I would LOVE to have one for the same reason out here in Colorado. But, in order to get one, I'd have to redo our whole side yard and it's a big $$$ project I can't swing right now. Maybe in 12 years when the boys head to college. I'm thinking snow falling, hot tub, margarita and a fat bowl of indica.

I have one that's built into my pool. I'm always fucking with the heater though. It's natural gas, and have constant issues with the pilot light. I do love it when it works though. It doesn't get super cold here, but during the winter it is usually 40-50 at night. If I lived up north and I had to choose between the two, I'd go hot tub. Down here, I pretty much get 9 months of use out of my pool and I never have to "close it", so I'd choose pool.

When I lived in Texas we had a pool because it was hot AF and was a
necessity not a luxury. With 3 kids we got a ton of use out of it, but my wife and I used the hot tub much more. With my other homes when I lived in the Midwest, we’ve always just had hot tubs, no pools. Strongly recommend a hot tub as you can use it all year long, much easier and cheaper to maintain, and you can drink and smoke cigars when using it. Can’t do that with a pool. First World problem, lol.

I once built a house around a 10 person hot tub in a 20x20 sunroom with 18 foot vaulted ceiling. Carpenters called it the ultimate party house and it was. But I was single. After you use the hot tub a few times the novelty wears off, plus the smell of chlorine is in the house constantly

His hot tub fantasy involves carpenters, how fucked up is that.

I mean, imagine the guys who are being paid to build it saying it's the best party room ever. They probably got another couple grand out of the job, and nobody else ever saw the room.

And imagine a party at Omeletponce's. White blues, and milk.
