Historic Craftsman Bathroom Addition
The owners of this property visited G. Christianson Construction last summer after purchasing this 1915 Bungalow in Corvallis (near the Public Library). The problem: The house only had one bathroom. The solution: Add a 5′ by 14′ addition off the Master Bathroom.
Superintendent Steve Schoonover, who has been part of the G. Christianson team for 23 years, was just the person for the job. Steve passionately restores historic homes, and had worked on this house about eight years ago when G. Christianson restored the kitchen and front deck to it’s former glory. The previous owner kept a detailed book of restorations, which she passed to the new owners, which brought them to us.
Designer Sue Rutherford created a dream, our craftsmen went to work building the addition to match the home exactly. Then we hired one of the best tile masons in town to install the shower, wainscotting and floor tile. The tile work stayed true to the flair of the existing bathroom, with white subway tile, black pinstripes with diamond accents, and white grout.
The result: A 70 square foot spectacular Master Bathroom addition with 1915 glamour and modern amenities. The bathroom boasts a Moen Wynford shower head, American Standard faucet, Toto Carusoe toilet, custom white painted cabinetry, a custom built medicine cabinet, Corian countertops, Simpson Fir F55 door, Emtek Quincy plate with a Providence door knob, Velux skylight, and a Marvin Ultimate double hung window in Wineberry color.
The homeowners love their new bathroom, it is everything they wanted and more!
The praise we received from all of the neighbors is that this addition fits seamlessly with the home’s original look, this is exactly what we intended.
