Thanks again everyone. BambooBen- The sheriff has not been as friendly once the hut could be seen over the fence. We will have him over once we get things close to done to show him that we aren't doing human sacrifices although Mrs. Fury told him we buried our ex's under the new driveway. Benzart- yes, we thought if we lost the house in an earthquake we would be safe out back. We took out all of the plants and grass, so we are planting as construction is out of the way. We had a lot of plants in pots from our last house and last year we bought a bunch more when a local nursury went out of business (small plants= $1.50, 1 gallon=$6.00, & 5 gallon=$15.00). Lake Surfer-The surfboards are from the early 80s, both 6'7" single fin. The torches I got about 3 years ago. Vintage look, but they also have a low voltage path light underneath. MaiTiki-It will be our Oasis from work. Monkeyman-Onatiki has been a big help, we hope to have him back after rough inspection so we can make better progress. He usually started at 8:00am and worked til dark, then it was beer, dinner, beer, and bed. No messin around! Here are more pics of the yard/house.

looking back to the house from the bar. we added the trapezoid window above the living room window (over bbq) to let in more light. The slider was moved from where the window on the left is. before you had to squeeze around the dining table to get outside, better flow now and we added planters to both sides of the door for the palm trees. The stone will eventually cover the block on the bbq.
