Cabanas and Pool Side Additions that Make a Splash
With summer in full swing the team at The House Plan Company has put together a collection of plans that would make a fantastic addition to any backyard. Whether you are looking to up your pool side experience with the addition of a cabana or create the ultimate outdoor living room these designs are sure to make a splash!
Designed with the sunny southwest in mind the Mountain Casita design #85405 offers 1580 square feet of flexible recreation space. Five roll up doors fill the front wall allowing the design to be completely opened to the outdoors. A large, covered patio extends the sheltered outdoor living and enhances it with a grill counter. An ideal accompaniment to a swimming pool, the Mountain Casita offers a beverage bar, a full bathroom, and a steam room!
Those looking to expand their pool side game, look no further than the Cabana Cool design #30866. At 400 square feet, this cabana offers a space to escape the sun while still enjoying the outdoors. Along the back wall is a fireplace which is framed by built-ins. Around the back side of the design are two storage closets to help with pool maintenance and organization.
The Corea Pavillion is a great design for those looking to add to their outdoor experience. This 1008 square foot design is an ideal center piece to any backyard – with or without a swimming pool. The covered space has a half wall that wraps around three sides offering a grill area and wet bar. Entertaining is easy in this space between the outdoor kitchen and firepit.
At only 456 square feet the Driftwood Poolhouse packs a big punch. A vaulted lanai is centered around a fireplace. Behind sliding barn doors, a TV cabinet is kept out of sight but easily revealed on game day for the ultimate watch party. To the side of the lanai is a bar and grill. The bar is lined by an eating bar allowing guests to mingle and chat with the grill king or mix master. Along the back is a full bathroom with a bench and shelves making the transition from the lounge to the pool easy.
Looking for a poolside addition that provides an optional guest room? The search ends at the Bar Hop design. A studio space with a full bathroom and closet could serve as a detached guest room for those who enjoy entertaining but want to offer overnighters their own space. Between the studio and the large recreation room is a half bathroom with direct access to the outdoors, an excellent feature for a pool side structure, along with a storage closet. The recreation room can be opened through a roll up door on the right side. Along the side is a long counter with a sink and for those warm summer afternoons the entertaining can spill out to the outdoor kitchen which is framed by a long eating bar.
