Hey guys,

Lots of Tiki progress this week. Here are some photos.

I'm so excited for this wall. I'll have all my favorite framed artwork here.




And here's a shot of the ceiling opposite the bar. I like the way Dave mixed the bamboo slats and poles on top of the reed fencing.




We now have the collar tie beam wraps on...




Here is a pic of the bar with a lot of the matting and fencing now up.




And here is a shot from the backside of the bar, looking up at the roof of the hut (within the Shack!).




Can't wait to see what Dave has in store for next week.


In the meantime, hope you all have a great holiday weekend.

Hi all, I'm writing to share some questions from Dave regarding treating lauhala matting. Any insights you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

"Should I spray the matting with thatch safe fire retardant or not and more importantly, should I apply any poly coating on it? And if so, do I brush it on, roll and back brush for bubbles, spray...? The homeowner likes the look of the matting as is so whatever treatment I do, I want to alter the appearance as little as possible. I did already purchase the honey teal wood finish for the bamboo but I donít want to change the color of the matting at all. A test on the bamboo does make it look more rich but deepens the color a little bit. Thanks for any help."

Hey Everyone,

A good friend and fellow tiki fan reminded me today that I'm overdue for an update on the Shack. Lots of great progress by Dave over the past two weeks. It's getting so close I can practically taste the Mai Tai when I walk in! Here are some pics.

Really looking great. Love the lashing on the beams and the carved wood look nice.

Didn't see any responses to these questions yet. I sprayed my bac bac matting and reed mats with fire retardant and brushed on Rust-Oleum triple thick poly. My room is a screened area that is somewhat exposed to the elements, though.

Your build is looking great!!

Thanks, tikitube!

Really appreciate all the kind words from others, too.

Will add more photos soon!
