A Pahrump Appropriate Home

I want a simple, modern beach style house with specific requirements. I need a surplus of hot water and completely unrestrictive environment. I just bought 2.5 acres near CA line. My son requires a 400 pound electric wheelchair and he is legally blind and so instead of room walls I want curtains on rails for privacy. My family lived 5 years in one of those awful new houses in Henderson when the kids were in school. Before that I retired as farmer from Rhode Island and I want to build appropriately in the desert and have a house for outdoor living. Any thoughts?

Tree trunk damage

I have a Japanese Maple approximately 15 yrs old that I just discovered has some damage to the bark on its trunk. I would like to stop any further damage but I can't figure out what would cause this. Whatever happened it was very recent & the pieces of bark are on the ground beneath the tree. I hope you get the photos & any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cover crops

While traveling through the farm country of southeastern Pennsylvania 2 weeks ago I noticed fields full of bright yellow stalks of a plant I can only assume is a crop cove as it is quite tall already indicating a fall planting an covers entire fields. It's a thin, stalky thing, about 23'' tall with a naked straw-like stiff stem for the first 13'' and the rest of the length having alternate leaf stems radiating unevenly around the main stem. At the end of each 5/8'' leaf stem is an upwardly-cupped, 1/4'' seed pod containing 6 brown, ovoid seeds. I sorted through many photos of cover crops but did not come across anything like it. Ever curious, I would be most grateful if you could identify this plant for me. I am enclosing 2 photos of a sample I brought home with me.
