As we inch closer and closer to summer and the midday temps continue to climb, there is just one thing on our mind… it’s time to beat the heat with some serious pool time!
Living in Utah, the desert heat can take its toll during the hot summer months. Whether you’re in the mountains, the valley or the desert – or sweating it out somewhere else in the Intermountain West – the dry summer heat makes having a backyard escape all the more appealing. And while having a pool is great, creating a backyard oasis for your family and friends is even better.
Pool House Designs
Whether you’re looking for a rustic pool house design, a modest pool house shed, a metal pole barn with a lean-to or a luxury pool house design, you have near unlimited options when building a pool house.
Custom Pole Barn Pool House
Pole barns make excellent pool houses for a number of reasons. First and foremost, the customizability of pole buildings means you can create a custom pool house design to match your personal style or your home’s aesthetic. Exterior touches like Jasperwood stained cedar wood and batten siding, overhangs, a flying gable and sliding pole barn doors can make your pool house design your own, while interior options such as insulation, concrete floors or a loft can provide both function and comfort for those long days lounging around the pool.
A pole barn lean-to is another great pool house design feature. One of Beehive Buildings’ most popular pole building accessories, a lean-to can function as a covered patio for your pool house. Whether you want to string up a couple of hammocks, create an open-air living room or build your dream outdoor kitchen, the extra space from a lean-to provides you a shaded place to do as you please.
In addition to giving you complete control over your pool house design, pole barns can serve multiple functions, are more cost-effective than many other types of buildings and can be built much more quickly than other types of buildings. (Check out the pros and cons of pole buildings.)
Pool House Shed
If your space is limited and you’re looking for a pool house that is much smaller than 20′ x 30′ (smallest pole barn build for a reasonable value), a pool house shed might be the best option for you.
Perfect for modest needs and smaller budgets, pool house sheds provide basic poolside storage. There are tons of shed options in many sizes and styles; however, even the top-end models provide little more function than storage.
How much does it cost to build a pool house?
As with any construction project, it depends.
Beehive Buildings’ pole barns range in price depending on the size, accessories and upgrades of each build. Pole buildings can cost as little as $20,000 or as much as $135,000 (or more). On average, however, most pole buildings fall in the $35,000 to $70,000 range.
The cost to build a pole barn pool house really depends on your design. For instance, a simple pool house shed to store all of your pool toys, equipment and pool furniture will cost significantly less than a luxury pool house design with all of the bells and whistles.
As for pool house sheds, you can find them for as little as a couple hundred dollars or as much as $15,000 (or more).
