Creating this backyard retreat took a fraction of the time it took the homeowners to dream up the idea. Since 1994 she wanted a swimming pool while he was more interested in the outdoor living space. They got both.

The outcome completely fulfilled their aspirations. She got a sparkling swimming pool with plenty of space for lounging and sunbathing while he got his entertaining space – not one, but two outdoor televisions housed within two separate living spaces. With a full kitchen and outdoor bathroom, there really is no need to go indoors.

The sprawling, wood-burning, fireplace under the captivating dark pine-paneled ceiling makes this atypical “pool house” a place for winter enjoyment as well. The detail-oriented work of Nathan Voss Construction is seen throughout. The custom concrete fireplace mantle craftily corresponds with the material and design of the gorgeous stamped concrete decking offering a rustic feeling amidst the luxury. The strategically placed LED deck lighting provides both safety and a fun-filled atmosphere where all the features of the retreat are highlighted beautifully.

While the younger generation of this sports-loving family might have preferred to have this backyard as kids, mom says,
“It keeps them coming back.” This retreat is a place for family to come together and watch the big game projected over the outdoor entertainment system while grandkids swim and frolic. The wave shaped fiberglass pool, surrounded by contrasted shades of masonry work, provides an inviting view from any angle. Pools Made Possible of Jefferson City provided this exceptional centerpiece for the outdoor landscape.

You will find quality and durability in the outdoor kitchen space. The cabinetry is made from cypress, known for its water and rot-resistance, perfect for withstanding countless Missouri summers. The brick enclosure with attractive curved windows and doorways, coupled with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops offer the perfect setting for dining and conversation with friends and family.

In a time when our houses serve as our place of employment and entertainment, in addition to the place we live, it becomes essential to have options for escaping to other environments. This backyard retreat provides the homeowners the picture-perfect environment for that reprieve.
