What our Clients are Saying

“There's a couple of unique features, certainly the stairway; That's really an organizing principle when you come into the house. When you come into the house, you see the stairs and you see right out to that super view. I think taking advantage of the view, and the way it functions and flows, I'd put it up there as one of the best projects I've done.”

Neil Richardson, Architect

“G. Christianson construction made us feel heard and cared for throughout our remodeling process. We had an ADU built in our unfinished basement and there were lots of uneven walls and floors and ducting that had to be worked around plus lots of replumbing both inside and out. They did such a nice job with attention to detail at the top of the list. Their subcontractors were top-notch and on schedule. We never felt stressed out. ”

Cindy Paden, Corvallis OR

“Professional, friendly, expert, prompt and on time. We'll be working with them again!”
