Getting the Skinny on Backyard Pools – a bit of a Before & After Story

Thinking Backyard Pool? You’ve weighed the pros and cons and now, it’s all about the design, build process. At Paradise Restored, we think ‘Pools are tops’ in water-feature-heaven. Many combine spas into the pool design to add the soak-factor-ability. Some have fun slides, shooting water spouts, kiddie wading pools or shallow lounge pools. Follow our info-tour into 3 backyard pool During & After tales.

Swimming Pool WaterfallA Boy and his Pool

Fun Process, eh? Construction during winter and early spring brings summer-time results. This little one is a swim-nut and loves pool time, spa time, and more pool time. See how it all came about in Nicole Court Property and Pool Party . . .

You’ll see how these homeowners opted for a hidden slide under a waterfall. We love Before & Afters showing you all the nitty-gritty details!

This man & his dogs enjoy pooltime and who wouldn’t in this backyard pool?  The bubbling hot-tub, sheer descent water features and fire bowls, the amazing diving board. Notice the projector screen movie theatre in the outdoor living room, kitchen and bar.  Can you say Ridiculous Remodel? It has our Two-Thumbs Up!

We shouldn’t/couldn’t/wouldn’t do a pool-tour without the McFee property makeover. It’s a beauty and even caught the eye of HGTV to become a 2019 Award Nominee. In the heart of a Gresham neighborhood sits this fabulous backyard pool and living space.
