Lee,
I wish you only the best out of this bad situation. Your room is/was amazing, and will be remembered here forever on TC! Someone else said it(Bongo Bungalow), but it was a good point...YOU created it, and can doit again. It was the room YOU built, and I'm sure it will be back sooner than we all think!
Godspeed, and best wishes brotha!
-Tom

Sorry to hear the bad news. Just look at this setback as another opportunity for bigger and better things. A new chapter, as it were. I know that's easy for me to say. Really hoping for the best for you guys.

Not sure if it applies to you, nor if the legislation has yet been activated, but I heard that people who were at least 3 months behind on their mortgages would be eligible for anti-forclosure protection. Have you checked into that?

I agree Lee, The image of the Phoenix comes to mind. I pray for new open doors for you.
Blessings.

Wow Lee! I'm so sorry. Your room was amazing, and I know you'll soon find another place to create something equally fabulous! Good thing you'll have Frankie's nearby to quench that thirst for good tiki. I'm planning a trip to Vegas in January. Would love to hook up with you and your wife for a drink while I'm there. I'll PM when I have details nailed down. Best wishes to you.

My heart goes out to you Lee. I know you probably have those in your life who are going to tell you not to worry, that you will be fine in the long run. You definitely will be fine but allow yourself to be sad for a while. Its not self indulgent. You lost something you cared about.

And look at it this way. The funnest thing about a Tiki room is putting it together. You will eventually get to make a new Tiki room, you will learn from the mistakes you made when you did the first one, and you will put together and even better LEE'S TIKI ROOM VERSION 2.0!

Hate to hear that Lee. Stephanie and I are in a similar boat. We have an ARM that hits the 2 year mark in February. Our market has been stable, so, we're in reasonable shape, except the damn market keeps changing. We just found out they are not doing any 100% refi's now and we have to figure out how to get 5% plus closing costs saved by by then. Great. Nice notice. But, who knows where things will stand then. So, work on our bar has pretty much stopped. Not spending any more for a while.

Hope you guys land on solid ground.

Well, the recession has claimed another forclosure victim, and I am sad to say that my wife and I are losing our house, and our Tiki Room with it. Thanks for all your kind compliments over the span of this post. If any of you want to come by and take a peek in person before it all goes away in December, then just let me know and we'll try to hook up before it gets packed away in storage once again for another unknown number of years.

At least my shop at The Charleston Antique Mall will stay open. I guess it's gonna have a great new influx of product really soon...

Mahaloz Friends.




Damn!- I'm sorry to hear it. i just saw your invitation from a few months ago. i hope you bounce back soon! -Smiley

Thanks Everybody...

It's so hard to even imagine a "phoenix-type" redo of the room because things are so difficult right now, but thanks for the positive energy anyway.

Since we are going to have to rent from now on, I seriously doubt that the landlord would ever let me do something this extensively tiki to his house. It just won't be the same, so I probably won't even try to make a tiki room. A piece might go here and there, but the glowing cozy atmosphere will be lost to the ages.

Thank God for Frankie's. At least I can go visit a cool tiki room when I get homesick...
