My Buddy Guy’s new Hot Tub Shelter built entirely out of BC Red Cedar. Ondura compsite roofing panels were used to cover the top of the structure. The project was built off and on over a period of 5 weeks mainly due to weather. The entire structure was covered
with a sealing stain for red cedar.
The structure has provided shade on the back patio that was not bthere before, privacy for the hot tub and an additional benefit of providing shade in the afternoon over the back Arizona room resulting in less air conditioning in the home.
The structure was bolted together with galvanized bolts and areas where the beams contact each other were glued as well nwith PL400 wood glue for added strength. Three of the 6×6 supports were dug down and cemented into the ground, the back three 6×6 posts were anchored to the cement pad with industrial strength anchors. The sun shade was purchased at Costco.
Construction was completed by Bob McMann and Joe McSweeny. of Hamilton. Design was my suggestion and financed by the owner.Guy
