New North Dallas Modern
Love this site! Any question I've had- I've typed into Google have invariably been led here. Also great to see so many local DFW folks being vocal on the site.
We're building a Los Angeles style modern architecture pool to replace the oversized koi pond that was located in the courtyard of our mid-century modern house. Basically, you walk up to what you assume is the front door to our house, and when you step through it, you aren't in the house yet, but a large courtyard that then leads you to the real front door. Rather than sticking a large pool in the back yard, we wanted a smaller pool (oversized hot tub?) in this courtyard so that it greets us when we come home, and we can see it through the large window in our living room.
Here are the concept drawings:
And our "Before" pic with the Koi pond still on place...
We've already had the dig, plumbing, electrical, and gunite. Now we're in the watering/curing phase, and naturally things have ground to a halt, so I should have plenty of time to waste on here!
