Re: Old Garage to Pool Cabana

Great work @2Belindas. Love the timber panelling on the walls. I take it no steel was used for the roof? It's a great shape. 

 

Reminds me a little of our old studio project in that you kept two of the brick walls but opened it right up.

Thanks @aly my hubby and son team are awesome when they apply themselves to building and not to watching the footy or surfing!  

And @Kermit we used colourbond in Shale grey for the roof, with underside sheeting panels and Scyon timber look panelling - we designed it to suit our new house, which was a bit Hamptons style.

Re: Old Garage to Pool Cabana

Thinking about doing the same thing with an old carport with a shed at one end is your pool in the same yard as the cabana?

Hi @Geoff  Yes.  The pool is near-by.  We really did try and produce a home (and backyard) that buyers had to have.  We had 53 groups through our first open for inspection - they were lined up down the street and the house sold really quickly.  Converting that old garage was essential.
