There have been several recent articles in Florida newspapers regarding Tiki/Chickee huts.
It appears that you do not need a permit (but you still have to follow zoning)
IF
Your hut is constructed by either the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida or the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

Kind of a nice touch since I hear that they use building methods passed down from generation to generation.

If you live in Florida, this might be a good thing to know if you are in one of those rule heavy communities.

I am not a construction lawyer nor do I play on on TV.

Check your local laws.

You probably have more problems if your community is deed restricted. Some of the 'neighborhood watch' just hate it if you're having more fun than they are.

The State of Florida building law also states that you can not have electric or plumbing in the hut constructed by the indians(without a permit). So just have a licensed building contractor to make it for you, like me. Tiki Mike 321-626-2434

Check with your local government as well..... In Hollywood you have to have a permit if it is a permanent structure regardless of who built it.

I got around that by redesigning my idea and not attaching it to the ground. Since it could be moved (yeah right!) I didn't have to have a permit.

Here it is almost done. (pix from 04)

Is this why there are several thousand tiki bars in Florida? I know about the Mai Kai, how about a look at some of the others.

I thought everyone knew the answer to this already. There are not "several thousand" tiki bars in Florida. There is the Mai-Kai,
Hawaiian Inn in Daytona, the (infamous) Waitiki in Orlando and the mostly forgettable Trader Vic's in Destin. That's about it. The thousands of so-called "tiki bars" are just tropical-styled bars with no real connection whatsoever to mid-century tiki.

Rob you forgot a big one - Polynesian Resort in Disney World!! My original tiki experience in 1974ish. Spent a week there every summer in my youth. Not many people like to include it, but it was part of Uncle Walt's original vision.

In Florida if it has a thatch roof it is "advertised" as tiki bar. I even have a place next to my house that bills themselves as having a tiki bar and its just a bar outside (without thatch). Thank goodness I have the Mai Kai!!

Chip or Andy,

Since your hut is "movable" and not secured, what do you do
when the hurricane warnings come?

Move everything else.

The thing has to weigh a ton, and I mean literally. If we get a storm big enough to blow that thing into the pool, the hut is going to be the least of my worries.

True, but it also has lots of little kids running around in Mickey ears. Kind of ruins it.

It's been my experience that if a bar is just outside it is referred to as a "tiki bar". If you can spot thatch, a tiki or even something that is Polynesian (and not Caribbean) consider yourself lucky.

Hey everyone!
I have been looking for something like this, and I found this one
http://www.palmhuts.com/ but I am not sure about the quality or the origin of their offering.
Has anyone have looked into this before? If you have any other options you know are worth the time to check out, please post them here. Thanks!
