The copper roof will patina to the color of an old penny with time to blend more with the natural surroundings. Organ pipe cacti, agave, golden barrel cacti, and flowering Argentine Giants make up the landscaping of the front entry.

Custom sofa tables frame the matching sectionals while arching floor lamps provide additional overhead lighting. Blue Meltdown Glass below the TV hides the media equipment and pays tribute to the owners favorite team.
