Hey Lori,
thanks for the comments, it will be livable since it will have electric and a wet bar...what more do you need? Samoan Fog cutter anyone? Can't wait to camp out in it myself

The roof is finally on and completed! check it out - this was the toughest part so far. I made the ridge cap out of sheathing, tar papered it and then applied the left over thatch from the rolls I bought. 3ft sections at a time. I had about 8 in of thatch left over...nothing like a proper take off before starting.

Wow! That is fantastic. I hope it holds up well to the rains in the Southeast. I am scheming as to the outdoor bar I want to build here in the FL panhandle, but the nasty storms make me worry about doing a thatched roof.

This weekend I got a chance to do more work on the barn. Next step was figuring out how to do the walls....well, what I came up with what seems to be a good idea...time will tell. I used 5mm tri ply underlayment (luan) weather sealed it and then stapled reed fencing from Home Depot to give it that tiki feel and a nice texture on the outside. The inside surface will get a nice woven matting like in most tiki room walls. I will use contact cement to apply that and then trim it out with bamboo. Seems to be working...tell me what you think.







Found a great hammock this weekend at a garage sale for 15 bucks! Score
Also planted two banana trees last night in the dark....

Looking great and I like the tropical plantings. Be careful though about using "banana" and "hammock" in the same paragraph
