Robert Stone's one-bedroom dwelling "Rosa Muerta" on the outskirts of Joshua Tree

Stone sits by a 5-foot-tall heart-shaped window fashioned in custom cast cinder block. Stone rents the dwelling to intrepid "glampers," a term he derived from "glamorous camping." He put his heart and soul into the three-year project, constructing it himself. "It's serious architecture," he says, "but it's also fun. Why can't it be both? People always want to make it one thing or the other."
