41. a strawbale house built around a inner courtyard
so every room opens onto a plant filled courtyard with a fountain

active and passive solar heating, lots of tile that has water pipes that run under it for cooling in the summer and heat in the winter

lots of windows and a little space on the roof for hubby's telescope and cool breezes in the evening

and it would have a small root cellar to store my onions and taters from the garden

this desert lot would be fine but i need to add some pecan trees
