This pool project has some cool elements all combined together to create an outdoor playground.
The main focal point from the house is the raised wall that contains a fire bar with stainless steel
spill edges and flower pots. The spa seats 8 people comfortably, is raised 18" and has rolled
ceramic tile with spill edges that match the pool spill edges. There is a nice
cozy seating area around the sunken fireplace made for cushions and comfort. Right
next to it is space for a tableand chairs. Artificial grass was used to give a really lush feel to
the project along with low maintence. The PebbleSheen color is Aqua Blue. We used Austin
stone and Leuder's limestone (bullnozed on the chair backings and pool and spa coping).
The bar areahas a overhang for the barstools. The large tanning ledge centers on the main door.
On the far side away from thefireplace is a really cool bed swing area inspired by the owners'
trip to the Carribean. It's a queen size mattress hanging from the cedar arbor that has an acrylic
panel to keep the rain out. Curtains are for privacy and to help keep the sun out when wanted.
