They built a corral to give their spa privacy.

The rolling hills and the lack of mature plantings did little to promote privacy in Laura and Bruce Weiners's garden in Morgan Hill, California. But the orientation and layout of the house and garden suggested they put their new spa at the fully exposed southeast end. Placed in the patio area, the spa would have interrrupted views from the living room and kitchen; placed elsewhere, it would have been exposed to the street.

To create a sense of privacy and reduce the risk of small children wandering into the spa, the Weiners designed and built the enclosure you see here. It has a self-locking gate in one side. Horizontal 1 by 4's were nailed to 4-by-4 posts; 2-by-6 decking wraps around the eight-sided spa. Overhead, the same geometric theme continues with an open pattern of 2 by 4's nailed on edge to 4-by-4 rafters; the pitch echoes that of the house roof.
