POOLHOUSE

This poolhouse in this month's AD made me DROOL! Designed by 'Historical Concepts' for a plantation in South Carolina -this would be the ideal place for a twilight cocktail party among 1000's of tealights or a restful afternoon spot for a nap and a good book! The pool looks ornamental but is probably fully functional as well. The fact that it is indoors means it doesn't need one of those hideous fences required by code!



The symetrical neoclassical lines and the large french doors that open it into the garden are what really attract me. The look of the outdoors would work equally as well for a residence as a poolhouse!
