Craft Room Basement

An Organized Scrapbooking, Crafting and Hobby space

Glen and Debby came to us with a plan to convert their basement into a crafting workspace. Debby’s scrapbooking business had grown to the point that she needed room (and organization) for other people to come and learn from her. We added glass cabinets, task lighting, easy to clean marmoleum floors, expansive new windows, large countertops and a durable desk. Then we remodeled the downstairs bathroom to be bright and inviting, and replaced all of the downstairs doors and trim to match. Previous projects for Glen and Debby: Master Bathroom, Garage Addition, Living room, Fireplace, Entertainment Center, and updating their Clinic.

“The highlight of the job, “Coming in and finding the job done and done right!””

PROJECT DETAILS

New Tile Hearth over Old Brick

Slate provides a clean modern hearth, surround and and mantle for the fireplace. A new gas stove replaces the drafty wood burning fireplace to provide a comfortable space for her classes.

Custom Wood Railing

Custom wood railing showcases fine woodworking while adding a contemporary finish to the room. We replaced the dated wrought iron railings from the main floor to the basement with beautifully crafted maple newel posts, handrails with cherry wood inlays and and balusters made of amber glass

What our Clients are Saying

“We worked with G. Christianson on a pretty major kitchen remodel, and the whole project went wonderfully from start to finish. They helped us develop our vision for the new kitchen into a concrete set of plans, and they worked with us to keep the project within our budget. As construction progressed, they were communicative and responsive. We really appreciated the weekly meetings they held with us, where they updated us on their progress and consulted with us about any changes we needed to make to our original plan due to unforeseen quirks in our mid-century house. In the end, the work is solid and beautiful, and our new kitchen is a joy to cook and bake in. We really appreciated the craftsmanship, attention to detail, and deep knowledge of the whole G. Christianson team. We felt like we were in good hands the entire time we worked with them. Just as importantly, everyone we interacted with during the project was friendly and professional, from Carl, the owner, to Anna, the designer we worked with, to Ben and the G. Christianson crew, to all of the subcontractors they brought in, and everyone else. We wouldn't hesitate to work with G. Christianson again if we ever have more remodeling work to do, and we highly recommend them.”

“We are very happy with our new enclosed porch! The design and bidding process was straightforward and thorough, and all aspects of construction - pouring a new slab, framing, installing windows and fixtures, painting, etc. - were completed in a timely manner and with the high standard of quality we wanted. We especially appreciated the extra precautions taken when Covid-19 impinged on the timeline, and the thoroughness of documentation and updating from G. Christianson throughout the process.”

“G. Christianson recently completed a major kitchen and bath remodel for us. We really enjoyed working with this excellent firm from the day we walked in the door until the final sign off. Anna, Jon and Elizabeth created a design that incorporated our ideas with theirs that is wonderful. It opened up our 1980's kitchen and made it much more functional and beautiful. The cabinets that Ron, Eric and Bill built and installed are perfect for our space and the quality, fit and finish are absolutely top drawer. The construction team, Tony, Maria, Gavin, Eric, Dennis, Bill, and Cesar were outstanding. Always, courteous, professional and clean. There was never a mess left at the end of the day. Their attention to detail and quality of work from the framing to the finish work was fantastic. Similarly, the sub-contractors were excellent. Jon, did an amazing job juggling the order of work to address illnesses and other unexpected interruptions to keep the schedule on track. This was a 5 month project and it finished within a couple of weeks of the original completion date. I've done some project management myself, and know how difficult this can be. We are delighted with the results and love showing off our beautiful new kitchen and bath. G. Christianson Construction is as advertised, a high quality, professional team that delivers what the promise. We highly recommend them. ”
