Our Family Pool

Our Family Pool

A Place to Gather

The Project: What would we build as pool builders when we can build anything?

The Escape: A traditional design blended with modern day amenities of a pool and combination spa. A place for our family to gather and grow where dinner is prepped while the kids go swimming, fires are started to keep the cool nights warm and smores are always on supply. The spa should be close to the house, because we are keeping that thing running all winter, as it is the perfect escape on a snowy day.

Design Features

Spillway Waterfalls

Designing a spa that overflows into the pool creates a serene feature that connects the two bodies of water together.  We love having the waterfall sound close to the spa, as it helps drown out the noises of civilization that can creep into our special space.

Under Water Lighting (Plus)

Lights under the pool surface make it even more enjoyable to come out after sunset, removing the surface and producing an enjoyable glow for on everything it finds.  We coordinate our lighting with the surrounding landscaping so that we can set scenes and completely change the mood. We can run everything from an app that allows control of the lighting colors and status. It’s really amazing when you can have your kids sports team over and light up the pool and yard in team colors.

Water Features

We do not normally put lions heads with water features into our plans. When we saw the layout of the yard, it created this natural transition to build a pool with a higher wall in the back. The wall felt a little empty with just rock there, so we decided to play a little by adding these lions to the back. We still aren’t sure they are better than a nice waterfall, but they have become an iconic feature in our landscape.

Convenience Features

Automatic Fill Canister

Utilizing an automatic fill canister, you never have to refill your own pool water again. The system is buried parallel to the pool surface and incorporates a float system that matched the level of your spa all summer. When your water drops low, the connected water line is opened from a valve and water enters the spa.  It is a mechanical system with no electronics without incurring costs to maintain a perfect water level. The system gets winterized before the freezing temperatures hit, so the spa can be run all winter long. 

Spa Heater / Pool Heater

Spas need heat. Dialing in your temperature should be quick and easy and now you can do it from your mobile app before you put a toe in the water. With a titanium immersed heating element, these heaters have reached an incredible 96% thermal efficiency. Every pool we build gets a heater because it makes the season that much longer.
