Looks like your tiki is in time out.
Bad tiki! Now face the wall for 5 mins.

Put a second coat of paint on the entrance. LOts more here than meets the eye. This door was under a porch last week...


Started finishing out. Mudding the drywall and painting the ceiling in Bamboo Ben approved BLACK. Yes, flat black... The back wall will be painted once we finish with the mud.



The beams a re brown now, but will be covered in carved panels eventually.


Then we started putting down the other side of the floor. This is will be permanent and this is where the bar will be.

You can just see a lip on the edge here so we can put some rope light under the step up so peopel don't trip.


Man, this was a lot of work! If you have ever mudded drywall, you know it's just a pain. The corners in the room were a mess since there was aluminum siding under there! Big nasty gaps to fill and fix. The corner at the ceiling too. Stuff you don't see, but is a lot of work.

We also got Jatoba flooring for the bar this weekend, but we'll have to get a bit further along before we put it in. We don't want to ruin it in the construction.

Oh, here's the architectural rendering of what the bar area might look like. A split bamboo wainscotting all around with carved panel trim above that as a chair rail. Above the bar is a 1/4 of a 12 foot thatch umbralla held up on the wall sides by carved half round poles and a 1/4 round pole in th eback corner. That thing in the left corner is my 7 foot tall Oratory Table. Rattan couch next to that. A rough design.

Great progress so far!

I am sure it is going to be as stunning as before.

Just some primer. We created a leak in the room accidentally by uncovering the patio and we're trying to get it dry in here so we can do more drywall, etc.

Hung the drywall on this back wall last weekend and started mudding it. This corner will be the display area for the ephemera collection eventually.

Not a lot to report. Still doing the basic work. We're hoping the drywall and other things will be finished over the long weekend and we'll be able to put down the floor soon and start the actual bar building and not just get the walls repaired, etc. We want to get to the fun stuff!

Picked a basic color to go on the walls under whatever.

After painting the ceiling flat black, it was still a bit shiney. Any flat surface would be I guess. So, we have gotten some sand texture to add to the paint to reduce that reflection. It is a pain to apply, but it made a big difference when put on heavy enough. The black parts will need to be textured now before the floor goes in.

Looking good, Swanky. It sure is hard doing the grunt work when you want to skip ahead to the drinking and enjoying phase. Keep it up!

Hang in there,Swanky! You'll be lying on the floor in a rum-induced stupor before you know it!
P.S: Love the color!

Finally! We have finished all the drywall and mudding and sanding and priming! Also put texture back on the ceiling where it was repaired and started texturizing in the bar to cut down on reflections in the black part.
All the painting is done except minor touch ups. The white walls will be covered in tapa cloth.
There is a burnt orange on most of the bar walls and in the back of the mug display area. The ceiling in the Tapa room is a lighter brown and the rafters and door is a dark brown.






That alcove will have shelves for displaying the ephemera.

Installed some light fixtures. Put these track lights up over the display area. Hung tapa cloth in the Tapa Room.

Once the glue dries, we'll need to trim around the ceiling and floor, window and outlets. Eventually we'll trim around it with split bamboo.

Inching our way towards laying down the flooring and starting on the actual bar.

Very nice Tim!!
Could you put some grass skirt type stuff
just in back of the track lights to hide them.
You could build a foe roof line there.
But then you most likely have something in mind.
Good job!

We picked some very cool "Sputnik" style track lights that bring in a little Space Age style. So we intended for them to be seen. Looked at others that were more enclosed and "invisible" but liked this stlye. We'll be putting them on a dimmer too. That will be one of the brighter areas of the bar. It'll change when we have the shelves in there and all the stuff displayed museum style.
