So, we moved from Paris to the city of Clermont-Ferrand, in the middle of the volcanic area called the Massif Central, in Auvergne. A region also known for it's gastromy such as their cheeses (St Nectaire, bleu d'Auvergne, Cantal...), wine (Côte d'Auvergne), liquor (Gentiane), beef, well good food....
Here's a picture of my neighborhood (15 minutes from the city) :



We're in an appartment, on an early 20th century building.

And so, I needed a new home bar. We decided to use a spare bedroom (10m²) as the new tiki room.

I asked my friend TikiJaws (
http://www.tikijaws.com/ ) to help me on this, knowing how good he worked on the Tiki Lounge, the famous tiki bar of Paris.
He did most of the work, understood my needs and my budget, and in 5 days only, we built it.
I have to thank also the Tiki Lounge staff, who gave me some spare black bamboos for the decoration, as it's very expensive to get bamboo here, I don't know why...

On the first day, we (Joachim, mostly) worked on the roof. We wanted a fake roof, to make it look like a hut...

First, the structure :





Then, we put the matting that we tainted (tek color) and varnished.

and black bamboo for masking the imperfections, and doing some nice finitions



and we tried to put bamboo on the black painted area,



but I decided it was better without it, more classy and in the spirits I wanted for the bar, so we took it off.

Beautiful countryside Virani (I never really thought about volcanos in France but I know Italy has some) Looks like your room is progressing, TikiJaws has some great stuff on his website too.

then, Joachim (tikijaws) did some carving and burning for some very cool finition between the black walls and the matting area.
