We have a Hottub on our concrete patio and the wife and i have been trying to come up with some design to enclose the area (especially the tub for the winter months) and also increase our outdoor living area...we thought about extending the patio out to 8x 20 concrete to move the tub but $$$$ wouldnt make sense.....so we are stumped on some type of design....I hope that someone out there can help me with this and give us some great design ideas ...thanks in advance

UPDATE...okay....we have moved the tub and after a couple of weekends of back breaking strain...the tub is now moved....we will be building a pergola over it and i'm trying to invision something to tie into the pergola on the right side on a low-based deck with maybe lattice? so there wil be an area to block the wind and neighbours view.....Any ideas???? In the pic that faces the chimney side of the house the fence in the background ...the neighbour has an aboveground pool and deck a good 4-5 feet up and will easily see hence thinking fence on that side with privacy lattice

Started excavating the area where the hot tub is gonna be moved (out and to the left of existing location) then looking to add pergola/gazebo (not sure which yet) will keep all informed and show finished results

I was thinking of doing a pergola over top of that whole area(from left side to house to right side of first door entrance) and extending the patio out to the left of the tub with either interlock or wood and put up a small retaining wall around it.The only thing with putting the tub over 1 more spot is on that left side it slopes a little more and water pools up on the concrete there

The whole backyard is ours and i have thought of extending the patio out...the soil is clay...doesn't drain worth a crap...the back area where the tub is is facing Southwest exposure.....Not sure of what zone we are ...I'm in Southern Ontario
