Plans to Build a Gazebo Hot Tub Enclosure
The plans are for an 8ft x 8ft (2400x2400mm) square gazebo hot tub (spa) enclosure with an attached drink bar.
The downloadable PDF file contains 20 pages of plan drawings, pictures, materials you will need, and step-by-step build instructions.
This is a rustic-looking square gazebo constructed out of rough wood (before the wood has been planned, dressed, etc) and is well suited placed amongst trees and plants in a bush-like setting.
It is 8ft (2400mm) square with an overall height of 110-1/4″ (2800mm) and a clearance of 80-3/4″ (2050mm) from the ground to the lowest part of the roof.
It was made to house a 251 US gallon (950 liters) family hot tub 79-1/2″ (2020mm) square by 30″ (760mm) high, but of course, it can also be used solely as a gazebo for any purpose.
The gazebo features an attached bar, a skylight, and an option to give it a more exotic look by adding brushsticks to the roof.
