Aloha friends - well, my wife Valerie never ceases to amaze me. She's always been into woodworking, but now she's really outdone herself!
3 months in the making, 1 major illness along the way, 2 trips to Oceanic Arts and about 100 trips to Home Depot.....and finally --- Milana's little grass shack is finished! Our 4 year old daughter is gonna love spending time in here.
There's not a thing that she didn't do entirely by herself. I basically just provided the uke accompaniment for inspiration, while sittin on my butt.
Now if I can talk my wife into building me a thatched hut recording studio....

That looks great, reminds me of McHale's Island, where do you hitch up the PT boat?

That's just beautiful.
Once again I'm happy to discover the eye for detail people on Tiki Central have and the desire to see a project done in an exceptional manner.
Of course your problem now is your missus did this for your four year old...The bar has been set pretty high for future projects.

Tony & Valerie,
It was nice meeting you at Amy's party on Friday night. My wife & I had only viewed Milana's little grass shack on my blackberry screen. Now that we have viewed it on a bigger screen you can really see all the detail. Valerie did an awesome job.

Nice work! And think, if you ever end up in the "dog house" it's a pretty swank place to be.

WOW!!! That is fabulous...your wife is quite a talent. I'm lucky if I can file my nails evenly. What a great accomplishment. Would love to see the inside...wink wink.
