Why would I build a pool?

If you have kids or grandchildren then building a pool is a no-brainer. Kids and families love pools on hot summer days. In fact it’s hard to beat having a swim in your own in-ground pool in the withering summer heat.

A pool is a pool – no matter how humble. Check out the smiles on the kids’ faces.

If you view your home as a bit of a show-piece, then a well designed pool is the perfect focal point to highlight your taste – a phenomenon borne witness to over and over again in any architectural or home design magazine.

Swimming pools are first world excesses – if you have the spare cash (or can borrow it like most do) and like to reward / spoil yourself and your family then… why not?
