- Constance Hall, based in Perth, Western Australia, has built a luxury spa
- The exterior design was perfect by her husband and handyman Denim Cooke
- The 36-year-old mother found an older model bath, taps and wood for the deck
- A drain from the spa runs into the garden, so that it also feeds the plants
Mother of Seven Constance Hall has put her husband to work to build a luxury ‘spa’ in their back yard – and the end product cost her just $ 530.
The 36-year-old from Perth, Western Australia, admitted that she “always wanted a pool,” lowered her dreams and settled in an outdoor pool that her tribe could enjoy during the summer months.
“I always wanted a swimming pool, but the older I got, the more I became aware and apparently they are hard at work,” wrote Constance in a message to her 1.3 million followers.

How did she create the outdoor pool?
* The second bath was $ 100
* The wood for the deck was $ 150
* The pipes were $ 50 and the joinery was $ 40
* The gold faucets were $ 140
* The stain for the wood was $ 50
Total: $ 530
Constance described their house as settled on a “small block” and said that her family – including Billie-Violet, Arlo-Love, twin Rumi and Snow, and Raja, as well as stepchildren Zeyke and Sunny – already have a pond full of fish but she just wanted ‘something to jump in’.
Denim told her that traditional spas require chlorine testing and can become “pretty high,” which all sounded “pretty scientific” to the free-spirited mother.
“Most spas even look like sperm collection once you know what’s going on in them,” she added.
Apart from this, keeping a spa outside is very expensive.

So instead, they started saving for an outdoor pool that could act as a ‘spa’ if you were more than happy to control the drain with Denim.
Constance shared a photo of the result and said the best part of the ‘spa’ was the price – because they had only given up $ 530 for the entire renovation.
“The second bath was $ 100, the wood for the deck was $ 150, the pipes were $ 50, and the connections connecting the pipes to the taps were $ 40,” she said.
They splashed on the golden faucets, which were $ 140, and the stain for the wood was a reasonable $ 50.
The family house is a hippie oasis and many followers hoped that Constance would now share more photos of it
The drain drains into the garden and provides water to their drought-stricken backyard and welcome water, while the children are being cleaned at the same time

“I’m so proud of my husband … Bathtime has become so much more fun,” she said.
Her fans were surprised at the updated deck and many of them shared images of their own designs.
“I did the same with a cast-iron ball foot bath. It is so large and luxurious and only cost me $ 60 on Gumtree. I fill it with the garden hose and it runs in the garden … it’s the best ever, “wrote a woman.
“Dammit! My father and mother have just lost an old corner bath. That’s a fantastic idea, “said another.
A third added: “I love how limitations make us resourceful and imaginative! Looks nice!’
