wow! Really looking great. I love the ceiling work
I had the same problems with the 50 ft roll of matting too. I wanted to pull my hair out by the time I had finished installing that stuff.

Thanks bullet & everyone else. Its really coming along nicely. I'll post some more pics tonight or tomorrow.

In the meantime, I wanted to give everyone a heads up about the grand re-opening party on Oct. 21st.

I want to invite anyone who can make it to at least stop on by and have a drink with me.

Waitiki is set to play a few sets, and it should be a hoot & a half.

Thank you so much for all the love & support.

Official invite is here:

Ok, here's some more progress pics.

With the big re-opening party just 3 weeks away, there's still ALOT of work to be done!!

First, here's the care package Kingstiedye sent me to help redecorate...



Thanks bullet!! Super cool of you to help out. That package totally made my day! They'll get places of honor when the rebuild is complete.

On to the build out.... to install the lower wall (a 3' bamboo fence) I had to first attach some 2x4s to the wall...



Then paint them so you cant see em thru the gaps in the fence...



Repeat a zillion times, and you're ready to attach the fence to the wall....




Used 3" caps to top the fence, and some 3" half-rounds to hide the seams on the matting.


And although its waaaay to early to hang shelving, I had to see what the tiki room drummers looked like on the wall....


More to come soon!!

and here's the link to the party invite if anyone wants to come...

That is looking awesome! I'm just curious, why did you need the 2 by 4's under the bamboo fencing? I would like to try something like that with my lauhala matting and you've definitely got it figured.
