My Tiki space started off as a Japanese "style" deck, an extension of our Japanese garden.
The deck is on three levels each one 10'x 18'

upper deck June 2007


in June 2010 I put a roof over the mid level deck






In March 2012 my wife and I went to Hawaii for the first time, and I bought a cheesy Tiki bar sign...
Wife "but you dont have a Tiki bar"
Me "well I could make one"
When we got home I found this site. Oh shit.

April 2012 started the "conversion" Japanese to Tiki shouldn't be that hard....
Walled in and lightly insulated the roofed mid deck (that Philippine mask is long gone)


needed a bar


June 2012 needed a roof over the new bar..


Faux bamboo on bar front


Aug 2012 making some progress.


Nov 2012 that's the sign, I got rid of it for a while but put it back up somewhere else because i like it...and its the reason Im here... Im sure Ill get rid of it eventually, but for now its staying! and so is the TV!


I dont have any current pics of the covered mid deck (the lounge) but it has progressed since Nov.
Lately Ive been working on routering for trim around the bar itself. Ill post more pics shortly.

This summers projects:
Outdoor Tiki kitchen on lower level
wall in upper deck (most of it)
shipwreck bar under the lounge.


Mahalo for lookin
Darren

Looks like you're on your way to something really great!

I like the way that you totally plan to evolve the bar and space, but are utilizing what you've got on hand right now. Looking good!

I'm envious of your router work!!!! Seriously, I have so much trouble with mine. Maybe I have the wrong kind of router.... got any tips? I have a plunge router, craftsman but its so powerful and hard for me to control. Maybe I'm not strong enough, being femail. although I hate to admit that's a possibility.
