Looks good so far.

Hopefully that thatching has been treated with flame retardant!

Thanks Hakalugi (love the name!!!) Actually, i did not get the thatch already treated with fire retardant, but I was told I can apply it myself which I was planning to do when everything is complete. We don't use the fireplace anyways because it hasn't worked properly since we bought the house!! Thanks for checkin' it out!

Put up some more matting tonight and I'm all out so the rest of the white panel boards will be painted green because I have already spent way too much on materials (for my budget)!!!! This weekend I'll be ripping more bamboo poles in half to cover the seams and other areas that need it! Thanks for taking a peek!!

Very nice, keep up the good work.

I love your ceiling, the thatch above the timber bamboo looks great!
Do you have room to hang lamps? (Or I should ask, are you planning to hang lamps?)

Polynesiac- yep it sure is!!!

Tikiwahine- thanks, I'm sure there will be some hanging eventually!

Tiki Trav- the day after of the main install smelled but not so bad anymore!

A little more green, and some more bamboo on the ceiling to get some of the slack up!












The white doors and fireplace will have a faux finish and possibly a tapa print that Howland gave me some tips on.
