Wow! Are you a contractor? Looks very professional.

Thanks for the compliments. I really think its turning out cool. I'm not a contractor, I work in the aerospace industry, but I have a background in wood working. Hopefully have the grass on the roof in a few days, then handrails completed with a combination of bamboo and fish netting. I'll post pics then. And as always, ideas, comments, suggestions good or bad is wat I'm looking for. So help me out if you want, this is my first attempt! Love to get ideas from the experienced on here. Thanks again!

Little more progress this weekend. Grass, barstools, and rope detail in the back bar.

Very nice! Still completely bowled over by the framing / roping. And was that an elusive wild dachshund I saw in one of your pictures??

Got roof cap on, started the logo in bar front as well as installed tiki statues on bar corners.Still not done, but couldn't resist a July 4th test run. Went great!

Barstools are some cheap ones I found on Amazon. Made in China so assembly was not a breeze. But everyone loves them, they are real bamboo, but not too flashy so they dont take away from the work I did/doing to the bar. I'm confident the 250 lb rating is conservative. I am 235lbs, and I stand on the one behind the bar when I don't feel like grabbing ladder from garage. lol I copied the link here, hope it works, I'm admittedly a better carpenter tha computer guy! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CMYTRIS/ref=s9_simh_gw_p196_d14_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-2&pf_rd_r=1YFY46NVPEHE94PNXVJD&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=2091268722&pf_rd_i=desktop
