Home of the Month
The Home of the Month is published the first Saturday of every month through a partnership between the Star Tribune and the Minnesota chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
The 12 architect-designed houses were selected by a jury of experts; the houses represent a range of price levels, styles and locations.
