Historic Craftsman Front Porch
Staying True to the Historic Character of the Home
Time and Oregon weather had taken their toll on the home, so Deb hired us to restore her porch. We replaced the rot in the columns, the concrete work, the steps and walkways, and reinforced the home for earthquakes while keeping the historic character of the home in mind as we worked with Deb Kadas, who designed this porch.
“Anytime we work with historic projects, we find unique challenges. We use our experience and creativity to find a path to the perfect finish”
Steve Schoonover, Superintendent, G. Christianson Construction
Columns and Railings
Keeping with the period of the house and surrounding historic neighborhood, we re-built the dream wrap-around porch that anyone would enjoy a cup of coffee on.
Hard Trowel Concrete Porch
We worked with Deb Kadas, Designer, to create mockup samples of the various possible finishes for concrete work and she selected this burnished flat trowel finish to recreate the historic texture of the original porch. We also poured both steps and wall caps to match the finish of the original porch.
