You do not have to live anywhere near the pacific islands to sip drinks from a coconut cup and relax to tropical music. Inspired by a trip to Disney, this Tiki bar is one of many hand-built structures in Steve Guizzo's Aventureland themed backyard in British Columbia. Starting with plans for a garden shed and using only rusted and weathered materials, he created a theme park worthy design which has entertained his friends and family for several years. "It's always evolving," he says, and recently he has added a grill and plumbing to the bar. Here are the basic step-by-step plans for Guizzo's tiki bar—lanterns, fishnets and other trinkets not included.

  • Circular saw or Sliding saw
  • Power drill
  • Hammer
  • Level
  • Angle grinder

  • 1/2 yard driveway gravel or other aggregate (for foundation base)
  • 11 - 3 ½ x 3 ½ x 8' pressure treated fence post (or 4 x 4s if desired)
  • 12 – 1 x 6 x 8' pressure treated radius deck boards
  • 21 - 2 x 4 x8' boards
  • 7- 2 x 4 x9' boards (for rafters)
  • 35 - 1/2 x 6 x 4' fence cedar fence boards
  • 21 - 2 x 4 inch brackets (Simpson strong ties)
  • 24 - 2 x 5/8 inch lag bolts
  • 500 or more deck screws sizes ranging from 1 ¾ inches to 3 inches
  • 1 - 2' x 8' x 1/2" plywood G1S (good one side, for your countertop)
  • Wood Stain
  • Decorative theme objects — fishnets, lanterns, coconut shells, Tiki torches, Tiki carvings, etc…
