Two pole palapas are wonderful
over spas, outdoor kitchens, BBQ islands, pool decks, or just about anywhere else you could want shade. The
most popular application for this type of palapa is
placing it over a outdoor kitchen since the shape
of the palapa can cover most of the kitchen area and
your guests! The Thatch is hand woven Mexican rain-cape,
double layered for added durability. If you want to
truly vacation at home, purchase a two pole palapa!
Our 2 Pole palapas are also known
as; cabanas, grass huts, tiki bars, thatch huts, hales
structures, chiki huts, beach huts, island huts, tiki
shade, palapas and more.
Each Kit with Standard Options Includes
2 layers of Mexican palm thatch roofing (See
the difference between 1,
2 and 3 layers Click Here)

Our 6 inch diameter poles extend to 2 inch diameter pine rafters. The thatch roofing is hand woven Mexican rain-cape
Palapa sizes are a rough estimate because
of the following. Your 7x14 foot palapa will have
a 6 foot x 13 foot frame and we estimate
the thatch to overhand the frame by 6 inches on
all sides. If you were to measure from one side
of the palapa to the other including the thatch
you should measure around 7 feet x 14 feet. We
estimate all of the Palm Palapas to have a 1 foot
overhang. All our Palm Palapas will have a frame
1 foot smaller then the advertised overall size
of the palapa.
The shape of the two pole palapa is in the shape
of an oval and the 2 posts beneath are placed under
the peak of each half round end.
The post spacing is measured from the center of the
pole to the center of the other pole.

Pine is a tough,
strong, building material used
construction for its natural beauty and adaptability to a variety of architectural
styles. It is used in many outdoor applications such as, framing, paneling, corral
poles, utility poles, and railroad ties etc.
Cedar is known for it's decay-resistance.
The wood is used for purposes requiring resistance
to weather decay; such as in roof shingles. Cedar wood
also naturally repels some insects. If you order the
cedar all wood in the order that would normally
be pine will be changed to cedar i.e. ribs. Only
a very small supply of cedar is kept in our inventory.
It may take an additional 4-6 weeks to get a cedar
palapa if we need to order more cedar. Please
call for availability if you need your palapa
Treating lumber provides long-term
resistance to organisms that cause deterioration.
It can extend the productive life of lumber by five
to ten times. Wood that is exposed to moisture
or soil for sustained periods of time will become
weakened by various types of fungi, bacteria
or insects. Both the light and dark stains provide
similar amounts of protection for the wood. Darker
color will protect wood better from UV rays.
Clear preservative treatment penetrates into the wood to protect from the inside out and is not a top coat and will still allow the wood to weather. Clear preservative and stain can be combined for superior protection. If you add a stain treatment to your order please specify color of stain in the notes area during checkout i.e. cedar etc. To add to cart simply click on the listed price below.

Rib Framing Options:
"Rib" framing is wood set between the rafters that support the thatch.
Our redwood ribs
are 1 ½" wide x ¼" thick
and weigh less than 1 pound each. Although they're
small in size the advantage is redwood is decay resist.
The redwood ribs come standard on all Mexican Palm Palapas. These pieces require that
they be individually connected to the pine rafter frame
unlike the pine ribs.
Our Pine ribs help make the installation
of a palapa easier. The redwood ribs rest on top of each rafter, whereas the
pine ribs are wedged between rafters, helping to space them correctly. The
pine is 1" thick and is cut out of our round stock; this is done to match
the round rafter and posts. Each piece is connected the the adjacent piece
using a webbing material shown below. This upgrade seems to be a much sturdier
option compared to the redwood (1" thick vs. 1/4" thick.)
Each Mexican Palm Palapa structure kit includes 2
layers of thatch as a standard option. Having
multiple layers of thatch helps the thatch to
last longer, provides better shade and water
protection as well
as enhancing the overall look. When these items are ordered separately as a replacement; enough material to cover the specified structure size with 1 layer will be included. If multiple layers for replacements are desired; change the quantity to the desired amount of layers.
Do you need extra thatch to cover an existing structure or other project? Follow this link to theMexican Palm Thatch Page.
Rope Kit Upgrade:
We use manila rope for all of our rope accessories.
Manila rope has proved it's durability over
many years by being the rope of choice for many
outdoor and indoor applications. Some of the benefits
of using this rope are that it
is made of natural fiber keeping the overall natural look of the palapa.
The rope is 1/4" and is purely for aesthetic
appeal. Rope kit comes pre-cut but not pre-attached.
Do you have other ideas you want to try and just want uncut rope? Follow this link to theRope Page. Many styles and sizes to chose from.
