There is nothing like getting home from a long day and being able to soak your troubles away in a hot tub. If you’ve never had your own little jacuzzi, you are missing out. Hot tubs are traditionally pretty expensive, but in the world of DIY anything is possible. Here are 12 super affordable hot tubs you can build all by yourself – and they are fairly easy to make!
Personal Hot Tub
If you live by yourself – or just like relaxing by yourself – this is the DIY project for you. Start out with a big Rubbermaid container. You’ll need to be able to fill it with hot water, but it is small enough that you could simply use your home water heater. Of course, the water won’t stay hot forever. But if you need a quick and convenient place to relax, this hot tub is perfect.
Solar Hot Tub
Solar heating is the way to go. It saves you money and it is better for the environment. The best part? This hot tub has its own fountain! Listen to the sound of water splashing as you soak away your stress. If you have a little extra time to spend on a craft, definitely give this hot tub a try.
Finally! A use for all those pallets laying around. The rustic look of this hot tub is sure to add charm to your back yard. And if you are really thrifty, you can make it for super cheap. Check out the full tutorial here.

Homemade From Steel
This hot tub is a breeze to make and isn’t too expensive. It can hold up to 10 people, but it’s still small enough to be portable when necessary. If you want to share your de-stress time with a group of friends, this is the hot tub for you. Learn how to make it from this tutorial.

Concrete lasts a long time, so if you are going to live at the same house for a while you should consider this awesome project. You can have a professional looking hot tub in your back yard for a fraction of the price. This awesome craft is sure to turn your home into a relaxing oasis.
Upcycled Bath Tub
Do you have a bath tub you don’t use any more? This is the perfect project for it. Even if you don’t have an old tub, you could find one through a local contractor or thrift store. It will be like taking a bath, but out in the open air.
Off The Grid
Going off the grid is pretty much always a good idea. Why spend money on electricity when you don’t need to? You can make this hot tub look however you want. The coil heats the water within a few hours, and then the hot tub will be ready for you to enjoy. Learn how to build it here.
