Ona ~ to quote a wiseman, "that's dope yo!" Good job. When's the party?

I'm currently in the process of working my backyard (well, kind of)... if you don't mind me asking, how long did this tranformation take? Did you do the work yourself? How much coin did you actually spend (if you don't mind sharing)? And lastly, who carved the tikis?

Great job! We had a sneak preview a few months back and you could see how nice it was going to be. As we were looking for the address I jokingly said to Mrs. Fury " just look for a big Tiki in the front yard" .....no joke! There it was! The inside of the house is just as cool/tropical as the outside. A great team effort by the OnaTikis. Love the lighting.........

Thanks for all the great feedback. It makes us feel warm and fuzzy

You are all welcome to visit or stay over anytime. We have a guest room that is always ready.

As for the work, we did it all ourselves. It started when we moved in and we've also remodeled the inside of our house and the granny flat over the garage. It has been a labor of love. Pretty constant for the last three years. We've kept all our receipts and maybe one day we'll be brave enough to add them up to see what we've actually spent. At this point, lots!!

The tikis were carved by Tiki Dan, with the exception of a few. The mural was painted by local artist Nancy Isbell.

We're hoping to have a party by the end of summer once the other half of the back yard is finished and we can celebrate the opening of the new 'Ona Tiki Lounge (we're moving it from across the yard) It will be bigger and better.

Mahalo,

Onatiki, are you in San Diego? I'm new to the forum and just moved to Carlsbad/La Costa. My fiance and I are looking to completely gut and redo our entire landscaping front and back and are looking for recommendations for landscapers, nurseries, pool companies, etc that people here might have used/recommend. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance for any help...

Josh

Your house is beautiful and your landscaping is out of this world! Are you for hire?
