I saw the lounger that Ana posted https://www.ana-white.com/woodworking-projects/modern-single-outdoor-ch… and thought it would be really nice to have that near the hot tub. Combine that with the need for some kind of platform for the kids to get in and out of the hot tub and voila! The Chaise Lounge with Steps for Hot Tub.
All I did was extend the 2x4 legs to 28" to give the lounger enough height to act as a platform. Raising it required an extra set of 2x4s lower down for lateral stability. The steps used a similar approach of 2x4s for the legs and cross supports with 1x4s for the tread.
Thanks for all the plans, Ana!
