    Time for a pool house

    I built our pool 2 summers ago and we have now decided it is time for a pool house with a bathroom to keep all the wet people out of the house!
    We have decided to build a 14x14 building with an additional 8 feet of roof overhanging the pool patio that will eventually become an outdoor kitchen.

    Those of you that have built a pool house what should I consider when building it? It will have a full bathroom and space for a kitchenette. I am going to put in a bifold window that will open up to the eventual outdoor kitchen.

    Re: Time for a pool house

    What is your floor (foundation) going to be? In the state we live in, once your building is over a certain sq footage they consider it a to be a permanent structure and charge you property tax accordingly.

    I work for a company that does "out buildings" and if you are pulling a permit I would suggest you make your rafters from 2 x 6 to meet code.
    Don't have a pool right now. Just sharing what I have learned over the years!

    Do a Google image search for "pool house" and you may get a few ideas.

    Be sure to consider the flooring materiel used (slippery).

    Maybe a few things from this page: ... 412%2C4414
