Very, very nice. Gotta be one of the best I've seen and I be the old kine tikiphile.
Cheers,
David, La Mirada, Ca.

Hey Boris - you are welcome to come check it out any time you please! Lmk next time you're in the Bay Area. Your top-10 ranking carries weight!
...and thanks hottiki, bigbro, n'u'u, Tiki Shaker, and Slacks - I appreciate the comments.

I'm organizing a series of progress shots, but in the meantime here are a few corners of the room that weren't captured in the previous photos. *Definitely* not as clean as Mitch's photos, but you can get the idea at least.

Entranceway:




Photo wall - Boris, I think you've seen this one before... I've added a few more pics since this was taken, but this is pretty much it.
Gathering these photos was a Tiki Central-wide effort. Contributors were: Tiki Skip, Tattoo, Bigbrotiki, Bamboo Ben, Swanky, Bifcozz, Abstractiki, and I'm probably forgetting a couple people. Thanks everyone!

Thanks for looking,

Holy kriminee...your place if off the hook. Those professional pictures I am sure do it justice. Who knew such decor adventure existed in Hercules!!! Love it.

Wait a second!! You have steps leading down into the Straw Hut? - Ridiculous!

You have a Porthole looking out onto the small patio? - Completely Ridiculous!

Those 2 things are incredibly awesome and nicely done!

I'm gonna have to come up with a cool photo worthy of your wall and send it to you. Gimme until New Years!*

I'm coming up with Boris!

The Straw Hut has that classic Poly Pop vibe. I must see it in person someday. Well done!

The giraffe print carpet is cool too.




That's not carpet...he taped off and painted the floor



No worries about spills then! I'm even more impressed. It's a great looking place. It looks very relaxing.

Thanks Tki-kitty, Big Kahuna, Bongo Bungalow, VimpiressRN, Wendy, Boris, Poly-Pop, Kahaka and TLB - phew! The compliments are great... I spent a lot of time building this space, so it's really nice to get some positive feedback.

My overall goal for the room was to recreate the feel of a 1950s - 1960s tiki bar. I got a lot of inspiration from old photos, and from the old surviving spots up here, like Minnie's and the Tonga Room.
