Mondrian Modern Kitchen
Our clients originally reached out to G. Christianson to build the shell for an 8 foot expansion of their Kitchen and Living Room, but due to frustration managing their subcontractors, they choose us to manage the entire project. We were able to guide our client's design decisions to this stunning final product when they expressed that they wanted to move away from "boring" all white kitchen cabinets. So our in-house designers modeled their kitchen in 3D to help visualize how to best place the primary colors to capture the essence of Piet Mondrian's Composition II in Red, Blue and Yellow (1929). These final Kitchen, Laundry, Living, and Outdoor Pergola spaces are unique to our client, meeting each personal need and detail. Check out the last two photos in the slideshow for one of our 'before' pictures, to see a side-by-side comparison of this extraordinary transformation!
“As a perfectionist, with a background in art, I clearly knew what I wanted for my remodel. G. Christianson Construction exceeded my expectations. We can’t say enough about their team especially Alejandro, Gavin, Carl, and Ben were all remarkably respectful and helpful. ”

Compost, Recycling and Trash Bins
Concealed trash and recycling bins are a favorite kitchen feature. For this project, we added unique compost bins as well. These bins effortlessly slide in and out of the drawer unit, making sorting, recycling, and composting easy.
Summer sunlight in a south facing room can be overpowering. We recommend adding solar powered remotely controlled blinds, which make it easy to control the amount of daylight that enters your Velux skylight. Velux blinds can be easily added and are available in many colors and blackout options.
Our Custom Cabinet Shop uses premium pre-catalyzed lacquer for all of our cabinetry work. This allows us to bring any of your big dreams to life with little to no barriers. Pre-cat retains the best qualities of traditional lacquer but provides a harder surface that better resists abrasion, thanks to a catalyst (think of two-part epoxy) that initiates a chemical reaction as the finish dries. This cabinet door features red-tinted lacquer to create a false horizontal split that meets both the desired form and function.
We encourage all of our clients to consider adding solar panels to their homes. For this project we championed, helped design and install a 12.4 KW solar panel system to replace all of our client's electricity usage. This system includes 40 solar panels, saves 11 tons of carbon pollution per year, and provides about $1,500 savings per year.
G. Christianson Construction is a Design - Bid - Build company. When you work with G.

“We worked with G. Christianson on a pretty major kitchen remodel, and the whole project went wonderfully from start to finish. They helped us develop our vision for the new kitchen into a concrete set of plans, and they worked with us to keep the project within our budget. As construction progressed, they were communicative and responsive. We really appreciated the weekly meetings they held with us, where they updated us on their progress and consulted with us about any changes we needed to make to our original plan due to unforeseen quirks in our mid-century house. In the end, the work is solid and beautiful, and our new kitchen is a joy to cook and bake in. We really appreciated the craftsmanship, attention to detail, and deep knowledge of the whole G. Christianson team. We felt like we were in good hands the entire time we worked with them. Just as importantly, everyone we interacted with during the project was friendly and professional, from Carl, the owner, to Anna, the designer we worked with, to Ben and the G. Christianson crew, to all of the subcontractors they brought in, and everyone else. We wouldn't hesitate to work with G. Christianson again if we ever have more remodeling work to do, and we highly recommend them.”
