By choosing fan blades that stood up to water when tested and lining the chest with a scrap of vapor-barrier from a construction site, she made the storage fit for outdoor use. This could be useful to anyone, but she especially hopes the design would be helpful at homeless villages where residents tend to need more storage. She also wonders if urban businesses, churches, or homes might be willing to host seats like this and allow local homeless people to use them as lockable storage. Secure storage is an important need for people who sometimes have no where to go.
Robin would like to continue to experiment with discarded fan blades, perhaps as siding for a shed or doghouse. The group's creations--including chairs built from PVC and coat hooks made of 2x2 scraps--are currently on display at the ReStore's Portland location.
