Madame Bong and I recently gave the front of the Tiki Hut a face lift. We wanted a more tropical/polynesian look. This included a lot of flag stone work (horizontal and vertical) as well planters.

















It helps have 'California Seashells' owner living next door!

For the address numbers, Madame Bong found the company and chose the design.

It took about 5 weeks, they're aluminum and the stand out from the surface about .5"

Here's the site link for the company that made our house numbers.

Bong,

I too am interested in the numbers. Very cool place. The landscaping and flagstone are great. Also, did you steal, I mean appropriate, the HB city limits sign?




The sign was made by a cratchety old dude in Oregon; he specializes in recreating 'old' signs, complete with a few bullet holes in 'em.

Excellent!! Now I know which house to toilet paper on International Tiki Day.

Seriously, the end result of your front yard makeover turned out real nice. The Musa, Coleus, and other tropical plants add a real stylish touch.

I be over for dinner on Friday.

Thanks for the kind comments. Actually, I can't take any credit. Debbie aka Madame Bong handles all capital improvements on our house - the kitchen, bathrooms and front yard. (But I handle the Tiki Bar!)

I don't remember now what the front of your house looked like, but it sure looks beautiful now. Madame Bong did a fabulous job, as usual (although I'm sure you did lend her quite a bit of assistance). The plants look nice now, but I know that once they've had a couple years to establish it'll be a real knockout.
