There are so many cool places to go on TC that until today I'd missed your thread. It was so fun to meet you at Don the Beachcombers and then to find your thread. I've looked at every page and enjoyed every step. You've made a tiki paradise. I like the lawn flooring. Well I like it all. The Moai hillside is terrific. I hope we run into you at one of the summer events. Cheers, Wendy

Thank a lot Wendy. I am glad you like it. MaddogMike actually gave us your idea early on and we even went to Michaels today to get some vines. Thanks for the great idea! The fake vines are great to cover up things and they add great accents to empty areas.

More pictures coming soon but I haven't had time to upload them yet. Even though we are having the grand opening, I still have lots of projects to go. Like everyone says, it's never really finished.

The Hut really looks fantastic.

(I hate this thread.)

Someday, I will have my own room.

Thanks guys. Got some more updates. I needed a bit more light behind the bar. I purchased a sailboat steering wheel and ran a light through the middle. I used some chain to hang it.

I thought it could use some shade. I wanted to go to Tikiland and get some cool stuff to make it out of, but Cobain was too busy making money that day. So I had to go to Joanne and I found some nautical fabric. I went to the dollar store and got a candle holder and made it into the shade.




I just glued it onto the wire frame. It is not what I had in mind but it will do for the time being.

This is what my bar area is looking like these days.

So I haven't posted many improvement pictures since the opening. I have still been working on it, but not as much lately. But I am still grabbing more cool items at the Tiki Marketplace. I am glad to have that going on near me!!!


My cannibals. By LakeSurfer. They are great and the only other place that has a complete set is Hale Pele. Theirs are larger I am told, but I haven't seen them in person yet.


Bay Park Buzzy was kind enough to gift these to me for my bar! He is great! He was going to make it to my grand opening but couldn't. All the people I meet here are really nice and do make you feel like Ohana.

I am taking a break from big projects for the summer, I just have too much going on. I will try to get some full bar pictures from a decent camera up soon though.
