We have had the pleasure of working with GMT Home Designs Inc. for over five years. The whole team at GMT has creativity flowing through their veins! GMT is able to take the picture in your head and put it on paper to create the home you've always dreamed about. The designs are timeless and it is easy to work with the team if any alterations are needed. There are many reasons we value our professional relationship with GMT Home Designs and we without a doubt have full faith that this team can give you exactly what you have always wished for.
We returned home from vacation to find burst water pipes and half of our home destroyed by water! We needed trustworthy and experienced design help right away to get our unplanned renovation underway. Glenn and his talented team were the perfect choice for us as they came through with timely, creative, meticulous and charming design for our home. We felt listened to and then inspired with a design that took our wishes way beyond what we could have visualized without their professional and skilled eyes. As we saw our project unfolding it was so rewarding to know we had turned to the right company. We are making plans to partner with Glenn and GMT again on another project. Thankfully, this time it is a planned endeavor!
I would highly recommend GMT Home Designs Inc. with pleasure and without reservation.
GMT did a great job explaining the design process for our new master bath and closet area. Their presentation was tremendously helpful in allowing us to visualize our new space; our few requested changes were made easily. GMT set the stage well for our project that has come in both schedule and budget wise as stated. The design-build relationship between GMT and Encore Construction was a smooth one. We are extremely happy with the project process.
We had the pleasure of working with GMT Home Designs for our addition that is currently underway. The design they created is terrific and the addition connects to the existing house seamlessly. We have received numerous compliments already and give all the credit to the architects! The process was wonderful as well, they were very responsive and easy to work with. Seeing the design on the large screen in their office and virtually walking through the rooms was incredibly helpful. We could not have done this without GMT's expertise & truly appreciate their attention to detail! I would highly recommend GMT Home Designs!
I highly recommend working with Glenn and his team for a project of any size. We just completed our third project designed by his team and could not be happier with the level of knowledge, diligence, communication and overall understanding of our needs.
On this most recent project, Glenn was able to create a design for a new addition that looks like it was always part of the original design of the house. Glenn met with us multiple times before the project began to ensure he understood our needs and our vision for the new space. He provided 3D images and a virtual tour that gave us insight into how the rooms would flow and a perspective on how each room could ultimately be furnished. He and his team also met with us during the construction period and were open to discussing possible changes to the original design that might enhance the functionality of certain spaces. Glenn and Felipe were always focused on our needs and ensuring the design would be appealing.
If you are planning on a new addition or even a new house, you should consider calling GMT Home Designs. I am sure you will be pleased!
GMT Home Designs is a talented, professional, responsive design firm. They have been a partner on our team of associates since 2004. Together, we help clients understand their project using 3D color images and virtual walking tours. The technology allows clients to participate in designing their project wherever they want input. This approach has value for everyone involved, for projects large and small, as a great communication tool and as a way to expedite design decisions. The technology in combination with GMT's capable staff is a powerful and effective way to overcome project design challenges.
Wow, Glenn really nailed it !! This is exactly how we envisioned the portico - the overall scale, that the roof slopes sufficiently but still fits in the space, the curve of the arch, how it will look with new shutters and a new door - everything.
We first looked at it together and Patty right away said "this is perfect". Sure, this was probably easier than either the front or back porch plans, but we honestly don't have any additional suggestions or any thoughts on alternate ideas at this point. This is just what we wanted, period.
I highly recommend working with Glenn at GMT Home Designs for several specific reasons. First, he is experienced and does great work. Second, he has shown himself to be exceptionally trustworthy - he will do what he says he's going to do. Third, he is extremely conscientious about details, while still being easy to work with. And lastly, he communicates well and consistently. House projects can be stressful and these qualities make the project much more like it should be - fun and exciting - because you know what is going on and you know that you are working with someone who wants a great outcome as much as you do.
Glenn has a strong team. The experience working with everyone in the company is consistently high quality. It's great to have an enjoyable process but at the end of the day what matters is the quality of the work, the ingenuity of the design, and the way GMT listens to how you live and gives you more than you expected.
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.
