My partner Eileen and I have been thinking and building together for 25 years. This home exemplifies all of our desires of what we'd love to have in a house: Surrounded by wonderful neighbors in the richly diverse West Side of Saint Paul; Cozy interior furnishings and a spacious backyard; a fun and inviting front porch; and, to top it all off, the house is fully furnished with everything a traveler will desire—best of all a warm and cozy feeling of home.
