Gordon James Builder

100 Creek Ridge Pass, Orono, MN 55356 | (763) 479-3117 | MN Lic #BC531961

With an updated, coastal feel, this cottage-style residence is right at home in its Orono setting. The inspired architecture pays homage to the graceful tradition of historic homes in the area, yet every detail has been carefully planned to meet today’s sensibilities. Here, reclaimed barnwood and bluestone meet glass mosaic and marble-like Cambria in perfect balance.
