Yes, turn off any white lights, puts on "Quiet Village" in the background, relax in your soft cushion rattan chair, drink in your hand, there is no more to life. Great job! All I can do is stare at your photos and imagine I'm there too. Enjoy the fruits of your hard work.

Thanks for all the nice responses. While I built it for me and what I wanted, its always nice to know that others appreciate your work.

Its about 95% exactly what I envisioned when I started 3 years ago. There wasn't one part of it that I didn't have a hand in doing. I even pitched in with the carpet installers so I could make that claim lol.

Now on to the outside. I need money, time, and some more knowledge to pull it off. Hopefully it won't take another 3 years.

Before I show the very little progress on the outside of the hut, here are 2 new things for the inside.

Dad carved this for me. One of my favorite pieces in the Hut.


Then about 1 1/2 years ago I bought a Borneo headhunter. I've always wanted one. He was in rough shape. Missing an arm. chunks out of noses and heads, crack in the leg.
I gave him to my buddy who is amazing building stuff out of clay and epoxy putty. Extremely talented artist who can make something new look 200 years old.
he let the headhunter sit around untouched for 1 1/2 years and then finished him in 3 days. Came out amazing.

Before



After
