Stephanie's House - Exterior

The conversion of this historic Victorian carriage house (a City of LA Monument) into a new guest house/pool cabana included the addition of new decks, a 50' lap pool, and a new spa with integrated fire pit. The pool aligns with the french doors leading out from the living room of the main house, leaving room on one side for wood decks and planters and on the other for a series of concrete pads designed to accomodate pool-side lounging.

thank you! Would you let me know if it holds up well, or does it show cracks after awhile?

The house has been sold, and I am not in contact with the new owners so I haven't seen it lately. However, generally concrete will have some small cracks after a while. The cracking can be managed by including a series of control joints to subdivide it into smaller sections. Our pool edge is actually cantilevered and it has a lot of reinforcing in it so it may not have cracked as much as a straight slab on grade might.

These rocks are readily available - we got them at Bourget Brothers in Santa Monica.

I would like to email you photos and dimensions of my space as well. I would like to build a lap pool and spa - love the fire pit! On a noisy street so water feature would be nice. How do I reference this pool, in a future email, so you know which one I like?

great lap pool. - what are the dimensions and the materials?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Low lying. Forgo the traditional fireplace for a modern in-ground version instead. Tip: Consider your family's needs. Although this fireplace is beautiful, it isn't particularly kid friendly.
If you're a bit of a daredevil, bring the flames to you by including a cleverly placed fire pit.
