PIZZAIOLO CHICKEN COOP & HERB GARDEN

From Maria Laganga of the LA Times, August 18 2009:  "Many urban eateries boast their own kitchen gardens, with mizuna and Mr. Stripey heirloom tomatoes sprouting on rooftops and busy street medians. Some farms even host top-flight dining rooms, where next season's prosciutto snuffles placidly nearby. But chef-owner Charlie Hallowell is nudging the local-food movement into new territory--just off Pizzaiolo's back patio is a brand-new, custom-built chicken coop."

"Andrews, who studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, dreamed up the elegant little structure. Andrews' forte is remodeling the region's cherished Craftsman houses. The bricks that form the 5-foot-by-7-foot coop's foundation came from chimneys that used to stand near the restaurant. The siding came from a demolished garage a mile away. The tin roof once graced an industrial building within the city limits. The roost was made from a branch from a neighborhood plum tree." (Link to full article)
