Every beautiful pool needs a beautiful pool house. But every beautiful pool house doesn’t need a pool. These structures are a lot more versatile than their names might suggest.

Do you need a pool to have a poolhouse?

It may surprise you to find out that the answer is “no”. More and more people these days are catching on to the concept of throwing fabulous parties around their pool house – with or without any nearby swimming possibilities. How can you join the club of in-the-know pool house owners? Consider these possibilities…

Why not add in a screened porch along with an enclosed space to create a four-season entertainment space? Make your backyard building perfect for spring soirees, summer picnics, fall parties and even winter get-togethers. There’s no need to worry about the weather after install climate control measures to keep you cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold.

There are plenty of other features to consider, such as electrical access that’s perfect for enabling mood lighting and sound. And don’t forget about the convenience of adding a wet bar or small kitchen.

And, of course, if you ever decide to build a pool, you’re already ahead of the game.

Here’s what your new pool house will automatically include:

  • Roof is built with 2×4 rafters 16 in. O.C. and 1/2″ exterior-grade TechShield sheeting with lifetime (limited) architectural asphalt shingles
  • Walls have 2×4 studs 16 in. O.C. and TechShield wall sheathing
  • Floor is built with 2×4 pressure-treated floor joists 16 in. O.C. and 5/8″ exterior-grade plywood on top of 4×4 pressure-treated runners
  • Doors are non-prehung fiberglass or wood with a diamond-plate sill protector
  • Vertical slider windows come with screens and window trim

Also, consider these options and upgrades:
