Pool Basketball Gym Patio Backyard Project
We are really looking forward to seeing your designs. The central components of this design are a new pool, firepit, basketball gym, back patios, a kids playground and the backyard. Here are some specific ideas we have for each:
For cardinal references, the back of the house faces North.
⦁ Pool: Safe and fun for kids and adults
We are looking at trying to put a fairly large free form pool between the basketball gym patios and the house.
Fence - we want the pool to be as integrated into the patios and backyard as possible, yet we want to have the pool completely fenced in with one entrance and exit by the back patio.
Pool Cover - we will want to pool to accomodate a electric pool cover that will slide on tracks to cover the pool
- Swim up bar
We also considering a sunken swim up bar for the pool with bar stools in the pool. The bar would be accessible for serving outside the pool on the other side of the sunken bar. We are not certain about this design, but we would like to see the ideas you come up with.
⦁ Back Patio from House
Projector screen will lower down from the east side of the back patio to watch football games or movies from the pool.
⦁ Firepit -
not sure if this should be sunken in the ground or above ground, but we like the idea of incorporating a stone gas fire pit with seating around it
We are thinking of putting the kids playground on the west side of the basketball gym.
⦁ Basketball Gym and Patio
The concrete slabs for the basketball gym, shop, and patios are already poured so their location, along with the location of the house, cannot be changed. We'll have to work with the space we have. The gym is 45'x70' running east-west, with an attached 30'x24' workshop butting into the eastern side of the south end of the gym. The gym will also have 4 clear garage doors (pic attached) looking into the gym.
Drawings and pictures are attached.
NOTE: In the animated image of the Gym/Shop, the Shop shows to adjoin to the West End of the South Side of the Gym, but in reality, the Shop will adjoin to the East End of the South Side of the Gym. See the aerial drawing for the correct layout.
