In my opinion, not enough to justify the cost. HOWEVER, to those who do use it, 
4-5 people maybe, it is very important. Not having it would be a big loss to 

And when we show prospective buyers around, they are very impressed. It's like 
the workshop, they are very impressed. Also intrigued with the possibilities 
they offer. Very few follow through but some do. 

I would say no more than 5 use the workshop, either. But when they do, It is 
for something important to them. We couldn't do without a workshop.

My advice is to determine if any current members actually use a hot tub now. 
Everyone wants one but ..... So far as I know the people who use it here are 
people who had used them before they moved in.
