Asian Themed Mid-Century Remodel

Asain Themed Mid-Century Remodel

In this project, we completely demolished the existing family, dining, and living room down to the foundation. We modified the foundation to enlarge the spaces and make it more livable. The duct work below the floor was upgraded. We framed new (thicker) walls, installed fiberglass BIBS (blown-in blanket system) insulation in the walls and ceiling. The owner liked the look of modern materials, so Paralam beams were used for headers and structural members. We created custom, clear vertical grain fir cabinets. The position of the entry door was relocated and numerous upgrades were made to the home during construction. We remodeled the kitchen, the main entrance to the house, and the upstairs bedroom suite as well.

“I’ve had major renovations done on four houses, including a 100 year old 3-story townhouse in Chicago, this has been by far the best and smoothest remodel experience in my life”

Project Details

Ipe Hardwood Flooring

The floors, decks and some exterior window trim are Ipe hardwood. This is a tropical hardwood that is sustainably harvested. It takes a skilled and experienced carpenter to successfully install this extremely hard and durable product.

Aging In Place

This dishwasher was raised for ease of use. We have extensive knowledge and experience working with clients who want to remain in their home comfortably for years to come, as well as clients with disabilities.

Copper Rain Chain

Instead of standard downspouts, we installed a hammered copper cup rain chain. A note of caution: in rainy, blustery Corvallis, some may regret this choice since water splashes well beyond the chain.

Fire charred pantry

To create a unique look, we torched the wood doors of the cabinets, then wirebushed loose char off, before sealing the cabinets with lacquer. Please ask us about custom touches for your project.

What our Clients are Saying

“Bill and Tammy were very happy with our work on their home in Corvallis, so when they bought their home in Philomath, they asked us to create a special Guest Suite for them.”

“My Mom and Dad wanted the business legacy to grow beyond their dining room table, so they created a beautiful space downtown to allow G. Christianson Construction to thrive.”
