Default Pool House / Cabanna - Let's see'um

Looking at having a Pool House or Cabanna built this fall but kinda undecided on what I want. If you have one, post up a picture so I can get some ideas.....

I will come up with a picture tomorrow. Our pool area is bordered on the N. end by the house, on the S. and W. side by a 6' privacy fence, and on the E. end by the pool house. Everything is built in the same brick.

The pool house is approx 35x12, with a bunch of windows on the pool side. One small full bath and a big open room with a sectional sofa, chairs, and a coffee table. Mostly a place for the grown-ups to hang out in the A/C while the kid(s) swim. Wife has it decorated in a beachy theme.

The important end (backside) of the pool house is the 35x20 workshop with a walk-up attic.

It is almost a southwestern or Mediterranean feel with the enclosed "compound" around the pool. We also really liked the setup at the Duval House in Key West (also a compound) and you might be able to google that.

Can't wait to see it. My plans are to build my shop on the back end as well but will include a bar top with 2 - 3 stools along with a sitting area along with a vent free fireplace, flat screen, couch / chairs for the adults. I want the open ceiling concept with LED "puck lights" in the rafters and of course a hammock on the open end......

Maybe I can post our plans. We are starting a pool and cabana within days. The design has taken about a year and a half..........but I like what we have now.

Main design element for us was to not have something so large behind us that it looked like another house. The first architect kept making it too large and boxy. We own the lot/house behind us and made it into a guest house so we already have another house behind us. And we wanted the cabana to compliment the pool and foster interaction between those in the pool and those at the cabana. The cabana will have a sink/changing area, a half bathroom, outdoor shower behind it, a small storage room and an open area facing the pool.

It is not a bar so no bar stools and other "bar" stuff. No TV as we already have an outdoor TV on the lanai attached to the main house. And no outdoor kitchen because we already have enough stuff to clean and keep up with and are not looking for more -- we will have an icemaker so folks can have ice water but that is is it.

Thanks guys-
Pitch is 12/12
As for the orange fencing - the damn contractor needs to straighten up those posts and tighten the fencing and we'll be good to go.....
Here's another:
The owner here too liked the orange fence theme

This one we did a murphy bed inside so it doubles as a little kitchen/spare bedroom with a loft for the kids, bathroom and exterior shower on one side and dry towel storage on the other

I am assuming that you are the builder...did you subcontract the pool too, or did you just build the actual structure?

Around here we're allowed a 200 Sq. Ft. Pool House with a full bathroom as an accessory structure. You can have as many accessory structures (pool houses, sheds, garages) on your property as long as they all meet the side yard and wetlands setbacks (if there are wetlands). However a shed and garage cannot have a bathroom. Most people are building 2 pool houses (his & hers) each 200 Sq. Ft. approximately 20 feet+/- apart from each other with a connecting roof. Seems there's a loop hole in the law someone figured out where you can have a connecting roof between the structures. Makes a great shelter for an outdoor kitchen, etc.

Just a thought if you have the room on your property and the $$$

i think where you are has a lot to do with it. here we have palapas...no real "living" space or accommodations like bedrooms or bathrooms but more like open air space with bars and loungers etc. works well here where it only rains little more than 2 in a year and we have 360 days of sunshine and almost no humidity.

Actually the architect. The GC co-ordinated the project with his crew and the appropriate subs including a pool sub-contractor.

Our codes are pretty strict too and limit the size and height of accessory structures. Bedroom count is connected to septic system size. Cabana's are fun things to design-cntered around having fun!

I going to move mine I just did not dig the hole deep enough. I went by the plans Bubba drawed out for me, don't know where I went wrong. But I know the next one will a two holer, We been having a lot of kin folk over in the last few months. I not going to get a permit, I'm going to keep it on the down low, and maybe I won't get caught.

Don't really have pool house, just have a bathroom in side of the screened in porch. Only has toilet and sink but large enough to change in. It's on the right side of house.
