So, this part of the can of worms is mine, all mine. I can’t remember when it was a desire, probably when I was very young. My grand parents bought some property in Utah, and there was an outside bathtub. Ok, in reality, it could have been a trough. But it was cool! We played in that water and had the time of our little lives. Every since then, I’ve pictured an outdoor bathtub. Earlier this year I acted on that urge. I LOVE Craig’s list. I kept an eye on Craig’s list. My search was for “cast iron.” One day, I found it and actually got their first. It was a cast iron soaking tub, extra long, extra wide. Easy price and picture perfect. We had recently installed the instant on hot water heater, and was told that I could easily hook it up. Wahla, a few weeks later, I have an out door tub with a crude hook up for hot water and drainage. Now comes the pavers and upgrade. We decide that instead of a hose that leaks when the hot water is on to the tub, having to adjust the temperature, hook up to the shower when we want a shower, or unhook for the tub when we want to soak, that we should make it “not a redneck” tub. We are taking the time/money to run water pipes to the tub without all the extra effort. This would mean I can walk outside, turn on the shower, and take a tub or shower at the temperature I want, without having to do ANYTHING. Now, that would be heaven. Heaven costs money, and means that a contractor familiar with plumbing, enter the picture. Picture Geoff.
Now, since I have a lot to catch you up on, I am only covering part of the tub on this entry. Believe me, there is plenty to blog about on my tub. But, I need to spread the love.
Ok, crash and burn, it’s late, I will write more tomorrow and label all the photos. And of course, fill you in on all the tub details, designs, and complications. Wahoo!!
