So after some time My wife and I decided that we didn't have the room for a inside build so the backyard was available. We hadn't done much with it after a fire several years ago wiped out what was there. It was time for a new look. We decided to work on several small sections at a time so at least something gets done



The deck from the path as I left off last year. We live in upper California, so it gets pretty hot during the summer and wet and cold during the winter. got to love zone 9. The top will have to come this year due to a injury last fall.



The small water feature I put in. The planter is full of cannas right behind. Started a wood fence to block off the view a bit.


Two of my first big tikis. The one on the right is my first attempt on a small pole, The one on the right is from my brother. Solid oak I might add.



Close up view.


A quick view of this years start. The fence we started last year I finished off with a reed cover. The plants are just now coming in, so I can't wait to see what it will look like in a month or so.




To be cont......

Been slow to get new pics due to work. Added a great float light.


Simple project mixing a solar tiki torch and a bowl. Frosted on the inside, then netted. Lights up every night.
Had to find one with a good flicker and lower the light unit, but it came out great. Solar cell is on the roof above

You started out with a kind of simple wood structure, it went fancy from there, was not expecting it to look like that on top, really different.

I like the light, looks good.

Yeah, keeps changing. I'm blaming the disney jungle cruise ride line building for the change in look. Have added shutters to the coupla and added netting to the underside. Have found low voltage lights are great for a outside build. You can get them colored, soft or bright bulbs.
