This rooftop Otate Palapa (pron. ohTAHtay paLApa) is an addition to an existing shelter, extending the useable entertainment space for this fine home in Centro Historico.

We start with a load of palm pieces milled on Stone Island.

We build a simple but distinctive frame.

And cover it with the beautiful peeled otate fronds.

The palm trunks are very heavy.

A simple pull down shade provides some privacy.

We had some pieces left over so we built a bench or two.
