I'd just like to add that the RongoRongo Room kicks Okole! I had the pleasure of a visit in March, and can't wait to relax in tiki heaven again this June!
Thanks for the great step-by-step pics, your bar is perfect!

Love the bar!

East facing windows will offer enough light to grow orchids. Orchids are exotic enough to add beauty to the room and can be found cheap enough that if they die you can get more.

Seattle had a big windstorm on Dec 14th, and we've been without electricity for 7+ days. and we had flooding in the basement level so we've been staying at the Downtown Red Lion. (including Trader Pup, who enjoys being an Urban Canine)

the water damage specialists came and i left the house because it was warmer to sit in my jeep. and honestly i didnt want to know what they were doing.

they took out the carpet, linoleum, baseboards, they cut into the walls removing 12" of sheetrock along most of the walls. mygod, they moved an entire shelf of tiki mugs without taking anything off.. it was wobbly just sitting there in the middle of the room. so i packed up the mugs...and brought all the booze upstairs..everytime they dropped a crowbar, i winced. half the furniture from the Rongorongo Room is in my living room, there are giant fans blowing and dehumidifiers running for the next 72 hours.

so another home tiki bar has been taken down and wont be put back together for at least 7 weeks. drains must be installed along the back wall which will require jackhammers in my house. swell.

at least i'll be able to update my pictures, and hopefully the RongoRongo Room will rise to glory again. soon.

Not the RongoRongo Room! Say it ain't so!

If there's anything I can do to help, give me a call.

thanks all ~ our power was restored at 4:30 this afternoon. my "stuff" is all ok, its just the house that was water damaged.

the clean-up crew did an amazing amount of wall/flooring/baseboard removal especially with so much stuff to move out of the way. they worked for 10 hours ~ and hauled all the debris away. they worked in the cold, damp rooms ~ they used light fueled by a generator.

todd n i emptied the bar and packed up the mugs, and they asked 'are those steins or somthing?" so i got to explain tiki mugs, easter island and hawaiian things. heh, he thought we were afraid to let them move the booze.. but its the ceramics we were worried about!

we'll just celebrate christmas in February. so ya'll have time to wrap a gift for me.

Hey Lady!
Let me know if there's anything I can do for you.
I didnt have any damage thank goodness, but I was out from Thurs-Mon. which sucked.
I will try my darned-est to get my dang house in shape so everyone can come over and be warm and dry and share some Burien Hooch outta the Ohana Hut.

What a drag! I'm so sorry. Nobody ever sings "...I'm dreaming of a Wet Christmas..."

I'll keep my fingers crossed everything gets back to normal quickly. Please post a picture of Trader Pup in a Santa Hat so we know your holidays are still merry. You know, something like this...

a few pix of the room ~ it'll be a mess till feb, then the drains will be installed, then the flooring and walls will be restored. the worst damage is in my computer room. still feeling very lucky that none of the stuff was harmed.
