•    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.
