Distance - What's the distance between the pool house and the main house
   Comment   January 28, 2014
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
I would guess around 30'-40' +/-, this project is close to 15 years old and I do not have the original plans any longer. It is kind of irrelevant, because the pool house is considered an accessory structure. So you need to speak with your local zoning office and find out what setbacks and distances are required/allowed first.

Don't make your decisions based upon this specific layout, it may not be the appropriate way to go for your needs, budget, etc.

Plus, the overall design you desire may be very different, like the size of pool, pool
house, pool deck, distance from your home, required living space, etc.

What are the dimensions of this pool

This project was completed over twelve years ago, so my recollection is 50'x25', with an auto cover and independent spa.

If you read the previous comment above it will help explain and answer part of your question. The pool house was designed and built by a company called Porraro Associates, by brothers Matt (the designer) and Greg (the builder), but they are no longer partners or in business. The pool was 50' in length, so my guess is that the pool house was 30' x 20'. On the front right corner was an indoor/outdoor kitchen, in the center was the primary/open living space and on the left side was a changing/bathroom.

I do not think their website is active any more, but you can check. It was a great structure and project.
