As you see various homes for sale in the Cave Creek and Carefree area, you'll notice the astonishing sites they were able to use.  They call it "rock engineering", the siting perfectly of a structure into the environment, and not destroying a scenic lot, just to plop a house down.   Not many are as spectacular as the famous Slingman house, which was the first home to bridge a canyon in Arizona and garnered top national design  and architectural awards.
See why there are so many spectacular homes in the rocks in the Carefree area The Rock Houses of Carefree
