    Finally done.

    Finally done with the year long pool project. Pool was up and running last June and it took forever to get the cabana finished, but oh, victory is sweet.

    I was going to do a built-in BBQ, but opted against it at last minute so I can set the island up as a buffet and roll the BBQ out if need be. It fits right in the right-hand side perfectly as it was built in and we end up leaving it rolled out and just rolling it in when we want to BBQ. TV is 40" LCD and we put in a Dish HD satellite. Tile mural above the sink came from http://www.TheTileMuralStore.com and the pictures don't do it justice. All the counter top tile and back splash is glass and the mosaic mural was a custom design. There's a 10" subwoofer under the double oven, hence the speaker mesh. We still have a little 'decorating' to do. We want to get some stuff for the walls, I wanted a couple neon beer signs but the wife is against it; little things left but that's all.

    hey guys, thanks. the idea was to have a place to go that takes you away from home when you're out there; and it works. the 'inspiration' was a mexican or caribbean resort feel.

    nothing like sitting out there on a sat. night with UFC on in HD, staying out there till 11pm, chillin with a cold one.

    these are a couple pics of the weekend we got it done. It was done on a Friday and we were watching the last UFC on that Sat. (me in the gray shirt)

    It's bad enough that everyone here has such fab pools (even the intex ones are better than my currently non-existant one!!) but to flaunt a second, outdoor kitchen that is bigger and better than my ONLY kitchen is just doggone inconsiderate of you! ;_

    j/k THat is one FABULOUS setup you have. If it was me, especially with the outdoor bathroom, I would probably never go inside again!!!

    thanks a lot guys. this started as a small plan i drew out almost 2 years ago and it's nice to see it finally done.

    being a general contractor, i get some fringe benefits. the double oven was bought and not used in a job about a year and a half ago, so we covered it up and put it in the shop... when the cabana became a thought, we put it aside to go in it. a lot of people thought it was huge overkill, including us, but our very first party, we bbq'ed some stuff and warmed both the ovens and kept it warm in there for hours... filled up both ovens... so that was that.

    the fridge has some dents and dings in it when you take a picture, but they're very hard to see in person, nonetheless, it's irritating. we didn't see it until we took a picture with the flash then Bam. not too mention, i had to swap the handle from the left to the right side and i got a little too froggy and busted the bottom door handle off, so a new is on order, in case you noticed.

    some of the audio equipment was bought for a customer job and then they decided to upgrade more, so it was set aside to use out here as well. most of the hardi siding was left over from some jobs as was the metal roof. so we were really able to use some spare stuff and save a little bit.

    i checked in to some nice pool furniture but it's just way too expensive for me right now. i'll wait a little while. those barstools were $69 each from Target and the little chairs and table to the left of the cabana were $125 for a set of 4 chairs and a table, so I got two.

    we got all the cushions and umbrellas from Pottery Barn, wife liked the colors.

    I believe there's another UFC coming up soon, the Bedlam one. Anyone coming over??

    Yes, the palm tree is metal - complete with coconuts!! We got it from a little western store down the street from us called the Longhorn General Store. Had to set it in a concrete pier so it wouldn't fall over and kill someone, then had to re-weld all of the leaves on so that they wouldn't fall on someone and kill them, either. Wasn't much, about $150. Also have a metal fish, crane, pelican, and sea turtle. Got those guys from Dennards Western Wear www.dennardsfarmsupply.com.
