Tudor Style Sorority Remodel

Preserve the past, make room for the future

Kappa Kappa Gamma came to us shortly before the OSU summer break with some severe siding issues. Upon inspection, we could see that the siding was failing, the membrane roofs were leaking, and some gutters were failing. We made some room in our busy summer schedule to address the critical issues so the students could move back into a safe building in fall. Over the winter, we designed a new breakfast kitchenette and changed some of the interior layout. The new space has a nicer flow, is easier to use, and accommodates their guests much better. We also installed an ADA bathroom. At the same time as the interior work was being done, we completely stripped the exterior siding and membrane roofing. This offered a great opportunity to insulate the walls of the building. Then we added modern housewrap, flashing, siding and paint. We also cleaned and resealed the brick.

Project Details

GCCI Cabinetry

These durable, commercial grade cabinets were built in G. Christianson Construction's custom cabinet shop. By managing every step of this project, we were able to build, finish, and install custom cabinetry in under one month. This tight schedule was necessary to allow time for the other phases of the project. Our projects for fraternities, sororities and other university housing all have to be finished over the three month OSU summer break.

Resilient Quartz Countertops

These budget quartz countertops are just as stain resistant, durable and cleanable as name brand products. Undercabinet lighting makes for an excellent work space.

History Preserved

The original siding on this sorority was rotten and failing. Our philosophy was to emphasize the historic nature of a building without sacrificing durability. Using modern, waterproof materials like James Hardie Panel Siding, and Boral trim, we re-created the original facade with siding that will last a lifetime.

“Throughout the project, Sarah did an incredible job of listening to our vision and guided our decisions with her extensive design experience. G. Christianson consistently provided excellent materials, work, communication, and, moreover, they became our friends throughout the process. They used only superior quality products throughout our home, made sure all systems and structures throughout were constructed to meet or exceed code standards, and took the initiative to provide superior construction techniques even where it wouldn't show. The custom cabinetry and carpentry throughout is top quality and beautiful. The result is exactly the dream home we've always wanted! Sarah, Tanner, and the GCC team created a gorgeous, comfortable space where our family can grow for decades. It was an incredible two-year experience with the GCC family.”
