Winner: Southeast Region

Lake House Pool

This house is set on a beautiful lake property in southeastern Wisconsin. The owners wanted their kids to be able to swim year around, so they built an indoor pool.

With the help of the pool installer, they came up with an idea of removing the back patio and installing the pool with sliding doors for year-round use.

The first step was to remove the concrete patio. The contractor vacuumed out the stone under the slabs. The builder wanted to leave the outer concrete wall in as part of the pool foundation. Concrete was pumped in for the pool floor. The contractor then installed rebar and pumped concrete for the interior pool walls.

110 cubic yards of concrete were poured. The mix was a 4500 psi + mid-range water reducer for the floors. The contractor used an 8.5 bag shotcrete mix plus 1 ½ lbs Micro- Fiber. The concrete was heated and had Non-Chloride Accelerator for early set. 5 lbs of structural fiber was used in the mix.

The pool highlights an efficient way of using concrete for a feature that will entertain for years to come.
