In an earlier post on the Cabana Framing we saw how the concrete slab for the bar area was recessed to give room for the pool patio stone work.
Above you see the stone mason bring the dry-set Norwegian Buff stone right into the bar area.
This stone is a type of quartzite. It’s quite hard and as a result takes time to cut.
The stone is set with no joints, except where the dry-set patio stones meet the pool coping.
Here’s why this is so important:
The coping stone is cemented to the pool “beam” and is, therefore, one with the pool structure.
Whereas the dry-set patio is independent and like all dry-set construction, will move fractionally with the seasons.
Therefore, there must be a space between the two stone features (i.e. coping and patio) so that any slight movement in the dry-set patio will not touch and dislodge the cemented coping stone.
In this joint space there will be a flexible material installed.
With the patio stone work completed, the carpenters can now continue with the finish details on the exterior and bring their work right down to the patio stone.
All the trim material is Azek, a PVC based product. The look is as beautiful as wood and will last for many years with little to no maintenance.
Here’s the previous post for this project. And here’s the next.
What is the dimensions of the pool house?
The pool house is 12′ X 21′.
Thanks for the reply. One more question about the bar area opening. You say you are using a louvered, stainless steel, overhead door. Just wondering if this is what you did and was this custom made? Does it roll up like a garage door on tracks?
What type of door did you end up using for the bar area? Some sort of a roll up overhead louver door?
Sorry it took some time to get back to you. I wanted to stop by the project and take pictures of the louvered door on the cabana counter area.
One of the pictures has the manufacturer’s label and contact information.
Hope these help:
Hi – I love this concept – it looks beautiful! Would you be willing to share photos of the inside?
Sorry, but unfortunately I don’t have pictures of the cabana’s interior. If the opportunity arises, and I’m on the property, I should get permission to photograph the interior. Naturally, I’m always focused on what’s happening on the outside.
Just wondering about how much on average does a project like this cost?
It’s difficult to say because the way I work on my projects, the clients have direct contracts with the various contractors, i.e. pool builder, cabana builder, hardscape contractor, etc.
Hi, I’m very interested in this style of pool house. Do you have anymore info on this or more recent pictures? In your opinion, how much would this cost to build in an estimated figure. Thanks so much for any info you can give me! I live in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Other folks have asked about this pool house too. Unfortunately, I don’t have more pics.
Your best bet would be to take this picture to an architect just to convey the general concept. And from there, with your input and requirements, a plan can be drawn.
The cost I’m not sure of because the pool house was contracted directly with the homeowner. I can tell you that there is not a bathroom inside. There’s an outside shower (not shown in pic) and the bar has a sink.
I was looking to build this same structure as a pool house behind my house. If you were willing to sell the plans to this one, I would be interested in purchasing them from you.
This cabana was designed by the homeowner’s architect. I believe the house has changed ownership since we did this project 12 years ago.

Landscapes are complex, and shortcomings anywhere in the process can affect the project… and your peace of mind.
My approach is process-oriented. I break things down from planning to implementation — and make sure everyone is kept informed.
My goal is to alleviate concerns such as design decisions, costs, workmanship and material quality. I want folks to stress less and actually enjoy the process.
