This was a complete three-day makeover. The spa was working but filthy, and the gazebo had been badly damaged by water, hail and weather.
We had to reframe all the base boards on the gazebo to pull back into shape. We bought additional slated pieces of Cedar from Bunnings to make up the missing door panel.
The original Laserlite roof panel had been broken by hail and we couldn't get another to fit so we used two overlapping Laserlite panels to make it wide enough. We built a raised wood panel in the middle to allow rain runoff.
Once it was all secured and rebuilt, we added a latch to make it child safe (and compliant), then pressure-washed everything. We used exterior paint in a warm wood brown, applying it with an Ozito spray gun and using a paint trim guide to protect the windows. We used a dark green floor paint to finish the concrete pad.
