Omnibus Designs creates elegant design solutions for the construction of new homes, additions and remodeling projects.
I work directly with you and your contractors to create the most efficient and affordable designs you need to construct your house or addition. I provide the construction documents you need for building permits, contractors to provide estimates and suppliers to provide price quotes.
MY SERVICE OFFERS THE FOLLOWING FEATURES:
- Creative designs – help you find that place where ‘wish list’ meets affordability.
- Design solutions for additions – seamlessly integrate your new living space with your existing building.
- Green building – provide a focus on energy efficiency and green materials for a fuel-saving, toxic-free living space.
- Responsiveness to the site – we look for the most advantageous location and orientation of the building in relation to landscape, sunlight, and views.
- Attention to detail – you’ve seen an ‘appliance garage’ in the kitchen, how about a ‘phone garage’ with multiple outlets and phone jacks for charging a family of cell phones?
- Accurate construction documents – minimize contractor ‘head scratching’. It’s all on the plan, less time lost on your construction schedule, more savings for you.
- Space planning – maximize your square foot dollars with ideas that efficiently utilize all the room you have to work with, create interesting features from unexpected places.
“Charles was the designer and project manager for a major home renovation project for us. He managed to bring it in on time and on budget while being responsive to our sometimes unorthodox ideas. He is easy to work with, manages other people well, and is very knowledgeable. We love it and continue to marvel at both big and little details he thought of and implemented. Highly recommended.”
I designed and built a new garage addition, garage & kitchen remodel, sun room addition for Mai-lan and her husband Hendrick to their home in Wayland MA. Summer 2010
“Excellent. Charles is fantastic, a pleasure to work with, and very talented. Just right for a complicated renovation. Quick turn-arounds, flexible, not a prima donna, reasonable, hard working, creative, real. I would recommend him highly. ”
