Pool House and Terrace

Boonville, CA - Completed 2005

This pool and terrace project is an addition to a hillside home in the hills above the Anderson Valley. The owner wanted a pool, a jacuzzi, and a pool house with kitchen and bath. The site was steep, and the grading and concrete work were challenging. A pathway and stair lead down from the main house to the pool terrace, and a curving staircase leads further down the hillside to the smaller terrace with a jacuzzi. A curving retaining wall embraces the main terrace and leads onto a path to the landscaped hillside.

A poolside café-style kitchen is housed in one pool house, and bathroom and storage is in another. The pool houses have steep shed roofs, and are constructed with wood and concrete.
