It’s All in the Details

As time gets closer for the opening, I am getting so excited to see everything come together. I cannot express how wonderful it has been working with Viking Construction. Every time I go to the site, all the guys are so nice and quick to smile. They have all worked very hard to make the deadline and make things right. Yay Viking construction….Kris, Chris, Selwyn and the many men and women. Y’all are the best and I can’t wait to throw a party to thank them for all the hard work and for helping make my dreams come true.

Here's a little section of the bar

Now, I want to tell you a story of one of the details in the venue, the interior bar. The bar is a live edge koa bar. My best friend’s husband is a wood worker and I commissioned him to do the bar top. Maleko went to the Big Island, picked a tree, cut it and checked out the grain. He went through a couple of trees before he found the right one. The tree got shipped, went to the kiln to dry, then slabbed, sanded and shaped. It took Maleko a month to get the bar in perfect shape to install. The last week in Jun, he installed the koa bar top and he, along with my favorite mixologist, Carl, poured the clear coat on top and after hours of drying…….we have a thing of pure beauty!

One of the many special details. Next, I’ll have to take pictures of the chandeliers Yvette picked for the entry way and bridal salon, or maybe the spiral staircase, or the poi pounders, or the door pull on the front door. Whew, so many great details. All these great details, it’s hard to pick my favorite. Nah, that’s not true, I still love my walk in cooler the best!
Until next time….

  1. It sounds beautiful and anytime you can work on your dreams becoming true is a “Blessing”. I just retired after 45 years of being a Stewardess/Flight Attendant for United Airlines. My last 5 years were flying to Hawaii. Every T-W-T I was lucky enough to be in “Paradise”. The locals are such generous, loving and giving people that made my stay Always a joy. Never did I have an unhappy passenger leaving Hawaii except that they were returning to the Mainland. Good Luck with ” Sugar Beach” it looks Grande.
