Is There a Bathtub in the Backyard?

Is There a Bathtub in the Backyard?

We’ve explored plenty of outside showers on , however, individuals are also adding exterior bathtubs. Eschewing the 1980s bash hot tub, they are settling for easy bathtubs outdoors; ones they can drain and refill instead of maintaining that same mystery stew in there for seasons on end. Others are using outdoor tubs for a cooling dip following the hot tub sauna or boil sit , as planters or as microbrew chillers in parties. You needn’t have grown up in a “nude house” to enjoy a very long swim from the backyard. Here’s a glance at how it’s being done.

This enticing tub in Sydney sits off the master bath and contains a terrazzo concrete finish. Apart from being a view of this from the master suite, or maybe a snapshot taken from a drone, this bath offers complete privacy in a tropical garden.

Architect Cathy Schwabe’s clients for the home shown here adore getaway weekends at locations with private outdoor spas, and they attracted a similar sanctuary to their house. She created privacy with louvers, sliding doors and planters within this second-story backyard.

The greater backyard is also full of plants that are edible. “Bathing out, whether soaking in the tub or standing under the shower, is rather the wonderful experience, and isn’t something we do much, following an extremely young age, with no buttocks,” Schwabe states. “Imagine starting the day by taking a steam shower, then walking outside the glass door into the outside shower to cool off, and stopping to graze on berries and various stone fruit before returning to get dressed to go to the office.”

When homeowner Sloan Schang looked into hot tubs because of his yard, the6,000-plus price tag gave him a jolt. Rather than buying one, he built his own yard bathhouse, complete with a vintage claw-foot tub. He did it about a week and a half for $750.

This tub isn’t used for people, but rather to chill the family’s microbrew. Original into the 1920s Victorian home, it wound up in a pile with other materials that landscape architect John Feldman of ecocentrix landscape architecture reclaimed for the yard.

“I have seen this bath play center stage during one of the customer’s holiday celebrations; her son has a microbrewing company, plus they were premiering the line in their holiday party a couple of years back,” he states. “The tub served as the front and center ice bath to their bunch of quality microbrews, which a hundred guests loved that night.”
