Okay, so our backyard is not done yet – but we are getting closer and closer! One of the biggest things left to do is landscaping and I’m hoping to get that done soon. We moved into this home last April [right before I had Sophia😩] and we didn’t even start our backyard area until mid-summer. By August, our little ‘poolhouse’ was there but we had not installed the fireplace, fans, outdoor heaters, etc. Slowly but surely we got most of that stuff done. In fact, when they were installing the fireplace – they realized that had not run a gas line out there yet and we wanted the fireplace to be a real one but also have the gas option. SO, they had to dig up the backyard during the fall to install the gas line – so you can kind of see in some of these photos how the yard looks off in certain spots. I actually snapped these photos at night time – just on my iPhone so they are not the best photos but you can still get the gist of it. I have been shocked at the amount of questions we get in regard to the things in the backyard so I thought I’d pull this subscriber e-mail together ASAP so you guys can get early access to our backyard decor! I wish the photos were prettier though!😊
The pool house area is not an actual “pool house” – it does not have a bathroom or anything. We just wanted a place to sit and have dinners when we have guests over and we also wanted a place to hang out outside during the fall & winter. The backside of it is all storage and back behind there is a basketball court. We installed floodlights to the back of the pool house so that the kids in my family can still play basketball at night time. Luke actually loves that area – he rides his tractor in circles and pretends like it is his farm!😊 It is really cute! We also just installed our speaker system outside right before quarantine began. The speakers start at the house and end back where the basketball hoop is and the subwoofers are near the sitting area. Initially I was not going to install a system just because I knew it would be expensive but having to charge little mini-speakers got old so we just did it and love it. The speakers are made for outdoor areas and patios and focus the sound only where they face – meaning that the neighbors can not hear our music! Nor can I hear it when I am inside!

I DIDN’T realize baskets came in the sunbrella line. Thank you for sharinG those!
Of course!! 🙂
I have a question for you about your house. We are going to begin building a new home sometime later this month, and I was wondering if the outside of your home is stucco? We are wanting a material that provides a smooth look. Part of it is going to be stone, but I love the look of the off-white you have. If not stucco, then what material is it? Thanks for any help!
Hi! Yes it is stucco!
can you share where you exterior fixtures are from please!!
I’ve linked everything I could on the blog. You can click HOME or use the search bar.
Here’s what I love about your backyard pool: the wrought iron chairs and pool-side lounge chairs. The fireplace is breathtaking. Just the perfect setting for a family dinner! I love the monochromatic effect of the house tiles and furniture. What a brilliant choice! Is that oval window a real one?
ahh thank you! 💕 yes it is!
Beautiful backyard. May i ask what your pool finish color. I love the color. Tropics blue maybe?
I think it is lagoon! 💕 Hope that helps!
Tour backyard is beautiful!! We are building a pool right now and are searching for outdoor speakers. Which speakers did y’all get?
We did an entire system that syncs with our alarm company! It’s more commercial grade!
I was wondering if you have any pictures of the storage area on the back of the pool house? Thank you in advance!
Hi! I randomly came across your blog while searching for pool ideas. I love your decking! Can you tell me what finish is on the concrete and what color it is? Thanks!
Beautiful pool. We’re currently designing ours. Do you happen to know what kind of coping you used? Also, is it all brushed concrete? Colored? Thanks!
What size is your pool? Thanks!
