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.

What our Clients are Saying

“I’ve had major renovations done on four houses, including a 100 year old 3-story townhouse in Chicago, this has been by far the best and smoothest remodel experience in my life”

David Fiske and Valerie Lau, Corvallis

“I have worked with contractors across the country. This contractor was prompt. Every change was posted with pictures within the project that you could view at any time. As a Project Manager, it is helpful to have a technical process of tracking. They even went beyond on a choice I had made. When the painter arrived, they noticed the colors were too close to the sign. They called me immediately to confirm. I would use them again! Great contractor!”

Stephanie Opperman, Caliber Home Loans

“We have hired G. Christianson Construction for many projects in two homes over a span of many years... I would not hesitate to recommend or hire them again. Thumbs up! ”

Laurie Sheriff & Scott Dickinson, Corvallis
