I am building a large bar and have gotten to the point where I need to add the Thatch roof. My problem is I cannot find long and heavy bamboo poles to support the roof. Any ideas

Thanks

Welcome to TC EMAN! There are a lot of threads concerning home bars, Tiki Bars inside and outside. I would recommend using the bamboo not as structural, but as aesthetic either wrapped around the structural beams, as opposed to being the beams themselves. Buying enough bamboo beams to build a larger bar would set you back quite a few sheckles. Average price for stock over 8 " dia X 8 foot in length = Approx $40.00 ea. delivered. Just look around this site and see all the ideas. Welcome again.

Where are you from? If you live down south this stuff grows very well here.

This was growing outside an apartment complex in the city and my husband inquired at the office and they told him to take whatever he wanted. SCORE!
