how did you build the stone tiki head?



It's a 7' sono-tube filled with concrete, wire mesh is then applied to the outside to shape it. Several more coats of concrete, texture it, color it and you're done. Instant Moai !

suuuuweeeet!

Hello again my friends, it was great meeting you 2!

I love your pix of your casa and will for sure be by to spend a night in da hut out back! That little opened area looks like I could just melt in those nice lounge chairs and get no carving done!

Hope you had fun in paradise and will see you guys again!

Aloha

That is truly an awesome transformation!!! Makes me wish we didn't live in a neighborhood with a homeowner's association. As much as I would love it, I know we could never convince them to let us have a large tiki in the front yard. I also really like the carving details on your deck posts and trim. I'm sure the backyard will be equally great when you're finished. Great work! We'd like to stop sometime, if you don't mind, and check it out in person.

What a KILLER job. I especially dig the lighting. It looks super good at night. If it was a restaurant or a bar, I'd pay money to get in!

I was looking at the Nikon at Costco today and thought of the two of you. I think I may have to go back tomorrow and buy it. I love how the pics came out.

Are you going to post anything from Hawaii or should I go first?

The yard is amazing. Are you going to put up some shots of the interior? I'd like to see how you display your newest aquisitions.

Aloha,
Kate

I want you to adopt me or at least give me the den with a fold out couch. Those pictures effing ROCK! but what about the inside of the house? Is it the next project or what? I'm dying to know. Well not dying per-se. But you know what I mean... spill the beans my man.

Holy Crap!

how did I miss this post for so long?

Anyway, seeing such a beautiful finished project like that makes me wanna just give up. You have set a new high standard for backyards...

BTW, did I see a fire pit? is it natural gas? Excellent idea... please give some details on how you put it together.

Wow, you really should contact HGTV about that extreme makeover!

I feel inspired to create an Oasis like that! The volcano next to the pool, what is that? Is that real water going into the pool or is it, painted to look like it?

The mural is wonderful, and I agree Monster House has NOTHING on you! But I imagine yours took more then 5 days.

Yes, that is a fire pit. Natural gas line with a burner from BBQ's Galore covered by Lava rock.

Unc.....Yes the inside is finished. We'll get those pics up soon. You are always welcome.

Here's the pics of the 'Ona Tiki Lounge as it is today.


Can you hear the jungle drums? What's that off in the the distance?


getting closer....


You have arrived! Would you like a Mai Tai? Have a look around.


Some of our collection of carved treasures. Anybody recognize the carver of the large one with the red eyes?


















Thanks for coming. Hope you enjoyed your mai tais.
