Here are a few pics of the new carving studio/Hut I am just finishing up here in my backyard in Jacksonville FL. Spent the last two weekends working on this thing between carving a few tikis. Mutlipurpose use. Carving hut one day, clean it out and use it for a tiki bar the next........Built totally out of pressure treated lumber except for the siding. Rather simple design I designed myself (no plans). I just winged it.....Turned out pretty rad I must say. Had the girlfriend on the roof with me hammering shingles in. She was a big help as usual.............Anyway it's 10'x10'. Getting ready to add a 10'x10' deck out front with another rafter roof supported by two 7' tikis. Aslo am installing light/electricity/stereo/small t.v./water and an Air Conditioner window unit. Anywayz, I just wanted to share.

Thanks Seamus. I'm think about ripping some bamboo poles in half and siding it with those............

Cool. Glass floats, got any? I'd hang them dudes.......Thanks Gecko. I bought my house two years ago and have not stopped yet making it the way I want it. It's pretty laid back around here........ Hope you get yours soon:)

B.K.....It's been fun. Put up four fluorescents in the ceiling/walls this weekend and some shelving. Running electricity this coming weekend and installing a couple windows. Custom orders for tikis coming from everywhere. Not sure I can keep up........Can only do what I can do I guess. Gotta get this thing finished first so I can do some major dust slinging in there.

T.F.
