Shed Green Roof

Sometimes you have to just walk your talk...  Dave decided to build a shed a number of years ago to experiment with green roofs and habitat in his own backyard.  The shed was constructed by Dave and his dad.  The roof was planted with friends.  The addition of woody debris (an old apple tree log) may have been a first for a green roof in Portland, Oregon.  The entire construction process was documented and Dave has shared this story at many presentations.  Of the many wonderful things that came out of the learning / experimentation process was the "pole camera".  A device that provided a unique vantage point for photographing green roofs and green streets throughout Portland.  More on that here.
