Historic Craftsman Front Porch

Staying true to the historic character of the home

Time and Oregon weather had taken its 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.

“Anytime we work with historic projects, we find unique challenges. We use our experience and creativity to find a path to the perfect finish”

PROJECT DETAILS

Columns and Railings

Keeping with the period of the house and surrounding historic neighborhood, we re-built the wrap around porch 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.

“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

“Larry's cedar deck had reached the end of it's life, the handrails were literally falling off. We rejuvenated it with new Trex and were able to reuse the tall telephone poles that support it. ”
