We are truly blessed to be living in the property we live in. Our land in front of our house goes right down to the cliff edge in the valley so this jacusi is making the most of the view. It helps to have 2 in the family paying for a subdivided house with a view.

That looks perfect Paul!

Are you going to erect a balustrade?

What wood did you use?

John the idea is not to erect a balustrade, that is until someone falls off the edge when they have had too much G & T or wine.

The deck is made of cca treated pine so we will see how long it lasts.

Winston Park, Hillcrest KZN. We overlook the Stockville valley and can see the Durban sea in the distance.

Job well done with a nice view Paul and I think a even better one awaits you from the jacucci.

Is there enough support for the weight at the bottom. My neighbor also has his jacuzzi on a "platform" and had to add extra support. The water weigh does make a difference.

Would love to have a view like that while sitting in a "tub".

Hennie the Jacusi is supported on the ground and the platform is built around it so there is no problem. My son in law is a mechanical engineer and has over designed all the supports for the deck at least 200% so there will be no problem falling through either.

That is good.

I do not think my neighbor had engineering analysis and input, as he had to adjust after the original built. His platform is at least 3 meter high, as it is an extension of the patio on the double story. We had to "beg" him to closing off the pump area as it is a constant noise close to our house. He is literally on the building line with the patio and jacuzzi. I wonder if it was ever submitted to the council for approval.

Enjoy your view.

The water is in now but the weather is too cold to bathe. When there is a hot day we will try it but the only brave one has been our 4 year old grandson. The electrics still have to be connected for the circulation pump and heaters.

Jan We had a large swimming pool which had dicoloured marbelite and a slight leak. We decided to fill it in because of the hassle and worried about our then 2yr old granson getting through the fence to the pool. With so few hot days i think i swam in it twice in 2 years.
