Monkeyman...just a killer project you've got going' on there!

The room and backyard environment is a crowning achievement for you, and I too can't wait to see it all decked out in Monkeyman lighting, art and frames etc .

The progress week to week is an inspiration to us all.

Shaka gesture and Thanks for the progress pics. Take Care. G

I'm guessing those wires are on a switch so you can turn on all the lamps easily. I envy your high ceilings.

Looked at power strips for the Hideaway, but they were all white and compared to just using an already black extension cord and power strip, it cost a lot less.

I like what you're doing with the ceiling. Your 2X4 beams look great, wish I would have used that idea for my bar. Did you get that look with just stain or did you burn it after using the grinder? Keep the pics coming.

Thanks everyone for the kind and supportive comments. This is a project Ive been waiting to do for a long time... just holding out till I had the right location for it.

Swanky, The center wire in the ceiling is a slide switch to control the drop down ceiling fan. I can control the different speeds from the wall. The other two wires will have plugmold power strips along both sides that Im going to paint first. They will have a faux speckled brown colored sprayed on and then will be cut into the carved panels that Im going to install on the sides of the center beam. They will control all the lamps from a single switch and I wont have ANY wires or swag chains running up and down the walls.

Tiki Vato, Those 1x2's were just plain old cheapy pine from Home Depot. I used a super course sanding attachment for my grinder and distressed them to look hand carved. It was a pretty quick process. Then I used a stiff wire paint stripping tool that attaches to my drill to beat up the wood. Then its just a stain and clear coat. No burning neeeded. In the end I will attach the bamboo beams directly to those strips of wood.

This is the outside papered and lathed ready for stucco.


Here is the outside of the South Pacific Room with a "Scratch" coat of Stucco/concrete


Its amazing how much more quiet the inside of the room is. It stops sound and vibration from the nearby road. Im also hoping to have better temperature regulation in the room...

This weekend we installed the ceiling beams.
Having several drills with the appropriate bits makes things go faster.

I'm sorry to point this out now, but shouldn't you move the French Doors a little to the Right to better center how it frames that PNG Mask out by the Pool?



Nice work!

Hi Derek,
Like all the work of yours I've seen on this site -- sheer awesomeness.
It looks amazing already -- and you're only just getting started. I can't wait to see what you do next.

BTW - wasn't it fun tearing out your fireplace? We rented one of those roto-hammers and obliterated our old 60's stone fireplace (to replace it with a Victorian styled one we built for the 'theme' of that room). It was a total blast. Had a big smile on my face the whole time.

Hope you're having as much fun as it looks!
John

Awesome Roof Derek! Looking really good! I have been slowly building my backyard Hut/studio and went over all the exposed beams with the grinder like you did after seeing your photo! I liked the hand chiseled old look of it!
