Kiwitub DIY wood surround.

We do make a cedar surround wood facing kit for the Kiwitub. It does look stunning; however it costs $700 incl GST (early 2012) as buying cedar is a bit like buying gold. If you're at all handy with wood, though, or know someone who is, you can make your own. It's not difficult, and you get the lovely wood look of a traditional hot tub, but with the advantages of the smooth shaped curves, much better insulation and mobility of our polyethylene plastic tub. There are DIY instructions in the Kiwitub manual on how to make your own wood surround for the tub. We've had owners use macrocarpa, old kauri, oak, kwila, and one lot of weathered Australian hardwood fence posts which cut down and sanded beautifully.

The photo shows some macrocarpa off-cuts we just strapped onto the tub in our courtyard in Dunedin. The burner is an earlier prototype.
