About two months ago, we ended up with an inflatable spa by accident. Initially were trying to decide which above-ground pool to purchase when we stumbled upon an inflatable spa that was the same price.

A whirlpool was the better investment because we can use it all year. We decided to purchase the inflatable spa, and I am happy to say that we use it almost every night.

The spa was one of the best decisions we have ever made. We enjoy unwinding each night in the spa; We wanted to add some walls to the spa’s new paver patio.

Build a Patio Wall Start

Step 1: Cut enough pieces of 4X4 lumber to 28-1/2 inches in length to frame out your spa area. We used 11 for the frame, including the doorway. Space them evenly around the outer perimeter of your spa area.

If you work close to a wall or structure, make sure your post will stand level once you screw it down. If necessary, cut out small notches for the electrical conduit so that your posts will stand level. A Reciprocating Saw gives quick solutions to these types of problems.

Step 2: Attach your posts to your frame with 3-inch Countersinking-Head Polymer-Coated Deck Screws.

Step 3: When measuring for your top and bottom framework, measure across the lower part of the frame so that your head will stay square. 

Measure and cut the 2X4 lumber to the correct lengths to go between your 4X4 posts and attach with 3-inch deck screws at the top of the posts.

With your 4-foot level, make sure your cross boards are level and use your speed square to make sure your inside corners stay square as you go around the frame.

Step 4:  Measure and cut 2X4 lumber to the correct lengths to go between your 4X4 posts and attach with a 3-inch deck screw around the bottom of your frame.

Step 5: Measure and cut 1X6 pine deck board to go around the outside and inside of your frame.

It may be easier to start by framing the doorway or entrance first and working from there when attaching the 1X6 deck board; center the board on the 4X4 post so that you have the same amount of overhang on each side of the 4X4.

So, are you ready to go out and purchase your inflatable spa yet?

Tip: When working in a wet location, you should have a Self-Test GFCI Outlet with a weatherproof cover installed. This type of outlet automatically runs self-tests to monitor for faults. The weatherproof cover keeps both the receptacle and any plugs dry. Installation must be per national and local codes.
