Added Space with Rustic Charm

Added Space with Rustic Charm

The Family Room Addition extended the house by 12' and included a full height staked stone fireplace, a larger gathering space, and a new stairwell to the converted crawlspace. This remodel also included removing a long hallway that sectioned off the dining room from the of the house. The covered deck off the kitchen was enclosed to create a new breakfast room which features 2 skylights and many windows that take in views of the backyard. New rustic hickory flooring was installed throughout the main floor and used on the stair treads. Custom oak handrails and newel posts at both staircases were stained to match the new hickory floors. A new bonus room, bathroom and gym were created in the former crawl space, which was tall enough to accommodate these rooms without many changes to the structure.

New Basement Bonus Rooms

The home had a generous crawlspace will full standing clearance. The homeowners approached our team on way to capture it as a bonus room with an attached gym and bathroom. With two growing boys, this would be a perfect space to watch movies, play video games, play instruments and workout.

Rustic Entry Staircase

New custom-made oak handrails, stair treads, and newel posts were stained and installed by our in house finish carpenters. This upgrade to the main entry stairs adds rustic and modern touches to go along with the remodel.

Grand Fireplace

The scale of the family room addition called for a beautiful accent wall. Our Designer, Sarah, achieved this with a full height fireplace and accent paint color to contrast the stone work. The stacked stone and rustic wood mantel help this grand space feel cozy.

Wood Beam

The cream and brown stacked stone fireplace extends to the peak of the vaulted ceiling and meets a new structural beam, which was lifted into place using lots of heavy machinery. Once installed, the beam was wrapped in hickory to match the new hardwood flooring.

What our Clients are Saying

“G Christianson Construction were responsive, timely, and effective throughout the process. Our project was more challenging than most as it was the construction of a footbridge across Dixon Creek. I highly recommend Jon and his team to you!”

“G. Christianson construction made us feel heard and cared for throughout our remodeling process. We had an ADU built in our unfinished basement and there were lots of uneven walls and floors and ducting that had to be worked around plus lots of replumbing both inside and out. They did such a nice job with attention to detail at the top of the list. Their subcontractors were top-notch and on schedule. We never felt stressed out. ”
