Paul and his impeccable rock star wife Sara put us up for the night in their modern modular home in NE Minneapolis; just a stone’s throw from the Mississippi River and Psycho Suzie’s. Paul and Sara’s house is fitted comfortably between more traditional NE Minneapolis homes providing a contrasting yet clean, sharp definition of space to the neighborhood. Refined custom steel and wood work designed and fabricated by Paul adds to the clean finish and refined furnishings, and the high ceilings and well-placed windows supply wonderful amounts of daylight for doing all sorts of activities inside. If everyone knew how wonderful it is living inside a box nobody would ever pitch their roof again!
