This pool house project was the final phase of the custom build of the clients’ dream home. It’s the centerpiece of a backyard retreat with an in-ground pool, hot tub, gardens, al fresco dining, sitting areas, two open-air fire pits, and a putting green.   

The classic shingle-style architectural design and hip roof complements the main home and carriage house on the property. Interiors and the adjacent patio seating use a cohesive coastal color scheme to blend indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces seamlessly.   Material selections throughout are organic and durable to emphasize the importance of bringing the outside in. For example, high ceilings in ash wood are finished with a clear stain and paired with retractable floor-to-ceiling accordion doors.   A fully equipped kitchen features stainless steel cabinetry exclusively made to stand up to the elements. And, the island is wrapped in a panna white jambstock (usually used for waterproofing showers) to withstand wet or sandy feet.  

From the Judges
The pool house feels like a cozy cabin. Judges praised the tile in the powder room, the cabinet colors, and the functional space.
