What are the footers FOR?

My cousin Laura was kind enough to ask the question that all 3 of my readers must have been wondering… What in the world are the footers for?

Well, the answer is that there’s a pool house that goes with the pool.  I refer to it as the barn sometimes, but it’s really a pool house of sorts… that will kind of look like a modernized barn in the same sense that our house looks like a modernized farm house.

So, without further ado, here’s a model of the barn and pool from a while ago.  As you can see, the pool shape has changed a bit… But most of the rest of it is just about right.

One of the primary purposes of the barn is to provide shade for people by the pool.  (The barn is to the south of the pool.)  The front porch is about 30 feet wide and 10 feet deep, so it should do that well.  It’s tough to see from here, but there are glass garage doors on the east, north, and west sides of the barn, so that it can be opened up to be a huge outdoor room.

Taking that a bit further, there will be a changing room and some storage toward the back of the barn, in addition to a greenhouse (of which you can barely catch a peek in this image).  The actual interior space of the barn will be 20 x 30, excluding the greenhouse and front porch.

So, there it is!  You can see just how crazy this project is in total.  And now you have some sense of where it’s actually headed.
