Designs, Inc. for any residential construction / remodeling projects you may have.
My wife and I recently worked with Glenn Travis to design our new home. Glenn helped to make what could have been an exhausting process into a pleasurable experience. From the options of conceptual designs, through the final construction drawings, Glenn added value to our project.
Glenn was able to translate our rough napkin sketches, bulleted email lists, and design meeting notes into a complete set of buildable plans. He is very keen on subtle design changes, and offered very valuable suggestions to improve designs aesthetics, create improved construction details, and make for an overall better finished product.
The final set of construction drawings was extremely thorough. These drawings and their level of detail took away any uncertainty during the budgeting process. Ultimately, by removing any doubt from the scope of work via such details, the sub contractors and material suppliers were able to provide exact pricing, and then honor their original proposals.
"I had the pleasure of collaborating with Glenn (President of GMT Home Designs, Inc.) on my residence remodel/reconstruction project. The quality and craftsmanship was exemplarily! What was truly amazing was Glenn's ability to take my vision and rudimentary plans and complete architectural renderings that precisely, without exception, encompassed that vision. Not one change was made to GMT's first detailed drawings. The project was complex; however, the design, flow and advise rendered, contribute to a home I will undoubtedly be proud of for many years to come."
Glenn always keeps the best interests of his customer in mind. His honesty, integrity and work ethic is unparalleled in the design/build industry. Knowing that his projects finish on time and within budget gives his customers a great sense of security. I would always recommend Glen to anyone I know in need of his service.
From the beginning, Glenn helped us craft a vision for our renovation. He listened to our needs and worked with us to create a design that both met our needs and is aesthetically pleasing. His tools enabled us to envision what the space would look like through various iterations as we together built a vision for the house. Through the process, Glenn was creative, thorough, and always responsive to our needs. His final work product--the plans are highly professional and extremely detailed (leaving nothing out as Glenn anticipated the needs of the town inspectors)--so much so that our permitting process was seamless. Our town, known for their strict codes and delays, approved the plans in record time with virtually no questions. Our builder has his blueprint and now we are watching as our dream addition is being built.
Glenn has been a pleasure to work with on our addition project. Right from the start, he sought to ensure that as much as possible, our needs and desires would be incorporated in the design. We appreciate how he was attentive to the details. His final design was practical, incorporating all the space requirements, as well esthetically pleasing with details like skylights and raised ceilings. In addition, he was very easy to work with - reliable, attentive and accommodating. Finally, we commend him for being proactive in establishing a relationship with the conservation commission in our town, knowing that we would need their permission to do the work on our house. He has been with us every step of the way to take our project from concept to reality.
I am writing to thank you for your superb design for our home addition. We are very happy with our "New Home". I mostly appreciate your attentiveness to our needs and taking into consideration the best of all possibilities. You have added an extra touch in putting in French doors that gave a very warm look to our cape home, which was beyond our expectation.
Lots of neighbors continue to comment on how our house looks very classy with the new addition/remodel without loosing the trend of neighboring homes. You have an eye for class and an elegant look for design without compromising the practicality of every day living.
I also appreciated the excellence of your work in your presentation of the end product. I waited eagerly and have the beautiful vision of the designed home come to reality in front of my eyes.
Thank you for everything. We are very fortunate to have worked with you in this special time of our lives.
It was a pleasure to work with Glenn! He guided us through the whole process. The end result was a combined image of our thoughts and ideas that you could actually see before implementing. Even the builders commented that it made their job that much easier! Thanks Glen!
Glenn was great to work with from the start. He was reliable in getting his part of the work done in a timely fashion, and he was pleasant and personable. We were most impressed, though, by his design. We gave him a description/list of what we most wanted and needed in our addition. We were baffled how to arrange the new space to accommodate all of our requests: full bathroom, large common area (family room), lots of natural lighting, and an open feeling between our old living/dining area and the new addition. Glenn came up with a perfect design that completely fit our description. What's more, he designed the outside with such “curb appeal” (as he called it) that you can't even tell we added onto our house. We have had numerous people comment that they can't tell the difference between the old part and the new part of our house when they have driven by. We are proud to say that we had a great architect design our addition!
After seeing the results of Glenn’s work in designing an addition for our son’s home in Framingham, we engaged Glenn in late 2001 to design the rebuilding of our cottage in Duxbury.
The project has been complex with many local boards and regulations to satisfy but throughout the several year process Glenn’s professionalism, patience, and attention to detail have been instrumental in gaining approval to proceed. On several occasions our builder has commented favorably on the completeness and accuracy of his plans.
We are pleased to recommend Glenn Travis and are confident that his business will grow and prosper over the years.
