Project by Pool Craft

To realize this homeowner’s vison, Pool Craft worked closely with the client every step of the way to ensure each detail of this project was reviewed with a fine-tooth comb to avoid any unnecessary mistakes or oversights. Although this project started in the fall of 2019 and was finished in May 2020, which was not the target completion date, the delay was not a result of site challenges. In fact, COVID-19 created some unforeseen delays, which impacted the construction schedule. In this regard, the client was extremely accommodating while Pool Craft worked through the challenges caused by the pandemic.

Being avid entertainers and hosts of family gatherings, this homeowner in Vaughan, Ont., called upon the pool builder to design and build a complete backyard oasis perfect for guests of all ages. The property, which includes mature trees protected by conservation land, provides the perfect backdrop for the 5.5- x 10.6-m (18- x 34-ft) rectangular pool with 5.5-m (18-ft) wide vinyl-over-steel (VOS) steps and a 1.8-m (6-ft) VOS bench situated in the pool’s deep end adjacent to a strategically placed firepit in the patio area. The 83,600-L (22,084-gal) pool is equipped with a charcoal-coloured automatic cover, which co-ordinates with the colour palette selected for the backyard’s design.

Not only does the full-print, dark blue pool liner offer a sharp contrast between the water and natural stone coping of the patio, it also showcases the client’s distinctive artistic impression of the project. The patio also includes a luxurious covered area and deck 3.6 x 11.5 m (12 x 38 ft) off the house with a natural gas fireplace, built-in kitchen, and space for generous seating and dining space, which offers the homeowner the perfect place to relax by the pool or enjoy a sumptuous meal with family and friends.

The porcelain-finished wall under the raised deck and custom sheds positioned at the rear of the lot are in keeping with the overall modern, clean look of the backyard design and are tailored to the client’s taste. Additional features such as the landscape lighting and irrigation system lend the ‘wow’ factor to this backyard paradise.

  1. This is one of the dream houses for all. These amazing houses with pools in backyards seem so luxurious and expensive too. As a fashion designer, I’m selling boob sweat towel after the bath.
