Wouldn’t you love to go swimming in December?  With short days and cold nights this might be a foreign concept unless you have a membership to the local YMCA.   A steel pool house conservatory is the perfect answer to extend your swimming season (indefinitely!).   The spacious swimming pool enclosure below contains the swimming pool, a spa and ample space for entertaining or just relaxing around the interior fireplace.

The tradition of building a structure to enclose both public and private swimming pools is actually centuries old – dating back to the Great Roman Empire.  Roman bath houses were also important drivers in the evolution of architecture offering the first dome structures in Classical architecture.  These bath houses were built using millions of fireproof terracotta bricks and the finished buildings were very lavish with fine mosaic floors, marble-covered walls and decorative statues.

Tanglewood works closely with your team to design and build a one-of-a-kind, unique to you structure, utilizing the highest quality materials backed by over twenty years of specialized experience.  Tanglewood’s unparalleled attention to detail, such as cast iron and steel parts with forged curls and intricate rosettes, is reminiscent of the great glass houses of the nineteenth century.

Whether it is an expansive, elegant space with room for entertaining and exotic plants or just a more simple design for your lap pool, Tanglewood’s team of architects and engineers will expertly guide you through the design and development process and then our team of craftsmen bring the drawings to life with installation on your site.  Tanglewood works seamlessly with your team of architects and designers and are the time-proven experts in these potentially challenging structures.  Issues such as heating and cooling, wiring and structural loading can be difficult when you consider the fact that conservatories (and pool enclosures) are not constructed with typical or standard 2” x 4″.   Tanglewood recommends bringing an expert in early on to help navigate and guide the project.

Enjoy the benefits of summer year round with no more worries about rain, leaves or insects and eliminate the chore of opening and closing your pool as summer comes to a close.  Don’t just dream of swimming in December – let’s make it a reality for 2015!
