Hot tub gazebo planning
If you have a hot tub, a hot tub gazebo is the perfect choice for having a more intimate and relaxing place. The hot tub gazebo will increase the protection and you could use it when you couldn’t use a normal hot tub. Before you start you need to know many things.
First, you need to decide what type of enclosure you will construct, a simple roof over the tub or you want to make a complete enclosure with maximum protection and intimacy. The grade of the protection it’s directly proportional with the cost for this construction and the time that will take to complete it. You also can choose something between these two types by making a foundation with a ceiling and construct half walls or use screens to line the outside part of the gazebo. This way you will have some protection at an affordable price.
When constructing a gazebo you need to take into consideration the materials you will use and usually you have to choose between plastic, metal or wood. Most people choose wood because it looks better and is cheaper, plastic and metal are easier to maintain and clean. If you still want to choose wood, you have many choices, like pine and oak. These choices are popular and you can finish and paint them for a naturally beautiful hot tub enclosure.
You must take into consideration the water and the power for the gazebo area. If you already have a hot tub and you want to enclose it, the water is not a problem but if you have a new hot tub you need to take care of the plumbing for the water. You need to make sure that the gazebo has the power to operate the hot tub and that you have an extra outlet for any other devices you may want to use when enjoying your hot tub. There are many things you need to take into consideration when planning a hot tub gazebo. Large home stores have gazebo plans and designs for you. You will probably not find what are you looking for but you will make an idea of a good design.
