This new home was designed as a spec home for sale by a builder experienced in building this residential building type on an average city lot near Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis. The home was designed to be efficient since it is built on a concrete grade beam foundation over reinforced verticle Helvetica pier pilings. Thickened walls and arched openings provide depth and security for an open living floor plan.
