Courtyard House Plans provide the perfect space for pools and water features. Plunge pools, for instance, have become quite popular with homeowners in recent years. These pools are largely preferred because of their small space requirements, easier maintenance, and their need for less water.
Plunge pools can serve many purposes. In general, a plunge pool is a small, shallow pool for cooling off and relaxing instead of swimming. In many cases, these pools are used for therapeutic purposes. A cold plunge pool will keep water temperatures around 50 degrees for those with inflammatory issues or muscle strain. And like a hot tub, which is usually smaller, thermal plunge pools keep the water warm or hot for relaxation and to ease tight muscles.
The 18’ x 18’ foot courtyard with adjacent loggia provides a private retreat for the homeowner, with space for a pool, surrounding garden and outdoor kitchen. This home plan features a cabana with full bath, and a total of 1892 square feet of living space.
Lap pools are also an option for homeowners who desire water for exercise, as well as for relaxation. Designed to meet the needs of a variety of lifestyles, Courtyard House Plans come in many shapes and sizes. Take for instance the large and lovely “Wulfert Point”.
