Rose’s Deck

Rose's Deck

The wife of G. Christianson's founder Greg Christianson, wanted a space at her home that enhanced the beauty of her land and provided a functional area for entertaining guests. We replaced her back deck for safety, added an accessible concrete patio to her front yard that provided access to her landscape and garden, and added fencing to discourage the deer. With guidance by Kristine Jensen at Radiance By Design, we integrated landscape lighting design into the concrete work and landscape to highlight the same beauty at night.

Project details

Concrete Bench Walls

These arched concrete bench walls create a level backyard entertaining space under the shelter of the mature Beech tree. The bench doubles as a retaining wall and creates the feeling of different outdoor spaces through varying levels, and highlights great focal points with seating to entertain guests.

Screened Porch

The screened porch is perfect for enjoying all seasons of the Pacific Northwest weather year-round. The large glass windows enhance the viewing of the beautiful yard and bird watching while providing protection from unwanted insects and long exposure to UV rays. Summertime screens (and large overhangs) keep the temperature comfortable.

TimberTech Decking

TimberTech features high-performance PVC capped technology which delivers powerful resistance to moisture damage, mold, rot, and swelling. Its slip resistant surface is safe and the material protects against UV discoloration and damage. Furthermore, the deck will last decades and requires hardly any maintenance.

Detailed Concrete Surfaces

Our concrete finishers produce amazing quality concrete work. No job is too big or small. Check out the hand burnished bench surface, intricate detailed work and sand-finish patio, displayed in the slideshow!

What our Clients are Saying

“...There was careful oversight from the project manager throughout. I would highly recommend this team for any construction needs.”

Carol & Paul Adamus, Corvallis

“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.”

“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!”
