The tub is here, but still not ready

Almost there

Today we made some real progress.  The stairs are almost done (we widened the stairs from 3 feet to 5 and a half feet), the screening shrubs are it, and the hot tub was delivered.  The tub came on a large straight truck with a lift gate.  It took three men to move it using a dolly.  It had about half a mile of cardboard and shrink wrap around it.  According to the literature that came with the tub it weighs about a thousand lbs.  Yet in big letters on the side it screams “Portable Spa”.  I don’t know about anyone else, but I think that something that weighs half a ton (without water) and requires three men and a dolly to move is “portable” only in the broadest sense of the word. 

Now, all that is left is to finish up the connections to the spa, the stairs, and the some trim work around the patio.  With any luck it will take us only a day to heat the water and balance the chemistry.  We might be soaking in the hot tub by Friday.
