Rocky River Exterior craftsman pool

Rocky River Exterior

The development of the architecture and the site were critical to blend the home into this well established, but evolving, neighborhood. One goal was to make the home appear as if it had been there 20 years. The home is designed on just under an acre of land with a primary concern of working around the old, established trees (all but one was saved). The exterior style, driven by the client’s taste of a modern Craftsman home, marries materials, finishes and technologies to create a very comfortable environment both inside and out. Sustainable materials and technologies throughout the home create a warm, comfortable, and casual home for the family of four. Considerations from air quality, interior finishes, exterior materials, plan layout and orientation, thermal envelope and energy efficient appliances give this home the warmth of a craftsman with the technological edge of a green home.

I have a questions about the trees.. - Did you run into a lot of the tree roots when building this pool? Did the trees suffer a lot of damage? Looks like you came pretty close to the critical root zone. This is my major concern about my trees, digging next year.
