I have been working night and day to get the shack dried in. I have completed all the structural bamboo and loft including railings so the kids don't fall out. Very excited and getting ready for my memorial day pig roast. Let me know if you want to be invited. Enjoy the progress!

As I build the Tiki barn I have been designing many areas as I go, this weekend was focused on how the roof was going to be engineered and tightening up lashings and securing support beams along with the loft.
I believe I've figured out how the whole thing is going to be finished now.
I will have just enough bamboo to make it!
Thank god, really don't want to go cut anymore down right now.
Next week I should be able to start installing the thatch roofing materials.
