Ready To Design Your Dream Pool?

Getting Started

1. Dreams Checklist

To kick off your project, we invite you to complete our Dreams Checklist. This essential first step helps us grasp the scope of your envisioned pool, considering factors like size, shape, materials, depth, additional features, and the specifics of your property, such as topography and access.


2. Code Search

After submitting your Dreams Checklist, please provide a Plat of Survey. This document, typically received during your property closing, outlines your lot with your home positioned on it. We use this to ensure our designs comply with local regulations and to prepare for our initial consultation. If you’re having trouble locating your Plat of Survey, let us know—we’re here to help!


3. Initial Consultation

Once we complete the code search, a designer will reach out to discuss your project further. During an on-site visit, we’ll delve into the specifics of your site and what you envision for your dream backyard. This meeting concludes with a clear plan for the next steps, whether that’s preparing a preliminary budget or scheduling a design kick-off meeting.


4. Design Kick-Off Meeting

In this meeting, we reaffirm the project’s scope, measure your yard, and note any existing features to create a base map. This serves as the foundation for your preliminary design.


5. Preliminary Design Presentation

Next, we present your custom design through a 3D walkthrough, drawings, and renderings, ensuring it aligns perfectly with your vision before proceeding.

6. Selections

Once the design is finalized, you’ll select the details of your pool, such as liner color and fencing, personalizing key aspects of your new build.


7. Final Budget Approval and Permit Processing

With the design set and selections made, we finalize the budget for approval. Following this, we’ll manage all necessary paperwork and permits, including HOA approvals, and begin sourcing materials for your project.
