Well, after browsing around this website for awhile now, I finally got the nerve to build my own little paradise in the backyard. The tiki bar started out being made of pallets, It took off from there....Now I am addicted. I'm just getting Started, My wife is gonna kill me, lol!! Post any suggestions. Thanks for looking.

I will say it before anyone else does.

You need some tikis. Lake Surfer is up by you in Wisconsin, and he does great work. I think some float lamps would look good too.

It looks like it is coming along nicely. Great backyard for a tiki bar! Keep the pictures coming.

1. Get used to your wife wanting to kill you. You've started an addiction whose only ends are death, and poorhouse.
2. Look around the site, and do a LOT of research before going into anything else. I, like many, made the mistake of grabbing any tiki that I could get my hands on when I first got into it. You'll save yourself time, and money, if you find all of the wonderful artists here at TC, the resources for sourcing materials or things, and building your own, and learn what is, and isn't tiki.

Welcome, and good luck with the missus!

Haha, the funny thing is, my wife loves it. She doesn't like the cost of everything though. I'm very impulsive. I do find myself looking more and more into making my backyard feel like a getaway. slowly but surely it will happen. Im 36 and just started, I have got a long way to go. Its fun.

Let's be fair, none of us love the cost of everything

As a Clevelander who deals with snow 5 months out of the year...a warning: it will break your heart to see snow on your oasis! >:(
BUT- looks like you are off to a great start! Enjoy!!
