Finally recovered from Oasis. Here are a few pic's of items purchased at Oasis for the bar.
First is a lamp made by KAHAKA. It really looks great. KAHAKA makes awesome lamps!

Here is a craving for the A-frame.

Party Time.

Wow great job, looks awesome. Can't wait to see more!!!

I am wish the other half would agree to doing a backyard A-frame bar but she says "no way you already took over the basement".

That carving over the A-frame is the perfect compliment!

We started this remodel about a year ago. We have had a country style for over 30 years. When it came time to change it up my wife agreed to a tropical theme. Not Tiki, but sort of a tropical resort style. The main rule was no mugs or tiki's in the living room. So here is where we started.

I demo'ed brick from the side of the fireplace to make a pop out. The brick will be covered with drywall, and some cool sconces added to each side of the fireplace.

I also removed brick from this wall too. The blue paneling will be removed & replaced with drywall.

This is the layout for an opening cut into this wall. The other side will become my lounge/office.

This layout will be an exterior window to bring more light in the living room.

Here are a couple more views of the room. I also scraped the acoustic ceiling.


Window framing in place.

Here is the wall cut out. We decided to cut all the way to the door opening. We installed a steel post to stiffen up the wall.

Drywall in place.


We drywalled over the brick on the fireplace, & added electrical for sconce lights.

Added caned ceiling lights for art work accents.

Custom wood window installed.

Fireplace with paint & wall sconces.

I designed this cabinet/display/wine holder, then had it built.

Here is the living room today. Still need a mantel & hearth, base boards & crown molding.



Note the tiki mugs on & in the cabinet. I don't know how long they will be there, but at least they're in the picture. The furniture is craigslist find.
You can see the lounge in the back ground of one of the shots. I'll post some progress pictures of the lounge soon.

New interior is looking great! Curious to see how long the mugs stay in the living room. Great job!

Kon-Hemsby, evel & littlegiles, thanks for checking our remodel. It's been a long year doing this project as money & time permits. The mantel went in this weekend. The granite hearth will go in later this week. Still looking for just the right stuff for walls, but that's the fun part.

Here are couple pictures of the hearth & all of lighting accenting everything.




Here are some progress shots of my lounge/office.
I painted the acoustic ceiling black & the upper portion of the walls a sea foam green.

Next was the installation of Lauhala matting on 3 walls.


I wanted a darker contrast to the sea foam green paint so I stained the Lauhala & the bamboo poles a dark brown. Like the Dagger Bar at Don The Beachcomber.


No pictures of staining the bamboo. I used a 50/50 mixture of stain & varnish. It still took a week to dry. Does anyone know if the mixture should have different?
Here the bamboo is installed.

Here's where I am today. Furniture back in place & some stuff up on the walls.


I am planning on a mug shelf around the top of the room & I have a lot more art to get framed & hung up.

Thanks, Mike
