this is Matt the Cat, not tikimookie,

Looks great! I hope it survives the Reno winters though. Will you cover it or pull it down?

Really nice job!

To answer the questions...

I bought the grass here:
http://www.islandthatch.com/ They arranged for the truck-shipping.

The hardest part of carving with foam is finding the foam! You'll need to do a little research to see if it's available in your area.

Depending on the year, our winters can be brutal, so all the grass, matting, bamboo will be stored for the winter - will come down in October probably. The wood structure is weatherproofed and will remain until the bar lives again in the spring!

Impressive! Designer, carpenter, and carver... looks like this combination of skills has been put to good use. Great way to spend a few weekends, huh? Let the good times roll!

Great looking deck! That's on my agenda to do outside as well, but my dreams have to wait on the budget to catch up with them. Love the router work on the uprights. (I "borrowed" the same design from TikiMike for my patio.)

Terrific job. Hard work pays off. I'd love to sit out there. Why don't you come down for a day and join in on the Sacramento Tiki Crawl. Maybe it would inspire you to start one in your area that we could attend. Check it out under California Events author Psycho Tiki D. It's in October and get bigger and better every year. Wendy

Fun pictures, I love the transformation. That turned out really nice! I see my husband posted under my username He lived in Reno for a while... Looks like it's in a pretty protected area of your house. Love to see it sometime! Great job

Really hip set-up. Good design and nice style. Really well executed. I have been wanting to try my hand at the foam carving seems like a lot of fun.

the two best reasons for building your tiki bar outside.
1. - In polynesia your never really 'indoors'
2. - the neighbors know your out there, but they can only guess what you're doing.

love the bridge, reminds me of crossing the threshold into the Kahiki.
you have any recent photos?
