    Pool Plans

    Well I decided as I get closer to pulling the plug on doing my pool, I would post up the first rendering cut.

    Couple of notes, these are the first cut, there are already things I want changed and few things forgotten. My wife's cousin and I worked on the renderings and she is a resort hotel architect and will leverage her contacts for us.



    Wetbar. The sun crosses at 90 degrees to this location so there will be shade there all day. it will have full power and water and fridge



    The pool will be 5m wide, 12m long and will start at 1.3m in shallow end and taper down to 2.5m at the deep end



    The steps on the right on the deck were a thought for the Jacuzzi we already have but we will just put on the deck and make stairs to it. This way if the Jacuzzi takes a dive I can just remove it



    There will be a waterfall feature but it will not be part of the pool.

    All of the pool pumps and filtering system will be installed behind the wet bar area enclosed so you can walk in and do what you need servicing wise.

    Again, first cut, a few more touch ups before it locked in.

    Why was the pool an afterthought? I would have built the house around it myself.

    Well yes and no Snubs. We left a section of our property open under the premise we might add one later. The reason was we were living and working in the states and if we built house around a pool so to speak it would have never been maintained and been a mess as we were not here. we wanted to build our house then settle in and add a pool

    ^ Where are the steps to enter/exit the pool?

    I have a small bar next to our pool and behind it have a small shower/toilet and a second small room for pool equipment/chemicals. These have been extremely useful... if you have room.

    That was one of the misses on the rendering was the steps on the side of the pool.

    Yes there will be a outside shower area. We already have a full bath downstairs which is what I call our mud room but will be used as a changing area I suspect

    LOOKS GREAT!

    MissFarmGirl, the Boys and myself are inviting ourselves to the pool opening party


    Personally? ... maybe some more shade, either through a structure or moveable parasols?

    I worry about the timber deck/pool interface with the splash from the pool degrading where the pool edge and the deck meet.

    Is that an Americanism? pulling the plug in the UK means stopping, did you mean pulling the trigger? sorry if that comes across all Syb.

    I was wondering about that.

    'Pull the plug' means give up on it all so I was a bit confused why you'd gone so far with plans and stuff only to decide against it.

    The nice thing, the pool will be on the side of the house shading it from the hot afternoon sun. I will have some shade ideas and will make adjustments after we let it settle in. I have done this with homes I had with pools in the states. Having movable set ups are best versus fixed because things change.

    The Deck will come up next to the edge on 2 sides of the pool but not touch but will get wet. The other 2 sides will be far off the deck as the pool will cascade over the edge. The plan still is to use "engineered" wood. I am researching brands now. It was discussed about making a raised cement deck but it was a lot of cement I would suck in a lot of heat. It still may be the way we go.

    I still have some further rendering and touch ups before final design. we will have lights in the pool and various lighting around it.

    All is still constrained a bit

    I will let you know....I love me a good pool party. I will have a full well stocked wet bar, a music system and a TV on the wall.

    Yes, especially my Golden Retriever who currently lives in water to stay cool.. I may find her sitting on a pool chair in the morning waiting to go in...

    We do Kennel our dogs at night so no worries of late night dips in the pool

    Yeah, conwood is the way to go.

    It will degrade, as david mentions, but it's easy and cheap to replace and absorbs the heat fairly well. A one yard length of conwood right at the border of the pool would make sense. Then you can just pull it up and replace easily.

    Yeah I agree Cyrille. It will degrade over time like everything here but if you use good deck screws you just back them out and drop in a new piece. I told my wife we can buy a few extra planks and store them in the shop. Its easy to work with.

    Well, i think you need to factor in a doggy plunge pool. If you don't your filter will collect enough hair for a jumper over a year.

    Well my new job will be keeping her in the pool she has now. She listens very well which is good. As long as she can see me she will sit in her pool all day....

    My Lab......well that's an entirely different story. She is crazy. However she is not a big water dog. She is a priss. She stands in water up to her stomach but does not go under. She is more of a digger, neighbor chicken killer and cat chaser albeit they never come in our yard. They know better. OH yeah she chases and eats Jinjocks and Tokay's and oddly enough eats caterpillars of our hedges (The big green ones). Damn dog can sniff them out then loves to walk up to my wife and show her the big green thing hanging out of her mouth. Wife freaks and yells at me to come get my dog.
