Rue Group,Inc.

The dream for this family was somehow fitting a custom pool, spa, fireplace, larger patio areas, an outdoor kitchen, a large serving bar, formal gardens, and also some grass for the kids to play on all in a very small back yard! It was a challenge but all was accomplished with beautiful results. In fact, this project is featured in the 2009 Fall issue of Luxury Pools Magazine

Perfect pool! What is the pool depth, particularly near spa end?

Sorry for the late reply... The client has younger children, so we kept the deep end near the spa only 5.5' deep so an adult can still stand.

Thank you for your question. This photo does not show the entire backyard or the large outdoor cooking area and bar but to answer your question this type of project here in Southern California falls into what we consider a Medium Scale project with a construction budget ranging from $75,000 to $250,000. This project fell into the medium range of this budget.
