This sun trap of a plot was the perfect spot for an oak framed pool house and swimming pool. The Pool house we designed to incorporate an outdoor under cover entertainment area with tongue & groove panelling in the vaulted ceiling of an outdoor dining area which looked out onto the surrounding country side & pool. Leading on from this area through a personnel door is a lovely internal open planned space of the building that doubles up as a changing room, garden room and kitchenette.
The oak beams are visible which help to structure and section these buildings for their multiple uses, and also help create beautiful spaces internally.
Towards the rear of this oak frame building there is a bathroom and then in a separate section a secure plant room which hides all the machinery, filters and pump equipment used to run the gorgeous pool our clients had fitted after the works of the pool house were done.
Larch weatherboard has been used which as you can see has started to silver with the oak frame. All doors and windows have been painted in sadolin superdec grey paint and look great against the aluminium guttering and slate tiles on the gable shaped roof.
A custom sized mullion window at the rear has been used, as well as four full length French doors at the front that allow a lot of natural light into the building. All the joinery is hand made here in the UK and all glazing is double glazed. The full length French doors have a central opening pair that open out onto the pool area.
Our clients have done a fantastic job with the internal fitting out of the pool house and is another great example of a successful lockdown project, worthy to be proud of. Further elements on the outside of the building such as lighting, outdoor speakers/entertainment system & outdoor heaters further help this building and outdoor area to be enjoyed during the day & the evening in this secluded spot.
This pool house has now been made available to hire as part of an eco-friendly & vegan Air bnb stay away that our clients have started offering in a beautiful part of the country just outside of Lewes in East Sussex.
