The Sommarstrom Brothers were originally from Finland but upon arriving here, their construction company quickly became one of the largest in the East Bay due to their reputation for honesty and creative problem solving. Like many builders at the start of the 20th century, they would often design the structures that they built as well. Such is the case with this handsome home on Forest Avenue. It is an interesting combination of prairie and colonial revival with fairly simple but substantial wood trim work both inside and out.
