Historic Bathroom Remodel
Classical Historic Bathroom
This complete Bathroom remodel is located within Corvallis' well-loved College Hill Historic District, therefore, the design sought to keep the beautiful qualities found in Historic homes while meeting the accessibility needs of the owners. Featured within the Bathroom is a low threshold tub, which allows easy accessibility getting in and out of the shower, and also allows children and grandchildren to wash in the tub. The custom vanity cabinet provides adequate storage space but loses the easily bumped-into corners of a rectangular vanity.
“They took our period bathroom and built a gorgeous and accessible shower with great sensitivity to the historic details. They left no mess, and finished every detail perfectly. They adapted to small changes we suggested and made errors right. Tony, especially, was just terrific to work with and the cabinetmaker was a master!”
Ed & Karen Miller, Corvallis
The Bathroom vanity cabinet was custom-made to complement the built-in cabinetry that is original to the home. The countertop at the center of the built-ins and the trim of the medicine cabinet were left untouched, and the design of the Bathroom complemented this Historic detail.
Grab bars make it easier and safer to enter and exit tubs and showers, assisting your balance in daily activities. In a room that typically contains moisture and flooring that can be slippery, adding 2 or 3 grab bars can save anyone of any age from hazardous falls.
Pocket Doors are a great way to solve door swing clearance issues in bathrooms with a smaller footprint. Pocket Doors are practical and complement any type of design from traditional to modern.
Efficiency of Space
This Bathroom has a smaller footprint, and therefore space-saving designs were considered. The floor tile is small-scale, enlarging the feel of the space, and the shower glass was uniquely designed to occupy the least amount of space by using a frame-less glass panel to block water at the back of the tub without creating a wall that decreased visible space. The panel is creatively stabilized by the curved shower curtain rod.

What our Clients are Saying
“Bill and Tammy were very happy with our work on their home in Corvallis, so when they bought their home in Philomath, they asked us to create a special Guest Suite for them.”

“Throughout the project, Sarah did an incredible job of listening to our vision and guided our decisions with her extensive design experience. G. Christianson consistently provided excellent materials, work, communication, and, moreover, they became our friends throughout the process. They used only superior quality products throughout our home, made sure all systems and structures throughout were constructed to meet or exceed code standards, and took the initiative to provide superior construction techniques even where it wouldn't show. The custom cabinetry and carpentry throughout is top quality and beautiful. The result is exactly the dream home we've always wanted! Sarah, Tanner, and the GCC team created a gorgeous, comfortable space where our family can grow for decades. It was an incredible two-year experience with the GCC family.”
“Professional, friendly, expert, prompt and on time. We'll be working with them again!”
