Man sick of partner 'nagging' about lack of bath turns dumper truck into jacuzzi for her

Dave Eastwood has spent the last two years building a new home for him and his partner, Helen Kettleborough in Honley, West Yorkshire. During the build, the pair have been forced to live in their garage. The unusual living situation has meant that Helen has only had access to a shower.

The 60-year-old has really missed being able to relax in a bath – a fact she’s made plainly clear to Dave on numerous occasions. Fed up of her complaining, he decided to take matters into his own hands and built a makeshift jacuzzi to ‘shut her up’ – using the rusty bucket of a dumper truck.

She said it was like ‘heaven’

Dave, 63, turned the digger he’d been using to build the house into a temporary spa day for Helen during lockdown, filling the bucket up with water and shower gel. Undaunted by the lack of electricity, Dave created bubbles using a hand drill with a plastering attachment to drive some air into the liquid.

Once the water had warmed up, retired childminder Helen climbed in via a ladder, and enjoyed a glass of wine and a long awaited soak.

Speaking about the makeshift jacuzzi, Helen said: “It was absolute heaven to me. It was really lovely to relax. We’ve just been using a shower in the garage so to have a soak was really nice.

“We’ve been in the garage for two years now, so I had been complaining about the lack of bath so Dave decided to shut me up. “Once I was in there, I didn’t want to get out. I stayed in for a good half an hour, once I had finished my wine.

“We even had some walkers go by while I was in there and said it looked nice. We might have to look at renting it out when the house is finished.”

She continued: “It had to have a couple of days of sun to warm the water up. We’d filled it up on the Saturday and I finally got in on the Monday.

“Just to make sure, I had a shower first so I was already a bit wet and it meant it wasn’t as cold. “Once I’d finished in the bath, we poured the water over the plants so we didn’t waste anything.”

Dave added: “Helen loves the jacuzzis at holiday parks so I promised we would put one in the new house. Ever since then she has been on to me about when she would be able to use it.

“After almost two years of nagging I had finally had enough and told her ‘she would have one very soon’ and that’s when I started filling the dump truck up. “She absolutely loved it so, for just a little bit of water and one bottle of bubble bath, it’s saved me a lot of earache. “The best part is you can just drive it round so it’s always in the sun.

You just have to go slowly so the water doesn’t spill.”
