Nice room to start with, will you leave the windows exposed or covered over?

Derek, are you taking out the fireplace feature altogether , or just making a new, more tiki-style one?

Thanks for your questions.. I didnt think anyone would bother to look at this since these are kinda pics of "nothing"...

Im going to replace all the windows in the room with newer energy efficient windows, Im removing the sliding glass door, Im having a large double french door installed where the fireplace was.

There wont be a fireplace in this room when its done. there is a really nice view out the back of the house (onto a tropical landscaped pool) but the former owner of my house had a view of BRICKS instead of their pool.

This will open up the back of the house and be a natural segue to the backyard area where my standalone tiki hut will be.

Thanks for looking. Im running phone line, cat5, and coaxial cable in the walls right now. The entire house will be connected to the LAN and thus I will be able to play the same music throughout the entire house without running speaker wire.

it should be cool

Looks like a nice large space, and as another poster said, the ceiling has lots of potential.
Good luck!

I love how this forum is inspiring folks. At first I thought...OMG don't demolish the fireplace, but replacing it with a tropical view of your yard...BRILLIANT!!! I enjoy watching the transformation from room to exotic lounge...fun.

I really dig that Blue but I bet you won't keep it for your tiki room. Your blue room looks pretty close to my living room

I've been wondering if you started this room yet! I hope you continue to post progress pics. You're a detailed craftsman, I'm sure the place will turn out amazing.

Hey Derek, Your room reminds me a lot of ours here. Same vaulted ceiling except our beams are wood tone and the ceiling wasn't painted, it had the popcorn stuff so we covered it with reed fencing. That fireplace..woah, I thought ours was ugly!
Nice to see it go and it's great to see you getting the kids involved. I know you will kick this room into shape. After all, if you survived your Eagle scout project, you can do this easy!
If we were closer to each other I'd come over and give you a hand. Good Luck, keep the progress shots coming. 8FT

Today Im removing more of the drywall so that the new Windows and Doors can be installed this week.


Running Cat5, Coax Cable and Phone line into the room for web, music, entertainment access. I still need to run my in wall speaker wire and decide on speaker placement in the room today.


These are the LowE double paned vinyl windows for the south wall. The LowE double paned Fiberglass double French Doors are sitting just outside the sliding glass door right now.


Just as when I ripped apart my old kitchen and get into the walls... I found critters. There were four dead birds inside the walls, and one dead rat.


For those of you who were wondering why I would rip out the fireplace... this is why. This will be the view when the french doors are installed


More to come....

Awesome view onto the pool. Hopefully the kids are old enough for you to rip out the fence. That would bring things to a whole new level!

Very nice. You have a lot of work to do, but that's a great project to work on.
