Thanks for the encouraging review, Kawikasurf.......I need to finish off this one and see how it looks.
Bamboo Stu, it does look like pressure treated lumber in the photos. It isn"t though.....I had a few gallons of stain left over from another project that I used for the wall panels and roof.It is a little more green than I remembered. I am hoping that with some bamboo, matting, shelves full of tiki mugs and a couple of TiKis that it will blend into something interesting and fun.
Thanks for looking.

Man that thing is sweet! Would you like to share your cost on this project so far? Nice work keep the photos coming.

thanks, big tikis. I'm not sure of the cost so far because I used some materials that I had left over from other projects. I'll figure it out when I'm done with it. I have some left over bamboo fencing and some cedar fence boards that I plan to use on the exterior.

Great use of left over material. Was this project your own vision, or did you have something as a reference? Can't wait to see how it turns out!

thanks, VampiressRN.
BG TIKIS, I don't really have any one thing as a reference. I just had an idea and a sketch that I had to try to turn into something. It really shouldn't be taking me so long to finish it...............I have been building it at work after hours and just have been too busy. Hope to finish it soon. If I can turn it into some kind of a kit, I'll have to make some changes (not in the design, just in the construction)
Thanks again for looking.

finally started doing some more work on this project


I used bamboo fencing and 1x6 cedar fencing to cover the wall panels
at the corners under the bar (where the bamboo ends) I will use some 2x10s with TiKis carved into them


I sliced a palm log in half, then cut a notch out of the back of them to cover the 2x4s at the corners.
next, I will carve them into a couple of simple TiKis

That prototype still sits un-finished.....it was a good idea but I didn't think it through as far as ease of building as a kit.

I'm working on another simpler version and hope to have photos soon.

The original hut is mostly finished and would make a cool back-yard bar.....it's just too big to get through a gate (and pretty heavy too).

What was your roofing plan? Was it going to be all thatch or steel/thatch?

So do you make and sell kits? I've been stuck in the design phase for 4 years...still trying to figure out exactly what I want to do and once every few months comb over the posts here on tiki central to get more ideas.

My plan for the roof was a combination of thatch and shingles. My day job is building roof trusses, so I've been interested in some type of TiKi hut kit for awhile off and on.

Maybe this next version will be better.......I'm going to set it up in my backyard soon I hope.

I built this simpler version for the North County Home TiKi Bar Crawl (our home was one of the stops) A really simple design and easy to assemble. I was in a hurry, so I covered the panels with reed fencing (quick & cheap).....probably should be bamboo or bamboo and grass mat.
