Artist’s Retreat

Artist's Retreat

The homeowners love the Pacific Northwest forest feel of their location and wanted to bring those elements into their Kitchen. We removed their peninsula-style Kitchen and completely transformed the look, function and size. The full-height backsplash tile is a clean look that brings in color and frames the view out of the windows. We also transformed the unfinished shed into an art studio, providing a functional retreat for the homeowners.

Project Details

Maximum Storage

Our designer adapted the kitchen design to the existing window locations and placed lower cabinets below the larger window to increase the counters and storage space.

Corner Pull-out

In order to solve the problem of unused corner cabinet space, we often install a Kessebohmer LeMans storage organizer. This cabinet organizer swings the contents out in front for ease of access. We also installed a large window behind the sink to maximize daylight and take advantage of the view of the tranquil landscape.

Art Studio

We converted the existing shed into a fully heated, insulated, functional art studio. Barn doors were replaced with beautiful French doors, creating a more accessible entrance. The rafters were painted blue to match the floor, creating a cohesive look.

What our Clients are Saying

“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. ”

“My kitchen looks lovely, thank you for the professional job.”

Esther McEvoy, Corvallis

“The client greatly appreciated the clear and detailed estimate and the professionalism shown in it. In addition, the inclusion of a project completion timeline, and one that seems reasonably rapid, was well received by the client. While your proposal was higher than the other bid received, the thoroughness and items mentioned above, provided the client with confidence that there is a reasonable reason for the higher price. The clients are seriously considering your bid as they see a lot of benefits to working with a company of your size, experience, and thoroughness.”
