Habitat For Humanity / Emerald Awards 2009

This began as a single project and gained new life as a donation for a great cause.


Emerald Awards 2009
Two bench-chairs and a coffee table for talk-show portion of award ceremony.  Not as cushy as in 2008, but the concept is much more sound (up-cycling).

Habitat For Humanity
Once the Emerald Awards were completed, we got in touch with a friend in Las Vegas who had been asking for a contribution to the first Habitat for Humanity homes to be LEED® Platinum certified.  We provided the benches we had produced for the Emerald Awards, and created shoe racks for 2 homes in Henderson, NV.

The homes were designed by Rick Van Diepen of PGAL.  There's an article in the Desert Companion here.
