Does that light generate any heat? I only ask because of the proximity of the light to possible flammable materials.

Be careful, it'd be horrible of this palce were suffer any damage from a fire.

You've done an amazing job!

TikiGardener: the bulb in the lamp is a standard MR16 halogen bulb, so while it does put out a bit more heat than, say, an incandescent bulb, it's not presenting a fire hazard. The photos don't quite capture the breathing room the fixture has from either the thatch on the ceiling or directly in front of it. The (relatively) low heat MR16 bulb was definitely a consideration when I was looking at ellipsoidal lights (size was the other, perhaps main consideration).
Thanks for the thought, and just in case...we've got 3 smoke detectors, 3 fire extinguishers & plenty of insurance!
Turbogod: gotta consult with the wahine as to when the unveiling for local tikiphiles will be...keep an eye on the marylanddctiki boards
peace,
Scottiki

Actually, the bamboo bridge entrance doesn't currently cross over anything...I'm thinking about a small, fake river of lava.
Anyone ever try making a glowing fake lava flow, you know, like those cheesy electric fire logs? I'm trying to figure out how to achieve the glowing effect...
Thanks again for the incredibly kind words...I'm just happy to be able to share what I've learned from others here on TC!

peace,
Scott

Just wondering if you would mind telling me how tall the bar stools are and your bar height. Just trying to get some ideas for my deck.

Thanks

Rodeo: Stools are 31" including seat cushions, and bar is 44" high.
Thanks for asking!
peace,
Scottiki
