The main circuit board and ozonator on the hot tub fried. Partner the expense of fixing those parts (and whatever else was wrong with it) plus the idea of reclaiming part of our small backyard, plus the fact my Dad was in town, and we had a heck of a project this weekend.
We had to take down the wooden lattice, cut out all of the vines (took forever), pull down the walls, haul the hot tub out (which required disassembling our chain link fence and cutting down trees with a hatchet, and building a wooden walkway up to the decking. Then finding someone on Craigslist to pick it up and haul it away.
Now we just need to get some lawn furniture, and we’re set.
