“I love it when a plan comes together”. Anyone spot the 1980s popular TV culture reference to the A-Team? Probably my favourite TV program as a child. Perhaps, dare I say it how I got into the whole “DIY thing”. I always marvelled at the inventions the A Team cobbled together. I loved making things as a kid. I still love making and creating “things” today. I remember vividly playing “A-Team” with my younger brother – I was always Hannibal Smith – the “man with a plan”.
When Mel got in touch back in July of 2021, his goal was pretty straight forward. He had sent me a picture of a pavilion with an on ground hot tub that you can see below. This was the inspiration and this is what he was setting out to achieve. Oak framed pavilion with an in ground hot tub. Perfect.
Edward got in touch as he was currently in the process of building a new holiday let property and wanted to incorporate a hot tub.
With his builders already on site, he knew that it would be a much cheaper option for him and his team to build the tub rather than getting a spa builder in.
For those of you who are regular readers of the blog or indeed my YouTube Channel, you will know I talk an awful lot about the control room.
The control room is the hub of your hot tub and if you get this portion wrong, then you are going to be in trouble. Worst case, your hot tub just won’t work.
Francisco, located in Chile, got in touch with Andi as he was looking to do something a little different with his DIY Hot Tub build. Not content with a “regular build” he wanted to add a custom made, fire pit heating element to the design.
Marc contacted buildhottub.com in May 2021 as he wanted to build a hot tub between the area in his house and the garage. On Day Zero video below, you can see Marc showing the area where he had been using an inflatable tub for quite some time. He had a lazy spa which he had been having issues with for 16 or 18 months, it was repaired several times in the last 12 months alone. He spent a lot of money – nearly £3000 / $4000 – on repairs for it, and he still didn’t have a working hot tub!
