A thatched roof is an important part of any tiki bar plans for reasons other than appearance. While they are waterproof, thatched roofs still provide good ventilation, due to the nature of their construction. This helps to keep you cool by providing shade and necessary ventilation in the summer. In addition, thatched roofing will also provide good sound dampening qualities, reflecting less noise than traditional materials, and helping your tiki bar to have a quiet, relaxing atmosphere.
What some people don’t know is that after a construction job, the contractor will act like he’s doing you a favor and getting rid of the excessive materials. But, you’re still paying for them and he’ll use them on another job where he’ll save money charging them for the materials again. After explaining that to the owner, I was able to pick that wood up for next to nothing.
However, excitement soon gives way to concern as you realize that you don’t have the slightest idea of where to begin to start actually building your bar. You’ve got no blueprints and no idea what supplies you will need. In addition, you may have little to no construction experience and be afraid that you’ll really mess up anything you try to build.
The Extra Touch
If you’re planning on building an outdoor tiki bar and a thatched roof is not currently part of your tiki bar plans, you should seriously consider adding one on. It will give your bar a much better appearance, create the right ambiance, and provide your guests protection from the elements. No tiki bar is really complete without one.
The bar itself is in three sections with the largest section being in the middle about four feet. The two side sections will be for refrigerators. The middle section is for the kegerator. We ordered a massive three keg kegerator that will be great for mixed company with different tastes in beer.
Keeping in mind there are a number of major concerns that need to be addressed
Drilled a hole through the center of the bar top and installed the beer tower for the kegerator. I had purchased a few unique beer taps for the occasion. A few bar stools and we were done, or so we thought.
