Today I am sharing our 12×13 pool house with kitchen and bathroom along with our plans for a new addition and outdoor bar. I have been buried in projects and paperwork so finding time to edit pictures and write a blog posts has been a challenge!
Here is our existing 12×13 pool house that features a small 1/2 bath and kitchen space.
Kitchen and Bathroom Pool House Design
I snapped these pictures just as Spring was starting here in Massachusetts and man, they look so dismal!
What a difference green grass, blue skies and sun make!
The existing pool house was here when we bought the house and it’s been a great spot!
I love how cute it is inside and we plan to leave the current footprint as is.
Pool house with kitchen
It’s super cute inside and I love how the previous owners added light brown stained pine planks to walls along with a wood floor and ceiling.
The 1/2 bathroom is right behind the closed door in this picture.
The existing pool house is about 12×13 in size and our plan is to add a 16×28 addition off the side of it encompassing a small portion of the paver patio.
This is the backside of the pool house and the two windows showing below, will be removed as that is where the addition will connect to the existing pool house.
The furthest window (near the house) will be replaced with a 40″ wide barn sliding door as the new entrance from the existing pool house to the new addition.
Here is a shot of our patio from last summer that shows the current pool house (far left of picture below).
Pool House Ideas with bar
So to recap, the current 12×13 pool house with kitchen and bathroom is growing to incorporate an outdoor bar and interior living space.
The new 16×28 pool house addition will add an interior (weather tight) addition that will feature a small living room area and indoor bar.
There will be two full view glass exterior doors (on either side of the indoor bar) that will lead to an outdoor area that will have an outdoor bar (tied into the indoor bar/counter style) and a seating area with a tv.
Jim has been dying to start this pool house and outdoor bar project since he moved in last Summer and his dream is finally coming true 😂.
One of the biggest issues we wanted to solve was not having access to the pool house from the pool area.
The new addition will now be directly off the pool area and allow access to the bathroom which we are pretty excited about!
