How to keep my pool if I demolish my existing house?


Aug 2, 2020

I live in an old bungalow that I intended to demolish and rebuild in 10 years.

In the mean time, I want to get a pool and not have to wait 10 years to swim.

One of the most important criteria is to able to keep my new (to-be-built) pool and associated hardscaping and re-use it once the old house is demolished and rebuilt.

My land is 1/4 acre so decent size to play with.

Any idea how far setback I should build my pool from future building footprint?

I think we need many more details about the new house plans to comment. What type of house foundation would need to be dug?

I suggest you talk with some house builders about your house plans and find out what space they need to build your new house design.
