When Tubs Fly

How do you move a hot tub from a second story deck to a ground floor deck?

First, make your husband build the ground floor deck. Make sure he enlists the help of a child in this step. The child will provide messes and interruptions to his project that will entertain you to no end. The husband may not agree with this step. He will be wrong. Let the child run loose - with wet paint brushes if possible.

Here's the finished deck extension. See Sancho. His job is to insert himself into the center of the action and then refuse to move. A very important job! The husband will probably protest loudly about the necessity of this job. Ignore him. His throbbing forehead vein will provide you with unmatched delight and giggles, silent giggles. Laughing out loud is not recommended.

The next step is to pay a contractor to demolish the walls of your upper deck and ready the tub for transport. This part, the paying part, is critical. You want to keep the contractor with the large destructive tools happy lest he start demolishing other more important things, like your comfy, comfy bed.

The big guns can come in at this point. By big guns, I mean crane operators. Those boys are capable of swooping hot tubs through the air like conductors of aerial ballets. Truly gorgeous to behold.

Ta da! Hot tub on the ground floor deck.

You're welcome.

I was wondering if you were going to leave that thing upstairs. I'm sure it will be getting TONS of use now.

Nice job on the deck and the entertaining aerial shots of the hot tub flying.

As for the little assistant, she looks like she was a major help in the completion of this project.
