Tag Archives: Bamboo Furniture
The feel and ambience of exotic Caribbean or Tropical Mexican holidays can be created in your own backyards. You no longer have to visit beach resorts for those rustic looking wooden and bamboo furniture or thatched roof bars. Palapas, bar tiki and cabanas, which are typical for beach resorts, which service drinks and meals under a thatched canopy, can adorn your homes.
Palapas and cabanas are shelters, which are built around beaches or pools. Palapa is a structure with a huge thatched roof that stands on bamboo poles and is open on all sides. The thatched roof of a palapa is made out of dried palm leaves and branches, which are woven together to form an enormous umbrella. These can be built in any shape and size. So, if you are thinking on how to build a palapa, then the first thing you have to do is clear the site you have chosen and prepare it for construction. After preparing the site, you have to design the frame of the structure. The design of the structure will be based on the size of your site.
