Make room for hot tub

Hey y'all!  

We had absolutely no plans to purchase a hot tub, but sometimes you just can't pass up a good deal.  Well, "the deal" literally fell in our laps back in January.  We get the hot tub in the middle of winter which would have been great; however, it sat in our garage for about 3 months before we could move it out due to all of the snow we had this year.  

We thought about several different options on what to put under the hot tub. Concrete, pavers, etc. 

And so the construction begins...

We decided to add on to our current deck and have a lower deck area for the hot tub, grill, and extra sitting area.  Before we started the frame, we placed cinder blocks under where the hot tub will sit for extra support.

After lots of sweat, some blood, and a few tears, we are done! Well, for now. 

We love how it turned out! 

Perfect spot for the grill.

Plenty of room to walk around the hot tub.

Now we have a ton of space on our original deck which will be nice when entertaining.  

I'm not sure who is enjoying the hot tub more.  Us or monkey!
