We signed a contract but won’t be building until July (I’m in Michigan) just trying to think through things. Our pool will be only about 20 ft from our house. We will fence a part of our backyard (but most of it) with one of the 4 sides being the house. We are going to put the equipment pad on the side of the house. Our pb thinks we should put it on the outside of the fence. We are thinking we should put it inside the fence so that we don’t have to go out the gate (there will be a gate there) to get to the equipment. Plus that extra spot can be decked and be a good place to store all the pool toys. We also like that the equipment will be more protected inside the fence. We thought we could build a small decorative wall to block it from view, if need be. Is there a reason we should do it like our pb suggests, outside of the fence? Thanks!
