    The materials were selected for their design and appearance. Also, modest cost and low maintenance.

    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.

Matt Clawson added this to Building Permits: When a Permit Is Required and When It's NotFeb 25, 2015

When a permit might be required. Exterior work such as adding a deck, cutting down trees and building new fences or retaining walls are all elements that may or may not require a permit depending on design, location and the extent of the work.Exterior work on your home, like repairing siding and repainting, may or may not require a permit and can only be determined in context with the rules of your community. Replacing light fixtures, plumbing fixtures and appliances are all examples of work that historically did not required a permit but now may technically require one in some cases.

Shawn Gauthier added this to Shady Character: Stylish Covers for Your PatioJul 5, 2012

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.

Houzz added this to Skillion and Lean-to RoofMay 31, 2012

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.

John Hill added this to Regional Modern: Austin, TexasNov 7, 2011

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.

Minimal material. Simple layout. Good design. This could fit in a budget.

Like the ease of ground cover, sans warm-tones and bordered walkways
