Why You Should Include a Pool in Your Plans When Building a New Home

Building a new home is an exciting journey. Every step is filled with possibilities, from selecting the perfect location to designing your dream living space. However, if you’ve ever considered adding a pool to your property, there’s a compelling reason to think about more than just your house – why not include your pool in the plan as well?

Aqua Living Pools works closely with builders to incorporate pools for new homes into the initial plans. Building a pool at the same time as your home also means you can customise every aspect of the pool’s design. You can choose the size, shape, materials, and features that align perfectly with your vision.

By adding a pool to your house build, you can increase the property value and enhance your quality of life at the same time. A well-designed pool becomes a private oasis where you can relax, exercise, and create cherished memories with family and friends.

When Should You Build Your Pool?

The timing of your pool construction is a crucial consideration. Here are some factors to help you decide when to build your pool:

During Initial Construction: 

One of the most significant advantages of building your pool alongside your new home is the opportunity for cohesive design. With both projects under one overarching plan, you can create a property that flows seamlessly indoors and outdoors, with your pool’s design complementing the architectural style of your house.

Imagine stepping onto a beautifully designed pool deck from your stylish living room through large sliding glass doors. The cohesive design ensures that your property’s aesthetics are elevated, enhancing your entire space’s visual appeal and usability.

After Home Construction: 

Building the pool after your home is complete is another option. This approach allows you to take your time designing the pool and assessing how it fits with your property. However, it can lead to longer project timelines, increase your budget and may require modifications to your landscaping that should have been considered in the initial construction phase. 


In Phases:

Some homeowners opt to build their pool in phases, especially if they have budget constraints. You can start with the pool shell and basic features and add enhancements later. This phased approach provides flexibility but may result in higher overall costs.

Benefits of Including a Pool in Your Building Plans

Building pools for new homes and including this in your building plans offers a range of benefits. Here are our top 5 reasons to consider building a pool during your new home’s construction. 

1. Cost Efficiency: Building your pool alongside home construction can be more cost-effective. It reduces labour, equipment, and material costs, maximising your budget’s efficiency.

2. Streamlined Financing: Integrated financing options simplify budgeting. You can secure a single loan for your home and pool, making financial management more straightforward.

3. Seamless Design: Coordinated planning ensures that your pool and home design harmonise, creating a visually cohesive property that flows indoors and outdoors.

4. Shared Resources: Construction equipment and labour can be efficiently shared between projects, optimising resource usage and minimising idle time.

5. Time Efficiency: Simultaneous construction shortens the timeline, allowing you to move into your new home and enjoy your pool sooner.

Incorporating a pool into your building plans is a strategic decision that can elevate your property’s value, aesthetics, and functionality. It offers financial advantages, design cohesion, and the opportunity to enjoy your dream home and pool sooner. 

When considering the best time to build your pool, weigh factors such as budget, timeline, and immediate needs to make an informed choice that aligns with your vision.
