Hey everybody! Wick here.
Summer is upon us. Let the leisure begin! Here is my layman’s guide to summer leisure. My top 3 backyard leisure upgrades are:
1) A hot tub. I know you’re probably thinking hot tubs are only good for the winter but not so! Karoline and I use our hot tub year round. I would say we are frequent users. We are in it almost every night. Now they are pricey but you can of course find used ones on Craigslist or refurbished ones. Since we use it often it’s very easy to maintain. Just a dab of chlorine every so often. As a side bonus it’s very therapeutic for any relationship. Since you can’t bring your phone into the tub you are forced to look at and converse with each other 🙂
An upgrade to the hot tub is the cold plunge tub. We found this on the side of the road but you can find these at any feed store. Hop in here. Does wonders for your complexion:)
2) The sauna! Gaining popularity recently. There was an article stating you’ll live longer if you sauna. Easier to maintain than a hot tub too. I’ve seen a few outdoor ones at recent listings. Costco carries a good one for about $2k.
3) Lastly the humble hammock. This is the most affordable item from today. Karoline picked this gem up recently and it’s quilted and comfortable! I love hanging out in the hammock. It pairs well with a beer and shade in the hottest days of summer.
Please share your backyard highlights with us! And if you know anyone who needs to buy or sell a home please send them our way! And as always thanks for watching!
