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.

What our Clients are Saying
“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
“Our 30-year-old bathroom was in dire need of a major makeover. We envisioned a spa-like retreat…a place for calm relaxation and recharging. We had a general idea of a direction but needed help with all the details. Designer Anna Clink, with her eye for exquisite detail, supplied the focus and kept me from going overboard. The workmen on the crew were all talented craftsmen who daily showed their enthusiasm for the project through their care and input. This was a true collaboration. The result speaks for itself. You know you are on a good team when the finished product exceeds everyone’s expectations. ”

“We had a full kitchen remodel and we couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Sarah, our designer, did a beautiful job of incorporating our wishes into the design, while ensuring that the design fit with the rest of the house. All of the employees, as well as the subcontractors they chose, were professional and wonderful to have in our home. The cabinet makers were meticulous about every detail in the cabinets and trim. G. Christianson Construction was responsive to every question and concern we had during the entire process. We love the results!”
