What our Clients are Saying

“I love working with the Christianson crews. They are thoroughly professional and incredibly detail-focused. They kept the worksite perfectly clean and tidy, and never skimp. Our screened porch (2015) and remodeled kitchen (2020) are our favorite, most-used, rooms in the house.”

Sandra Bean, Corvallis

“Working on this home was truly a one of a kind experience; every room had its own unique personality and story with custom hand-crafted tile throughout. In one of my favorite rooms, "The Swamp," every person who was involved on the project picked out tiles that they felt would represented them and signed the back. I was able to install these tiles as a memento of all of the hard work and dedication poured into the project. This was a fun acknowledgment of the craftsmanship and artistry involved.”
