Our humble abode, seen from the South. The wild curtain in the door to the right will disappear soon!

This is the newly formed ramada. Formerly a carport, we have turned it into a nice area for dining or just sitting. You're looking west, where the sun will set in a few hours.

Looking down from the office roof onto the back yard. The bare quarter-circle will turn into buffalo grass in a few months. The raised thing next to the pool is the spa.

More of the pool. That bare spot at the top has since been filled with a fig tree, and Jan plans to plant sunflowers along the north wall.

Looking south to the Back 40. You can see some of the citrus trees, and the compost compound near our back fence.

These trees will grow to shade the office walls from the setting sun. Right now, they're just 6 feet high.

From the house, the office cuts a strong profile. The highest point on the wall is 18 feet.

The odd asymmetry is obvious here, but when you're closer it just looks like a lot of glass.

View of the front yard, looking north. The cactus holes are all filled with nesting birds right now.

More front yard views. Mickey Mouse saguaro is doing well since he got water a few years ago.
