Main House

The main house was designed by an architect who was strongly influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright.  The home was originally built in 1957, but during the years 2002-2003 was fully gutted and remodeled.  It has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with central gas heat, central A/C, and a huge central evaporative cooler on the roof.  For those of you that don't know, an evaporative cooler looks like a central A/C unit, but internally it is nothing but a large fan that pulls outdoor air through a wet fiberglass pad and then directs the chilled air into the house.  In areas with low humidity during the summer, such as the Arizona desert, you can have excellent summer cooling while adding little to your electric bill.  On the subject of climate control ~ the exterior of the house is 8" adobe brick, a great insulator, and all the windows are double pane.  All-in-all, this house is a wonderful place in which to live in just about any desert weather!

The property is located in one of the most convenient neighborhoods in Tucson, about 1 mile NW of the intersection of Sabino Canyon Road and Tanque Verde Road, yet the neighborhood is quiet ~ enjoy the pictures!

One of the first things we do after moving into a new home is arrange the garage so that we can get two cars and all of our debris stored away!

AA4M is my ham radio call sign and 2013 is the Corvette's model year.  The vertical squiggles down the 2013 plate is Arizona's poor way of rendering the plate copyproof!  :(

Next to the home theater is a gas fireplace.  On chilly mornings Bonnie lights a fire, then reads the newspaper in her La-Z-Boy recliner!  :)

Our TV room.  The cabinet and table (at the far right) in this room was left behind by the previous owners, as was a LOT of the furniture throughout the rest of both houses!
