Project:: Hot Tub

Finally my patience of waiting for a free or super cheap hot tub paid off.  The best part of this is how it got moved and placed on to my deck.  Six dollars sayz my neighbors think I am crazy…read on..?

After digging out  80 loads of a dirt hillside and making more room for a few trailers at a trailer park we found a hot tub in one of the neighbors backyards hidden in the back.  After inquiring, the owner wished to get rid of the tub for a few hundred bucks.  So……… game on.

Here is a shitty video shot with my blackberry of lifting the tub onto the trailer….
