G. Christianson Construction Office

Stripped down to the studs

When Greg and Rose purchased the old First Alternative Co-Op building on 4th street, A LOT of work was necessary to bring it up to modern standards. We expanded the building on three sides with new additions, dug out the crawlspace to create a basement, added a front porch, a back porch and a handicap ramp. The interior spaces were all upgraded to our custom home quality. The exterior was fully replaced with durable materials to last through our wet weather, such as HardiePlank siding and trim.

“My Mom and Dad wanted the business legacy to grow beyond their dining room table, so they created a beautiful space downtown to allow G. Christianson Construction to thrive.”

Carl Christianson, Owner

PROJECT DETAILS

Exceptional Lighting

We believe that almost every project can benefit from exceptional lighting. For our office remodel, we asked our lighting designer to help us with the "heart" of lighting, and what you need the light to do. Then we focus on the "soul" of lighting. This is the aesthetic, how you want the light to look and feel. ​

Radiance by Design »

Framing the Back Porch

Our design often focuses on how to maximize space. We added a covered front and back porch to use as our lunch area.

Solar Panels & Batteries

We increased our solar array to 10KW and added a 32 KWH battery system. In addition, air-sealing and extra insulation on all sides help reduce energy costs. We selected a Blue Ion battery system to provide uninterrupted power to our office during outages and keep us in business when the "Big One" hits. The Blue Ion batteries have a 21 Year life expectancy, zero maintenance, safe operation and provide the best value for off-grid living.

Live Tile Edge

We brainstormed how to connect the full-height backsplash tile from the edge of the upper cabinet and the edge of the countertop. We came up with this live edge detail in collaboration with our tile installer, where we highlighted the uniqueness of the diamond tiles by removing one tile set.

Walnut Cabinet Insert

We love the way the walnut, black cabinets, and gold hardware complement each other! The LED strip light is inlaid in the walnut for display, the ornate cabinet door style takes the common shaker door to the next level, and the change in cabinet depth all create a beautiful furniture piece in the Design Office.

Custom Board & Batten Wainscoting

Our carpenters custom built this board & batten wainscoting, with the batons spaced apart in the correct proportion for the size of the room.

Alan & Nickie Deutsch, Corvallis

“As a long-time Corvallis resident, it was a joy to design a project that not only benefited my immediate clients but also the community as a whole. Working so closely with Ants on a Log Cafe and the Valley Rock Gym, it was clear that they are passionate about sustainability and supporting other local businesses. ”

“We found that G. Christianson has a focus on quality in every detail. This made them very easy to work with and has resulted in a beautiful remodel of the master suite in our home. Tony, the carpenter, in particular made sure every detail he worked with was perfect and made sure the site was cleaned up every day, even when the mess was left by a third party contractor. Thanks to all the team at G. Christianson for the excellent work.”
