Absolutely Awesome!
I've been hit 5 times by my wife followed by" why can't you do this?"

GREAT JOB!

Paradise on Paradise.
A perfect example of what the love of Tiki can do.
Thanks for inspiring us all, and I can't wait to have the pleasure of visiting your "escape" some day soon.

Cheese and crackers!! I've been sittin here since 5/1, the day I first saw the updated pix, just goin whoa!! I was stunned! Absolutely top notch! I can hear Denny and ice melting.
On a personal note-your first pix inspired me to go the whole enchilada and redo the dining room all tiki all the time. The lanai has always been tiki, but now it's sprawling.
Thanks for all the tips you share with all us do it yerselfers! You should have classes on all the cool stuff you did. I'd pay!! Do you take Home Depot credit cards...?

I just want to say that I absolutely love your house. The night shots are amazing and the lighting is perfect. I can't even imagine what the inside looks like and the future projects will be like.

Aloha Ona,

Your Palapa's did they come as a kit? If so did they include the center pole, or did you have to locate that yourself? And lastly who and where did you get them from?

Oh and the legal question, do they come flame retarded already?

Erick

WOW...this is what all tiki bars aspire to be! I just can't afford this much tiki & I can't carve fast enough. Maybe I'll get to this stage by the time I retire. THANKS for sharing.

What's the story on this Tiki in the foreground? Carved? Cast? Sculpted? Could you post a close up of this one? It's awesome !

It's a birdbath!!



It's cast concrete and we bought it about 4 years ago at Armstong nursery here in San Diego. I've seen some people use it as a planter also.

Thanks for all the kind words. Keeps us motivated.

Aloha!!

Hey Ona - WOW! is there anything left to do? We were talking at the Oasis and you guys had just finished the patio bar! What an amazing space, I had no idea that you had done so much prior to the patio.

Our house is about 75% of where we want it to be, (the baby's room is all that's left) and it's really great to see someone else's timeline.

The other day I had a lamp delivered to the office and everyone was asking what was in the big box, and when I tell them, they roll their eyes and say stuff like "I don't even want to KNOW what your house looks like..." OHHH, you'd be pretty impressed, I THINK

'Lay-people' assume tiki means tacky, which is funny, because of all the TC home bars I've seen, I've never seen anything tacky, just beautiful, creative and artistic. It was really gratifying this past weekend, we had a wedding shower and no one but the bride had been to our house before (she was our 'minister' at the Oasis wedding, so she knows...) But it was really great how all of her friends, in-laws, etc. LOVED our house, bar, art, etc. And I can guess that they would have been eye rollers, if told the party was at a house that was 'tiki'.

You've set the bar (pun intended) pretty high, and I for one REALLY appreciate it!

We will make it down to SD, not for the party, but someday!

Mrs. Pineapple
