Making a Garden Building Suitable to House a Hot Tub
As well as considering the style of building that you want to house a hot tub you will also need to ensure that the building is suitable enough to house your hot tub. Some of the things you should consider include:
- The hot tub weight – a hot tub filled with water is far from light, so you need to ensure that whatever you choose has a strong enough base to hold the filled tub
- Ventilation – to prevent the rot of wood the garden building should have a good level of ventilation
- Treat the wood – treat the wood with a recommended treatment to prevent moisture from getting into the wood
- Space – no matter what type of hot tub building you choose you should have enough room in the building to access all working parts of the hot tub
- Fit – will the hot tub fit in the building when it is built? We have seen individuals struggle to fit the hot tub through the doors of a completed garden building, so we would recommend building the base, inserting the hot tub and finish the building around the hot tub
