Pool House Progress: Accessories

Guess what we did this weekend.  I’ll give you a hint:


More tile in the pool house!!  We really know how to have fun.


When the pool was initially built, everything immediately surrounding the pool had tile.  As the new structure settled, some of the tile cracked, a ladder on the deep end was removed, and outdoor grade carpet covered everything.


Only the bathroom hadn’t been tiled and was a quarter of an inch lower than the rest of the floor.  Ben laid sheets of 1/4 inch Hardie backer to even it out, then carried the tile into the room.


From there, the tile continues into the home of the future kitchen, going under the cabinet locations.


Unfortunately, the white ’tile’ edge is molded into upper fiberglass portion forming the pool walls.  Without completely reforming the pool, it has to stay.  Womp, womp, woooomp.


From this angle, it looks like we’re finished with our tiling adventure, but we still have about half left.


All of the angled cuts took longer than the previous section, but it’s really taking shape.


With the end of the project drawing nearer each weekend, I’m slowly stockpiling accessories as I find something I like.  Due to the nature of the room, accessories will be limited, so I’d like for each one to be both fun and functional with maximum impact.
