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.

What our Clients are Saying

“...There was careful oversight from the project manager throughout. I would highly recommend this team for any construction needs.”

Carol & Paul Adamus, Corvallis

“I can honestly say that I wouldn't have the kitchen that I love if it weren't for Carl! His attention to details made a huge difference, he would notice things that I hadn't even noticed. They do great work and they are good people, from Carl and the office staff to all the crew.”

Mary & Kory Jackson, Corvallis

“The Arc of Benton County used G. Christianson's services for an addition to our thrift store in Philomath. Tanner was our contractor. His attention to detail, preference for quality materials and systems, eco-friendly emphasis and personal contact set the company above its competitors. I would give 4 and three-quarter stars if I could, only subtracting a quarter star because we ended up waiting a long time for a door knob after we were using the space. I like the online messaging platform they use and the schedule Tanner gave us in advance. Construction is generally expensive these days, but G. Christianson was priced fairly for the quality they deliver. Tanner worked with me on some change orders to refine our actual needs in process. I definitely recommend working with them for a stress-free, predictable, and top-quality experience. The addition looks like it has always been there and meets all of our needs. Thank you, Tanner and G. Christianson Construction!”
