Stop! You're killing me! Your place is looking more and more fabulous and the build out of my tiki lounge is stuck in some county government inbox waiting for a building permit!

Really though, I can't wait to see the final pics. It looks terrific. You've done everything right. THIS is the way it should look. I'm curious, what are the dimensions of your room?

Mahalos, all you polynesian pop culture crazed peeps!!!

Jungle Trader--you're welcome anytime. I've heard you threaten a visit to the SoCar several times before---brang it on, brutha!

Thanks Harro--I'm considering you a regular at 'The Jungalero Room'--at least virtually.

SophistaDawn--Thnx for the comps--you know you can bend my ear anytime you need to for advice, etc. Keep in mind, though-I'm better at telling people how they shouldn't do something rather than how they should! No better way to learn than the hard way, though. BTW-I love your Cook Islands story

Thanks Kim--Hope ya'll have been gettin' it good up in the VA. Not too bad here lately--sporadic, as usual though. I used
http://www.eti-usa.com/consum/envtex/envlite.htm. It took a one gallon kit ('bout 70 bux) for the top and I had to go back and get an 8oz. kit to finish the 'flip top-entryway' part of the bar top.

Swank-gotcha over the phone. See ya'll soon.

Thanx, Sneaks of Boise!!

Thanx to you as well BambooBen, Can't say i ain't peeked at your 'stylin's' a time or 2 for inspiration. Da Reverend made me do it!

Thanx Ruzic the Mad! The kinda mad that makes me glad and not so sad, cuz you so bad, see ya, Brad.

Muchothanxo VRN--thanx fer keepin' tabs--I'm gonna have to consider you a 'regular' at the Jungalero Lounge as well!

GatorRob--"killing you"!?!? --HUH!-this place has all but drained me of everything except for my stress-it is a labour of love though I must admit. I guess I have been lucky with not having to deal w/ permit issues. I've mostly just been covering existing construction with 'pretty' stuff.
Dimensions for the room are approximately 12' X 35'. Thanx for keeping up w/ progress. I can't wait to see what you do with your space when you get on it--hope I can help/inspire!

Thnx, Tiki Trav--you got it going on too, bro---I'm checking your progress--coming along nicely!!!

Thanks Clarita!! Going to need some candles for my place soon--I'll get with you.

A few pics coming up soon--not quite finished but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now.

A few new pics-nothing indicating significant progress since last image update:
Mugs eye view:


Maybe the most significant upgrade since last set of pics. A makeshift thatch roof over the bar area and some string lighting along the top. Pic looks ALOT brighter than actual lighting in the room. I threw this together pretty quick for a party that was coming up sooner than I could do it like I wanted to do it--so there you have it--not too bad.


The dark side of the room-at least the way it is now. I still need to adjust some lighting--more in some areas--less in other areas. Picked up the sofa and table at a yard sale for 50bx. Bought the uphlstry material at a local fabric joint for about 1/2 price, I believe. Our friend Norine did the upholstery work for us-Thanx-I owe you many crabs --Norine-crab queen!


The ole Marquesan canoe piece I did awhile back. Still needs to be hung on the wall somewhere. Now it's sitting on a weird looking table I 'harvested' from the dumpster of an Indonesian/Chinese import furniture biz that closed down. (along with the ottoman/stool looking piece in background) When the furn. store was open, the manager told me that alot of the furn was built from stuff like old oxe carts, house ornaments--basically anything that was decorative but otherwise considered junk.


Check back soon--BH

Hey Howland- It's looking so vintage as said - like an old postcard. You're doing a beautiful job on it.
