i want to live at that house with that pool.  outdoor pool.  beautiful homes.  outdoor living.

Pool in the north east corner of garden, against boundary wall, with raised bed between pool and wall, and plants hiding vibracrete. Leaves space between pool and house for garden.

This could be very versatile if one side was plain and the other side was decorated with "stuff." ((Saw something similar with "The Crucible" at PHC.))

Outdoors: Firepit Roundup

Square fire pit with grill and built in seating. The panelled wall being the bench makes the area appear cozy like an outdoor lounge room
