Modern pool house designs; a family backyard cabana

Here at Greenspan, we’re always amazed at our customers’ creativity, especially when it comes to contemporary pool house designs. For Denis on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, even the family fur baby enjoys the backyard cabana.

A pool house, home gym, outdoor living room and general space for the whole family – Denis is thrilled with his Melwood Cabana. Pepper, the pet Cavoodle, seems impressed too.

“We really love our poolside Mod, which we have had for over a year now.”

Denis purchased a Melwood Mod Design 21, measuring 5mx3.7m featuring a Colorbond® roof in “Surfmist”and pre-primed weatherboard exterior cladding, which he painted white. With lush tropical landscapes as its backdrop and a sparkling inground swimming pool adjacent, Denis’ oasis has to be one of our favourite pool house designs.

“We like its elegance and it fits right into our backyard beside the pool without dominating the garden. We managed to match the look with our house seamlessly.”

Fitted out internally with gyprock walls, laminate floor boards, lighting and even an A/C unit for all-year comfort, the backyard cabana gets plenty of use by the whole family.

“While it works well as a general pool cabana, we have installed a large screen so it works well for the kids’ gaming activity or dad’s footy watching, away from the main house.”

Versatility is one of the main considerations when it comes to choosing suitable pool house designs. Most families need multi-purpose living space that can easily be used during off-season months when the pool isn’t so frequently utilised.

“It is also an exercise studio where we have the running machine and yoga mats/weights installed.”

With a double door upgrade as well as extra windows and doors to allow maximum natural light, the view from the pool cabana is set to be sunny 12 months of the year.

Denis says, “All in all, a great addition and used by all our family.”
