Pool and Cabana

This remodel and addition is a two phase project consisting of a major remodel and addition on the main house and a new pool and cabana separate from the main structure.

The living and dining room area of the main house have been expanded and a wet bar added to the dining area. A new media room was also created. The roof over living and dining was lifted up and simplified by having a center ridge beam that ties the whole area together. The higher roof also enables more light to enter the room by adding windows up high on the south side and nice tall windows on either side of new fireplace. By moving the fireplace to the center of the north wall were it lines up with the ridge and simplifying the space both living and dining areas are more coherent and functional. Large sliding glass wall opens the south side of the living and dining up to the back yard entertaining area.

The pool and cabana are both completely new construction on a previously underutilized part of the property. This is the ultimate entertaining area complete with pool area, fire pit, covered dining area, large barbeque, extensive outdoor decks and for the rainy days enclosed pool cabana with wet bar and bathroom. The new pool and cabana are tucked into existing forest of mature aspen and spruce trees that provide both shelter and privacy.
