With the owner of Tuskes Homes as the client, as the client, this project quickly became one of the most intricate custom-pool designs that B&B Custom Pools has ever built. The 900 square-foot, freeform-shaped pool has it all: a 240 square-foot sun shelf, a raised spa and custom waterfalls in both the pool and spa. B&B worked with Colt Hershinger of Eden Easton Landscaping, who did the flume slide and boulder work.

Rustic & Modern
An integral part of this project was the customer’s request for a custom, one-of-a-kind outdoor living space, incorporating a mixture of high-end materials with contrasting elements and textures. Pappas Landcare & Construction designed an open-beam roof structure—bringing a unique touch to the natural living space—that would keep the client out of the elements while having an open-air feeling. Additionally, custom lighting and ventilation were installed to bring the indoor feel to the outdoors. Pappas chose a non-wood decking that would reduce future maintenance and give a richer tone to the overall color scheme. A non-wood wall was also installed around the hot tub to provide privacy. The hardscaping phase of this project included a paver patio, made of large simulated flagstones in earth tones, as well as veneer stone around the bar, kitchen and pillars to complete the rustic but modern look. The finishing touches included complementary landscaping around the pool that was installed by Blue Haven Pools, the installation of security cameras, appliances, movable propane heating sources and the grill.

A local leader in cost-effective construction, Monogram Custom Homes and Pools has designed and sold over 200 swimming pools that use at least 75 percent less electricity and energy than traditional pools. The customer’s savings are tangible and documented: Their use of hydronic heat pumps, LED lights, variable speed pumps and 90-degree elbows saves customers roughly $3,000 annually. Additionally, Pennsylvania Power and Light (PPL) accepted this builder’s suggestion to offer a rebate on each energy star-rated pool pump that they install, rewarding customers with a $150 thank-you check. This pool includes an iPhone-controlled automation system that automatically turns off devices if left on too long, and has the ability to monitor pool powerconsumption, heating control and all chemical levels, allowing customers to easily turn on and off heaters and lights. Monogram’s pools are no morecomplicated to build than traditional ones, but they allow customers to enjoy their purchases without having to worry about excessive energy costs.
