I would just as soon it was a spa….
Old Barn being torn down slowly, plan on using the wood in the new farmhouse, sans bugs!!!
II  The phrase would just as soon means the user would   II
prefer one option to another.
It is a comparative phrase that sometimes
leaves off the second half of the comparison.
The confusion comes when the phrase is heard instead of read.
If the speaker’s annunciation isn’t clear, 
as soon can be interpreted assume.
 In some cases, assume can make sense in the sentence
(e.g., I’d just assume it was a spa),
but the actual phrase is as soon.
In regard to Shawfarming...
“The Farm” is the next best thing to a spa! Really!!

It is peaceful and calming…
It’s a place to get away from it all, you really don’t have to do anything, or you can sweat out all your toxins (just requires a bit more physical activity).  You can clear your mind and your head just sitting on the porch feeling the refreshing Moulton breeze.  You can listen to the peace and quiet of birds singing and branches rustling or you can turn up the music as loud as you please (the cows might mind, but who cares!).  You can don your robe, put your hair and your feet up; then read a book for hours without distraction.

Except for the constant sound of St. Philip relaxing in his own way…constructing!  For now this is his happy place, his spa of sorts.  I’m sure he’d enjoy a good novel or a good nap, but there is work to be done and
here it doesn't seem so much like WORK! 
One weekends work (the wall)
  And every once in a while, if necessary I join in….

Even if it's just decorating the almost finished space!!

Gracefully Spafarming, B
