Pool Design

BLOG-Pool-DesignFor nearly 25 years Sterling Custom Homes has been recognized as the elite Austin Home Builder. We have built hundreds of unique custom homes in nearly all of the high-end communities in the Austin / Lakeway areas. The vast majority of our homes are designed around the outdoor living space, which invariably includes a swimming pool.

Custom swimming pools come in a variety of shapes and sizes and incorporate many fun, interesting concepts. From swim-up bars to grottos tucked behind waterfalls to firepits and water features, the possibilities are truly endless.

When designing the home, many people think that the swimming pool design needs to be finalized prior to construction. We prefer, when possible, to simply “save the space” for the pool and get into the details of swimming pool design after the foundation has been poured and the house has been framed up. This allows our clients to get a better feel for the pool/house relationship and enables them to take advantage of the precise view corridors that they wish to showcase.

However, sometime we find that access is limited or impossible based on the lot characteristics and neighboring properties. In these cases we spend much more time up-front on the pool design. We then construct the pool foundation first, prior to the home foundation. In these instances it becomes very important to understand and visualize the pool/house relationship – even before the house construction has begun.
