Jen + Raymond Cleveland, Oh

The construction of the couple's pool house came along in much the same way as many other aspects of their home. Built mostly of salvaged materials and parts, the size and shape of the pool house was dictated by wall sections that Raymond had found in a dumpster on a job site. As Jennifer adds, "a friend of ours was taking his deck apart and gave us all the lumber for free, and that became our roofing material. My neighbor across the street from us just happened to come over and tell me how he needed to get a new shed door. I asked him if I could take a look at it, and here it was an old dutch door. I asked if I could have it and bless his heart, he gave it to me."

The pool house's roof and shingle-style siding mirror that of the main house, thanks to left over material from when the home was built years ago. "Since we own Sharkey and Son Construction we had the ability to do it all ourselves," Jennifer says. "So we poured the concrete floor and put the walls up. It's still a work in progress with things I have to do to it, but it's definitely a fun story to tell since 90% of it was free."

The pool house is also a mix of salvaged materials and parts; Harrison-Ciacchi estimates that about 90 percent of the materials were free. Its size and shape were dictated by wall sections that Ciacchi found in a Dumpster on a jobsite. A friend who was deconstructing his deck provided the lumber for free, while a neighbor contributed the Dutch door from his own remodeled shed. The pool house’s roof and shingle-style siding mirror that of the main house, thanks to material left over from building the home years before. Harrison-Ciacchi and her husband, who own Sharkey & Son Construction, did the work themselves. “We poured the concrete floor and put the walls up. It’s still a work in progress with things I have to do to it,” she says.
