*the swim up bar??
So we are getting down to the nitty gritty of the details, discussing our wishes with 3 final PB's, have ruled out some things (beach entry) and made other things a must (spa, swg, led) - and we are stuck on the swim up bar.
One of the PB's seems to not want to do it at all, said "don't do the pit" - said it's dangerous, ugly, etc. We have a smaller type yard, and tying in an adult dry/wet seating area seemed to make sense - swim up bar is a must for the wife. Another PB threw out an unreasonable amount for the upgrade as if to discourage us. Nobody really has come up with a creative way to have 3-4 stools in the water, and also room for 3-4 dry folks to sit and enjoy the pool. The best plan i've seen is one that had a two level oval bar, one at pool deck level, a 10' oval pit, some planters to block the wall, and a different raised bar top on the outside for the "dry" folks.
anyone do a swim up bar that can have some dry folks sitting outside? Nobody giving a great thought, and wife wants to be able to work the bar by being inisde the pit, and tending to swimmers and non. Also want it as a nerve center for the yard, stereo in the bar, ice chest (no bbq, that will be near the upper patio) and really just an adult liquor station, that we can use at parties when folks arent swimming....pls advise/post some pics of things that worked!!
