Thanks for the aloha, friends!

Bongo - Thanks for the comps! I guess one can never have too much flotsam and jetsam...and if I do, then I give it away! Keeping the booze indoors is a wise suggestion..as it will hopefully keep the alcoholic skunks away as well!

TLB - the shipwreck theme is exactly what I was going for! So you're the one who gets the floats before me along the coast?? The flotsam is still there..you just need to know when and where to go as there are quite a few combers in this area! I love this area too! Super rich in nautical heritage...and the inspirational beachcombing legacy of the Hedleys!

Thank you Arriano!

Tikiskip - thank you for that! I think I need to add a TS lamp to the ceiling! Your style is perfect for inspiration point!

BigK - thanks, my MA brethren!

Thanks for stopping by, friends!

Harro - thank you!! Time lapse is coming...I just need to complete a few more things to the back yard before I can release them. Should be cool tho!!

BigT - thanks! When we bought the house, I had a major choice to make about the garage - will it be devoted to a workshop and inspiration corner (and storage too), or will I keep and fix up my 1956 landrover I had. I decided (through a little trial and error) that I sucked at working at cars, but I seem to be okay with wood.

Pele Paul - your backyard is awesome!! Down 'Pedro way quite a bit, huh? I'm sure we have. You also combing the beaches for goodies? Thanks for the comps!!

Matty - right back atcha. Lava lounge is the beez-kneez and major source of inspiration. Plus, you're a swell guy.

More updates soon!

Aloha tiki peeps! I thought I would add some new pics to the ol' Inspiration Point thread here on my lurking paradise of TC!

I've worked out a lot of the lighting and added quite a bit more to the little space. Let's check it out:



From the corner of IP, looking towards the rattan screen - behind that is the workshop



CU of wall with life ring logo



Another CU



Corner opposite the couch



Corner CU of flotsam and what not. Plus a little of this and that.



CU or corner



Nautical wall



From couch looking back towards the garage door. The hutch holds the mug collection, but haven't figured out how to get electricity in there yet. The screen covers regular garage stuff.



Looking towards the workshop (note the bamboo and whatnot on the wall)



Not so well lit, but the workshop area



CU of workshop side looking over to the rest of Inspiration Point



Final CU of workshop area

I hope you've enjoyed your tour of Inspiration Point!

I think everyone should have a place like that for "Inspiration."
