Whole House Open Concept
Expanding & Modernizing a 1950's Era Home
Our clients wanted an open floor plan, which meant removing interior walls and obstructions. During this process, we discovered that the previous owners had performed dangerous and structurally unsound work. We helped guide our clients through the process of temporary shoring, emergency engineering, repairing the dangerous conditions and dealing with the building department.
“Greg Christianson's team took the plan and the ideas we had about an open floor plan and made it happen. Transforming an aging rambler into a bright welcoming home. They did a fantastic job and we would hire them again in a flash.”
Dominique Bachelet and Steve Wondzell, Corvallis
Quartz and Wood Countertops
Steve shaped a solid wood eating bar to complement and contrast the quartz countertops. We fabricated custom metal supports and concealed them in the cabinetry in order to create a unique countertop support without any exposed metal.
Re-supporting the Roof
To create the open floor plan, we installed new concealed beams over the kitchen and spent three days jackhammering out the massive brick chimney, pizza oven and interior walls. Once the layout was opened, we needed to tie all of the finishes together. We installed new Oak flooring, Quartz countertops, and refinished the existing tongue and groove ceiling with exposed beams. We also took the opportunity to add insulation to the walls and ceiling, replace old plumbing and seismically reinforce their home.
