Why I want a swimming pool
Article by: Ric Wiley
So you want a swimming pool. I know I do but that's because my
body is getting flabbier as I get older and I want a pool for 2
reasons. I hope by exercising in a swimming pool it will tone my
muscles, help me loose some of my flab and make me fitter and
the other reason is I don't want to scare people when I use a
shared pool. When I'm in a public swimming pool people think
there's a whale loose in it when it's only me. Oh dear, I think
I need to diet as well.
I spent last summer , How To Buy A Portable Hot Tub or Home Spa vacationing in Europe. I started in London -
it rained, travelled through France and stayed in an old
converted remote farmhouse with its own pool and then travelled
down through Spain to the Costa del Sol where I then spent 3
weeks in a villa high in the Andalusian mountains with stunning
sea and mountain views and of course its own swimming pool. Both
pools were unique and were self-builds. The swimming pool in
Spain had been built by the villa owner, a great guy called
John, who was an ex pat builder from London. The swimming pool
he had built was 25 ft by 32 ft. It wasn't square, the floor
, SIMPLE INTERIOR DESIGN TIPS wasn't level, the tiling , A Quick Guide to Plastic Mailboxes wasn't level, the slope of the floor
, Hanging Drywall wasn't even, and you know, it was the best swimming pool I've
ever been in. It was great.
I had travelled to Spain to see the area as its somewhere I had
always wanted to visit on a vacation and do you know, I need to
go back as I didn't see a great deal of it. I spent most of the
3 weeks I was there in the pool. The swimming pool had what they
call , Beds, Beds And Beds! The Many Choices We Have in England, rustic , The Use of Glass in Architecture charm. The sides were not straight, the
floor , How to Estimate Home Appliance Energy Use tiles , Getting a Handle on Cabinet Knobs were slightly uneven and the floor , Home Improvement Costs for 2006 sloped ever so
slightly from side to side but taken with the converted stables,
now a villa, and the country setting it worked and worked very
well. It was the best swimming pool I've ever been in. If I was
building , Electronic Air Cleaners a swimming pool this is how I would build it. However,
a swimming pool like this would not work with a new build house, , Toilet Seat Covers And How They Can Protect You.
it just wouldn't suit it.
Take the swimming pool in France. This was much more of a modern
pool but again was in a countryside setting so a really formal
new swimming pool wouldn't work and I'm pleased to say that this
wasn't a formal swimming pool although at least everything was
straight like the sides of the pool. Again, the design , Safety & Windows Installation was
something I had never seen before. The swimming pool sloped down
from the shallow end but at a certain point, the deep part fell
away on all 4 sides to become 12 ft deep. However, it had an
underwater ledge about 3 ft below the surface all the way round
the pool. It was great for chasing the kids round the pool, or
for them chasing me, and we had a fantastic holiday with 2
The trouble was though that although I had a very long vacation,
I didn't see a great deal of France or Spain except when we were
travelling. The reason, well I'm sure you can guess. If not
here's a clue. I had 2 fantastic swimming pools. I am sure I can
describe the swimming pools better than the countryside local , Siding for Homeowners to
where I stayed. I'll have to go back next year and try again but
I know I'll be distracted by the swimming pools when choosing
somewhere to stay. Then again I could try a mountain cabin with
a lake to swim in. That's something I've always thought would be
fun. It's a tough choice, lake or swimming pool. Maybe I can try
both or better still perhaps its time I built my own swimming
pool at home. , How To Take Care Of Your Cuckoo Clock
