Here is definitely a distinctive Tucson home - it is round! Kind of futuristic in a way but also it evokes images of Iron Age Celtic homes. Would love to know if these residents built it looking forward to the future or honoring the ancients. Unlike ancient Celtic round houses, though, this one has windows to let in plenty of sunlight.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
