The project reveals keep on coming, and we aren’t mad about it! Do you or someone you know have an indoor pool that you simply don’t know what to do with? It could be that you just don’t use it anymore or it’s causing issues in your house that is beyond your control! Our clients at the #maplegrovemancave were dealing with just that, and we completely reenvisioned their secondary structure that was housing their indoor pool. Let’s take a peek at this huge transformation and discuss the details below!

Our clients came to us concerning an indoor pool structure off their home that needed to be removed. The pool was causing a buildup of mold and moisture issues, and they were desperate to get rid of it. They wanted to transform the space into a “mancave meets garage” for the family to work on cars and entertain guests!

In addition to converting the pool room to a garage, our clients wanted to reconfigure and update the attached bathroom. The original bathroom had several small rooms within one space, making it feel small and cramped. To open it up, we reconfigured the layout and removed one shower (there were two previously). This allowed for more vanity space and additional storage space, all while keeping a large, luxurious steam shower.

This project was not without its challenges. We had to fill in the existing pool, ensuring it could withstand the weight of multiple vehicles while including hidden drains that tied into the existing pool deck. There was mold throughout that had to be mitigated, and all new mechanicals had to run.


The #maplegrovemancave was a complete 180 transformation! What do you guys think about this modern man cave meets garage? Leave your thoughts below, and make sure to follow along with us over on Instagram for more frequent updates and progress on our other projects!

    I have read your article carefully and I agree with you very much. This has provided a great help for my thesis writing, and I will seriously improve it. However, I don’t know much about a certain place. Can you help me?
