Monday I embark on a fairly significant bar building project. My first in fact. You can see from the "before", picture here that I have sort of Tikified a typical outdoor furniture bar. This has served me pretty well for years but The Shack deserves better. No bamboo on this bar. Certainly a problem.. No beer on tap. Bigger problem. In the coming 3 weeks I will depict the progress and transformation.

Nice progress Fink - looking forward to testing your Rotting Zombie here in the near future.


Who says outdoor tiki bars are seasonal here in Colorado?

Friends Gayle and Dan. And the Hostess..




Day time shots pre bamboo. More to come!!

Looks great - I see you took the draft tower off the kegerator and installed it on the bar top. Did you insulate the supply line or rig a way for cold air to blow into the tower to keep the beer from foaming?

I use a cold pack in the beer tower and otherwise the lines do not extend very far from the top of the kegerator.
