The Place to Escape
The Project: We need a place to start fresh, to escape the surrounding world around us including our own house which is still be renovated.
The Escape: Transform the entire back yard into a space where we can live and play. With a top priority is making sure the princess castle can see the entire yard, we set out to build the perfect escape. The family is in the middle of a heavy renovation, relocated themselves into the basement, so building this project not only gave them something to escape to, became ultimately the MAIN space for outdoor time.

Waterfall with Natural Rocks
The waterfall becomes an instant focal piece in this design. Using only real stone and controlling the flow path of the water we are able to create a perfect scene that can be repeated any time you need it.
Designing a spa that overflows into the pool creates a serene feature that connects the two bodies of water together. With a touch of the remote app, you can add waterfall sounds close to the spa, helping to push back the noises of civilization that can creep into our special space.
Under Water Lighting
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 can run everything from an app that allows control of the lighting colors and status. Intellibrite LED lights have changed what is possible for pool lighting.
Floor Cleaning Automated
Having a the floor cleaning system gives everybody a head start on keeping this pool perfect. Like a well synchronized orchestra spread throughout the pool, the in-floor jets rotate a cycle of water pressure, keeping debrief off the surface and headed into the filters. This is the Cyclean system from Paramount Pool & Spa Systems which has really made pool cleaning effortless.
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.
