Cabana Construction

While this family was having a new in ground pool installed, I was contracted to build a cabana for them. This would be a little more elaborate than the average change room, with a mini kitchen as well as a 2-peice washroom.

The first step in this endeavor was to locate the plumbing and electrical services.

The hydro line, as well as a water line, was brought from the house - almost 100' away. These lines were buried two feet below the finished grade.

With all the underground work complete, the form for the concrete pad was prepared.

Before the 12" thick, steel reinforced concrete pad was poured, this base of compacted gravel was prepared. It was another 12" thick. Should go nowhere for a long time!

The 2" x 6" walls going up. This building would be fully insulated and have electric baseboard heat.

The rough framing is complete.

The wall sheathing doubled as the exterior wall finish for this building. It is rough faced pine which comes in 4' x 8' sheets. These panels have routed grooves every 8" to give it a vertical siding look. In this case it mimicked the wood siding finish on the main house.

Everything all done - just in time to enjoy the pool!

The soffits, fascia and evestrough were painted to match the siding.
