You can pretty much install a hot tub in any apartment or condo, as long as you have a structural engineer to assess and condo board approval. Here's a detailed 6 step breakdown how to get a hot tub on your terrace provided by Sky View Suites:

1. Hire a structural engineer.

That focuses on projects related to residential buildings. His job will consist of making sure your balcony can support the hot tub's weight and you have enough space to install it. After approval, the structural engineer will compose a letter with a stamp of approval.

2. Get permission from the Condo Board. 

This step is the big deal. Submit the letter written by the structural engineer and other documents which prove you've done your research. From there on it's pretty much a hit or miss situation because the condo board has a right to deny your request.


3. Choose a hot tub.

You'll be choosing a tub depending on your budget and preference. Keep in mind, prices can range from $5,000 up to $40,000...

4. Hire a crane.

How else did you expect to get a hot tub on the 14th floor? It definitely won't fit in the elevator so you need to hire a crane. This service can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $6,000.


5. Find an electrician and a plumber.

So you definitely don't want to electrocute yourself or drown the neighbours below you, so get professionals to do the work please. You'll need these guys to connect the power and pipes.

6. Call over the friends.

Now that all the work is done, it's time to enjoy! Whether you're having a get together with friends or spending intimate time with your S/O, having some drinks in a hot tub overlooking Toronto's skyline, sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me!
