Very, very cool. You must be stoked! You know it'll be fun to fit it out with art and knick-knacks. Looks real good. Betcha' start on the bar before next year.

Nice job man! The total's a little scary. Was the bulk of the budget spent on bamboo?

Red Sox fans drink free!

Yeah, that does seem like alot but Mrs. Pappy keeps the books and she lives for that kind of stuff. Biggest single expense was carpet, then plasterer, then bamboo, then probably the electrician, then grass mats and lauhala, then lumber. Gosh, I'm starting to upset myself! If I can help you with yours, just say the word.

got any leftover matting?

It looks great Pappy. I want to do something similar on my walls with matting, but it has been low priority. My carpet was cheap (under $200) because we scored carpet tiles at Mardens that I laid myself. And Mardens is butt cheap. They're a surplus joint.

Eventually a tiki pull for that door to the fusebox.


What about working in a little Kustom Kulture, like a Giant Flying Eyeball doorknob?

Add some coathanger-and-stocking wings, et voila!

wow. Just today i read this entire thread and reviewed all the pics. Very very well done. Now i'm just 18 and all, but i'm an artist, so i was wondering if i could point some things out and make a few suggestions. Anyways, the first thing that would probably look very Hawaii-esque is deffinately put some of those shields with the 2 spears behind em, that'd be pretty neat. The 2nd thought is a possible bamboo beaded curtain to go infront of those stairs (Sorry but those stairs sort of kill the aura). I seem to be ranting, sorry. A Third idea is deffinately some authentic palm plants around the room, probably in the corners. Anyways, thos are my tips that i thought of at the moment. You're doing a great job! And from one Bostonian to another, Pahk the Cah in Havahd Yahd.

Freddie--I dunno if I wanna mix themes!

JohnnyP --You're right but I have lay low with the spending for awhile.

Ben--thank and you're right.

Pocky-- believe me, I got lots of ideas

TikiLaLe--thank you!

P.S. It occured to me that I obviously didn't lay the carpet myself either. First drink in the Bora Bora basement: Zombie. First album played: (What else?) Voodoo by Robert Drasnin. Also Mrs. Pappy says it turned out much better than she feared so happy, happy, happy!

Now let's focus on johnman and the Krakatoa Room! johnman?

I hear ya pappy. I'll probably get things rolling early summer and you're most certainly welcome to help out.

Can't wait to get over to your place. Hopefully we can get something going after Kowloon.

NICE!!!!!

Place is lookin really groovy pappy. Can't wait to see it in person!

As far as the expense, I hear ya there! Part of the reason why mine took 18 - 24 months to get where its at (and still no sink or permanent bar!)

Now just watch the bills add up as you buy crap to fill it with!! "Enchanted tiki room drummer replicas? need 2 of those...ANOTHER limited edition mug from tiki farm for $50?? need a few of those...Oh, and 3 more from munktiki? need those too.....a genuine Leeteg velvet painting on ebay for only $600...need that....heh heh.

If Jess had any clue how much was REALLY tied up in the bar...I'd prob be sleeping there on a regular basis!

Let me know when you'll be pouring for guests...i'll be there in a heartbeat!

PS LOVE the sconses.

Great job Pappy!

I wanted to chime in on your earlier question about the necessity of a sink in a working bar. When Mr. cheeky half and I bought our house it had a bar already built in (part of the reason why we bought it.) The bar had a small fridge, but no sink. I would be much happier and the bar would get even more use if it had a sink. It's not just the glasses that have to get cleaned, but also the cocktail shakers and strainer, especially if people are drinking very different types of cocktails. I find that if we have over lets say 8 people and each person has 2-3 drinks that's 16-24 glasses that sit dirty on the bar unless someone takes them to the kitchen and a shaker that needs rinsing out probably 15 times. Anyway, every time I think we may be getting closer to getting a sink installed something else comes along that takes precedence and well......

So my 2 cents would be to install the bar when you can put the sink in as well. Of course right now probably the last thing you want to think about is more work or spending more money. So don't. Enjoy what you've created, it's a thing of beauty.
