What type of wood was used ?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

1. Place it properly. Avoid leaving all sides of your hot tub exposed. Instead, use existing walls and railings to hide multiple sides, then mask what remains with a wooden enclosure. Head on, you’ll see functional steps leading to your tub, but from the side, the tub will appear as a warm wood wall.

This could be a nice way to integrate a tub into a custom build deck and still have removable steps that lead to the access panel.

Liek the step up to the spa - especially since the height creates a separate space from the sit down dining. Almost a tri-level space -- regular deck, step-up to spa, step down to dining
