Wooden Backyard Deck Transforms Into Luxurious Pool
Homes| | By Jason Owen
Having a pool in your backyard is a modern luxury that isn’t as unattainable as it once was. It’s no longer reserved solely for the denizens of the social elite. Many homes have pools nowadays, but with that luxury comes a price.
Keeping the water clean and debris-free is a chore. Pool covers are a hassle and less than efficient. Of course, having a proper filtration system helps immensely, but the best ones are expensive to install and maintain. Those in the highest level of the socioeconomic class can afford the most efficient, less-burdensome covers and cleaning systems that those of us in the 99 percent cannot.
As perhaps the prime example of pool eccentricities, take this wooden deck design from AGOR Engineering Enterprises Ltd., which uses a hydraulic system to lower a wooden deck into a pool. Yes, that’s right. This deck becomes a pool.
AGOR Engineering specializes in “moveable floors” and has constructed them for many private residencies in both Israel and London, but this pool design is simply amazing to see. How cool is this?
Unfortunately, AGOR’s installations are not for the modest middle class. They come with a hefty price tag of nearly half a million dollars per deck. Oh well! The American dream is alive and thriving, right? We just need a few more years to save up.
