Brief Explanation of the Scope of Work
This pool addition was part of a larger project for a middle-aged couple planning for their retirement years. They wanted a low impact form of exercise within their home. (The addition included an elevator). The cost for the pool was $25,000, and with the addition a total of $90,000.
Unusual Constraints/Challenges & Creative Solutions
The challenges we faced included a north-facing elevation and a tight job site space. Heating and cooling had to be carefully engineered. The pool design required ample room in the basement for the pool’s foundation and equipment, including a sub-panel, pump, filter, heater, and storage for pool supplies.
The creative aspects required by this job consisted of designing multiple skylights, lights and in-pool lighting. A tumbled marble deck was designed around the pool with radiant heat under it. Basement space requirements were met by digging out an adjacent crawl space into a full basement. A good deal of under-pinning was required.
The overall result was a compact, efficient workout facility, which doubled as an exciting entertaining area for family and friends. The customers were very happy with the finished product.
