That’s what i’m talking about!!!! Good job. I hope it was a great party.

Great look I am doing one this summer on my new patio. Anything you can suggest for me. Do’s and dont’s. Where did you get the palms? I’m thinking I might have to take a trip to my nieces in Fla. to get some.

Bob42 – The Palm Fronds are readily available in my area, luckily for me i had an abundance to choose from in my back property which i was clearing out… It took a lot… one thing i would recommend is on the roof…I used 1/2 Bc Plywood, then a #30 lb tar paper #15 ib is fine too…the same felt that is used for roofing prior to shingling a house…This has made my bar absolutely leak proof.. I have never had any problems with leaks and on a rainy day, sitting under the bar, having a cold beer, and staying dry is alright with me… I used all pressure treated lumber to help with the weather resistance…the 4/4 post uprights supporting the roof are PT 4×4’s with 1×6 cedar board wrapping it…. if i would have spent a little extra, i would have opted for the 4/4 or even 6×6 cedar post…. I went with a concrete bar top, painted and sealed with the same paint you would use on a garage floor and the sealer was a showroom finish high gloss clear coat… You may want to look at other alternatives for the bar top to fit your particular needs…

Thanks for the info. I will check online to see if I can buy some palms made for this. Will definitely paper the roof first.
