Pimp my house: The hidden hot tub project (18 Photos)

Back in 2003, some awesome dude decided his living room needed a man cave upgrade. This is pretty cool...

    Reddit claims to be the "front page of the internet" while theChive claims to be "probably the best site in the world." It is safe to say that these are facts we can all agree with. That being said, lets all relax when theChive posts something that was on Reddit the day before.

    Reddit is not a person who should be cited for providing original content, and theChive is not claiming any type of ownership of Reddit's already borrowed content. If you see an album on theChive that you already saw on Reddit, move along to an album of hot Chivettes.

    -Chiver who also enjoys Reddit and understands the relationship between the two enough to not be a dick about it.

    Wow for a bunch that pledge to KCCO you sure can be a negative bunch of Ninnys.

    Ya, the moisture is a problem, but he cut piles of joists without putting in new vertical supports to carry the load. Sections of that floor are gonna buckle and collapse…. does nobody watch holmes on homes? You can't just screw with structure.

    • CRC

      Love the Holmes on Homes reference.

  • Craigery

    Won't the cover collapse when someone walks over the rug?

    • Kyle

      Covers on hot tubs are thick. They don't float on the surface. I see far more concerning problems with this.

  • EMFH

    When the insurance company comes in to let him know his policy has been cancelled and contractor gives him the quote for fixing the structural damage and mold remediation you'll hear pimpdaddy homeowner say, "The bitches loved it and it seemed like a good idea at the time".

    I assume there is only one channel and that is Porn Hub 😛

    CHIVE…..Can you just ban this PAULA thing based on the IP address? She's some sort of infected cum bubble or something. "IT'S" latest post is sickening to what CHIVE stands for! We all know were about and thats not it!

  • John

    a hidden hot tub, still rockin a tube tv…..

    • Spence

      My thoughts exactly. Has money to put hot tub in floor. Can't afford flat screen.

      • Alex

        If you idiots care to read things first, you'll see that these pictures were taken in 2003.

        • John

          I had a 42" plasma over the fireplace in 2003, but my hot tub is outside 😦

  • DMZins


    No structure whats ever in it ! It can support no more than 100lbs if

  • Rob

    Some people should not be near tools.
    Good luck with that.
    You just can't fix stupid

  • DMac

    This guy is obviously not an engineer. He just weakened the structure of his house. Floor joists are not just for floors, they aid in resisting lateral forces on the the exterior of the home. And don't get me started on the added moisture to the interior. Enjoy your mouldy home.

    That's great. But is it a time machine?

  • Eli

    i dont think its the same house because the chimney looks different. Look at pic #10 and #11…

    • Qwixel

      The brick is just facia. It can be pulled out and redone in 2 or 3 days. Everything else matches, even the plug in the wall.

    • Mysticpab

      Eli, you're an idiot.

  • b-minus

    My house is going to fall over in a year…… at least i have a hot tub in my living room!!

  • jefftavolieri

    Same as it was on reddit last week: mind blisteringly stupid.

  • Cg greg

    Eli don’t b dumb! Pls

  • Otter

    I would have put in a removable floor plate over the hot tub cover, making the whole thing invisible.

  • tarancara

    Stupid if you ask me.. ALMOST as stupid as the guy who built my house. In the basement there is a small dark room with mirrored ceilings and walls, cheesy wood panelling with country deer scenes and a hot tub with no drain or working water- and no running water in the basement.. I'm convinced it was just a porn prop room.. Creepy weirdos.we now have this room boarded up until we can afford to have the creepy removed…

  • Tom

    Now that is INGENIOUS!!!
