Ugh!

30, 94 lb bags of cement.

60, 50 lb bags of sand.

4, 12 hour daze.

1, skinny Bamboo Ben feeling his age.

But, it's gonna look Awesome when it's done!!!


phase 2 next week.

Finishing Amy's Lava Flow and tuning up

some other stuff in Raymyland.

And, building another Tiki Room across the street

at Amy's son's pad, the "Shark Cove".

( wait till you see the size of the fish on the wall!!)



Keep an Eye out.

Well, the bar has been moved and although it was a great deal of work and $$$ it was worth it. Ben did an amazing job on the lava wall and making the bar part of the wall, as it is now closer Here are pictures, hope you like them. I will try to take a side photo to show the new bar placement.a little more cleanup and we are ready

We need a party!


This is the new "dock" that Ben built that is above the lava wall and joins the big pond with his new water fall





side lava wall





The old island tiki-fied







The landing


the lava water fall with lights











All the furniture back on the bar, but not in place yet

If I were your neighbor I would be bringing you pies and being as friendly as possible just so you would invite me over to hang out!

Love it all..esp the lava detail.

This thread is very difficult to watch without drooling on the keyboard.
Just a very special place you have.
I'm surprised Ben hasn't installed a Budweiser tap in the bar yet.
Gongrats Amy!

Too cool.

What is supplying the moving force for the bar?





Mexican Engineering.

Benny the landscaper did it.

Landscaping logs and a come-a-long.

Blew me away!!

Benny is a hero in my book!

He left a lot of palm logs behind.

Carving party?
