Drought tolerant plants comprise the landscaping adjacent to the home and blend with surrounding natural terrain.

The following information originated in New Zealand's TV Program, My House My Castle:   
The Labour Of Love category includes a Recycled House from Wanaka. Owner G. C. combined his skills as a panelbeater and carpenter to build his unique home almost entirely from salvaged metal and recycled materials.

It took him years to complete and for many of those years he lived without a flush toilet. “I lived really rough,” says the owner/builder. “Without heat and hot water!”

Now, he has all the comforts, is mortgage-free and loves his home!
