  1. First thing we built as we started our backyard food forest conversion was an outdoor soaking tub. Soaking tubs are deeper than bath tubs and this one has the spigot on the side so both ends are free for leaning back on. Craigslist purchase $200. Built a deck with leftover wood, put an apron and a cover on it with discarded fence boards. Attached a Chofu from Island Hot Tub Frazer is super helpful. Best purchase ever. No pumps, no bubbles, no noise. Looked at a diy hot water heating system but wasn’t comfortable with the open flame. When we fire it up, we make charcoal for biochar for the garden. When we drain the tub, it fills the swales watering our garden. Oh, and it is quite relaxing soaking under the stars. We use it once or twice a week. So many benefits. I hope you get your outdoor spa!
