Mike Lord and Wayan Suarniti's burnt adobe is surrounded by the Sonoran Desert near the hiking trails of Saguaro National Park West. Mike collects unusual plants, ethnic art, salvaged scrap and his library is in a caboose...an authentic Wild West kind of place. He built our Count Rumford fireplace in House made of mud. Wayan is an expert on Indonesian arts and crafts.
