The yard and hut look amazing. Great job! Now if we could just have some of that stuff called warm weather. Hope to see it in person this summer.

Completely fabulous! Very inspiring - the big carvings really make it. I love the shot of the interior ceiling. Congratulations, what a perfect party spot!

Awesome job! Is your banana tree (or any of the plants for that matter) still alive after all of our freezes so far this year?
Everything tropical in my yard here in Seattle is dead now.

Our banana tree looks very sad at the moment. We've been assured it will come back to life in the spring. I can't tell you the specific genus of the tree off the top of my head, but it's supposedly the most hearty. Everything else but the annuals is also supposed to survive our winter. Spring will reveal the truth. I can't wait.

I have a relative in Oklahoma that has a banana tree in his yard, he babied that
plant every winter by putting a green house around it, then taking it down in the summer. He has gotten to old to build the green house anymore, since the tree has
no protection from the freezes in the
winter now the Banana tree dies back. But for 2 summers it has come back all on its own. It hasn't made any Bananas in a couple of seasons though.

Absolutely beautiful! I can't imagine what your house must look like. I like the roof the way it is. The Harbor Hut in Morro Bay, CA has a thatch roof. Looks like thick stacks of reeds. The spiders seemed to like it too. Lotsa egg nests. Thanks for posting the pics.

It did look cool around midnight last night, when it was still snowing, and really sticking to the tikis & bamboo. We were going to take some photos this morning, but alot of it had melted already. We're due for more snow on Saturday, so we'll try to get some photos then. Happy New Year !

Yes-please post photos of this masterpiece covered in snow!!! Although it is probably a bit sacrelig to have snow covering a tiki.
We may get more snow tonight, Sat, and Sun.

Happy New Tiki Year...

We got about 5" in our neighborhood today. It's supposed to be 20 degrees warmer tomorrow, and the rain has already started. So, this snow will be gone mighty soon. It certainly makes the dormant Backyard Bali Hai a bit more pleasing though.

The Moai with the snow moustache looks like one of the "Got Milk?" ads.

I've got a tiki that looks like that too out on my porch... 4 inches on his head... and he's freezing his ass off... we had a high temp of 8 degrees F yesterday... Very peaceful pictures... nice.
