Adding a Swimming Pool to Your Home’s Yard

Review the blueprints of your custom home. Even though it might be ready for you to move in, you still feel as though something is missing. Even so, the design of your new home isn’t set in stone – in other words, you can continue to make changes even after construction is complete. Do you want to add a swimming pool sometime this summer? Don’t hesitate to go for it!

Find a Pool Builder 

The first step is to find a custom home builder that is more than willing to help you out. After the custom home is complete, you can talk to your home builder partner about any upgrades or additions you want to have integrated over the next few years. Speeding that timeline up is as simple as picking up the phone or sending an email. You just need someone who has the tools and know-how to install a pool in your yard. 

Pick the Best Spot 

Your new swimming pool is just as important as the rest of your custom home. This means that you need to choose the perfect spot for it to go. After all, you don’t want it to be too shady or too sunny, because both conditions could make it too hot or too cold to enjoy your time in the water. Looking at the dimensions of the pool and the yard is the best way to move forward. If you want to have an outdoor kitchen right next to the pool, then you have to plan for that. 

Select the Shape 

Pools come in all shapes and sizes. Finding the right for you can be easier said than done. Wherever the pool ends up, that will help determine the most functional shape for it. Squares, rectangles, and ovals are some of the most popular choices.

Consider Safety Features 

It’s one thing to put a pool fence and a self-latching gate around the water and call it a day. You also need to think about where ladders and entry steps will go. A diving board is a great addition to the pool, but if it’s too easy to climb up onto it, then you could have a serious problem on your hands.
