Teensy pool or inground spa for our Cliff May

Postby KateT(CA) » Thu Nov 30, 2006 9:21 am

We have a Cliff May, with interiors beautifully restovated by the previous owner. Because of the way it is situated on the lot, there is not a large yard area, but there is a small area right near the front door & master bedroom door that would be perfect for an in-ground spa. It's not really big enough for a swimming pool, and we don't swim anyway but are in need of a therapeutic spa (and we don't like the idea of a big tub just sitting on the patio)

Anyone have any experience with a modern spa design?

I think you might get more use out of on in ground spa. you'll need to weigh the amount of maintenance involved. operation cost. both are good ideas. I wish I had that opportunity, but my sewerline runs through my courtyard :cry:

with these small homes/lots, I find it's useful to make most areas multipurpose. consider integrating some sort of water feature into your pool/spa to creat a soothing water fall sound to block out other suburban noises. it makes it pieceful to sit by, or just hear when you're in the house with a nearby window open.

...or you might wwant to consider a SOFTUB...http://www.softub.com/

This way, you don't have to commit to putting it anywhere, and if you end up moving, you can take it with you. Much less expensive than an in ground, simple setup too. Just set it up, fill it up, turn on the heater/filter...that's it.

Admittedly, not quite as cool aesthetically as some of those fancy inground, but nondescript enough for you to customize the area you put it in to your liking. Also, it's soft, so no worries about slipping in it and bumping your noggin.
