Pool and Patio Tour: So Cal So Cool.

We spend a lot of time outdoors here in Southern California for good reason. Today, we visit the pool and patio of my Mum and stepfather Tosh. Their house and landscape have evolved over a span of 25 years.

Architect Pat Killen (http://www.studio9one2.com/) designed a new entry, living room and deck for what was once a "plain jane, L shaped" ranch house. Talk about an upgrade...

The original pool was too large for the hillside, it was made smaller and safer. The stone planter/wall and rockery were designed by my Mum and Tosh.

Care to dive in anyone? "No canon balling during happy hour"!

I love this railing, the butterfly roof, the cantilevered deck and the rockery in the foreground.

The family is just about to swing into full time party mode because the rellies are hopping over the pond for their hols. Cheers!
