Read how we designed and built this contemporary, year-round poolside summer house to complement this Sussex family's new home.
The project – an Executive Pent poolside summer house
These Sussex-based clients were in the process of having a new house built to accommodate their growing family, and were looking for a poolside summer house with a shower room.
We completed this poolside room project alongside our agent Waterstream/Compass Pools. The pool room we designed and built has everything you need for a swimming pool, including a changing room with shower - as well as a year-round entertainment space.
Martin Baker provided the clients with an initial quotation, and a subsequent free site survey enabled us to complete the design and finalise costs before going ahead with the project.
The work - designing the poolside summer house
Our client wanted their new poolside summer house to be somewhere they could sit and relax, while also offering a changing space with a shower for use before and after dips in the pool.
The Sussex family decided on a contemporary design with the clever touch of matching the exterior colour with the woodwork on the windows of their newly-built house, thus integrating the poolside room with their stunning home and garden.
The pool they decided on was Compass' own brand, 11x4m with a Villeroy & Boch "just silence" hot tub.
They chose a 18' x 12' room with aluminium colour matched bi-folding doors, matched with the exterior Medite Tricoya Extreme (MTX) V groove cladding in a modern "RAL 7032" colour. The other windows were also finished in matching aluminium, along with a fire wall to the rear.
In order to get the maximum inside head height our clients selected a Firestone EPDM roof, offering the lowest maintenance option possible with a guarantee from us of ten years, and by the manufacturer of an excess of 20 years.
Finishing the interior in the Vertical V-groove version of MDF painted in 'Timeless' ensured the room kept the fully integrated look and the laminate flooring in "Florence" complemented the colours perfectly.
The result - a stunning Sussex, year-round poolside summer house
Our client was delighted with the process and the finished result of their Sussex poolside summer house:
"We are very pleased with the end product. Martin oversees the process from start to finish and along with his highly skilled team provide a seamless client service experience. It is rare to find a small local business that can combine an excellent product with the client service to match."
