Cute home in the heart of a bustling hobby lobby building material district, with its own parking lot and a garage, may be a bargain for the price.
But it is also a sight to behold, and the house’s price tag is a reminder of the challenges facing the city as it tries to build a neighborhood that is diverse and inclusive.
The house, which is being built in the building materials business of the city’s largest building materials supplier, is in a prime location on the West Side, in the northwest part of the neighborhood.

The listing also includes an outdoor terrace.
The listing does not say how much the house will cost, but it includes a basement and a crawl space.
