Screened Porch with Trex decking

Outdoor Living: A bright screened porch

Sandi and Roger met with us to rebuild their deck in two phases. First we designed and built the Trex deck. The following year we framed the porch, re-roofed the back of their home, installed skylights, painted, and last installed screens. Roger and Sandi are thrilled about our workmanship, attention to detail, and they love to show off their new outdoor living room.

“Everyone on the project was a pleasure to work with and we recommend them highly.”

Project Details

Up for the challenge

They asked us to build around their lilac bushes, so we designed a covered porch with “clipped corners.” This created a challenge because it is nearly impossible to frame an exposed beam, vaulted ceiling with clipped corners with wood rafters. We brought in our structural engineer and worked with him to engineer a “flitch” beam, which consists of a 3/16-in. steel plate sandwiched between 2×8 roughsawn rafters.

What our Clients are Saying

“..It's apparent when you work with them that they are interested in building long term relationships, not just making money on one particular job...”

Kate & Kevin Day, Corvallis

“... I appreciated their high level of professionalism, even perfection at times in different aspects of the project. I love my new bathroom!”

“My experience with them was top notch. They're conscientious. Christianson himself, who runs the show, doesn't just turn his workers loose and then pick the check up at the end of the month. He is involved in the process. He's also very personable.”

Niels Nielsen, Peoria Road
