We bought our home three years ago. It was built in 1959. Needless to say it needed to be remodeled.
This is what the front looked like when we started.






Notice we had already knocked down the brick planter in front of the door in the last two pictures. That was our Thanksgiving day project 2001.

And here is what it looks like as of today.











And here is a night shot.



We did all the work ourselves except carving the tikis. They were carved by our local carver "Tiki Dan"

Vandalism...??? Not yet and hopefully not ever.
The Tikis are large, heavy, bolted down and set in concrete. They're gonna have to want them really bad. We have very watchful neighbors too.

The palapa has also been sprayed with a fire retardant.

As for the night shot... We just picked up a new digital camera from Costco. It is very cool and has a special setting for night shots. We are having lots of fun with it.

Stay tuned for more pictures of the back yard and interior.

Aloha

WOW I love it!!!!!!!!
You did a fantastic job. But I still hate you people that can have all of the palms and tropical plants in your landscape.
OK, I don't hate you, but I'm jealous as hell.
We really struggle to find plants with the right features that we can use here in zone 4. Thanks for the awesome photos. Love the night shots too!

Here are a few pictures of the back yard. It is about half done. We are adding on to the deck and building the new 'Ona Tiki Lounge and waterfall. Hope to have them done by the end of summer.

Before....

looking from the back door of the house to the only existing landscape.


our trash pile from the gutting of the kitchen cabinets.


looking towards the parking area at the back of our lot.


The future 'Ona Tiki Lounge

And now.....


















Left side of path still needs stone work done.




The "Ona Tiki Lounge patio.



Note that some of these shots are from last summer before the mural was painted.

And now for some current night shots...












My first tiki carving obscured by the jungle.

More pics to follow of inside the 'Ona Tiki Lounge and inside the house.

Thanks for looking

Aloha

WOW What an Incredible Transformation!!! You should be (and I'm sure Are) SOOOO Proud. Your place looks just like the place for my next Vacation.Super Lush, Tropical Hidaway, deep in the rain forrests of polynesian Island. Soft Hawiian music playing in the background, Mai-tai's for everyone,Tikis to watch over and guide you on this long journey to peace and tranquility...
Did I wake up yet?
Nice.
