Thanks for your interest in Nick's work. The corrugated galvanized metal was installed during the construction phase. Please consult your builder regarding retrofit.

Thank you for your interest in our work. Traditional fiberglass batts were used in the ceiling and walls. It was an inexpensive and effective solution.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Regional Modern: Austin, Texas
Nick Deaver Architect calls this house Walkabout, but it is located in suburban Austin, not Australia. The name is apt both for the building's vernacular appearance (covered in corrugated metal) and the low-maintenance landscaping, recalling a place more remote than it is. The linear house carefully locates shaded patios on different sides to provide outdoor space for different times of the day.
Houzz added this to Skillion and Lean-to Roof
There's no ridge with a skillion and lean-to roof. Visual interest comes from the juxtaposition of the separate planes of the roof angles.
Regardless of the type of cover you choose, consider building the frame for your cover on an angle for extra protection. Think about the most common time of day you’ll be using the patio and work with an architect to determine the best angle for your home.
