Building the Ultimate Backyard Pool House was a decision by a young couple to invest in their backyard to the fullest instead of buying a cottage and having to manage two properties and travel to get to a cottage. This beautiful 800 square foot area is a great place to spend time with family and friends.
It was built on 3 foot concrete footings and piers, with faux stone on the front and interior. Fully equipped with a full bathroom, tile floors, mold resistant drywall, a kitchen sink, an outdoor shower, fully equipped stainless steel (rust resistant) cabinetry, stainless steel dishwasher, stainless steel double wide refrigerator, custom wide double-edge bar with granite top, and a full wood burning fireplace.
The 8-week project started at the end of summer and finished in the spring. The frame consists of 2 x 6 boards, and the walls between the bathroom and the kitchen are insulated for privacy and safety fire code because the barbecue backs up to the washroom. The fully-vaulted, coffered, boxed ceiling features a breathable soffit and recessed lighting all throughout. The roof features 30-year architectural shingles.
