A Place to Grow, Recycled Greenhouses of San Luis Obispo has received a Green Innovation Award from the U.S. Green Building Council.

The honor was for a handcrafted greenhouse structure that featured urban forested redwood milled from a San Luis Obispo tree that had to be removed because of a restaurant fire. It also featured vintage windows and doors, repurposed corrugated metal and French oak wine flavor sticks retrieved from a local winery, according to a news release.

The company custom designs and handcrafts outdoor living structures that can be used as greenhouses, yoga or art studios, outdoor bedrooms or lounging areas. It is owned by Dana and Sean O’Brien.
