Our Tahitian Palapa/Palm Tiki Huts are wonderful over spas, BBQ islands, pools, or just about anywhere else. If you want to truly vacation at home, purchase a Palm Tiki Hut! There's nothing better than to relax in the shade of a palapa. Now you really can vacation at home!
Each Standard Tiki Hut Kit Includes:
Our 4 inch diameter poles extend to 2 inch diameter round pine rafters. The palm thatch roofing is hand woven Mexican palm thatch rolls (Tahitian style) that are easy to attach and maintain.The leg spacing is from the center of the leg to the center of an adjacent leg.
6'x8' Square Tahitian Tiki Hut: 66" x 92" (on center)
Pole spacing has been designed to maximize your space in the shade. The poles have been set to the very outer edge of the roof frame. If you would like to have the pole spacing closer together, in most cased this can be easily changed with no additional customization charges.
Palapa sizes are a rough estimate because of the following. Squared hut frames are not sized like the round huts; frames are, 6x8 feet, 8 feet, 10 feet, 12 feet and 14 feet respectively. The thatch roofing will then overhang the frame; overall about 2 foot or 12 inches each side.
