I live in Phoenix and scorpions get in our house even when the doors aren't open. However, I'd LOVE a sliding glass wall, mostly to be used in the winter, when the scorpions aren't really that active anyway. We have lovely weather about 6 months of the year.

These are all fantastic, a superb collection of what makes Arizona homes unique. I would, however, like to call attention to the fact that petrified wood in the Petrified Forest (one of our national parks) is protected. Items made from petrified wood from elsewhere in the world are commonly sold, but Houzz readers should realize that another country's petrified wood assets are being plundered to make this stuff. Like ivory and whale bone, it is my belief that the right thing to do is not to buy any such items. Instead, buy a Native American pot, like those shown at Taliesin West, although the particular ones shown (by a famous potter family) are very costly. Less expensive ones are very nice also.
