Not much else to say. Another great home bar. Love the map. Very creative.

PuPu, I couldn't be more impressed. I've been making very meager progress on my Room of Great Adventure, and your Hideaway is both inspiring to continue and discouraging, as it is more than I could imagine accomplishing.

Well played, Pu(2)

Thanks guys. I'll post more pictures of the booth area shortly (been making alot of progress) but here's a recent quick crappy one:



In the mean time, here is the basic design for the support beams/bamboo arch that runs between the airplane/WW2 area
and the booth/bar area.

The beams are already in place but I have lots of carving to do.
Those are the large Disney Tiki Babies in the carved out sections of the brackets. The 'animated tikis'
will be operated by the Christmas tree face mechanisms fed by an external audio system that was mentioned in an earlier post on this thread.






ps: mrsmiley, I didn't make the bent bamboo wooden frames for those wall hangings but I am making identical smaller versions for some other stuff.

I was just thinkin' Mr. Pupu... how horrible it would be if you ever had to move and leave this amazing work behind. We've seem others dismantle and remantle(?), but I'm bettin' you know this place is yours for life.

Yeah, my wife often jokes about how I'll be buried in our basement someday. I asked her to wait until I'm done.

John, I hope she waits until you're dead before she seals you in the basement

Thanks Mike
At least it'll be a fun place to 'wait it out'.

i'd be honored to be buried there, and would enjoy it even more if you didn't make me wait until i was dead!

Sir Pupu Pants,
I'm blown away by your craftsmanship, but just as impressed by your ability to plan and design. I've watched my place evolve bit by bit, typically on a saturday morning after a little liquid brainstorming late friday night. i think the difference shows. thanks for setting the gold standard!

Thanks very much Faz! For me, the design part is definitely half the fun. (Because--when you're still planning-- 'anything' is still possible )
Here are another couple of recent pictures of the booth area (sorry about the lighting). Most of the bamboo walling is up and the awning is next.

There will be a pass-through window and ledge on the right side for serving drinks (with similar cut/arched bamboo protruding down from the ceiling).





As soon as the booth is done, I'll be back to the airplane section.

PuPu your room is my favorite.

Let me know when you start accepting house guests...I would like to sign up!

I am , however, still waiting for pics of the other theme rooms in your house. I believe somewhere you posted to this effect but we have yet to see them. Am I right? If so please post these as well!

Do you have any tiki themed rooms to rent? I'd like to vacation in your basement.
