This home already had a beautiful pool and a fully landscaped backyard, but they desired an outdoor living room accenting the space. Knowing this, the back side of the pool became the perfect place to create and build an outdoor living area.
This freestanding pool house is about 375 SF and has an outdoor kitchen, double-sided fireplace, a living area, and a bartop counter for dining. The space also features a gable roof and a vaulted ceiling. We used a stained tongue and groove with cedar beams. The columns are wrapped in Hardie and painted with stone bases that match the kitchen fascia and the fireplace. All of the stone complements the pool coping to make a more cohesive outdoor living space. The flooring is a wide, plank-stamped concrete.
We also installed two large fans to create a nice breeze on those hot summer days. To optimize the backyard space, we built a double-sided fireplace with seating on the backside, great for large gatherings. Along with the custom-built fireplace, we installed Bromic Platinum heaters. A perfect way to keep the outdoors nice and cozy on those chilly days and nights.
This kitchen has an RCS grill, storage area, trash drawer, and an outdoor-rated fridge. The counter is granite and provides plenty of space to prep and serve. Lights were hung over the counter, bringing the perfect decorative touch to the outdoor space.
