Sommersby Traditional – St. Cloud, MN

Project Type: New Construction

Project Overview: The home embodies the idea of the contemporary classic with its plank floors, large hardwood moldings and seamless color accents and textures. “The client loved traditional American and French country styles, so there are little and big hints of this everywhere in the home,” explained Hollenhorst.

Including a fireplace was crucial to provide an inviting and comfortable atmosphere for the home’s connected kitchen, dining and living area. “It’s the room the family spends the most time in, so having a fireplace as a focal point for gathering was essential” says Hollenhorst who utilized the Heat & Glo SL-5 SlimLine gas fireplace for this project, both for its clean lines and value. “It’s extremely economical, efficient and has the traditional footprint we wanted to use with the custom wood mantel. We wanted to maximize style and functionality, but remain practical and accessible for the homeowner.”
