    I swear...it's like "let's go to the amusement park." But then it's like "you have to tie this cinder block to your nut sack though." I should be able to enjoy the tub by 2022 though, so I got that to look forward to.

    such is life....

    I have literally said "redneck" 100 times while talking with the wife. At first, she was like, "we can just put up a couple of fence panels by it to block the neighbor's 2nd story view." I poo-poo'ed that idea. Big mistake. That has literally cascaded into the point we're at now. Will it look awesome when done? Yeah. Will it cost me 3x what I intended to spend? Yeah.

    All those lumber and material cost meme's I've been posting have come back to haunt me. FML. Romex was about $50, now it's like $150. And you know what lumber is. I'm really questioning the cost of potential future wet sex.

    Pad is 10'x10' not sure the cost. It was all done we bought the house six years ago. Been procrastinating ever since, lol Not crazy about paying for a crane to lift it over my house. That's why I asked you about the crane.

    They got dollies and guys named Jose that will do that work instead of the crane. At least, that's what they told me. Have you got zero access on the sides of your house?

    Ideally you would want to pour 5 footers 2 to 4’ down depending on surrounding soils. Then a pad depending on size 10’x10’ would run you 1000 to 1500 fiber in concrete or stamped and color for 2000 to 2500. Also power do you have space in the panel? How will you adjust your sprinklers?

    I have access on one side, but it's pretty tight. I suppose if they removed the gate and took down part of the wall, but it's wrought iron and block. That's another expense I wouldn't be willing to take on. The neighbors on my street who have had hot tubs installed have had them craned in, so I'm guessing it was a necessary evil.

    You really think I'd need footers for a small pad? There's not much dirt where I'm at--maybe 12-18". You can't hardly put a backhoe bucket in the ground without hitting rock on the first bucket. The pad surely wouldn't be taking any more stress than a driveway? I was a kid when I worked concrete, but I remember it vividly...ugh. I thought about trying to save a few buck and doing the forms, etc myself, but I'm almost at "fuck it" right now.

    Plenty of room in the panel thank goodness. With the constant moving target for the pad, I'll not only have to have 220 ran to it, but a 110 convenience outlet too, cause now it's a mile away from a plug. It would have been SO much easier on the patio. *sigh*

    Know any welders? They could probably have the fence down and back up pretty quick. Paint it back to color and it would't be *too* noticeable unless you were looking for it. But I get it...you have a wife too.
