Owners, Dave and Sharon Christensen



Christensen Contracting was founded in 1988 by Dave and Sharon Christensen, native Chicagoans, who had a dream of building beautiful homes to bring family and loved ones together….

Dave, a Wheaton Grad, who was known as the guy who could fix anything; Sharon a Business Grad from Taylor U, grew up in the building business as the daughter of Rob Elliot, President of Elliot Construction Company. Together, they have fulfilled their dream through building over one hundred custom homes, as well as remodeling jobs and commercial work.

Christensen Contracting keeps overhead costs low by subcontracting a team of expert craftsman, many who they have worked with them for over 30 years. By subbing out their work, they are able to pass the savings on to you. When you invest in a Christensen Contracting home, you are paying for ALL home and no hidden fees.
