Looks great! Looks like a similar size to the one I am building. How does it look behind the bar? Do you have a counter space back there with shelves?

It doesn't have a lot of room for shelves .It is biased forward to get the most room behind it I could .I do have plans for small shelves for bottles but I have not got to that point yet still have to fix the pavers I moved around when I first started . The bar top is about 20 inches wide

Good use for the space indeed. I have a small space behind my bar, and I am thinking organization with quality products is probably the secret to success. Don't forget the Tikis, and have fun.

sorry about the sideways pics I'm tech-stupid . In the first pic you can see the shelve / glass holder .The second pic was right before I finished the pavers but you can see the shelves at work ?

It's looking pretty good.
I'm wondering how much you estimate that you save by building a tiki hut yourself rather than buying some ready-made one like the square bamboo hut I saw here:

Keep building your bar, buying one is for Squares.

I've found that building a bar is more fun that just drinking at it.

Besides, I doubt that you'll ever be finished with it, if your like most people on this site.

Keep up the good work!

The thing about building your own bar is it can be whatever you want it to be . Mine has two sides it seats about 6 but I always end up with as many people tending bar as i do sitting on the out side . I think for me its like having something to tinker with all the time too .As far as saving money I would have saved alot if I would have never found this site .
