Looking good Jim.
Me I would want a bird nest in my tiki.
Pull that tiki out a bit from the wall and add a nest or bird house in back.
How cool to have a bird flying in and out of your spot.
Disney's are fake yours would be real.
We have woodpeckers all over never had this though.
Put tiki on edge of your spot though as the birds will try to run you out
when they do nest there.
Especially wrens.

Also on your tiki in your hut have you thought about up or down lighting those?
Would use lights that you can dim but this would be a cheap way to add a nice
glow to your space.
Up light is better as then you won't see light as much and you
get the spill lighting on ceiling.

Thank you for adding my lights as well.





Yeah a bird nest in there would be really cool. We had several birds nesting around the Lounge this summer. Here is a pic of baby robins in the fence along the pool. (I don't think they go for bird boxes...but I'm sure I have other birds that would.)



That is a great idea though to turn the tiki masks into a bird nest facade.

Regarding the tiki in the hut, are you referring to the one on the front?

Loving your float lamps! Hoping to add more to the collection before next summer.

Wrens or Sparrows will, the hole size makes a difference too.



"Regarding the tiki in the hut, are you referring to the one on the front?"

No, on the inside the four tiki you have there.
Best to place four spots, one for each tiki.
This way you will not get too much light.
If you want to get really cool and fancy put colored lights behind each tiki too.

Here is a quick mock up of what I am talking about Jim.
This tiki has Neon in back and a Halogen light in front but have made a shroud
out of a can AND it has a heavy glass gel made for high heat, so I would
say use smaller light to keep costs down.
Those high heat gels are not cheap.
I added the neon to this tiki as well but any low watt c7 type bulb will work
you will just need more of them.
