That looks great man - kool project!

Did you go with the corrugated iron/steel roof? If so, how did you attach the matting underneath.

I am gonna have to remember this for when I get my own place - I want one!

Hewey:
I made a frame like this out of 5cmx15cm and 5 x 10cm lumber

there it is after I put it on the existing 10x10cm supports

then I put 2.5x 5cm boards every 60cm or so. These are where I attatched with screws the mats up to the ceiling, and screwed the tin roof down on to.

Looking up to the ceiling, this is the framework that I could attach the two mats to

I covered the seam of the two mats with a 11cm wide piece of split bamboo. The other large ones help keep the mats held up to the ceiling between the screwed in spots. The small bamboo covered the screws where I stuck the mats to the 2.5 x 5cm wood. The bamboo around the edges hid the seam between the mats and the wood.

i was able to screw the corrugated roofing down tothe original frame and the smaller cross pieces. The dots on this drawing show where I was able to affix the sheeting with screws. Then I put the ridge piece up. the whole roof was then covered with thatch.

I split the bamboo and used it to cover the screws where I attached the ceiling mats. The bamboo will also help hold up the mats

Easier than it looks, and it looks easy...

Go for it when you get own place! I'll fly down there and help ya when your ready...
Buzzy

Buzzy regarding the black bamboo panel, is it real black bamboo and if not how do they weather being out all year round, do you have any idea. I was thinking of buying some?

Hiltiki: I went down and visited some pals at the wholesale bamboo yard today and asked them several questions on your behalf. Here is what I remember:
The colored panels are made from regular bamboo, and are stained with a mahogany stain, and then coated with a clear sealer. According to the wholesaler, the life expectancy of these bamboo panels is 20 years. However, it will be necessary to recoat them with an outdoor wood sealer every 3-5 years, as needed. Many evironmental factors will affect the lifespan of the bamboo too.
Most black bamboo is very small and slow growing, hence its rarity as a building material. There are large bamboo poles available that are actually regular bamboo airbrushed by a painter to look like giant black bamboo. I've also seen red and green painted poles too.
Usually the panels come in 6x8 and 8x8 sections, in any color you desire. Ive actually seen pink bamboo...
Any more questions, let me know, I'm going back tomorrow.
Buzzy

I had to bump this thread cuz Buzzy's awesome project, complete with his drawings, has solved my problem!!
As some of you may know, the city of laGOONa hills has made us tear down our palapa do to no permits for such an oversized structure. The Mr has been submitting drawing after drawing to the project manager (me!), each more elaborate (expensive) than the last. Now I know why the damn thing got too big in the first place.
Anyhoo... I was actually searching for bamboo fence and this thread came up. I was amazed to see my fragmented ideas all summed up nicely and drawn out and explained clearly! Even the Mr got it! Perfect! So simple...duh!
So we are rebuilding this weekend almost exactly like Buzzy's project. I just wanted to give a public thank you to Buzzy for sharing his knowledge so freely. We will be having a big fat obnoxious Luau this Spring/Summer, benefiting my asscrack neighbors! Buzzy, you are most def invited! You will be wearing the special distinction of honor...something great. Actually, I'll have to get back to you on what that is- I have yet to think of what it will be, but it will be royal. Maybe that cool hat thingy King Kamehamaha(sp?) wore. And rum. You get lots o rum.
THANK YOU!

Hau 'oli Tiki, yes, Buzzy is very creative and an excellent teacher. He can make the most complicated things seem very simple so anyone can do it. I wanted to show you pictures of how the Tropical Patio turned out in the end. These were taken the last time we were up at Hiltiki's house. I think they'll get you excited about the outcome of your own patio!













Here's one of Hiltiki and I enjoying the embiance of this wonderful place at night!


Enjoy!! I'm looking forward to seeing how yours turns out. Definitely post some pictures!

Good luck!
Zaya

Hey Buz,

Extra cool! Real nice work.

This stuff is fun stuff to play with huh. I really like that black bamboo too...if I could have only found 4" diameter.

Is the carving one of yours?

Time to rebuild the rebuild I did a few years ago...

One last look before it goes bye bye:



All gone!

Old hut was about 7 x 8'. New footprint is 10 x 14'

Construction time!

First day's action. New floor down, poles set, and waiting for a roof:


Rough sketch of where it's going:




Roof and fun stuff next!
Buzzy Out!
