We had a wedding.
Then we had a grand baby!
What does a grand baby need?
A swimming pool of course.
“Need” might be stretching it a little.
Steve and I knew we wanted a swimming pool. Our two previous homes had pools and our football field backyard was the perfect place for the final phase of our home renovation.
Pool construction started in April 2018.
We knew we wanted a rectangle with a sun shelf. The sun shelf is perfect for babies and old dogs who still love the water
It was fun to pick out the tile, edging and pavers.
Due to early summer storms, it took longer than expected to complete the pool, however the end result is exactly what we were looking for and we were even able to use the pool for about a month before the water was too cold to get in. I know, us Florida folk are wimpy when it comes to cold water.
The pool is located across the driveway which meant a fence would be a necessity completely surrounding the pool area.
New planters and a beautiful black fence were installed
Excuse my open garage doors……..
A 6′ sun shelf on one end and a sitting shelf on the other end.
A metal bench with cute upholstered cushions
2 single loungers as well as a double lounger allow for many sun bathers.
The brown boxes were built by Steve and I and they hold large umbrellas that will shade the above mentioned sunbathers!
A black iron cafe table allows for sweet mornings of coffee and bible reading.
Phase III will show the new pool house.
