Sustainable Custom Cabinetry
Solar Powered Custom Cabinetry Shop
A main aspect of G. Christianson Construction's organizational mission is to build as sustainable as possible, in order to reduce the impact that construction has on the environment. Without making any sustainable choices as a client of G. Christianson, you can feel proud knowing that your cabinets were built using solar power and green construction practices. Our custom cabinetry is built with the highest quality and attention to detail, ensuring full use of the cabinet's lifetime. Our skilled cabinet makers craft them by hand - not on assembly lines. We take pride in the craftmanship, using quality and local materials for a finished product that's a work of art.
“I can honestly say that I wouldn't have the kitchen that I love if it weren't for Carl! His attention to details made a huge difference, he would notice things that I hadn't even noticed. They do great work and they are good people, from Carl and the office staff to all the crew.”

Cabinets by G. Christianson Construction
Meet our Cabinet Shop team, the masterminds behind the gorgeous custom cabinetry you've been seeing on our projects! Prior to working for G. Christianson Construction, Ron, our Cabinet Shop foreman has 40 years of experience designing and building cabinetry for multi-million dollar houses and homes on the Street of Dreams. Ron leads the team with expertise and unmatched attention to detail; The team can not only build you amazing cabinets but also can provide input alongside our designers to deciding exactly what cabinetry will be perfect for you and your project!
Throughout the design process, our designers will work with Ron to propose innovative cabinetry perfect for you and your project. Once a contract has been signed with us, Ron and his crew visit your home or site to discuss any further details and measure the space. Ron and his talented crew uses 5/8" solid wood to craft your new dovetail cabinet boxes and uses hidden undermount drawer slides for the best function and look. With our in-house Cabinetry Shop we can better manage our schedule to get your project completed on time.
LEED Certified & Formaldehyde Free
It is important to us that our cabinet making process be safe and sustainable. Our process is compliant with many USGBC LEED requirements, such as sourcing materials within 500 miles of our project site, cutting down in transportation emissions. Our goal is to be as formaldehyde free as possible, as formaldehyde is a current problem in the wood working industries. We are taking big strives to finally be 100% formaldehyde free within the coming years.
State of the Art Finishing
All cabinets with G. Christianson are finished in this state of the art paint booth. This booth provides a safe and controlled environment for cabinet finishing, both on the user and the environment as toxins are managed within the walls of the booth, and filtered out before exiting into the outdoor environment. The clean air flow allows uninterrupted finishing for an unmatched end product.
There are many advantages and benefits of having Pull-Out shelves or drawers. They make life in your kitchen and bathrooms easier and much more organized. Everything will be easy to get out when you need it and just as easy to put back when you are done.
One of our favorite techniques is a Utensil Holder, which reduces the clutter on your countertops near your stove.
Another favorite technique is adjustable Drawer Dividers, allowing you to revise your organization plans as your home grows.
Silverware Two-Tier Drawers
Many clients love built-in silverware drawers, that feature two-tiers to maximize storage space within their cabinets.
Entry Cubbies and Organization
Small children and adults alike love to have a system to keep their coats, shoes, treasures and ready-to-go items. This cabinetry was custom built to maximize a small entry space.
Pull Out Hamper/Recycling/Trash
Many people love the cleanliness of a pull-out Recycling/Trash drawer, which contains smells and keeps recycling efforts organized.
Highly Water Resistant Finishes
Our cabinet makers are confident using both Conversion Varnish and Pre-Catalyzed Lacquer to provide you the most durable, water-resistant cabinetry available. We have worked with chemically sensitive clients to find products that accommodate their sensitivities. We will work with you to pick the best finish for your project.
To create this unique Fire Charred look, we torched the wood doors of the pantry cabinets, then wirebushed the loose char off, before sealing the cabinets with lacquer. Please ask us about this finish or others such as: distressed, vintage, stained, antique glazed, whitewashed, aged and more.
Highest Quality Hardware
Your cabinetry will see thousands of uses in its lifetime, so we only use the best custom cabinetry hardware. For example, we use Blum soft close hinges and drawer guides.
Accessible Cabinetry Design
When you meet with our cabinetry design team, we will suggest Universal Design techniques to make your space usable now and for decades to come. A couple of techniques are lower countertops, raised dishwashers, sinks with room underneath, microwaves that children can reach, and exceptional lighting.
