I am working on a do-it-yourself kit.......tiki-hut bar

still in the prototype stage so far


It is not that big....about 5' x 5'
Like I said, this is a prototype. I put the frame together by myself using about 20 or 30 3" screws
I'll post more pictures next week.

Looks like a good start, are you planning to pre-fab the panels and flat pack for shipping?

Are you already in the construction business?

I build roof trusses as a living.......so I have been thinking about this for awhile.
Yeah, the panels would be fre-fabricated. I am thinking that some TiKi lovers might like a skeleton of a hut that they can finish off themselves.
We'll see how this one turns out.

Thanks Suicide TiKi, I was thinking that it would work well by a pool. More progress pix by the weekend I hope.

Throw a door on the front of this and it sort of looks like the photo on the contents page of TIKI MODERN.

Wow! It's truly amazing. You've shown how much can be accomplished in even a small space. Great morale boost for those of us who rent and thought we'd never be able to have a really cool tiki bar. Looks as though, with a little advance planning in the finishing-out phase, it could easily be dismantled to accommodate relocation to a different property if necessary. You're definitely on to something here. If you ask me, it's ready for marketing roll-out right now. I think you're absolutely correct in thinking that lots of potential buyers would enjoy finishing it off themselves, in accordance with their personal tastes, budgets, and anticipated permanence in their current homes. Will enjoy seeing how you finish it off because you're obviously skilled and creative. But, meanwhile, if you were to launch the product as-is (even without the totally tiki raked roof beam) you'd have do-it-yourselfers all over the country finishing off their projects in their own styles. You then create a club/website/forum (such as a VW owners club or an Airstream Owners club) wherein people share ideas, stories, tips, and photos - very much like this forum but devoted exclusively to your pre-fab huts. I predict that your kits and all of the many clever ways people will devise to to trick them out would go viral. It would also save you from having to create a whole bunch of examples for marketing purposes - your customers will gladly do it for you. I'm stoked. Keep up the great work.

It appears to be mostly pressure-treated lumber, or is it a stain?
