Pringle Pool House Head On Copy

Nothing says summer like kids splashing around in a pool–except perhaps an adult party centered around a pool on a balmy summer evening. In either case, a pool house makes everything easier. Whether the pool house is small and simple or includes a full kitchen and guest quarters, having a place to store cold drinks, towels and refreshments makes summer entertaining a lot more fun.

A pool house can be a place to access only the absolute necessities while enjoying the pool, or it can be a destination that allows friends and family to spend the day around the pool and then stay for the night. A well designed pool house can easily double as a guest house for summer and winter use.

    They are both fantastic, but must say the 1st one is off the charts.
    All the best,
