General comment: It's a very alluring design to be sure, but In the write up on this picture they spelled Tucson, 'Tuscson'. Really? Is it that difficult to spell Tucson correctly? For fifty years I've been seeing Tucson misspelled, and it's finally beginning to get on my nerves. But again, as for the design, it borders on magical. =:-)

What sort of plant are the ones at the back - they are so funky!! I'd love to do the same at my place but not sure if these are available in NZ

Painting in black - I am finishing a house in Spain and part of the exterior is dark grey, I am worried about fading and cracking of the paint in the areas more expose to sun. How you solve these problems in this house, because I imagine sun in Tucson is very hot. Thank you

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Spry kept the new house as simple and streamlined as possible. Anything that wasn't absolutely necessary — including shingles, bulky columns and trim — was taken off. "I stuck with what wouldn't blow off in a hurricane," says Spry. The entryway is made up of a single column, a steel beam and a plate on top for a portico. Basic pavers carve a path to the front door.
Here’s a minimalist structural expression of enclosure. This covered entry is ¼-inch plate steel held up by a steel column and a steel beam. Nothing is superfluous. The structural elements have been rusted by the elements to a beautiful bronze color.
Laura Gaskill added this to How to Choose the Right Solar Lights
How solar lighting works. Photovoltaic cells absorb sunlight during the day to charge the batteries, which then light the bulb at night. Because solar lights are powered by the sun, they must be placed in an area that receives full sun — ideally eight or more hours per day.What if you don’t have direct sun? If you are putting solar lights in your desert yard in Tucscon or Palm Springs, they are sure to operate at maximum strength — but what if you live in Seattle or simply have a heavily shaded yard? It’s not quite as simple, but you can still have solar-powered lights, even in a fully shaded area. A solar or landscape lighting pro can help position a remote photovoltaic panel on your roof or in a sunnier area of your yard, which can then be wired to the lights in the shady area. If there simply isn’t much sunlight to be gathered, even on the roof (for example, you live somewhere like Seattle or Portland), the solar lights will still work, but they won’t shine as brightly or for as long each evening.
