    I remember as a kid many homes and Mountain Shadows resort with rocks on the roof as a natural cooling idea. This was a strange reminder of that.

    The best part of having an Arizonan basement (besides having the basement itself), would be to crack through one of the walls and build tunnels and rooms.
