I know that I am not that skilled at construction, but I knew that I wanted some sort of bamboo structure in my backyard for my luaus and tiki gatherings. At my local Spring & Garden show, I recently found a company called Oriental Garden Furniture in the Bay area that delivers and installs pre-fabricated bamboo structures. Since they own the factory in the Philippines, they can keep their costs down. After a lot of soul searching and budget analysis, I agreed to get one of their structures. I haven't had the opportunity to have a party yet (due to the wet and cold weather hanging around), but everyone who has seen, and sat, in my new bamboo room has loved it. I am still gathering decorations.. tikis, glass floats, tapa cloth, etc, for it, so it looks a little plain in these pictures.

The structure of the hut is made from mahogany and bamboo. The outside dimensions are 10.5' x 9.5', with the floor being 6 x 8. I believe the ceiling height is 13'. Included in the price of the unit (around $3500.00) is delivery and construction. You just need to provide a level space. I know they have different sizes and shapes to their products. I opted for the largest they offer; seating 12 - 14 persons. This hut is solid.. I am not a small guy and I feel VERY comfortable in it. The roof construction materials are waterproof and fire retardant. Everything has a good coat of urethane.

I can't wait to have my first tiki gathering! The hut comes with a hanging lamp (I am going to try to create one of my own), but I also purchased some seat cushions offered by OGF for an additional cost. I plan to get some hawaiian print pillows to support your back, but the bamboo seat backs are very comfortable and don't need pillows. Anyway, here are some pictures.
