First of all, thanks to everyone for all the wonderful comments. It's makes the effort we put into this all worth while.

We can't wait for the party either. We are hoping for late June or early July. All will be invited and we hope to see many of you here.

Lake Surfer-The only thing that could make it better is one of your poles in the bar.

Kahaka- Thanks bro! Keep those lamps coming.

Slacks, Hala, Dawn & Feelin Z- Thanks!!

DocWoods- Thanks Doc, we are very proud.

Ben- Don't tell the Mai Kai. Why you outing us??!! When are you coming out? Your room is still waiting!

Pop- End of June/Early July

No Clue- Yes... there were no forms used. Most of it was free formed. The wire mesh is the kind used for tile work. You can find it at your local building supply (Home Depot)

Tiki-Bot- Yes, this is our back yard. The roof over the bar is formed by the deck above that is attached to the granny flat above the garage. The view into the bar is from our back door of the house leading onto the patio.

Mermaidhouse- The barstools were from Wacky Wicker on Mira Mesa Blvd. They had lots of fabric and other style to choose from.

Dr. Shocker - I am the regular drunk, but occasionaly would enjoy the company another drunk.

MM - You will never be charged admission!!


Thanks again to all. Glad we could finally share. We'll post more pics once the patio is done.

Mahalo!!

Hate to be a pest, but since you are apparently North County and we are East County, I'd like to pick your brains on vendors (like the barstools). Where did you get the thatch fringe on your overhang (OA?) - it looks like you covered the top with split bamboo - OA also?

Your talent is unbelievable, and the ability to get so much done in such a short period of time is beyond me. Hope to see it in person some day!

Mermaidhouse- We're not in North County, we're San Diego proper. The split bamboo and the thatch was purchased at Solai bamboo on Morena Blvd. You can find their info in the locating tiki forum.

The thatch comes 30" wide and you buy it by the foot. We just cut it in half height wise and nailed the bamboo over the top to hide the edge.

If you need anymore info, drop us a PM.

Aloha

Yeah - it's pretty good and all...

...but it's missing something.


Hmmmmmm - let's see.

Oh, I know - it's missing a big, fat uke player/singer with a massive thirst for rum.

Love the sea turtle. Is that rubber, cement, plaster, pained wood?
I live in Sacramento so my plant choises are a little more restricted, but I am working on what was our pool area here in the apartments. When it was beyond repair they filled it in and made it a giant planter. It now has queen palm, windmill palm,pigmy date palm, blood banana,hibiscus, brugmansia, cannas, morea, hot pink pelorgoniums, blue potato tree,taro, bird of paradise and butterfly ginger with blue day flower as a ground cover. Now it just needs to mature a bit and I need to hang some tiki plaques on the fence and The Tiki Garden will be open for business by the 4th of July 4.
