It has been a while since I have posted an update. Since the SD Home Crawl will be coming to my house, I though I might post some new pics to build the excitement.

Over the last couple months there have been some big changes at Tiki the Hut. Me and my friend Kelly replaced my big, bulky, old, crappy eye sore of a water heater to a tankless. Now I have a lot more room to build new things.



This is what our wall used to look like. Lots of plumbing that does nothing and a huge water heater in the middle of my tiki bar.

First we tore out the plumbing and the water heater.


Our new water heater. It takes up a lot less space. I will build a cabinet around it to blend it in more, whenever I have time to do that.

So fast forward to the finish. I want to make a custom display case for all my mugs along this wall, but with people coming over I just threw it back together this way. It looks a lot nicer without the water heater. I still have some more projects to accomplish, hopefully I can get them done by the summer.

I won some $$$ at the Super Bowl, so I decided to buy this tiki! He is named Double Moai, created by Leroy Schmaltz at Oceanic Arts. A very nice piece for my tiki bar!

Also grabbed a barrel. I find that the more places to set your drink down the better...

This came in the mail too. From the enchanted tropical land of Victoria, Canada. Made by master router carver Dagg, our new Tiki the Hut sign! We finally can add a bit of credibility to our little bar! We now have a sign with our name on it! Thanks tons Dagg! You rock!!!

Also, I haven't had a chance to show off this guy! As well as helping me with the plumbing and electric, Kelly gave me this awesome ice machine! What a great guy! I am lucky to have such amazing friends. This is a good ice machine. It cranks out 30 cubes every 12 minutes. They are also clear/restaurant quality cubes. I don't know what I would do without this ice maker.

Treg, looks great. Look forward to (finally) seeing it in person this Saturday. Leroy's tiki looks great, maybe I should start gambling.

Ummmm.... okay maybe not.

Home ice machine a nice touch- you just have to maintain your drinking to ice cube making ratio. (I admit, I just grab coolers of ice from our commercial machine at work! )

Thanks guys. It will be fun to have everyone over and I will enjoy seeing other peoples home bars as well.

TikiAno - Sounds like a great place to get ice!

Monkeyman - I wish I could check out your pad too, but we are first in the schedule and are frantically getting prepared.

Grabbed some of the decor from Bahooka. Got a parrot, float light and a barrel lamp. I like the blue color light, but I can change it to any color. I put a color changing led bulb in the barrel lamp. It is nice that I can change it to normal white and adjust the brightness for playing dominos.

The new Tiki the Hut sign has found his permanent spot. Looks cool!




Hid my washer/dryer a bit. Hopefully we can make then blend even more in the future.

Here are some pictures with the lights. Sorry it took so long for the whole package pictures, but I wanted to take them on a better camera than the one on my phone.

Looking great, the lighting is very nice. Let me know how that tankless water system works out for you, might try one in the future.
