Thanks so much for the kind words, folks. Both Selector Lopaka and myself were fortunate that everyone involved was into the idea. It still cost a chunk of change (dipped into the home equity loan), but we did have some help to cut corners. We got all of the cedar wood for cost, as well as a break on the landscape materials / rates & carpentry rates (we did some of the grunt work and running around for materials). I had a notebook full of old postcards of tiki bars/restaurants that the builders referred to for the structure. The garden is irrigated, and the structure is wired both with sound & electricity. Our budget was $10k, and it took a little less than a month. Hopefully it will add to the property value of the house, but now I don' t think we could ever move & leave behind such an oasis in our back yard ! Here's a few more pics :





p.s. the Flintstone car is parked out front ( I wish !)
