A Pool House Story

There was once a house... A pool house that looked like this...

It was made for the dogs the former owners loved dearly...

 that they gave this huge house to their dogs
 But alas, though close to the pool....

It is no use at all... for it is dark, musty and and oh, so ugly...

Then we came along, to save this little house from it's woes
We worked and hired Kuya Freddie, to save this space and make it no waste

We added a shower, plastered the walls white..

Hubby put in a new sink with heater inside..

After all the work, and cleaning we did
Here she is now, ready for our kids...

For showers and changing...

For drying or sitting...

Now guests are welcome anytime...

To change and chill, hang-out and eventually swim...

Even kids well or sick, can swim and play with no fear...

Supplies abound to block the sun even mosquitos and insects and germs are no match for ready scouts... 

And so this little house is now a welcome sight,
for anyone who wants to come,

A happy ending indeed for a once woeful abode, 
now will be filled with splash and laughter of old.
Oh this little pool house smile and take pride for you are now considered our family's little haven by the pool... :-)

Ok, you realize I'm no poet right?! I think I better stick to decorating! LOL! :-)

Have a wonderful summery day!
