Damn! That has got to be one of the best home bars ever! Great touches, great features, an all around wonderful design. Amazing.

Thanks for all the wonderfully supportive replies! And thanks for posting those great photos Sweet Daddy Tiki. Your camera sure makes it seem brighter than it is, and that makes it fantastic at capturing all the little details with little light.

It's definitely been a labour of love, but it's nice to hear the kudos from all you folks. Especially those of you who have such wonderful tiki rooms yourselves.

And to answer Bongofury's question: yes that PNG lamp was home-made. I'm happy you like it.

Still a few updates to come. I'll make sure to post pix when the spring time allows me to work outside again and carve up my A-frame post for the entrance.

You made that lamp? I assume you're talking about this one



You're one talented fella. Would you make me one? (I know you're not very busy )

Yeah, these new-fangled digital cameras have crazy low-light capabilities. Like I said, next time I'll bring a tripod and do some manual exposures - I'd like to make it look a little closer to what the eye sees.

Cheers.

Incredible room Slacks!! Great job!!

At the end of July I'm driving across the country en route to my new home in southern Ontario. I'll be spending two nights in Calgary. Any chance I could have a first hand peek at the fabulous Kanaloa Lounge? We're resurrecting the Huki Lounge in our new rumpus room, and your photo journey has been such great inspiration.

Mahalo Nui Loa,

Tw

The Kanaloa Lounge is magnificent! Its features and layout are sheer tiki artistry, something difficult for a mere engineer like myself to independently imagine...

Yeah. It'd be cool to have you here TW. I just hope I'm in town when you are. Shoot me a PM when you get the dates figured out.

Southern Ontario huh? There's no palm trees there...

Hmm, not sure of the brand names of the paint, but i just walked into my local hardware store and asked them about latex paint for cement floors. The lava wall uses plain ol' latex house paint ( i bought it as a mistint)...I hope that helps.
