Here is an update.....most of what we are doing lately is just framing, so
not much worth posting.

Moki came up to make sure we are actually working. Starting to sheath
the roof.



Looking up at the roof detail under the bar.



The bar framed in.



There wont be much going on for the next few weeks as I will need to get
plumbing and electrical in so I can get the rough inspection.

This is like my favorite mini series on TV ... TO BE CONTINUED NEXT WEEK!
It's so cool to see your progress, I love it.

Any plans to do a time capsule hidden in the walls? Maybe a Benzart pendant A Tiki Farm mug a Monkeyman frame an
Onatiki light, ok the light my not fit but what a cool time capsule it would be. A treasure for someone to find some day.

You guys are insanely hardworking and talented. I love the progress pics. What material are you going to use to cover the roof?

Sabu

TikiBird-shooting for early summer completion
Alldo-stop by...my surfing days are limited, would love to hear about yours
Bamboo Ben-cabinets in the den where we will keep the cool collectables
TikiJosh-Yes it was in the Fall 2005 issue of Atomic Ranch. No fish tanks, just fish in the pond
Tikiwahine-I look forward to seeing the progress on your pad
Dr. Shocker& RobRoy-thanks for the offer of help, we may need it
TikiKate-I will try to post some of the house yard stuff
HododHank-I created a spoiler post, I have some more drawings I can add, the beams were routed and carved
Swampfire-a timecapsule is a great idea
GatorRob- no complaints from the neighbors......yet. The retired sheriff across the street hasn't spoken to me since we started. Most of these people don't spend much time outside. The guy behind me stuck his head over the fence to ask what we were building. When we told him it was a bar he perked up and started apologizing for his barking dog.
Sabu-the roof is planned to be corrugated metal. we will probably paint it to get rid of some of the shine.
Spermy, Matt Reese, Loki, Bete, Hewey, Benzart, Tikigap, Polynesiac, Chongolio, SuburbanPagan,Monkeyman,VonTiki, UngaBunga, LWID, Kahaka, and everyone that posted.......Thanks for your support and I hope to see you all here someday soon.

We picked up some cut telephone poles from the old Trader Nick's site in Pismo Beach that we will put in the yard somewhere

Here is the latest......room is wired and plumbed, electrician will be back next week to install and wire sub-panel, then rough inspection from the city. The retired sheriff across the street gets a nice view from upstairs.



inside



A little more privacy from the neighbors behind us after the siding is installed



Concrete/stone veneer (70s style, not popular.....special order) on planter wall where railroad ties were taken out



Side yard to street



Side yard to back



Contractors here are spoiled. Afraid to get wet, and we had a very wet March.

Bongo, it is Really looking great. Love the concrete/stone work on the planter. The building on the whole looks like it will be strong enough to take a direct hit from a cat 5 hurricane, in other words "Built like a brick Outhouse". Looks like everyone is doing a great job. Through it all your yard looks great. Keep the pic's coming, thanks..

Looking good Ron!

Can't wait to see the finished product... though if it looks as good as the side path it will be a tiki paradise!

Love the old school torches

Good to see the surfboards

Im not surprised. The bongofurys know how to do things right.

Its looks great and I see BIG potential.

Onatiki ?... get him really working and then you will see some results. None of this 10am - 2pm with hour lunch business.


Its clear you are using a winning team.

Thanks again everyone. BambooBen- The sheriff has not been as friendly once the hut could be seen over the fence. We will have him over once we get things close to done to show him that we aren't doing human sacrifices although Mrs. Fury told him we buried our ex's under the new driveway. Benzart- yes, we thought if we lost the house in an earthquake we would be safe out back. We took out all of the plants and grass, so we are planting as construction is out of the way. We had a lot of plants in pots from our last house and last year we bought a bunch more when a local nursury went out of business (small plants= $1.50, 1 gallon=$6.00, & 5 gallon=$15.00). Lake Surfer-The surfboards are from the early 80s, both 6'7" single fin. The torches I got about 3 years ago. Vintage look, but they also have a low voltage path light underneath. MaiTiki-It will be our Oasis from work. Monkeyman-Onatiki has been a big help, we hope to have him back after rough inspection so we can make better progress. He usually started at 8:00am and worked til dark, then it was beer, dinner, beer, and bed. No messin around! Here are more pics of the yard/house.


the barbeque


underside of torch. less fuel capacity to allow pathlight underneath.


preview of bathroom sink. cabinet from Marshalls, composite clamshell sink/planter from some home catalog.


looking back to the house from the bar. we added the trapezoid window above the living room window (over bbq) to let in more light. The slider was moved from where the window on the left is. before you had to squeeze around the dining table to get outside, better flow now and we added planters to both sides of the door for the palm trees. The stone will eventually cover the block on the bbq.


side of bbq


other side, pond will be between patio and bar
