• Made use of existing slab, retaining wall and house structure to reduce framing. Only one new footing was required.
• Galvanised steel frame, roof and guttering may be high in embodied energy but require no maintenance.
• Timber battens are Australian Spotted Gum, left to weather grey with no further treatment needed.
