Pool Houses - What Will Yours Look Like?
Summerwood offers many styles of pool sheds, all of which you can modify with details to suit your needs. Or design your pool house from the ground up in our pool cabanas design center. Your final design will be a mix of the practical and decorative. For instance, you may want to complement your surroundings and home. (Then again maybe not. Have some fun. Be different.) Do I want bar windows for entertaining, partitions for changing, an outdoor shower? You'll also need to think about the seasons it's not in use. Do you insulate? What about plumbing and wiring to code? These all affect your design choices.
If you want, send us drawings of your dream pool house and we will work with you to create a design that fits the bill for your style and tastes.
