This man could not have his own pool at home so he ended up building his own pool
When we think about the luxury life, the first thing that comes to our mind is a huge mansion with many rooms, with several garages (in which there are several cars and all sports convertibles) and finally a huge swimming pool. We can add to this list a happy and prosperous family and we mean by that, well-educated children and a lovely wife. You like this picture, don’t you? Indeed, that is the dream of many, although only in very few cases it becomes reality. Unfortunately for most of us, it is usually an unattainable dream. But on the other hand, does that mean that we can not dream about it even for a moment? "Touch" the wealth even in a metaphorical way?
Those were probably the questions that came to mind of Jose Franco of Curitiba in Brazil and it was a general idea that illuminated his great feat. His family had always wanted to have a luxurious pool in the garden of their house, but because it was very expensive they could not afford it and that's why their dream was not fulfilled for a very long time. Until one day...

Having a pool is the dream of many families. It's something that makes your life happy because it lets you cool down during all those hot summer days. In addition, it is a great way to spend time for all children. Is there anything better than spending the whole day in the swimming pool with your friends? Maybe there is something else, but our idea is just perfect. Unfortunately, it is not so easy to have a pool for both financial and legal reasons. To have a pool you obviously have to dig a huge hole. That costs a lot of money and work. In many countries to do something like this, you need permits from the appropriate government institutions.
And once you have the pool, you also need a deck! We do not mean that it is absolutely necessary to build it for a pool, of course not! However, it is a detail that changes a lot and you do not really need to spend a lot of money or need advanced skills. It is more than enough if you have wood and a bit of creativity. José Franco demonstrates this to us in a perfect way...
Check out what he did!
Look at the picture below. He bought it as an accessory for the garden. The walls, floor, and supports were all made of plastic. He had to put a plastic tarp underneath to separate the lawn from his large bathtub. As you can see, it's nothing out of this world. In fact, it can be quite boring compared to the image we have described in the previous pages. We do not intend to despise José Franco's pool, in fact, it's quite the contrary. What he has done with it is something just you have to see!
Perhaps among the readers of this article, there are many who dream of a pool like the one above. However, José Franco felt he wanted to modernize his pool. Not being able to get the money and the necessary permits, he decided to avoid all problems with his imagination, effort, and dedication. He bought the necessary materials and set to work.
Now, after an introduction, it is time to discover this wonderful creation …
After placing the plastic tarp under the pool, he began to build a wooden scaffold around to secure the pool. As you can see in the below photo, it is a meticulously prepared construction, considering every detail. Actually, once you have the supports, the task is almost finished. Notice that at this time the pool does not give the same impression as before. It is obvious that we are only half way through and that is why it still does not look like it is anything great, but you can already notice that it is going to be something truly incredible.
José Franco's next step was to install a wooden platform to all these supports so that he and his family and friends could lie down comfortably on the deck on hot sunny days, accompanied by ice-cold refreshments. Isn't that a lovely sight? The only thing left to do was to add a small but crucial detail.
Want to know what that was?
In order to comfortably climb the platform, a small staircase was needed. The man also thought about that detail and as you can see below, three lovely steps allow the entrance and exit of the platform to the pool. What do you think about the final result? The pool is finished and now has a completely different look. It looks very elegant and even makes the whole garden look much more luxurious. We repeat it again: the best thing of all is that you do not need huge amounts of money or advanced knowledge of construction. With a little creativity and basic materials, you can make your own luxury pool, and it's cheap! The fun you will have with it will be indescribable. We can assure you.
