I googled images for "outrigger beam" and that looks waaaaay more complicated than I can handle, although it is cool. For now I'll save the thatch and see about painting.
Pardon the ignorance of forum etiquette ... should I create a new thread to chronicle the renovation or keep it all in this one? (Wonder if I can rename this existing one....)
Name and color suggestions for wall paint are most welcome!
Well, I tend to go all out in my thinking... you can totally do an A-frame, but omit the outrigger beam. I'm sure anything you decide to do with that space will work out just fine... you're half-way there already with what you have (at least from the photos)... I agree with the suggestions of darker tones... tiki is dark and mysterious... and dark can work toward your minimalist tendencies... you'd be surprised how much dark goes toward enveloping an environment and bringing it all together, and minimizing any extraneous bits.
Oh, love the name of your tiki bar!
