Pool House Inspirations

Classic Cape Cod

Low Country Style - don't ya just want to sit on the porch with a mint julep?

Not sure what to call this, but I luv it.

more Cape Cod shingle style

Ahh! Cape Cod, gambrel roof perfection!

I have been helping a sweet friend with ideas for a backyard redo. I absolutely adore coming-up with ideas to spend someone else's money. Don't you? My friend wants to remodel her garage and back house into a larger garage with an upstairs game room/guest get-away with a veranda and pool cabana below. I so can help her with this. These pictures were what I used as my inspiration for my designs. (My designs that I did not photograph before I gave them to her. I still draft by hand. Hey, I'm old-fashioned that way!) The main house is a classic, Georgian design. She wanted the back house to be a little different. I thought a Cape Cod, shingle style or maybe a little low-country influence would compliment nicely. We will have to wait and see what happens, as they are still planning. Me? I'll take any of the above. Enjoy!
