SUI GENERIS punk rock bike shop home-brew art/craft love


Behold: our new home! We are renting the ground story of this mammoth Victorian in a historical neighborhood of St. Paul as of this weekend, and I'm so psyched. We got a bargain on the month-to-month rent since the owner is putting it on the market and we will have to evacuate for showings and open houses. But we don't care because the place is amazing.

It's a beautiful house with tall ceilings, a huge yard, and a ginormous kitchen (by the standards of rentals in the city in this price range) with tons of counter space. It's located in between my office and J's new job, so we no longer have to drive upwards of eighty miles a day just to commute (plus all the driving we've been doing to look at apartments this month--the gas is killing us). Also--check this out--our upstairs neighbor is a law student working at a firm in the city. I'm really looking forward to meeting her and talking with a real person about all the stuff I talk about on here.

So, anyway, we got a house!

I know! This weekend I'll probably post a Flickr tour of the interior for all you architecture buffs out there.

We just hope we don't get the boot when it is sold. Otherwise, it should be great.

1) House is beautiful.
2) Um, is it on a slant or were you?

1) thanks!
2) um, a little of both.
