Things You Never Knew You Wanted: Wood Fired Hot Tub

As summer gets in to full swing we start to emerge more often from our man caves to experience the world outside and what better what to take the luxury and easy living you enjoy in your man cave outside with your very own hot tub?

Yeah, that’s all well and good but it’s just far too pedestrian for our tastes so in true Man Cave Mafia style lets ramp it up and take it somewhere new.

Introducing the latest luxury item I have just decided I must get for my garden:

A wood-fire hot tub.

For just 5 grand you can own not just a hot tub but a wood fire heated hot tub.

That’s a lot of scratch, but the costs of running this hot-tub will be substantially lower with no required plumbing or electricity required!

OK, so this is sounding more reasonable all of a sudden.

The heating for example is a simple as can be. You simply start a fire the same way you would start any fire in a fireplace, wait for the water to heat over the course of half-an-hour or so and then get in your hot tub and get down to the important business of relaxing.

Keeping the temperature to your liking is just a matter of adding more or less wood to your fire as you desire.

From the aesthetics, practicality and a better harmony with the nature around you than with one of those horrible plastic/fiberglass monstrosities this is a great way of enjoying your sojourns outside the confines of your man cave for some hot-tubbing action this summer season. First world problems, am I right?

As I get older and my bones become a little creakier the idea of intense nights out at the club or the bar becomes a less and less appealing prospect.

This is one of the reasons I made this site in the first place, as I left my old hard partying 20’s long behind me and looked to how I could maximize the comfort, relaxation, entertainment and FUN of my indoor activities.
