They surrounded the spa with storage, seating

It still looks bulky, but this self-contained fiberglass spa now has step-ups, seating, and storage around it.

Platforms bank three sides of the shell. Leading up from the patio is the lowest one, 8 inches high, which is covered with indoor-outdoor carpet. Next comes a 16-inch-high deck of 2-by-6s, cut to follow the spa's contours; this serves as a second step and as a bench.

Along the house wall, flush with the spa's rim, is a 31-inch-high lidded storage compartment. The insulating cover rests on this when the spa is in use.
