Floating hot tub!

Floating hot tub!

blog
Fair play. I wish I'd thought of this - A floating hot tub that's heated by a wood stove and you pilot merrily down the river / canal / wherever the hell you want.It's an absolutely genius invention from a Dutch guy (where else?), Frank de Bruijn. The man is my new hero and I'd love to buy him a beer. It's beautiful in its' simplicity, made from wood, fibre glass and powered by a quiet electric motor, it's got everything you'd need. One person needs to stay sober to steer the thing I guess, but you'd have to draw straws to see who that unlucky person is. It looks like they have a couple of locations in the UK currently, one in Islington, London (hottugUK) and one on the…

Indoor Hot Tub

OK, so I'll 'fess up, this isn't one of ours. But doesn't it make you want an indoor tub? And a stone fireplace? And a few million quid for the house to put it in? Having said all that, what were they thinking with the safety rail? I mean, health and safety is all good but I'm pretty sure that the people it's supposed to protect (ie. kids) will be short enough to run right underneath that :) Ho hum, it's probably just jealousy I guess because I don't have a few million quid for the house (and what looks like a woodland to put it in) just lying around. Best I start saving my pennies or marrying into money. If your budget doesn't stretch quite that far either, give…

Great weekend

blog
So, the WickedTubs team were busy last week, setting up, filling and warming water ready for the weekend. We're looking forward to hearing how the parties have gone, and how much fun everyone has had. It's been perfect weather for it - chilly nights make the experience so much better, when the difference between the temperature outside and in the hot tub is so much more noticeable. There was no rain. Not that we mind it - in fact we rather like a light shower while relaxing with a glass of wine, in the hot water. Personally, I found time for a night out, for dinner at 'I Love Food' in Berkhamsted which is one of my favourites. Great food, and great atmosphere, and still found time to jump in the tub…

We had a great photoshoot with the new Lay-Z-Spa dome, all set up in a beautiful location. You'll probably need a reasonable amount of room if you want to hire one of these from us, as they are 3m wide (and require additional space for assembly)! However, they do look stunning. They also have panels which can be attached on every side, which gives great protection from the weather, but also complete privacy if required. Weather conditions obviously need to be ok, without too much wind, but well worth it! [caption id="attachment_120" align="alignright" width="199"] Lay Z Spa hot tub and dome[/caption]

For my own hot tub, I've just installed a shade sail to protect it from the elements permanently. I wish I had a bit more room for one of the official Lay-Z-Spa domes as they look completely awesome. However, as you can see, I don't really have the room to fit one in between 2 walls! The sail looks nice though, but I'm just praying the wind doesn't pull my house wall down when it catches. Hopefully, it's tightened up enough to stay straight and not flap around too much.
