Now that we are slowly
getting settled into the Lykkiplex it's time to get the BBQ fired up. The front
patio makes for a great hang out area and a nice break from the air conditioned
offices ( although we like that too).
It was great to see
neighbors walking by and we would invite them over for burgers.
Kudos to Bill in our
finance department for bringing in some amazing marinated chicken. Sooooooo
When we thought about the
design and decoration for our offices we knew that a beach and tropical theme
would be super fun. Everyone loves the beach and vacations - right?
So when we saw that
during the office layout we were going to have a drain pipe/support pole in the
middle of the office, I wondered what we could do with it.
"decorate office drain pipe" and amazingly there are lots of websites
that show how to turn them into palm trees.
Fantastic, just what
we need for our tropical theme and since we have 12 foot high ceilings the tree
should have lots of room. So we ordered the Palm Fronds and coconut bark online
and began building our first indoor drainpipe palm tree. Here are some pictures
of our process. It only took a few hours and it looks amazing. The cool part we
didn't anticipate was when it rains there is this soothing water sound from
inside the pipe as the water drains from the roof down the pipe. Almost like we
had a fountain inside.
Call me anytime if you
want to know where we bought the supplies and how we built it.
