Mornings are a breeze when you’re Trestle Homes’ owner Peter Crain, who wakes up to an eco-friendly green roof and peaceful patio without lifting his head from the pillow. Just beyond a set of double doors in the second-level primary bedroom, the outdoor oasis awaits— designed to not only capture runoff and lower the temperature of what would otherwise be a hot, flat roof, but also bring a bout of beauty to Minneapolis’ Fulton neighborhood. Here, a sea of pre-planted trays filled with hardy, pollinator-loving sedum plants makes morning coffee on the rooftop an experience worth climbing out of bed for.
