Let's Talk.

During this phase we'll get acquainted to see if we are a fit for each other, diving deep into your vision and making sure that we "get it." We'll talk schedule, your role in the project and what you can expect from us. We'll be unfailingly honest - telling you what will be fun - and what won't. And we'll leave you with a complete guidance kit full of useful information to help you understand not only who we are but also how projects like yours works.

The Professional Services Agreement

Prior to entering into a Construction Agreement there will be a Professional Services Agreement (PSA). This usually includes costs for a detailed estimate that assures you a quality, completed project at a guaranteed price. The PSA will usually cover design services and sometimes demolition and discovery work if required to create a guaranteed project price for you. The PSA does not obligate you to enter into a Construction Agreement with us and you own the result of the design work covered by the PSA.

Project Development

With all or most of the results of the PSA work in hand we will meet with you to talk through the project. We will take all the time you want to be comfortable and confident. We'll go over the scope of work, project plan, progress payments, timelines, logistics and concerns. You will meet your personal project manager and discuss how communications can be handled.

Cabinetry, If Relevant

With our in-house cabinet shop, custom cabinetry is an easy piece of your project, if relevant. Our cabinet shop team is involved in the design process, working with our designers to help you achieve cabinets that not only look beautiful but function efficiently. We can provide samples of any species or lacquer color you are interested in. Because Ron, who is our cabinet shop foreman, is on our team, he is readily available to personally look at your project, answer any questions, or attend any design meetings as he sees fit, and changes within cabinetry are easy to communicate.

The Construction Agreement

We will now have all the information to provide a guaranteed price for your project, you will have signed off on the design and production plan. You've met your project manager and know who will be doing what to whom. We will provide an Agreement for our mutual signatures. We will go over and explain every deal of our straightforward Agreement.

Project Management

During the building phase we will handle all the details of ordering materials, scheduling, oversite and coordination. Concurrently we will diligently keep you up to date on progress and issues. If you'd like, we can give you access to our Co-Construct portal. On Co-Construct you can see daily progress photos, schedule updates, payment information, and contract details. Our clients love how communication is efficient and organized by topic. You can use it on your computer or download the mobile app. This is great for our long distance clients!

In-Process Changes

No matter how carefully we plan your project together you will probably want to make some changes along the way, we are prepared to cheerfully accommodate any changes you want to make. Our Agreement will explain how costs associated with your changes will be handled.

Project Completion & Warranty

During this completion phase we will meticulously inspect to ensure that craftsmanship level have been maintained throughout the project. We will do a final review meeting with you to answer any operational questions. We'll do a final clean up to the highest standards possible both within the project and anything on the property that we touched. We will set up with a document for you to list anything you might run across that wasn't done right. And finally you will benefit from our industry leading ten-year warranty on our work, which will be indicated by our warranty document and a sticker placed on your electrical panel.

What our Clients are Saying

“Our 30-year-old bathroom was in dire need of a major makeover. We envisioned a spa-like retreat…a place for calm relaxation and recharging. We had a general idea of a direction but needed help with all the details. Designer Anna Clink, with her eye for exquisite detail, supplied the focus and kept me from going overboard. The workmen on the crew were all talented craftsmen who daily showed their enthusiasm for the project through their care and input. This was a true collaboration. The result speaks for itself. You know you are on a good team when the finished product exceeds everyone’s expectations. ”

“We asked Christianson to design and build an entertainment center, a built in bookshelf and a built in desk and credenza. Designer Elizabeth captured our concept and turned it into a beautiful design plan. Ron at the cabinet shop came up with ideas for materials we would have never thought of. All the guys in the cabinet shop got excited about our project and we could tell we were in the hands of skilled craftsman. Jon kept us informed of the timing of construction throughout the project. They truly customized the space and the overall product exceeded our expectations.”

“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.”
