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
We believe that almost every project can benefit from exceptional lighting. For our office, we asked our lighting designer to help us with the, "heart" of lighting, 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.
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.
What our Clients are Saying
“It was a good experience. We have used them a couple of times. They did very high quality work and I would not change any detail. They were very responsive. We did not really have any problems with them. They were right on schedule towards completing the project but their price was a little bit high.”
