Some homeowners have a hot tub outdoors because of the cold winters and the humid summers. They want to have somewhere to chill in outdoors despite the temperature.

A pergola enables you to achieve this goal regardless of the season. Have one built outside of your home to protect the hot tub and to allow air to circulate.
