Inspiration for an eclectic patio remodel in Portland with decking

Backyard Bath House

Eclectic Patio, Portland

After a lilac tree died and left a hole in the southwest corner of our back yard, we briefly entertained the idea of adding an expensive hot tub. After coming across this great clawfoot tub at a local salvage store for $100, I conceived this three-season bathhouse instead. A plumber installed a hot water bibb on the side of the house and a concealed, heavy duty hot water hose supplies water to the tub. A bamboo privacy screen can be lowered in the front and a vintage lye soap box is transformed into an ambient light fixture for atmospheric night soaking. Towel hooks, river rock and a simple cedar deck complete the spa-like experience. Photo, design and construction by Sloan Schang
