Ukko Cedar Tub

Ukko tub on the balcony of one of the high-rise apartments in Manly.

This is one of the examples where access to the actual installation site is very narrow and difficult to enter:

Narrow access to get the tub to the installation site

Narrow access to the upper balcony for hot tub installation.

Not only we had to go through the narrow door but also to use steps 3 more levels up to get to the current location. As you can see from the pictures, you can do all that with Ukko Cedar hot tubs.

While setting up the tub, we had a great time admiring breathtaking sights of the ocean:

We’ve seen the sun gradually going down while setting up the tub:

10 minutes more while taking one more camera shot from the other side.

All this time we’ve enjoyed pleasant aroma of the Cedar even with the strong Ocean breeze at the nightfall. End result is installed tub with custom made Cedar stairs, hand made shelves and equipment enclosure to fit in to the exact spot where the owner wanted it to be:

Custom made stairs

Custom designed narrow Cedar stairs to fit in to the small space.

Hand made tub shelves

Hand made Cedar shelves with all plumbing in place.

Hot tub equipment enclosure

Uniquely designed plumbing to accomodate space limitation.

So, if you are still thinking to get a Ukko tub and worried about space restriction, now is the time to contact us to design the tub for you!
