The form of the addition was inspired by the dilapidated timber shearing sheds that inhabit the local area. These lean-to structures inspired the design of Limerick House, both in form and material.

The exterior of the addition is clad entirely in spotted gum decking boards, stained black to enhance the resemblance the materiality of the dilapidated shearing sheds. The aging of the timber as it silvers off will further enhance this resemblance.
