Underground Indoor Hot Tub You Can Walk on When Not Using!

This isn’t a tiny house. It’s actually a 3-bedroom apartment in Australia that was designed by Weir Phillips Architects.

And I love how they were able to do something so unusual with this design. I couldn’t help but think how awesome it would be if somebody did this with a really small space.

The spa still takes up a good amount of space but the great part is that you can walk on it when it’s not being used. So I think it can be a great way to add a resort style feature to a tiny- or more likely- small house.

What do you think? Too much, or too cool? If you had the money and space in your design would you add something like this for to your design?

I know that if I had it I’d use it pretty much every night! LOL. How about you?

  1. Might be problems with moisture issues in a small space if you leave water in all the time, especially in a wooden house. Plus the weight of all that water has to be calculated into the plans. I would love to have something like that, a big tub of hot water helps ease the aches and pains, but that is an awful lot of water. I’m going with a tiny auxiliary sauna instead. It can also double as emergency shelter with the wood stove in there being reliable even if there’s a power failure or you run out of propane or whatever. If money were no object, I’d have a therapy pool.

  2. I think the cover would minimize the moisture in the home and I’m sure it’s made not to leak but it would be heavy and need good framing just like a deck jacuzzi. Totally worth it to me.
